General interview questions
 
The job interviews are the twisting point in a job search where job seekers can do well in winning confidence of potential employers; make them believe that you are the model candidate for the position you are looking for. Most likely job seekers stagger through interviews as if the recruiter asks jumpy questions. But generally interview questions are to be expected. Rehearse your interview answers & your role before the show, so you'll be ready to face employers/recruiters with self-belief. To answer interview questions precisely takes ability, exercise, and strength of mind. Some of the most likely interview questions for you to practice before appearing!
  1. Introduce yourself?
  2. What are your career preferences?
  3. How much salary you are expecting?
  4. What is your plan regarding continuing your education?
  5. Tell us about your hobbies?
  6. What are your strengths & weaknesses?
  7. Are you ready to work in a team?
  8. Can you work in stress?
  9. What good things you liked in your ex boss?
  10. How do you feel working on weekend?
  11. Define success?
  12. How good your communication is?
  13. Where do you see yourself in next 2 years?
  14. You like trying new things or stay with old ones?
  15. Why you have applied for this position?
  16. Tell us about your family?
  17. Areas where you can revamp your skills?
  18. What if you are not selected for this position?
  19. What makes you feel that you are the best candidate for this position?
  20. What you preferred, money or work?
  21. Tell us about your subjects?
  22. What is your greatest strength?
  23. What are you looking for in a job?
  24. What kind of person would you refuse to work with?
  25. What is more important to you: the money or the work?
  26. Tell me about your ability to work under pressure.
  27. Do your skills match this job or another job more closely?
  28. What motivates you to do your best on the job?
  29. Describe your management style.
  30. How do you propose to compensate for your lack of experience?
  31. Describe your work ethic.
  32. What qualities do you look for in a boss?
  33. What position do you prefer on a team working on a project?
  34. Do you have any questions for me?
Candidates can raise their chances of success if they get ready for them in advance. Find the balanced answers to the most common interview questions. Hiring people (recruiters) hope that you are the matched candidate for the job. They are desperate to wrap up interviewing and want to fill up the position. Focus on what you have to say in regards to your skills & experience instead of sensing fear. Job seekers can practice and perfect their answers ahead of interview date.

In my experience most interviewers ask us to do a SWOT analysis of ourselves . By answering these questions I think we'll have a fairly good understanding of what we want, and what we are good at.

I think regardless of technique or style, when interviewing someone ultimately there are two goals. 1. Is this person smart. 2. Can they get things done.

With that said, trivia questions are horrible interview questions. I once got asked what's the difference between varchar and varchar2 for a senior developer position. Ugh. I didn't take that job.

I will also say, the questions in this thread are worse. The questions in this thread accomplish squat for determining if a person is smart and can they get things done.

1. You ask salary as a part of your general questions? Wow. I can tell you nothing would irritate me more than hearing that right away. Besides, in a professional organization, the recruiter or HR should have already gotten an idea before the in-person interview. My standard answer to such a question, before we're talking offer letter, is "negotiable" -- you've learned nothing.

2. What are your strengths and weaknesses? Seriously. Is this the 80s? I guess you want candidates to blow sunshine up your backside and say something corny like "I've been accused by my colleagues of working too hard"... again, a savvy candidate (and that can be good or bad) sees right through this and it does nothing for determining if a person is smart and can they get things done.

3. Hobbies? There are better ways to determining if the candidates fit into your organizational culture.

4. Are you ready to work in a team? What's the answer here? Yes? Of course... even the biggest d-bag in the world isn't going to answer this one wrong and you've done nothing in determining if a person is smart and can they get things done with this question. Considering the vast majority of work is done in teams these days, what exactly are you trying to determine? Is there a goal for this question (or any of these questions) or does your org regularly waste candidate's time?

Some good posts are already here and really interesting insight.

Before you face an interviewer, go through your resume very carefully. Learn what you have written in it by heart because most of your questions would come from that. Keep the objective of the job in mind and be prepared to support your candidature with logic. Don't simply say that you are the best guy for the job but be prepare to show why.

It is also important to learn to turn the negatives in your resume to your favor. If you were out of job or have been laid off, have your explanation ready.

Lastly, take control of the interview and don't the interviewers dwell much on unimportant things.
