08 common Interview question and answers - Job Interview Skills 1. "Tell me a little about yourself." You should take this opportunity to show your ...


00:00:05

Hello my name is Niharika. When you apply

for a job and your'e called for an interview,

00:00:12

there are various questions that are asked

and the better prepared you are, the more

00:00:17

successful your interview would be. Well,

you might have come across various videos

00:00:23

online that talk about the most common interview

questions and answers. This video would be

00:00:29

a little different, because it's not just

about the questions and answers, we are gonna

00:00:34

talk. I'm also gonna explain that what exactly

the interviewer thinks, when he's asking certain

00:00:41

questions. What exact answers he's looking at and what are the common mistakes that you usually do.

00:00:54

The first most common question that is asked

by the interviewer is, So tell me something

00:00:59

about yourself or he or she might also ask,

that run me through your CV? Now here the

00:01:07

interviewer is not really interested in your

answer. What they are looking at is your confidence,

00:01:15

your enthusiasm and the passion that you answer

with. So it's the best time that you show

00:01:21

off your communication skills. Now usually

I have observed that many people end up saying,

00:01:28

Ahh I love watching movies, I think I love

partying. I have so many friends, so I really

00:01:34

enjoy partying. No that's not the right way

that you answer to this question. What you

00:01:40

need to talk about is your education, where

you grew up or you can also talk about your

00:01:47

past work experience, if you have any and

your personal interests. For example, you

00:01:53

can say, Ahh well I grew up in France and

I studied accounting. I also worked for an

00:02:00

accounting firm for about eight months and

I really enjoy numbers, so maybe that's exactly

00:02:08

the reason, I love to solve them. Solving

them is so much fun and in my spare time,

00:02:15

I really like reading and also go out jogging

only if the weather allows me too. So that's

00:02:22

the way you would answer to this question.

00:02:31

The second most popular question that is asked

by an interviewer is , What are your strengths?

00:02:38

Now here the interviewer is looking at how

positive, you think about yourself. It's quite

00:02:44

a general question, there's no right or a

wrong answer to it, but if you give out one

00:02:51

liners such as, Oh I'm a very friendly person,

I love being with people and people love being

00:02:57

with me. That just doesn't sound great for

an interview. Isn't it? So what you can say

00:03:04

is, My strongest trait is attention to detail.

I totally believe in planning and execution.

00:03:12

In fact even when I was in college, I used

to really organize my week and many people,

00:03:19

because of my very outgoing nature. Many people

have said that I am quite approachable, so

00:03:26

I believe these are my strengths.

00:03:36

The third most common question that is asked

is, So what are your weaknesses? Here for

00:03:42

this question, you need not be really negative

about your self. I have heard people saying,

00:03:48

well I am a very impatient person or people

also say, That I get angry easy. Well, that's

00:03:55

not the right answer. Maybe that is your weakness,

but you need not bring it out. The best answer

00:04:02

to this, because what the interviewer is looking

at is whether you can identify your weakness

00:04:08

and how you can cover it up. So one of the

examples, that you can use to answer this

00:04:15

question is, I think my weakness is that I

am way too detail oriented. I try to accomplish

00:04:23

everything and I just want everything to be

perfect, but then I realize that I'm losing

00:04:29

out on time, so maybe that makes me submitting

these projects pretty late. So I think that

00:04:37

is one of the weaknesses. So here basically,

what you are doing is, you are displaying

00:04:42

that maybe, you run out of time, but your'e

also giving a very positive aspect to it that,

00:04:48

you are a perfectionists. And that' s exactly

what we saw as a strength in the previous

00:04:53

question too. So I think this is one of the

best ways that you can answer to this question.

00:05:04

The next common question that is asked is,

Where do you see yourself in five years from

00:05:10

now or the interviewer might also ask that,

What are your long term or your short term

00:05:16

goals? Now here, Iv'e seen people really struggle

to answer this question. Well, maybe, because

00:05:24

you yourself have no idea, where you would

like to be, so usually people end up saying,

00:05:30

Oh I would like to be the CEO of this company

or I would like to own an airline. That doesn't

00:05:37

sound right, so what a good answer to this

question would be, because here the interviewer

00:05:44

is looking at, how committed you are gonna

be to this company? A very clear path with

00:05:51

commitment, because you know what's the attrition

rate these days. So he wants to know, how

00:05:56

long would you stick to the company? So one

of the best answers that you can give, would

00:06:02

be, Well, five years from now, I think I would

like to be in a management position. Till

00:06:08

then I would like to gain a practical experience

and then eventually become a manager. Of course,

00:06:15

I would like to share and also learn a lot

of new things from my team members.

