Sample Interview Questions With Answers


Hi, sample interview questions of the common type are listed below. Answers are included. But perhaps suggestions for tailoring your responses is a better way to put it, since specific answers are impossible to provide. Practice answering these sample interview questions out loud to yourself or ask a friend or relative to help you.


Don't feel that you have to answer right away. Interviewers know that you're nervous and expect you to think a bit, so do think carefully before you answer. But don't hesitate too long or it'll appear that you're stalling. Interviewers will ask open-ended questions to see where you'll go with them, so try not to ramble while you're thinking of a real answer.

Q.
Tell me about yourself.
A.
This is the dreaded, classic, open-ended interview question and likely to be among the first. It's your chance to introduce your qualifications, good work habits, etc. Keep it mostly work and career related.

Q.
Why do you want to leave your current job? (Why did you leave your last job?)
A.
Be careful with this. Avoid trashing other employers and making statements like, "I need more money." Instead, make generic statements such as, "It's a career move."

Q.
What are your strengths?
A.
Point out your positive attributes related to the job.

Q.
What are your weaknesses?
A.
Everybody has weaknesses, but don't spend too much time on this one and keep it work related. Along with a minor weakness or two, try to point out a couple of weaknesses that the interviewer might see as strengths, such as sometimes being a little too meticulous about the quality of your work. (Avoid saying "I work too hard." It's a predictable, common answer.) For every weakness, offer a strength that compensates for it.

Q.
Which adjectives would you use to describe yourself?
A.
Answer with positive, work-oriented adjectives, such as conscientious, hard-working, honest and courteous, plus a brief description or example of why each fits you well.

Q.
What do you know about our company?
A.
To answer this one, research the company before you interview.

Q.
Why do you want to work for us?
A.
Same as above. Research the company before you interview. Avoid the predictable, such as, "Because it's a great company." Say why you think it's a great company.

Q.
Why should I hire you?
A.
Point out your positive attributes related to the job, and the good job you've done in the past. Include any compliments you've received from management.

Q.
What past accomplishments gave you satisfaction?
A.
Briefly describe one to three work projects that made you proud or earned you pats on the back, promotions, raises, etc. Focus more on achievement than reward.

Q.
What makes you want to work hard?
A.
Naturally, material rewards such as perks, salary and benefits come into play. But again, focus more on achievement and the satisfaction you derive from it.

Q.
What type of work environment do you like best?
A.
Tailor your answer to the job. For example, if in doing your job you're required to lock the lab doors and work alone, then indicate that you enjoy being a team player when needed, but also enjoy working independently. If you're required to attend regular project planning and status meetings, then indicate that you're a strong team player and like being part of a team.

Q.
Why do you want this job?
A.
To help you answer this and related questions, study the job ad in advance. But a job ad alone may not be enough, so it's okay to ask questions about the job while you're answering. Say what attracts you to the job. Avoid the obvious and meaningless, such as, "I need a job."

Q.
How do you handle pressure and stress?
A.
This is sort of a double whammy, because you're likely already stressed from the interview and the interviewer can see if you're handling it well or not. Everybody feels stress, but the degree varies. Saying that you whine to your shrink, kick your dog or slam down a fifth of Jack Daniels are not good answers. Exercising, relaxing with a good book, socializing with friends or turning stress into productive energy are more along the lines of the "correct" answers.

Q.
Explain how you overcame a major obstacle.
A.
The interviewer is likely looking for a particular example of your problem-solving skills and the pride you show for solving it.

Q.
Where do you see yourself five (ten or fifteen) years from now?
A.
Explain your career-advancement goals that are in line with the job for which you are interviewing. Your interviewer is likely more interested in how he, she or the company will benefit from you achieving your goals than what you'll get from it, but it goes hand in hand to a large degree. It's not a good idea to tell your potential new boss that you'll be going after his or her job, but it's okay to mention that you'd like to earn a senior or management position.

Q.
What qualifies you for this job?
A.
Tout your skills, experience, education and other qualifications, especially those that match the job description well. Avoid just regurgitating your resume. Explain why.

Q.
Why did you choose your college major?

A.
The interviewer is likely fishing to see if you are interested in your field of work or just doing a job to get paid. Explain why you like it. Besides your personal interests, include some rock-solid business reasons that show you have vision and business sense.

The Most Powerful Cover Letter

Hi Dear friends, an interesting statistic from a poll taken of recruiting and hiring managers stated that 75% of the people who review resumes said they read cover letters ONLY if they know the cover letter has been customized for the company and the position.

At RightChanges, we have two ALWAYS statements regarding the job search and one is to ALWAYS send a cover letter.  Coach Judi Adams recommends one cover format over any other. The format we recommend is the T cover letter.


What is a T Cover Letter?

The T cover letter gets its name from the imaginary T that is formed by the two columns in the middle of the single page letter. The left column is the list of requirements as outlined by the hiring company and the second column is the qualifications you have that match the requirements. With this format you are visually showing the hiring manager why you are the perfect candidate. How powerful is that?

IMPORTANT OFFER:

The remaining portion of this article gives the steps to creating the T cover letter. Some job seekers however still struggle with creating it: how to select the requirements and qualifications to include or how to use Word to format it. RightChanges is offering a one-hour webinar on Friday September 12th on The Power Cover Letter. Space is limited and registration deadline is Friday September 5th. See details at the end of this article. 
The Format

We know the most important section of the cover letter (the T) and there are other sections of this single page letter as well.

