SOME 29 INTERVIEW QUESTIONS YOU MAY BE ASKED!!!

Businesswomen are meeting and human resources interviewing in the company office

Tell me a little about yourself.

If you are trying to land your first full or part time job then you should start out by saying that you want a job which currently fits your qualifications and interests and then proceed to say what interests you about the job and give examples from your life so far which should qualify you for the position.

If you have a job history which is diverse without a unifying theme then state that the job is your current interest and why you would be qualified for it based on your current skill set derived from prior job experiences and acquired education which may be selfeducation.

If you have a job history in basically the same field of interest then you can state that the job will advance you in your field of interest as the next step towards your goals in the field of interest. You can also mention what your qualifications for the job position are.

Unless the employer specifically asks for personal details it is best to stay focused on landing the job and giving enough convincing evidence or arguments why you want the job and are qualified for it with real life examples, experiences, and activities.

How did you find out about this job?

Standard answers are the internet, employee of the company, friend or acquaintance, and personal interest.

What do you know about this company?

You can start off by saying it has a good reputation and probably a good place to work. Then after researching the company find out who owns it, who a happy employee might be, that you are interested in the information, products, and services sold or offered by the organization, and whether it is a growing company or a well established firm with a good public reputation.

Why do you want this job?

If you are an entry level assembly line worker then you can admit that you need the money but you should probably say that the job interests you and that you are qualified for it by giving real life examples from your past.

If it is not an entry level position then you can state that you are impressed by the good public reputation that the company has and that you think it will help your career development progress. Basically you are very interested in the company and you feel that you can contribute to it’s success with your qualifications and smart hard work.

What are you passionate about?

You should be passionate about your career choice which should include the job that you are applying for but you can also include some hobbies or non work pastimes which you are passionate about.

Why should we hire you?

You are very interested in the job and qualified for it. Give real life examples of your qualifications based on prior job experience, skills, education which may be self education, and people or social skills.

What are your strengths?

Smart hard worker, punctual, dependable, competent, friendly, empathetic, caring, attention to detail, etc.

What are your weaknesses?

Try not to specify your social weaknesses unless it is a statement that you wish you were a little more extroverted than introverted. I suppose you could also say that at times I am a little too serious and don’t find some things that funny. Give some relatively unimportant examples of this seriousness.

For a position as a sous chef you can simply say that you are not that good at filleting fish or that there is some skill that you want to be better at.

What is your greatest job achievement?

Choose a problem which needed a solution that you solved. Give an example of advice you gave your boss which was taken with satisfactory results. If a member of a team give an example of how your work contributed to a successful team effort. And if you managed a team or a department give an example of a successful team effort or a successful department partial or full reorganization effort.

What problem did you solve which needed solving?

What do you see yourself doing five years from now?

Hopefully it is doing something in the company which you will be working for but it could also be taking some time off to get some useful education to further your career.

What are your goals for the future?

What is your dream job?

Why are you leaving your current job?

Not challenging enough, no room for much advancement, and better salary are all valid answers. Try staying away from severely criticizing a former boss although a toxic work environment could be a valid reason if many employees were leaving because of a poorly managed work environment or some toxic individuals which were not fired and became a huge liability for the company.

Is there anything which makes you unique?

This question is rarely asked but if it is then you can say that you are a little different from other humans but will probably never be as unique as Michael Jackson or Einstein.

Have you gotten angry at work? What happened?

If you mostly work alone then you can pick an example of a time when you got angry at yourself for a mistake or not meeting a deadline.

What have you learned from your mistakes?

Don’t make too many of them or don’t make any serious mistakes or you can get into a lot of trouble with your boss.

What did you like most about your past position?

What did you like least about your past position?

Reasons for leaving the current job are probably also the things which you liked least about your past position.

Why were you fired?

Why did you quit your job?

Reasons for leaving the current job are probably also the things which you liked least about your past position and why you quit.

What’s your management style?

What’s a time when you disagreed with a decision made at work?

How would your boss and coworkers describe you?

Why was there a gap in your employment?

What do you like to do outside of work?

Do you plan to have children?

Do you prefer to work alone or on a team?

Give some examples of teamwork.

