Job Interview Questions

1 Tell me about yourself

2 Tell me about your dream job

Confine your answer to work related stuff. Never go much into the personal details unless the panel asks you.

If your response is a specific designation along with the responsibilities that you expect, you may be put under the scanner to confirm whether you suit that particular role. So, better make use of stereotyped phrases like amicable environment etc.

3 Why did you leave your last job?

4 What is your weakness?

Give out a positive response of the soft “I am in pursuit of greener pastures”. Just confine your words to better opportunities. However factual that may be, never ever speak out things like “It is the ill tempered boss at the workplace that make me think of this change”

Don’t start listing out all your personality disorders straight away. Stay composed and quote silly weaknesses that are strengths in disguise. Things like “I take time in getting ready to the office and so, I set my alarm two hours in advance” sound good.

5 What are your strengths?

6 What do you know about the type of work we do?

The more you market, the more will be the demand. Just list out all your strengths. Be prepared with apt instances that reflect them.

Do necessary homework by browsing every nook and corner of the company’s website as that is the most authentic source of information to answer questions like these. Talk to the people working at the company for specific information, In case you know someone personally.

7 Why should we hire you?

8 Do you consider yourself successful

This must be dealt with a sense of biparty need. Speak in a balanced tone to send them a message that you need the job as much as the company needs you. Never compare yourself with other participants.

Invariably say yes. Success does not mean getting control over the whole world. Discuss all your major achievements till that point in time.

9 Why have you been unemployed for such a long time ?

10 What do co-workers say about you?

Cover up with the productive activity you have done during that time right from attending any course to improving the knowledge by any means such as freelancing or else working for no compensation.

Just come out with the regular compliments you used to receive from your colleagues and take care that you do not sound too exaggerating.