Letterhead

The top of the cover letter should have the same format and information you have on your resume. This is your letterhead and gives a professional look to your materials. This same letterhead should be used on all job search correspondences. Consider it your own custom stationery.

Address

You should address the letter to the name of the hiring manager. You should be able to get this name through networking. If you absolutely do not know the person’s name do not address the letter to Dear Sir. I am a female hiring manager and that won no points with me.

 Opening Paragraph

The opening paragraph should mention the position you are applying for, include the position number if one was listed, and how you heard about the position. If you did it correctly, you networked into the position and can mention the person’s name who told you about the position or to contact that person.

Brag Phrase

Brag phrase is our name for the section that appears before the T . This phrase (a sentence or two) should affirm that your experience and abilities seem to be a great match for the position and transition to the T portion of the letter.

The T

The T consists of two columns with the respective titles of Your Requirements and My Qualifications or something equivalent.

Each requirement should be a separate row. The bulleted items in the right column should line up to the point it corresponds to in the left column.  If you have more qualifications for a particular requirement, it is fine to have white space on the left before the next bullet. An important reminder is to keep the text as concise as possible.

We are often asked what about how to handle requirements where you do not have the matching qualifications. The answer is not to list those. The hiring manager’s list is like a kid’s Santa list during the Christmas holiday. No child believes they are going to receive everything on the list, it is the items they would like to have.  Hiring managers list all of the skills and experience they would like to have. Even some requirements listed as mandatory will be overlooked when they find a great candidate.

Closing

The deal isn’t a deal until it is closed. Following the T portion, a closing phrase is needed that expresses your interest, belief that you are a great fit, and next steps. Consider using a statement regarding how you will follow-up with them in a few days to see if they have any questions.

Tips

  • To compile the phrases for the opening, brag and closing sections, RightChanges recommends looking through the book Cover Letters That Will Knock’em Dead by Martin Yate.  Go through and find wording that sounds like you, not all phrases and wording will.
  • To get your cover letter in front of the hiring manager and read, add the letter to the front of the resume in the same file. Do not have a separate file for the resume. Many hiring managers will believe it is the same old blah blah blah cover letter and not even open it. Plus having the cover letter as the first page of the resume will allow electronic resume scanners to find the keywords of the requirements.

Use the cover letter to walk the hiring manager through why you are the perfect candidate by using the most powerful cover letter format, the one page T cover letter.

WEBINAR DETAILS: Power Cover Letter Webinar

On Friday September 12th at noon US EDT, RightChanges is holding the Power Cover Letter webinar. You will learn how to write this powerful cover letter which visually shows hiring authorities why you are the right candidate. Do not leave it for them to figure it out for themselves. Standout from the competition.


Topics covered:

* Benefits of this format

* The do's and don'ts

* How to get them to "read" the cover letter

* Actual example from scratch: using a resume and job description, you will see a step by step demonstration using Microsoft Word on how to do it yourself


There will be time at the end of the webinar to get your cover letter questions answered


Registration deadline is Friday September 5th but don’t wait – space is limited.


To register go to: http://mkt.com/rightchanges , Select Webinar, and the Power Cover Letter Webinar.
I will appreciate your comments as well.

Canadian Employers using Immigration and Recruitment Firms

Hi friends,

I am searching my job in Canada from the last 5 to 10 years. But i am still unable to secure my job, i am applying everyday for Canada jobs. There are many Canada job websites providing service free of cost. The best sites are http://kijiji.ca, http://jobbank.gc.ca, http://saskjobs.ca and http://careerbuilder.ca.

I searched all of them and you will strange to hear that there is no reply from the employers that i applied. I was thinking all the time about this situation. Why no one able to respond me.

Now i realized that why they are not responding to the jobseekers directly. Actually they are using Recruitment / Employment Agencies and Immigration Firms to offer jobs. There is very little way that they offer a job directly to the jobseeker.

In the other words, they are using Recruitment/Immigration Law firms to evaluate the candidates and recruit them through the Recruitment and Immigration Firms. But now the Immigration Firms and Canadian Employment Agencies are charging fee in dollars. They are asking thousands of dollars from jobseekers from around the world to give them job offer and process their LMO or LMIA, Labour Market Impact Assessment Letter, and work permit as well.

And about the US and UK Employment procedure, actually you can apply directly to jobs rather than you use Immigration and Recruitment Firms, so you can apply directly through internet for jobs.

I will be very appreciate your comments if you have in your mind.

USA Employment Scam Alert

Hi, actually i have a Group in facebook for H1b Visa Jobs. Yesterday a man by name Theodore Smith has requested to add him on my group, i added him and he posted that they can provide USA Visa Jobs. I requested him for more details, he sent me an email for asking $850 dollars in advance to process my application, and just after that, i thought that it might be a scam and fraudulent person. His name is Theodore Smith, full contact details are listed below with the website.

I have contacted to the Superior Cruises Company through their website and i requested about verification of Theodore Smith and his company. They replied me that this is a scam, and please do not send any information. Actually they are a fraudulent company and they are scamming people on the name of our company. And just after the verification, i removed his name from my facebook account.

So, i request to everyone that please be-careful from any scam or fraud. There are so many people doing this business on internet to scam people on the name of job offer and visa offer. Please do not pay money in advance or without the authenticity of the company or person.

The Scammer name and Contact details are listed below. You can give me your comments as well.

Have a good day.
