East Africa: We're Answering Your Toughest Job Interview Questions On Rise and Shine Rwanda

Most job seekers dread the in-person interview. It's tough ticking off your weaknesses and playing up your strengths without coming across as a bragger. Luckily, there's an art to the interview, and preparation can help you sail through challenging questions with smart and succinct answers.

Still, even the most prepared candidates can get tripped up by bizarre or tricky questions. Here are a few tough ones we've come across: How would you explain our product to an 8-year-old? What would the person who likes you least in the world say about you? If you were animal, what would you be and why?

Now it's your turn.

What are the toughest questions you've ever been asked in a job interview? We want to know!

We'll review every single question you submit and select the most popular and the toughest to answer on Rise and Shine Rwanda. Our career experts will walk you through the correct answer to each question and offer added insights on how to really wow your interviewer.
