  1. 1.
  2. 2. If you’ve ever interviewed for a job before, you’ve likely had to answer this keystone question. It’s deceptively simple and a real stumbling block for many. What do you include? What do you leave out? How personal should you get? Instead of giving a chronological history of your education and work experiences, focus on personal qualities such as strengths and skills that make you well-suited for the job. Include tangible examples whenever possible, but don’t branch off too far into a lengthy story. Include interesting tidbits that the employer will want to ask you more about. This will help frame the rest of the interview and highlight why you’re qualified for the role.
  3. 3. **Please modify as per your need, this is for your reference, ANSWER: (REF) “I’ve never been very comfortable with public speaking – which as you know, can be a hindrance in the workplace. Realizing this was a problem, I asked my previous employer if I could enroll in a speech workshop. He said “yes.” I took the class, and was able to overcome my lifelong fear. Since then, I’ve given lots of presentations to audiences of over a 100 high level executives – I still don’t love it, but no one else can tell!”
  4. 4. This is one of the easier interview questions you'll be asked. When you are asked questions about your strengths, it's important to discuss attributes that will qualify you for the job. The best way to respond is to describe the skills and experience that directly correlate with the job you are applying for. Contd… (on next page)
  5. 5. • When I'm working on a project, I don't want just to meet deadlines. Rather, I prefer to complete the project well ahead of schedule. • I have exceeded my sales goals every quarter and I've earned a bonus each year since I started with my current employer. • My time management skills are excellent and I'm organized, efficient, and take pride in excelling at my work. • I pride myself on my customer service skills and my ability to resolve what could be difficult situations.
  6. 6. When you're asked what don't like about your previous job, don't be too negative. The reason is that you don't want the interviewer to think that you'll speak negatively about the new job or the company when you're ready to move on, if you get this job. Rather, it makes sense to talk about yourself and what you're looking for in a new role. SAMPLE ANSWER(REF) I enjoyed the people I worked with. It was a friendly and fun atmosphere and I actually enjoyed going into work each morning. I felt the leadership team was great as well. They knew all of their employees on a first name basis and tried to make those personal connections. I also enjoyed that fact that the office tired to do community outreach with local organizations.
  7. 7. Your answer should reflect that your choice of school had to do with professional goals, not such things as location, social life and cost. Again with the example of the person applying for the financial analyst position. “I choose my school for several reasons. I wanted a school where I would have professors who had real world experience as well as academic knowledge. Also, this school was located in the financial district affording me the opportunity to have internships in financial institutions, gaining real word experience. That is what I bring to your organization. Excellent professional education with actual job experience.”
  8. 8. Your career goals should reflect reasonable expectations. You should aspire to a senior level position in your profession. Aspiring to be CEO could turn some employers off, in that most people will not be CEO. They may fear that if you did not progress to that level you may get frustrated and leave, thus they would loose any investment in you. By the same token, they want somebody who is interested in career progression. They don’t want somebody who is content to stay in the same position for an extended period of time, thus blocking another person’s progression. A response may be: “ I would hope to progress within the financial management profession moving to higher level positions based upon my performance and the opportunities that open up in the organization.
  9. 9. In the back of people’s mind might be, “because you were the only organization that was interested in interviewing me.” But obviously that is not what you are going to say. Also, you don’t want to give a patronizing response like “because you are a great company.” You want to demonstrate your match to the job and the company. For the financial analyst, “the job and career path with your organization is an excellent match to my skills and career goals. The job description is for a person who…. The career path in financial management leads to… That is what I am looking for.
  10. 10. **Please modify the answer in your way/as required: SAMPLE ANSWER: (REF) “I’m more interested in the role itself than the pay. That said, I’d expect to be paid the appropriate range for this role, based on my five years of experience. I also think a fair salary would bear in mind the high cost of living here in Mumbai City.”
