Job Interview Questions You Need to Prepare for

So lets start with the common asked interview questions. These are the job interview questions that you will be asked in every job interview. The examples below will in the reality of a real job interview be worded differently, but the meaning will be the same.


Job Interview Question 1 “Tell me about yourself?”


At every job interview you be asked an opening question “why did you apply for this job?” “what is your experience in this field?” “tell me about yourself?” that ask for a summary of you and your experience.


You need to prepare a strong opening statement that will highlight your skills, talent, unique selling point and of course your experience in the sector. With this being the first job interview question you have been asked, you need to answer this question with confidence. To answer these opening questions, start by explaining your total years in the industry, your key achievements and one of your unique selling points.


What you are doing here is making it clear that you have the required criteria for the position, but that you also have something additional, something that makes you stand out.

The second section of the job interview is where you will be asked to give examples of the key skills required for the position. This is the competency section.


To answer these job interview questions you first need to set the scene. Explain the situation, goal or objective to ensure the interviewer understands the importance of the situation. Next explain the actions you took to achieve the required outcome.   The best way to deliver this is by explaining three things your undertook that had a positive impact on the outcome. Finally, summarize what you did and state the successful outcome.