Finally, prepping for an interview is always good but remember to be yourself and answer as truthfully as possible and rather spontaneously. If you don’t know what to say or what to answer instantaneously then the best response is to say- I will have to think about this and answer later. This way your true personality will shine through and it should not be pretentious or contrived. If you try to hide a shitty personality and are unqualified for the job then chances are you will get fired from the job anyway sooner or later.

WAYS YOU CAN DIFFER WITH YOUR FUTURE SPOUSE!!!

Before marriage it is always important to make sure that your views on morality are the same or that you trust each other, don’t lie, and believe in a monogamous relationship during marriage. Other things which are very important are your spending habits and whether you want to raise children. Agreeing on these major points is necessary for a good compatible marriage but there are other areas where commonality is not so important and may even be an antidote for a boring marital life. If you differ in these 8 general areas then it is no great reason for being overly concerned and it can result in a rather interesting marriage and not a dull one.

Different hobbies and interests are acceptable and with time and the sharing of experiences you may even become more interested in those differing hobbies and interests yourself. I had a scientific background and a great interest in technology, tools, and science and my wife was an artist interested in crafts, knitting, sewing, and dress making which I considered at first to basically be a waste of time, not a money maker, and basically boring trivia.

Over the years I made aesthetic evaluations based primarily upon how close to reality and nature the artistic items were. I was surprised that with time my tastes and spouse’s tastes became more alike and I developed a good sense of color, texture, etc. and became much better at evaluating artistic expressions and was surprised how often she asked me for advice, I gladly offered it, and we often agreed.

Different political beliefs are possible because one spouse will basically think that government should get involved in helping out humans in need and the other spouse may basically feel that humans should behave more responsibly and government help should only be used as a last resort. Let’s face it, establishment Republicans and Democrats basically believe in growing government and passing laws often favoring the rich and special interests even though they may claim publically that they are representing and addressing the needs of minorities, the poor, and middle class.

Sexual turn-ons may slightly differ in spouses and some may seem rather unusual and kinky. With time and having sex the same basic way very often you may eventually try doing some of that kinky stuff as a change of pace and find out that it is not that bad after all and perhaps perfectly acceptable. After all, pleasing one another sexually can be important even though some of the desired variations may take a little effort and perhaps unpleasant sacrifice to fulfill.

It is not unusual for taste in movies, music, and TV to be different with women often liking love stories, family films, and romance a lot while men often prefer action films and sports related subject matter.

Different cultural, religious, and ethnic backgrounds can sometimes challenge a relationship if there is no common morality but often these differences can be accepted and even appreciated with the passage of time. Most conflicts which will arise can be ironed out if dogmatic relatives do not get too involved and start interfering in the marriage and trying to run it in one direction only or a direction which is opposed to the beliefs and practices of one spouse exclusively.

Of course if you are a dogmatic Muslim, Jehovah Witness, or Orthodox Jew then a different religion for a spouse will not work. Most religions are relatively flexible with liberal and conservative wings and a shared basic morality which is don’t lie, don’t steal, and don’t commit adultery if married.

Introvert and extrovert spouses can often make a go of it where the introverted spouse leaves most of the socializing to the other spouse and focuses mainly on family responsibilities and not social ones. I am an introvert without a close friend and let my wife take care of social connections. It has worked well this way for over 25 years. I am much more selective in the humans that I associate with than my wife who maintains minimal contact with about a hundred humans who have crossed her life but even here she only has a handful of a few good friends and her sister whom she stays in frequent contact with.

Cleanliness and orderliness can be an abnormal obsession with some humans who may incessantly nag if something is not clean or orderly. If the house isn’t cleaned on a regular basis, the dishes are not always washed, the laundry is not always done, etc. you can still lead a relatively clean and orderly life as long as you are not nagged about it on a regular basis.

A sense of adventure and desire to travel may differ in spouses and is usually a costly enterprise since traveling to distant places and meeting different humans is often time consuming and expensive. If you don’t like adventure then you can let your spouse do the adventuresome stuff alone or with other like minded humans.

As long as you are not going into debt financing the travel and adventure, it is not something which will ruin a marriage.
