"As a management trainee, your ultimate goal is to become a manager through your ability to analyze, organize, and collaborate. In an interview context, employers will be interested to see if you are familiar with how they operate, what your motivation is, and the meaning of customer service to you. Often times, you will be responsible for handling difficult customers, so know how you would role-play this scenario. To show that you are up for this job, emphasize that you are up for challenges, multi-tasking, and leadership."
I was randomly asked a question about current events--probably because of my major. I didn't have much of an opinion on the issue because I was a full time university student finishing my senior thesis and applying for jobs.... and the interviewer totally got that and said she could relate when I explained. But the question was asked very seriously and her response was very relaxed. Bizarre.
