2. What are your strengths?

This is a cliched interview question. True. But it is also a frequently asked question. Your potential recruiter wants to know what you think of yourself.

Although this might look simple, you need to strategically think through this. Any general answer will be a wrong answer to this one. Sure, it will not hurt you during the interview, but it will not help you either.

Answer this question based on the type of job you are applying for. What solid qualities could be seen as strengths in the position you are applying for? Don’t just tell them you are a good programmer. Try talking about your attention to detail and resourcefulness.

Think through and find the qualities within you that will shine through as strengths for that position you are interviewing for. And voila! They will sit up straight and pay attention.

3. What are your weaknesses?

No need to be the torchbearer of Truth here. For this answer, you must use your diplomatic skills. You should display a weakness that can be seen as a strength. And if you look deep enough, you will find a true strength which is also a weakness.

Select an answer that will work for the position you are applying for. Some answers will be good answers for certain jobs, while the same will be bad for a different job.

Notwithstanding a routine is a weakness that can be a good quality if you are a designer or a marketing strategist; but if you are a Data entry operator, it is a true deadly weakness. It might even destroy your chances of getting selected.

4. Where do you see yourself in five years?

This question primarily depends on where you are in your career. A person with 5 years of experience will have a different goal than a person with no work experience. This question is asked to see how serious a candidate is about his or her career.

Some people might not know their goals, and some people might have goals of becoming rich and retiring early. Those are the kind of answers that will help the interviewers cross you out of the list.

A clear answer is the minimum requirement for this one. It must reflect excitement instead of contempt about your career. After all, they are asking you to share your dream for the next 5 years, isn’t it?

Being descriptive and shooting for a big goal is something interviewers want to hear. However, the answer must not be overly ambitious, parking in the range of seeming threatening to the company.

It is a balancing act. So think through.

5. What do you know about our company?

A typical job interview question, asked to find out how much company research you have conducted, is “What do you know about this company?” or You might be asked why you chose that company. The question can come in various variants.

Remember, the interviewer is also an employee of the company. Any misinformation will look pathetic. Prepare in advance so you can provide a convincing statement.

Research for relevant information and form your perspective to impress the interviewer. Any mistake and you will fall flat.

6. Are you good at dealing with change?

This sounds innocent, but it is a trick question. Don’t answer this question so carefreely that the employee may start wondering if you can stay grounded at their company.

 This is another type of question where everyone will have a similar answer. A simple yes will not be sufficient to impress the interviewer. Dealing with change is common in any workplace.

You got to communicate that you are really good at dealing with change. Do this by quipping an instance when this quality of yours shined through.

7. Do you work well under pressure?

Prove, don’t just speak is the motto here. In most cases, the best answer to this question is answering in affirmative. But a simple yes won’t do.

If you are the kind of person who thrives in high pressure and likes the excitement of it, say so. If you are the kind who won’t be affected by pressure or the lack of it, say so.

Remember, always be prepared to justify your answer with an example.

8. How do you make important decisions?

There are many ways to answer this question, and if you have a reasonable method of making decisions, it will probably be sufficient.

You can say that you’d consult with a mentor: the manager or the official in charge. You can follow up by saying that you work well with a blueprint. Even the best need mentoring, and you can always improve by seeking advice from experts.
