We are living in a world where many people at one point in time had to face a panel or an individual to be interviewed for whichever positions they applied for. Some people fail to proceed to employment as they do not know how to answer relevant questions asked.
What questions are frequently asked?
- Tell me about yourself
- Why did you leave your previous job?
- What are you currently doing?
- What do you find rewarding in your line of career?
- What are your strengths and weaknesses?
- Tell me about a difficult situation you have faced.
- Where do you see yourself in 3-5 years?
- Why should we hire you?
Different people give different responses to the questions asked but you need to make sure you are specific in your answers. Avoid beating around the bush. Questions that need you to give a description, you can summarise your answers.
The questions are always structured to check on one personal strength, attributes and achievements you have made in your latter career and you need to be keen so that you don’t blow away a window of opportunity.
As you finish your interview it is also good to ask the interviewer a question to get clarifications on what maybe you didn’t understand but make it professional to avoid doubts on your performance.
