Practise to be prepared for any questions asked

Interview questions you are likley to be asked

When you attend the office of a prospective  employer for a job interview you are likely to be asked a number of questions about yourself. These tend to be pretty standard questions centred around your skill sets, work experience, education and why you feel you are the best person for the job.

Its always best practise to have your answers ready for these type of interview questions for two reasons. Firstly by preparing you can ensure that you give the best possible relevant response to a awkward or challenging query. Secondly by preparing it can boost your confidence, and make you appear more assertive to the interviewer.

Below is a list of the most typical types of questions you are likely to be asked:

Why makes you think you are suitable for this position?

Why do you want to leave your present job?

How is your relationship with your present manager?

What do you know about our company, have you researched about us?

What do you think you could bring to this job?

Can you tell what you think are your greatest strengths and biggest weaknesses?

What are your hobbies and interests apart outside of the work environment?

Where do you see yourself in say 2 years time?