00:06:28

The next most popular question that is asked

is, So tell me something about our company

00:06:33

or what do you know about our company? Now

here the interviewer of course has knowledge

00:06:39

about his own company, Right? That he's working

for, but what he is looking at is whether

00:06:45

you are serious about this job or not? Whether

you have just come for one of those random

00:06:51

interviews? So many people are usually let

down, because of the lack of research about

00:06:57

the company, so what you need to do is research.

Go online learn about the positive attributes

00:07:04

about the company. Learn about their products,

their history and etc. So one of the best

00:07:11

ways that you can answer to this question

is, Oh well your company is very well known

00:07:17

for the customer service and you also won

an award for the best service provider in

00:07:23

the country. And of course, you also have

a great clientele, so that's one of the best

00:07:29

ways that you can answer this question.

00:07:37

Sixth most common question that is asked is,

How well do you handle a change? Well, the

00:07:44

philosophy behind this question is to know,

would you be able to cope up with a change?

00:07:50

Because usually companies definitely come

up with different strategies, employees come

00:07:57

and go, so would you be able to handle that?

People usually end up saying, Oh of course,

00:08:03

I am great at handling a change. Well, trust

me the interviewer would not be impressed

00:08:09

with this answer. How you can answer to this

question with an example, would be. Well,

00:08:17

of course I can handle a change, because in

my previous company, one of our bosses, one

00:08:23

of our immediate bosses had to quit and there

was this new boss, who came in and he had

00:08:28

completely changed our strategy of a project.

So of course, I'm very flexible and hardworking

00:08:36

too, so we managed it with our team efforts

and definitely the results were pretty good.

00:08:44

So this is the way that you could answer to

this question.

00:08:53

How well do you work under pressure? Now the

00:09:00

reason behind this question is the employer

or the interviewer wants to know that do you

00:09:06

get really stressed out? Do you get really

panicked under pressure? Because these days

00:09:12

companies, of course expect you to take more

and more responsibility and of course a greater

00:09:19

work load. So the best way to answer this

question is, well definitely working under

00:09:27

pressure or without pressure works just the

same for me. In fact in one of the companies

00:09:33

that I was working, there was a project that

was given to us, which had to be completed

00:09:40

in four days. Which usually takes ten days

and the whole team is like so stressed out,

00:09:47

they panicked and they just didn't know what

to do, but then I insured that they settled

00:09:53

down . We prioritized our work and in fact

in a very organized manner, we completed the

00:10:00

project. Of course we also worked late nights,

but that definitely helped to submit our project

00:10:07

in four days. So I think working under pressure

is not too bad for me. So this is one of the


00:10:23

The last common question that is asked is,

How do you handle important decisions? Now

00:10:30

the reason behind this question is usually,

If someone or the interviewer is hiring the

00:10:37

person or hiring you for a management position

or for a lead position. He wants to know that

00:10:45

someday when you have to handle a very important,

a very critical decision. How would you do

00:10:50

that? So many people end up saying, You know

what I really haven't come across, I really

00:10:57

haven't dealt with such difficult situations.

That's not the right answer you would say,

00:11:03

One of the best answers that I can help you

with is, You can say, Handling decisions is

00:11:10

definitely considered to be a little difficult,

but I am sure I can do it, because my experience.

00:11:16

I would rely on my experience, I would also

weigh on the pros and cons. Of course, I would

00:11:24

also take some advice from my team members

and I'm sure that would help me to come on

00:11:30

a decision. We will also look at the consequences of the decision.

00:11:36

So definitely I can go ahead and make decisions.

00:11:41

So that brings me to the

end of this lesson. I hope all of these questions

00:11:45

and answers are helpful for your interview.

And if you are going for an interview. Wish

00:11:52

you all the very best. Do well and I will

see you soon in the next lesson. Take care.

00:11:58

Thank you.
