    Supplemental questions

    What specifically interests you about working as a Planner for the City of ***** and what do you consider to be the most significant planning issues for *****?
    For the first question, the truth might be: 1) It came to me in a dream. (ie intuition at work) 2) I want to work in X region and you happen to have a job opening I think I can qualify for and, at the moment, no one else does.

    Obviously, not the best answers. How have you /would you answer such questions?

    For the second question, I am tempted to say something very general that I think is defensible. I am wondering how others might research for a question like that.

    (I was tempted to title this "The NEVERENDING Supplemental Questions Thread" but thought that might not go over too well with admin. )

    I actually don't see why those are bad answers. They are certainly more interesting and would make you stand out as a candidate more than the rest of the people who come up with some lame statement about working to improve/maintain the quality of life or whatnot.
