Job Interview Questions and How to Answer Them

Preparing for interview questions will make the interview go better. Some of the questions are simple but challenging. Here are some interview questions and answers.

How would you describe yourself in a word?
As humans, we are complex and diverse; therefore, describing yourself with a word might seem misleading. Although it might be tempting to use words like hardworking, diligent, and unique, such words are generic and do not describe you. Instead, choose something that blends with the company’s and your identity. Try to align the word with the company’s identity.

What are your greatest strengths?
This question mainly involves showcasing your characters and values and how they align with the company’s values. Mention strengths that are relevant to your work.

What are your most significant weaknesses?
The key to answering this question is sincerity. Presenting positive characteristics as weakness is a stale approach that doesn’t go far with interviewers anymore. Instead, be honest about your shortcomings while concentrating on those steps you are taking to improve those weaknesses. Say a weakness that is not relevant to the job. For example, if you are not an expert in excel that is fine to say as a weakness if the job doesn’t require you to be.

Tell me about yourself
Instead of embarking on a tiresome journey of giving accounts of your interests and accomplishments, here is an opportunity to present your elevator pitch a brief and professional summary of what and who you are, the things you have to offer, and those you wish to accomplish. Focus on what drives you and proactively highlight why you want the job.

Do you have any questions for me?
Always have at least 2 questions available. However, do not ask questions that you could have searched on a search engine and have gotten the answers. Instead, inquire about how they like their job, how they measure success in their field summarily, questions only they can answer for you. If you don’t ask questions, it can turn some interviewers off.
