U is for… University

U is for… Why did you choose your University?

This question is a popular question for graduates. Recent Graduates (or final year student interviewing for their first job) will have a less ‘on the job’ questions that they can answer so interviewers may ask why they chose a particular university to do their undergrad or postgrad degree. This will be a mix of general interest, understanding a change in geographical location and also gives the candidate an opportunity to demonstrate decision-making skills.

Using your career journal will help you find inspiration for Interview Questions and help you prepare, practice and review your answers. This can be a great technique which is why I have chosen to use the A to Z of Interview Questions Posts as Journal Prompts. If you don’t already have a career journal this is the perfect excuse to get started.
