Dear Experts, I have an interview coming up with an investment company. After talking with current workers in the industry, I learned the interviewer may ask me questions pertaining to numbers and mathematical problem-solving techniques. If this is the case, then I'm somewhat nervous to be asked a question I simply do not know the answer to almost instantly. Worse than that, maybe not even know the answer to at all. My college-based knowledge is somewhat rusty at the moment. So, if I'm asked a question I don't know the answer to, how do I talk myself out of it? How do I sound like I actually know what I'm talking about, when in fact I may not. Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#483 You're referring to "BSing" your way through an interview question. Not a good plan. Better to admit you don't know. (@beneubanks) Q#483 Sometimes it's not the answer, but the thought process. Take the time to work it through. Best to at least try. (@gradversity) Q#483 Practice as much as possible in advance. With exposure comes composure. If you do get stumped, be honest.

We've all been there. At some point, we are finally "done" with our current employer and make the decision to hunt for a new job. That's just the nature of the beast—we get hired, we get excited, we have a honeymoon phase, we work hard, and, slowly, the glow wears off. Next employer, please.
