Common Interview Questions

What Do You Know About The Organization?

Not answering this question well may jeopardize your chances of getting success in the interview. What should you be knowing about the organization? How should you prepare?

Tell me about yourself-1

Most of the time, "Tell me/us about yourself" is the first question. I suggest looking at this question as an opportunity. If you have done your homework well, you can use this to set the tone and direction of the interview. You need to practice, HOW YOU SAY few words. By emphasizing these words you are suggesting the interviewer ask you about these. Obviously, you should prepare yourself beforehand to answer these in detail. When you set the direction of the interview, you are in control. This leads you towards success.

What are your strengths?

This question is an opportunity to score positive points towards a successful outcome of the interview. The candidate should look at the interview process as a game of collecting points. All the right answers and positive moves will be generating more points. By mastering this step, the candidates can collect more positive points and reinforce his/her position in the interview.

What are your weaknesses?

There are a few questions that do not give many positive points but if not handled properly they take away points. These are dangerous and candidates need caution. One may not attempt to be over-ambitious to score here. It is suggested to be neutral and get over this part as soon as possible.

Tell us about your internship

The candidates who have done their internships should expect many questions about the internship and should prepare themselves on this question very well. It may become the major part of their interview. If a candidate has done well in the internship, they should try to continuously throw baits and spend more time around their summer internship. Keep key Baits handy. While replying, throw Bait for the next Question for which you should be prepared.

Sell something to me

In sales interviews, the interviewer usually asks this question. The candidate should not be too pushing, should not be mentioning discounts or deals initially, and should not lose the balance of mind. The interviewer may not buy but would definitely evaluate the Approach took, Persistence, Creativity in the offer, Confidence, Positive Attitude with a smile. It is a good chance to reinforce your candidature.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

It is a very standard question that may not fetch more positive points but may lead to negative points. The approach should be not to reply over ambitious answers but take a safe route of standard plain answers and move on to questions/directions where you have more strength and score positive points.

How Do You Manage Priority?

As the work pace is high and candidates need to do a lot of multitasking, Many interviewers ask this question. The right approach to answer will help in earning positive points during the interview.

Who Is Your Role Model?

The answer for this question should be prepared with the right backups.

What will you do in first 90 days?
Presence of mind questiions
Personal questions, guess estimates and other questions

If a candidate has some positive hobbies/strengths or achievements, these must be brought to the notice for scoring positive points. However, the candidate has to be very cautious and evaluate that these should not be coming in way of the job role or the organization. When can a candidate talk about something personal?
