While every interview you attend will take its own unique direction, you can often predict the type of questions you’ll be asked. For that reason, it’s a great idea to prepare yourself beforehand by thinking about how to answer some common interview questions. Check out the great article from Hudson about the 5 most common interview questions!

A Quebecois dish made with fried potatoes, cheese curds and topped with meat drippings. Or, in other words: French fries, cheese curds and gravy. There will be poutine imitators out there, but shredded cheese just doesn’t substitute for the real deal cheese curds

Made from the xylem sap of a sugar maple, red maple or black maple. It is delicious and should be poured liberally on pancakes. Unfortunately you may find ‘maple flavoured’ syrup in New Zealand and Australia which is not the same!
Kiwis will have no idea what you are talking about.

Named after the city of Nanaimo in B.C. With many different variations it’s no wonder you might miss this sweet treat.
Double double coffee from Tim Hortons
Don’t worry, once you discover the café culture in New Zealand, drip coffee will be a distant memory
By Matt MacGillivray from Toronto, Ontario, Canada - Flickr, CC BY 2.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=2201560
Fear not! You should still be able to find this in New Zealand and Australia.
You might have to learn how to make this yourself. It is not common to have smoke meat in New Zealand and Australia.
Canadian bacon with maple syrup
By Stefano A. from Toronto, Canada - Canadian Bacon, CC BY 2.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=11803831
Fortunately you can still find this cut of bacon in New Zealand and Australia. You might get odd looks if you order bacon and maple syrup in a café though.

Pure butter, sugar and eggs. You can add something healthy like raisins, walnuts or pecans. No judgement if you do or don’t.
Kiwis and Aussies will just ask …why?
