We want you to be successful in your career choice – here are top 5 most important interview questions you could face. Be prepared, be yourself and make sure you’re ready to answer some tough questions.
1. Tell me about yourself…
Be prepared to talk for two minutes about yourself. Be logical. Start anywhere, such as high school, college or your first employment position. The interviewer is trying to evaluate your communication skills and linear thinking. You may try to score a point or two by describing a major personal attribute.
2. Why are you leaving your current position?
This is a very critical question. Don’t bad mouth your previous employer or co- workers or sound too opportunistic. It’s fine to mention major problems, a buy- out or a shutdown. You may want to state that after long personal consideration, your chance to make a contribution is very low due to extensive company-wide changes.
3. What do you consider your most significant accomplishment?
A good answer to this question can get you the job. Prepare extensively— discuss hard work, long hours, pressure and important company issues at stake. You may want to tell a two-minute detailed story, discussing personal involvement
4. What do you like/dislike most about your current or last position?
The interviewer is trying to determine compatibility with the open position. Be careful; don’t say you dislike overtime, like management, or get too detailed. It’s safe to say that you like challenges, pressure situations, opportunities to grow, or that you dislike bureaucracy and frustrating situations.
5. The sign of a good employee is the ability to take initiative. Can you describe a situation where you did this?
The proactive, results-oriented person doesn’t have to be told what to do. To convince the interviewer you possess this trait, give a series of short examples describing your self-motivation. Discuss one example in-depth, describing the extra effort, your strong work ethic and your creative, resourceful side.
