Tell me a little bit about yourself This is probably the most commonly asked question that occurs at the beginning of an interview. Be ready with a short prepared answer but make sure it doesn’t sound rehearsed. And don’t start blabbering on about your personal life. Limit your answer to your career background and experience unless specifically asked about your personal life. Talk about past jobs as well as work experience that is related to the position you’re interviewing for.
2. Why did you leave your last job? Regardless of why you left your last job make sure to stay positive. Always smile and focus on the positive reason such you were seeking the opportunity to expand your career opportunities, your interest in working with a new firm that provided greater opportunity, you desired to work in a new location, etc.
Don’t reference previous job problems or differences with management that caused you to leave. If you stay positive your answer may help you if you’re negative you will likely decrease your chances of getting the job for which you’re interviewing.
3. What relevant work experience do you have in this career field? Talk about specific work related experience for the position you’re interviewing for. Make sure the experience is relevant.
I have been to some interviews before, formal interviews, scholarship interviews, and casual interviews. But I have never experienced a real job interview. Before, I was really intimidated by the term “job interview”. Some people say that it may be the basis whether one will get his dream job or not; so I can feel that a person’s life depends on it. A single move may make or break one’s dream. ...
Don’t talk about previous experience that is not related to the position in question. If you don’t have specific career related experience speak about prior experience that has helped you develop the specific knowledge and skills required for the position you are applying for.
4. Do you consider yourself successful? You should always answer yes to this question. Briefly explain why without going on and on. If you communicate that you’re more successful than you really are you may come off as arrogant or unrealistic. A goof explanation is that you have set professional goals and that you have met some of these goals and are on track to meet more in the near future.
5. What would people you work with say about you? You don’t want to say that everyone loves to work with you but you do want to have a few positive examples of co-workers who enjoyed working with you with an explanation why.
6. What do you know about our company? You always want to make sure that you’re pretty familiar with the company that you’re interviewing with. Nothing looks worse than a candidate who knows nothing about the company they say they’re interested in working for.
Find out everything you can about the company, its culture and its goals. You will also want to know how the company is positioned in its market as well as who its major competitors are.
7. What have you done to improve your skills over the past year? You’ll want to be prepare with some very specific examples of what you’ve done over the last year and what you’re currently doing to improve your professional knowledge and skill set as well as anything else you’re doing the shows self improvement.
8. Are you currently looking at other job opportunities? Just answer this question honestly. Sometime an employer wants to know if there are other companies you’re considering so that they can determine how serious you are about the industry, they’re company and find out if you’re in demand. Don’t spend a lot of time on this question; just try to stay focused on the job you’re interviewing for.

9. Why do you want to work for this company? Again be honest. The interviewer will be able to sense very quickly if you’re be disingenuous. Your answer should be base on your person reasons, career aspirations as well as research you’ve performed on the company. The most important thing you should do is make sure to relate your answer to your long-term career goals.
10. Do you know anyone that works with our company? Sometimes companies have policies relating to the hiring of individuals related to current company employees.
If you are related to anyone working for the company make sure you’re aware of company policies before you enter the interview. If you have a friend or acquaintance working for the company make sure have good relationship with this individual before mentioning them.
11. What type of salary are you looking for? This can be a very tricky question as the individual asking it is probably digging for something other than a simple answer to the question. We recommend that you don’t immediately respond to the question directly.
Instead, say something like, “That a difficult question. What is range for this position?” More often than not the interviewer will tell you. If the interviewer insists on direct answer you may want say that it depends on the details of the job – then give a wide salary range.
12. How long do you want to work for us if we hire you? Here being specific is probably not the best approach. You may consider responding, “I hope a very long time.” Or “As long as we’re both happy with my performance.”
