What are the hot questions you will be asked during a job interview?
It all depends on the character of the interviewer or interviewers. Intelligent people ask intelligent questions and you need to be ready to 'fire from your hip' in an intelligent way.
Here are few samples
- Why do you want to work for us?
You need to have a cleaver alibi that fits the bill for the employer. You may be desperate looking for job but all you need to talk about is why the employer needs you.
- Why are you quitting your current job?
Be honest in a diplomatic way. Best bet would be for a salary increase. Beware to mention anything else that irks you in your current job as that may open a pandora's box in the interviewer's perception of why you really want to move on.
- How would this job, we are offering fit into your career plan?
Always go for a positive change driven by a kind of financial reward or better working conditions (nearer home) but that may be too obvious!
- What are your weakest character traits?
This one can pin you down if not prepared for it. You need to talk about something you really want to change and you are working on changing. Make sure you pass on the message that you are doing something about it.
- What are your salary expectations?
Be honest - money is a main motivator in career moves.
