Top 10 Common Interview Questions

Top 10 Common Interview Questions

One can face the most stimulating seconds of their lives during a interview. Particularly if it is for an fee or a job. This article will help you get an idea about the most basic queries that you can be asked during an interview and how to challenge them. These may or not form a part of your actual interview but typically employers do measure your competence on the lines of these questions and may put them before you in a dissimilar way or style.

 10. Tell us more about yourself.

9.  Why do you want this job?

8. Why should we hire you?

7. Why did you leave your previous job?

6.  How do you evaluate success?

5. Describe a work situation/problem and how you overcame it.

4. How do you handle stress and pressure?

3.  What is your greatest strength?

2. What is your greatest weakness?

This can be a trick question and needs a lot of observation before it is answered. This question should be answered astutely and that can be done by talking about skills that are unconnected to the job. For example an boss may not care if you have poor exact skills if the job profile is of an editor or a producer. Also, you can talk about skills that you weren’t well-organized with earlier but have better. For example, you may have been shy and introverted earlier but now you’re more self-assured and like to socialize with people around you. By doing so, you turn a negative into positive.

 1.  What are your goals for the future?

OR ‘Where do you see yourself in 5 years?’ is one of the most shared questions that come up in job interviews. The interviewer is not actually interested to know where you are factually but rather wants to judge your sureness, drive, focus and growth-capability all in one question. Answering it with “I am married with two kids” can cost you that job because it is just off the point. On the other hand, saying “I see myself as the company’s CEO” can also do the same harm but in a different way. That will depict you as an over-confident and power-crazy candidate. They will directly strike you off and for clear reasons.
