Here are some answers for interview questions about reliving your life, such as what would you do if you could relive your life? Would you do anything differently?

Oftentimes, when an interviewer asks you a question about whether or not you would want to relive your life, he or she is looking for a flaw in your interview. Always remember, the goal for the first few interviews is to get the next interview.

For the interviewer, it is to weed out as many applicants as possible.

Here are some possible personal and non-personal answers to the question of whether or not you would want to relive your life:

Personal Answer

I lost my mother to Alzheimer's. I wish I'd known more about the disease to help me through that difficult time.

Non-Personal Answers

Really, nothing. I've learned from each experience I've had.

I am actually very satisfied with the career I’ve chosen, and how it has progressed. I have learned important things at every stage, and from the people I have worked with.

I have had people ask me in the past if I would have been happier if I had started out in my current career instead of beginning in the business world. I am very glad that I have my experience in business, as I think it gives me unique insight and perspective that I otherwise wouldn’t have. Even though I love what I do now, I wouldn’t change how I got here.
