No matter how hard you practice interviewing or how long you prepare, chances are you’ll face questions in any interview that you didn’t expect. Although this might not bring you much comfort, the good thing is there are several things you can do before and during an interview that will allow you to better handle these situations. To that end, below are several tips that will help you deal with difficult interview questions.

1. Bring an extra copy of your résumé—for yourself

To your interview, take extra copies of your résumé: one for each of your interviewers, as well as one for yourself. By having your résumé in front of you, you’ll have an instant reminder of your most impressive accomplishments, as well as a general reference when it comes to dates or other specifics you may draw a blank on when feeling under pressure from a tough question. Many interviewers will also refer to your résumé as they proceed through the interview. When you have it right in front of you, you can follow along and not miss a step.
