politics interview questions shared by candidates
Most of the difficult questions were methods questions about my presentation--so those are easy to prepare answers. Some of the harder questions were challenges from the presentation audience on my findings because they found something different to be true.
The key is to know your own stuff REALLY well. You can always defer difficult questions by reinforcing the specific parameters of your research population. What was and wasn't included in the research question. What do you and don't you know.
"What if you were asked to implement a way to connect everything to everything, how would you do it?" (Essentially an Internet of Things question - something at the very top of the Gartner "Hype Cycle Peak of Inflated Expectations" as of this writing--and thus not yet terribly well understood, but a great buzz-word.)
I did not receive any particularly difficult questions, but the team did ask a lot of questions regarding my previous experiences, both academic and professional.
