How to answer the most important job interview questions?

How to answer the most important job interview questions The basic first step before initializing a new task or work is “To gain deep knowledge” about the work, so with interviews.

  •  Do you get anxious about the very idea of a job interview?
  •  Do you worry your nerves will get in the way of impressing your interviewer?

In a recent survey, 73% of job seekers said that looking for a new job is one of the most stressful things in life. Unfortunately, that pre-interview anxiety can really sabotage your performance on the big day. A bad case of nerves can lead to serious interview mistakes–including blanking out, blurting, babbling, sweating, and fidgeting.

Since the questions during first (generally the HR round) are pretty common and the least managers expect from you to at least know how to frame them, usually, they check your presence of mind, confidence, how well are you able to answer and justify what you intend to say, how convincing you are and most importantly do you possess the right set of skills required for the job? Which otherwise isn’t mentioned in your RESUME!?

  •  Before we jump to what is the right way there are two most important things to note:-
  • Interviewers are humans, not aliens; you do not have to fear. Be who you are. Respond naturally, it is a discussion between two people, not an interrogation. Confidence will follow.
  • We cannot read the interviewers mind but can try to look at and study the most common questions being asked so far to prepare them well in advance.

 Following are the 20 most asked questions:-

  • ·         Tell me something about yourself?
  • ·         Tell me what products and services our company deals with and why they are important?
  • ·         What do you know about the company?
  • ·         Why do you want this job?
  • ·         Why should we hire you?
  • ·         What are your weaknesses?
  • ·         What are your strengths?
  • ·         What are your achievements so far?
  • ·         Where do you see yourself in the coming 5 years?
  • ·         What does your dream workplace look like?
  • ·         Is there any other company you’ve applied to?
  • ·         How do you deal with pressure and stressful situations?
  • ·         How are you going to spend the first 30 days if you’re hired?
  • ·         What are your salary requirements?
  • ·         What are your other interests/passions/hobbies?
  • ·         Are you planning to get married?
  • ·         How did you learn about the opening and what made you apply?
  • ·         How do other people describe you?
  • ·         What are your long-term goals?
  • ·         Do you have any questions?
  •   Let’s start the preparation by keeping in mind the following  key notes:-
  • Reviewing the job description.
  • Thoroughly researching the company.
  • Thinking about what you will wear.
  • Planning your journey to the interview.
  • Preparing for questions you will be asked.
  • Preparing your own questions for the employer.
  • Following up with the employer.

Now you are ready to face the most important day of your life!! The possibilities vary, some might pass through, and some might fail!! All you need to know is, “I am confident, because I am true to myself, and true to the person interviewing me.” Do not worry about what might happen, not even once. Not even a tiny bit!! Because what you have are today, and the present, and your answers and the right preparation for the job that suits you the best! Not tomorrow and not their decision.

Good Luck!! Keep learning and keep growing, that is going to help you sustain!!
