Traditional interview questions

  1. 1. Traditional Interview QuestionsJob interviews are always stressful - even for job seekers who have gone on countless interviews.The best way to reduce the stress is to be prepared. Take the time to review the "standard"interview questions you will most likely be asked. Also review sample answers to these typicalinterview questions.Then take the time to research the company. That way youll be ready with knowledgeableanswers for the job interview questions that specifically relate to the company you areinterviewing with.Compile Responses to Interview QuestionsTake the time to compile a list of responses to both types of interview questions and to itemizeyour skills, values, and interests as well as your strengths and weaknesses. Emphasize what youcan do to benefit the company rather than just what you are interested in.Tough Interview QuestionsTell me about a time when you had to deal with a co-worker who wasnt doing his/her fair shareof the work.

What was the outcome and howwould you have changed the outcome?How do you get along with older (younger) co-workers?Tell me about a time that you participated in a team, what was your role?Tell me about a time that you worked conveying technical information to a nontechnicalaudienceIf you could choose anyone (alive or deceased) to have lunch with, who would it be?What did you do during this six month gap in employment?Do you consider yourself successful?Convince me to hire you.These are some of the tough interview questions that you may be asked on a job interview.Review the questions and consider an appropriate response, based on your background andskills. There arent necessarily any right or wrong answers, but carefully consider the job you areapplying for, your abilities, and the company culture before you respond.Reference: http://jobsearch.about.com/od/interviewquestionsanswers/a/toughquest.htm
