Typical Interview Questions And Answers

Nobody likes to sit in the interviewee chair but this is the only way that you can get the job of your liking – it is an essential part of the hiring process. You can never be completely prepared for a job interview. There are always a few questions that will take you by surprise and your inadequate answers can cost you the job. Simple looking questions like “Are you willing to put the interests of the organization ahead of your own?” could leave you tongue-tied. However, prior preparation can tell you that an intelligent response to this question would be to say that, “I shall struggle to make them coincide. However, if the company ever veered away from its current principles so far that there was a conflict, then, I believe, I’d have to stick up for my own interests.” Such and many more questions can greet you in an interview. They are generally related to your previous job, work history, future plans and behaviour etc. The tip here is to give a camouflaged glimpse of the truth – it is best not to spill the beans about your personal life. A few sample questions along with model answers are listed in this article for your viewing pleasure.
Common Interview Questions And Answers
Do You Consider Yourself Successful?
Answer: “Yes. Because I have proven successful in all that I have ventured. That doesn't mean I haven't had my fair share of struggles or mistakes, but in the end, I retain the skills and life experiences to overcome distractions and accomplish goals. I know if given the chance, I will prove successful in all the responsibilities entitled to this position.”
Why Do You Want To Work For This Organization?
Answer: “In my job search, I've investigated a number of companies. Yours is one of the few that interests me, for these reasons...”
This may take some thought and certainly, should be based on the
research you have done on the organization. Sincerity is extremely
important here and treachery can be easily sensed. Relate the answer to your long-term career goals.
What Kind Of Salary Do You Need?
Answer: “That’s a tough question. Can you tell me the range for this position?”
This is a loaded question. It could be the beginning to a nasty little game that you will probably lose if you answer first. To buy some time and acquire a clearer picture, throw the ball in the employer’s court and ask the range within which you could begin to negotiate. In most cases, the interviewer, taken off guard, will tell you. If not, say that it can depend on the details of the job. Then give a wide range.
How Long Would You Expect To Work For Us If Hired?
Answer: “I am committed to staying as long as I can. I like the way your company is continuing to expand and I would like to be a part of the development on a long term basis. As long as my employer can appreciate the 110% I am continuously giving into my work, and give me room to grow intellectually and professionally, I wouldn’t have any reason to leave. I find that it’s actually a hassle to change jobs or companies.”


What Is Your Philosophy Towards Work?

Answer: “My philosophy towards work is. ‘To every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction.’"
Give a brief explanation here stating that if you perform well at work then there will be good outcome or result. Similarly, if not you do not put an effort, you will stand a chance of losing your job. Other answers to the above question could be, "Better never to have lived, than exist, and pass away without leaving a trace" or “Don't stop when you are tired. Stop when you are done. (i.e., completed the work assigned)” Or even “Give an honest day work for an honest day pay” or "Strive to be the best and nothing less." 
Above mentioned are a few typical questions, which you could be asked in your interview, along with the appropriate answers. Personalise your answer and never memorise or by-heart them as this will make you even more nervous. Here’s wishing you all the best from the entire team out here!
