FIRST INTERVIEW – QUESTIONS

There is no magical system of identifying what questions you should ask and what questions you should expect during the 1st interview. Sometimes, an important question may arise, and you feel this should be brought up during the interview – a tip is shown here.

As long as you ask the interviewer politely, if you may take notes during the interview, it is extremely rare that an interviewer will say no. In fact, they will be pleased you are, as it shows that you are being attentive, and it will also calm your nerves.

Typical questions you may be asked

  1. Tell me about yourself?
  2. What do you know about this Company?
  3. Why do you want this job?
  4. What do you think you could you bring to this company?
  5. Why are you leaving your current job?
  6. If I were to ask your last Boss/Manager what he thought of you – what do you think he would he say about you?
  7. Name 3 key achievements since you left school
  8. What do you think are your strengths?
  9. What do you think are your weaknesses?

Before the interview finishes

Ask your questions (about 3 -5 is fine)

  1. What is the reason for this vacancy?
  2. Who would I be reporting to if I got the job?
  3. What date have you set to make a decision on this vacancy for shortlisting?

Finally

Thank the interviewer for taking the time to interview you today.

Confirm the decision date, or what the next stage will be.

Acknowledge the receptionist as you depart the building.
