Common Tough Interview Questions

November 3rd, 2007

There are some questions that tend to pop up during almost every job interview. The bad news is that these questions are difficult to answer since there is no standard way of answering and every interviewer expects an answer in his own style. The good news is that because these questions are so common, you can prepare for them well in advance and give a perfect answer without breaking a sweat.

  1. Tell me something about yourself?
  2. Why do you wish to leave your current job?
  3. What are your career goals 3 – 5 years from now?
  4. How do you plan to achieve those goals?
  5. What is your biggest weakness?
  6. Did you ever have an argument with your boss and how did you resolve it?
  7. If I were to meet one of your school friend or teacher, what would the say about you?
  8. What do you know about our organization?
  9. What has been your most challenging project/assignment/job?
  10. Do you have any questions for me?

1. Tell me something about yourself?
Sometimes the most general question can be the hardest. How do you sum up your entire life story in just a couple of minutes?

Depending on the years of experience that you have, you need to have a short statement prepared in your mind.

For Freshers:
If you are a fresher, you need to should consider talking about your achievements at school / college and professional courses undertaken. As a fresher you could talk about various college assignments and how you executed them and your role in those assignments or projects.

For people with experience:
When you have experience, the situation becomes a little more tricky. Employers here are not interested in your achievements at school or college. There will be more interested in projects/assignments at work and your execution style with previous company.

Always have this prepared and make sure that it does not sound rehearsed. Limit this to work related items unless instructed otherwise.

Reason why this question is asked?
Employers want a quick introduction from which they tend to understand what is it that you have to offer to the organization. A lot of them judge your communication skills through this question.
