5 Common Interview Questions and Tips on how to Answer Them
The second question is "How do people describe you?", when answering this make sure you focus on qualities necessary for the job, also be sure not to ramble. This is a good question to have your answer prepared in advanced for.
Another common question is "Why should we hire you?", for this you should find the job description and take note of what you can already do for the job, if there are qualifications you don't meet you should explain how you're going to work to meet them.
A fourth commonly asked question is "What is your greatest weakness?", this question is also good to be prepared for, when answering this explain how you are working to overcome the weakness, don't overdo the answer, don't start telling stories about your weakness.
Finally, a fifth question is "Do you have any questions", answering this IS important. If you don't have any questions to ask it seems like you aren't really interested in working there. Ask things like "What is the work environment like here?".
Dress For The Interview
Both men and women should have well groomed hair and overall look professional.
Men should wear a well fitted suit, a tie, and a collared shirt.
- Don't ramble or go off onto tangents, the interviewer isn't going to want to know your entire life story, just enough of it to get a sense of who you are and if you're a good fit for the job.
- Don't stare-off into space while talking to the interviewer, eye-contact shows confidence which is a key trait interviewers look for
- Don't think of the interview as an interview. It will make you a lot less nervous if you think of an interview as a conversation
