Handling questions you don’t have an answer for.
What you should know: Most of the time the questions you are asked are about you and your skill sets and experience. There may be a time where you may be asked a technical question, pertaining to your field that you simply don’t have an answer for at that moment.
Hopefully, you are familiar with the subject and it simply a matter of going to the correct resource to get the answer. When/if this happens it is best to be honest but to let them know what the issue is and that you will get the answer and get back to them.
Answer: I have the answer to that question but not at my finger tips. For specific items like this I usually refer to my reference sources to ensure accuracy. If you would like, I will get the answer to that and send you an email.
