Job interview is the most crucial part of applying for a job. Unlike writing resume that you can do at your own convenience, undergoing a job interview doesn’t give the chance to change and alter what you’ve said and done. There are no take 2’s. Hence, it is important to prepare well, if you really want to get hired. Here are the most common questions asked during interviews, which you can start to answer in preparation for a job interview.

1. Tell me about yourself. This question does not require you to tell the whole story of your life. Do you think the interviewer is interested where you were born or what’s your favorite color? He’s interested on your capabilities. Simply start by telling a bit of your background- where you came from and where you live at present. Assure them that they won’t have a problem of you being late. Mention your skills and your accomplishments, especially those that match the qualifications. Tell them your career objective and your dreams. And finally, end the answer by telling your plans on how to achieve your dream career and how you can be an asset for the company.

2. Do you have related job experience? Once you’ve heard this question, tell about the latest related job you had and the similarities of your previous function to the job you’re applying for. Be specific. Define the skills that you earned at your previous job that makes you appropriate for the job. If you’re a new graduate, don’t worry. Site your On-the-Job Training when you’re still studying. Tell also the interviewer the organizations, activities, and projects you’ve joined that had enhanced your abilities needed for the job. Always show connection between your skills and the required qualifications. Claim the job and you’ll succeed in having it.

3. Why did you leave your previous job? A lady answered to this question, “I left my former company because they have no concern for their employees”. When I heard her uttered this way, I knew she had lost the job. Do you think an employer will accept a discreditable employee? Of course, they definitely wouldn’t. If you have complaint, go to the Department of Labor and Employment. You may have a point in your complaint. However, your new company is not the place to complain. You should show a good character to your prospect employer. Answer the question while ensuring them you won’t just leave if ever you get the job. Next>>
