Some interview questions to practice

Updated on July 28, 2012

When it comes to job interviews have you ever wondered how they come up with questions to ask you? Have you ever wondered what are the main questions that many companies ask their potential employees most of the time? Well, recently I went to a training on how to get people ready for jobs and how to get them ready for that one job interview or maybe those many job interviews that they may have in the near future.

These next few questions are th most asked by most interviewers:

1. Tell me a little about yourself.
This is the 1st question that is asked most of the time. Just be sure that when you answer
question, that you base it on your work experience and on the interest of that job.

2. Why did you leave your last job?
When it comes to this question, try not to get defensive especially when it comes to being
terminated or maybe because you left due that you were unhappy. Try to keep your
answer simple. This is one good response: I was ready for new challenges.

3. What are your strengths?
Say something that relates to the job that you are applying for. Don't be afraid to tell them
what you know to do.

4. What are your weaknesses?
Everyone has weaknesses. Be brief about them. Try to mention 1 or 2 minor weaknesses
that can be overcome by training and work experience.

5. What can you offer this company?
Be brief and tell them what you can bring to their company, why you are a worthy asset to
their company.

6. Do you consider yourself a team player?
Always answer yes to this question. List ways that you have been a team player in the past.

7. What was the biggest problem in your last job?
State how you have faced your challenges and how you found solution to them.

8. If I were to call your boss, what would he/she say about your ability to do the job?
Be careful with this question. Always tell the positive, not the negative.

9. What kind of salary do you require?
This question is asked most of the time, you can say the salary you wish but it may not be
what you want. The economy has changed in many ways.

10. If you were hired, when could you start?
If you already have a job you want to leave make sure to say 2 weeks (minimum). If you
need job now than tell them within the next week.

These are a few of the interview questions that they ask most of the time. Most of the time it requires a lot of practice before going to an interview. Can you think of any questions that you have been asked before during an interview?
