Top Interview Tips #job success

  • 1. Tell me about yourself.

    This is probably the most asked question in a interview. It breaks the ice and gets you to talk about something you should be fairly comfortable with. Have something prepared that doesn't sound rehearsed. It's not about you telling your life story and quite frankly, the interviewer just isn't interested. Unless asked to do so, stick to your education, career, and current situation. Work through it chronologically from the furthest back to the present.

  • "What is your greatest strength?" is one of the easier interview questions you'll be asked. When you are asked questions about your strengths, it's important to discuss attributes that will qualify you for the job.
    E.g 'When I'm working on a project, I don't want just to meet deadlines. Rather, I prefer to complete the project well ahead of schedule.
    I have exceeded my sales goals every quarter and I've earned a bonus each year since I started my current job. My time management skills are excellent and I'm organized, efficient, and take pride in excelling at my work.'

  • Your skills:
    Typical questions an interviewer might ask:
    What are your strengths and weaknesses?
    What can you do for us that other candidates can't?
    What would your colleagues and friends consider as your best qualities?
    Why should we hire you?
    What the interviewer really wants to know: can you do the job?
    Know your strengths & e.g's :
    Communication
    Team working - ability to be an effective leader/team member
    IT skills
    Good attitude - hard worker, honest, polite, co-operative
    Problem-solving ,initiative, determined , flexibility , enthusiasm
    If asked about weaknesses , state 1 minor one

  • Good answers:
    Strengths: 'I'm a good organiser, and I plan everything in detail. I showed this when I was given a new project, and I had to get it up and running from scratch.'
    Weaknesses: 'Sometimes I'm too enthusiastic when working on a new project. But I've learned to adjust to everyone else's pace, and not go charging ahead.'
