Interviewers expect a candidate to be able to answer questions about their employment history in detail. Be prepared to tell the interviewer the names of the companies you worked for, your job title, your starting and ending dates of employment, reasons for leaving*, your job responsibilities and sometimes even your salary for each role.
You’d be surprised how many job applicants fumble when asked about prior employment. Don’t be one of them! Refresh your memory prior to the interview by reviewing your resume so you can accurately speak about your prior work history in detail.
*Think about your reasons for leaving each company and do not speak negatively about your former employer. Beware of your answer! For example, if you left a company because of low salary, termination or a bigger challenge, think about how your answer may appear to the interviewer. Most employers are seeking employees with a history of stability and growth and they may be concerned about hiring you and having you leave them for the above-mentioned answers.
