Different Types of Questions


Different types of questions and suggests on how to deal with them:


Tell me about yourself? Too many candidates give their autobiography.


Why did you leave your last job? Express a desire for greater challenges, or growth opportunities.


What is your greatest weakness? Many people bare their souls or “come clean". Turn your weakness or fault into a positive, appealing trait.


What are your strengths? Temper your ego. Give a succinct response without going overboard.


Tell me about your proudest accomplishment at your current (or last) employer. Perhaps outline a successful project that you worked on, or a problem you helped solve.


Describe how you work under tight pressure deadlines and give an example. Give the interviewer a sense of your work style, and provide a concrete example. 


What two or three things are most important to you in your job? You can use this as an opportunity to demonstrate your understanding of the role or culture. Ideally, your answer will illustrate why you are a good fit for the role.


This is a very high-pressure job. Do you think you're up for it? Be enthusiastic, but be honest. 


Why do you want to leave your present job? Be honest, but be careful not to malign your current employer. Explain that you are looking for more opportunity, or growth potential.
