Common Questions in Interviews
QUESTIONS TYPE WITH BASIC ON TO (WHAT TO) ANSWERS
Background Questions :
1. Tell me about yourself.
The answer to this question is usually with reference to the qualifications required for the position. Keep responses concise and brief and avoid being negative about previous jobs and bosses. Customize the response according to the duties and responsibilities of the position you are interviewing for.
2. What are your greatest strengths?
Keep this as job related as possible by relating to a job task/skill that you know to be an asset of yours. “I like travelling and making new friends” is not a good answer.
3. What are your greatest weaknesses?
The employer is looking for honesty here, but it helps not to be too blunt. Tone down your self-critique and say it with a smile.
1. What can you contribute to this company?
2. Where do you hope to be in five years?
This type of question should be answered enthusiastically. Show the interviewer you are interested in the position and relate the answers to the duties and responsibilities of the job.
1. What do you do in your spare time?
2. Present yourself as a well-rounded person. Your answer gives you dimension, describe your hobbies briefly.

1. Why are you looking for another job?
2. What do you like most/least about your previous job/jobs?

Ask the Right Questions In Your Interview
Interviews are no longer a one-way question-answer process. Employers expect you to ask questions, indulge in a two-way conversation in order to get to know you better and assess you for the job in mind.
Don’t hesitate to ask questions. Not only will it show that you’re keen on the job being offered, but it will also help you determine if this is the right job for you. The research you did earlier on the company should form a basis for some of your questions.
Ask job related questions. Focus on the job, the company, products, services and people. Ask about your potential peers, subordinates and superiors. Take notes prior to the interview, write down your list of questions and take them with you. And while questioning, make sure that the employer doesn’t feel he’s being cross examined
Few sample questions you could ask:
If you like what you see make a positive statement about the position. If you are sincerely interested in the position and are satisfied with the answers given, you should ask the interviewer if he/she feels that you are qualified for the position
How important is is to dress right for a job interview?
Well, the final selection of a job candidate will rarely be determined by the outfit he/she wears. However, first round candidates for an opening are often quickly eliminated because they dress inappropriately. This is not to say you should go out and invest in a new wardrobe, just be sure that you are able to put together an adequately smart interview outfit. Be sure that your clothes are immaculately clean and well-fitting, that your hair-style is neat and businesslike, and that your shoes are clean and attractive. Avoid excessive jewelry, makeup, or perfume.
Remember your final selection depends on:
•Your culture (adaptability)
