HR Interview Advice - Interview the Interviewer
Okay, so you have managed to hold your nerves in control and brave the
questions of the HR. You are now at the end of your interview session. What
next? The answer is, there are a few more steps to go.
Interview Questions and Answers
Here are some very popular interview questions and some possible ways to answer them. Please remember that there cannot be just one answer to them. Your answers depend a lot on your particular circumstances. For instance, if the interviewer asks you to describe a challenging issue you had to face, your answer would depend on your particular background and experience. Therefore we have attempted to give you strategies to answer such questions, rather than specific answers.
Questions and Their Answers.
The first step for successful interviews is to remember how you feel. Yes, it is your nth interview and yet you are as nervous as if it were your first time. Remember, there is nothing wrong with this. Everyone, well almost everyone, feels nervous on interviews. Simply allow this state to be- do not fight it. You will have far more presence of mind if you don’t fight your nervousness. Also try to remember that it is difficult for the interviewer
would you rate as your greatest weaknesses?
This is a tricky question. Be mindful of what you say. If you admit to a
genuine weakness, you will be respected for your honesty, but your resume
will end up in the dustbin after the interview!
think you are overqualified for this job?
Here the interviewer may be worried that you will leave the job once you
find something that matches your qualification level. This
may sound like an objection, but it doesn?t mean that the employer has no
interest in you. The employer is trying to gauge how you see the situation-
whether you can see advantages to both sides. You obviously have to also
show how you stand benefited- otherwise it will appear that this job is only
a stop-gap arrangement for you till you find something better.
came on board with us, what changes would you make in the system?
This seemingly innocent question has many landmines hidden in it. You might
be very close to being hired, but a wrong approach this one question can
sabotage everything. You may be very bright, but no one can really
understand what needs to be done unless they settle in the position and
understand the strengths and weaknesses from within. So beware of jumping at
this question if you don?t want to come across as someone who shoots from
I find that you
have changed jobs many times so far. Why is it so?
The concerns behind this question are quite obvious. The interviewer is
worried that you may leave the job too soon, the way you have done with
others. This might also indicate that you are a well qualified but
problematic person who can?t get along with other people.
How many hours a
day/a week do you work?
Avoid being too specific on this answer. If you give a low figure, the
company will view it as inadequate. If you commit to too many hours, you
will feel guilty for not being able to keep up.
like to hear about your goals.
It reflects poorly on you not to have any goals or have only generalities.
Remember that those people who are in a position to hire you have reached
there most probably because of their goal setting habits. They would want to
hire people who are like them. Thus being non specific about your career/
personal goals could act as a big turn off.
When you look
back on the position you held last, do you think you have done your best in
If you say that you did, it could mean that your best is already behind you.
If you say ?no?, the interviewer takes it to mean that you don?t give
your all to the work at hand. You should therefore indicate that you always
put in your best efforts. Also show that this time of your career (it
includes both your previous work and the current moment) is your peak phase
for several reasons. Support your statement with instances and reasons from
recent developments in your career.
