Job applicants often get nervous when it comes to going for an interview on their dream Job. But with proper preparation, I believe Job applicants should be able to get through any interview confidently.I have written these 5 likely questions to arm you for whatever is ahead, Lets get straight to the point.
Interview question 1:
“Tell me about yourself.”
This is an opportunity to sell yourself and highlight your career success stories in 2-3 minutes.
Be brief & as concise as possible.
Interview question 2:
“Tell me about a time you failed.”
Demonstrate how you learnt from your mistake or failure and how that helped you grow professionally. Don’t bad mouth yourself or organise a pity party.
Interview question 3:
“What are you short & long term goals?”
Demonstrate that you are a goal-driven professional.
Then, relate your response to the company interviewing you.
Interview question 4:
“Why should we select you for this role?”
Highlight that you are a good fit, highly motivated and productive; and that you will deliver excellent results. Don’t beg.
Interview question 5:
“How do you handle or cope with stress?”
Explain how you have handled stress in the past. Also, highlight that good pressure can be a motivator for you and that it helps improve your productivity.
When asked why you want to work for the company:
-Use the opportunity to emphasize how your strengths and skills match the role you are applying for
-State your plans to advance your career and how the opportunity would help you achieve that.
