One of the most dreaded of all interview questions is the ‘greatest weakness’ minefield. Many recruiters are, in fact, moving away from using a question that has become over-used and predictable, yet it is still one you have to prepare for.
To answer this question, think of people who embody the qualities that you most admire and that would be most valued in the position you’re applying for. Explain why you look up to them and how they have influenced you either directly or indirectly.
It is becoming increasingly common for interviewers to throw in some unusual questions during interviews rather than sticking to the tried-and-true. This could be for a number of reasons: they want to see if you can think on your feet, can think creativel
Despite its initial air of morbidity, this question has less to do with actually dying and more to do with your aspirations and motivations. Your answer will give the employer an insight into how you prioritise your life and what you hope to achieve.
The way you answer this is obviously going to depend on the job you’re applying for, but in general it’s best to demonstrate that you are able to and enjoy working both independently and with others, as most jobs require you to do both at different times.
Such an interesting question deserves an interesting answer, but be careful not to get swept up in your imagination. The interviewer is trying to create a picture of who you are, so be careful how you portray yourself.
When the interviewer asks you this question, they’re getting to the key issue: why should they hire you and not someone else? Answering this persuasively could clinch the deal and make the difference between a job offer and a rejection letter.
This is a question that may come up if you are applying for a graduate, internship or vacation program. It’s best not to get caught out unprepared for this question, as it requires some thinking and reflecting.
Set yourself apart from the pack! You may find yourself reiterating some of the things you said in response to \'Tell me about yourself\', but this time try to be more specific in linking your talents to the requirements of the position.
Think about a time you have come up against a challenge that you successfully resolved. Don\'t dredge up a catastrophe that resulted in personal or professional failure – stick to a story with a happy ending.
This is your chance to give your potential employer some insight into who you are as a person. After all, if they hire you they’re going to be spending at least 40 hours a week with you, so they want to know what sort of person they’ll be taking on board.
The point of this question is to learn a little about your interests and what makes you tick. This will also give the interviewer an idea of whether you will fit into the office. Choose three people who represent your interests.
