8 most asked questions in a job interview.

In every job interview you will come across the 8 most asked questions mentioned below. It is worth studying them and having on the tip of your tongue what to say at the moment.

Being prepared for a job interview is essential for anyone who wants to succeed when it comes to getting the job they dreamed of. Rest assured that interviewers will get as much information from you as possible to see if you are what the company is really looking for. Some questions (most asked questions) are common and subjects about your latest experiences will be present for sure.

Nothing better than studying the following questions so that at “time H” you, at least, can do your “homework” well. Check out:

  • 1 – Tell us a little about yourself
    This is a question to check how you “sell your fish”. Whoever is interviewing you will observe how you do in your personal presentation. If you are convinced of who you are and show confidence, that will also be passed on to the interviewer;
  • 2 – What was your role and what did you do in your last job?
    At this point, the interviewer will check if you have mastered the activities you performed in your last role/company and will be able to have a broader view of your professional experience;
  • 3 – What do you know about our company and why do you want to be part of our staff?
    Knowing what the future company is about, what it does, what it sells, what its business is, is at least prudent on your part. It wouldn't be nice for you to say that you know nothing about the company you're trying to get in other than that it has this vacancy that could even be yours. Also saying why you want to be part of their staff means saying: your company needs me because I can offer this and that. At this point you already have the opportunity to show what you came for;
  • 4 – How do you see yourself in 5 years?
    Basically, the company wants to know if you are there just because you are desperate for a salary (even if this is true, don't say it that way because the company knows how many people are unemployed and that everyone works for a salary) or if you, in addition, will wear the company shirt. It also shows your planning ability;

  • 5 – Cite an example where you went through a big challenge in one of your last jobs and you came out victorious.
    The interviewer wants to know if you know how to recognize a challenge, if you have the capacity to propose a solution, create an action plan and if you can execute it;
  • 6 – Mention your weaknesses
    Hmmmmmm! I agree with you that this question doesn't make us very comfortable, after all it seems like a prank, doesn't it? In fact, the company wants to know if you are able to recognize where you need to improve and if you are doing something about it. But, for God's sake, don't expose absurd desires or feelings that could compromise you. Be professional;
  • 7 – Mention your strengths
    This is your time to shine, but be careful not to appear “Super Professional”. Talk about your qualifications and skills for the role you want in the future company. Show where you can make a difference;[adrotete banner=”12″]
  • 8 – Why did you leave the last company?
    Sight trap? Maybe, but you'll have to answer this question anyway. Remember that if you lie or omit something, the company can check with the old company. The best thing is to be as honest as possible and talk about the points that least harm you. Never under any circumstances speak ill of your last boss or your last company. This would be fatal for his disqualification in the selection process. Even if you never want to walk through the door of the last company again, keep this feeling to yourself. Show professional maturity.

In short: There are no perfect answers, but there is an obligation to be prepared for the above questions (most asked questions). This will show the employer that you are aware of what is happening in the market (at least in your area of expertise) and that you are sure that you are the ideal professional for the company.

Keep your resume up to date, update yourself and finally, I wish you all the luck in the world.
