So, are you ready to know the step that makes you successful?
Consider the questions given below are the most important as well as common questions asked in an interview.
These questions are classified by human resource management of different companies and also by the entrepreneurs who are leading the world.
Make this list your interview question study guide.
The whole interview session is classified into three divisions which are also known as divisions of achievement.
Here are those divisions:
DIVISIONS OF ACHIEVEMENT:
1. Division-1: Interaction.
2. Division-2: Based on division 1.
3. Division-3: Impromptu.
Division one is an interactive session between the interviewee and the interviewer, it is the time when your body language tells about you.
The first division also includes the most important and common question of the interview that is:
Q1. Tell me something about yourself?
Your interviewers will likely start out with a question about yourself and your background to get to know you. Start out by giving them an overview of your current position or activities, then provide the most important and relevant highlights from your background that make you most qualified for the role. If you’d like, it is acceptable to include some personal details about things like your interests, hobbies or family. Doing so can help you be more memorable and personable to the interviewer.
You can also follow the ten on ten formula which includes ten steps to give a proper answer to this question which is mentioned below:
Start your introduction with step one:
Step1- Your full name and your hometown.
Step2- Brief family background.
Step3- Educational Qualification.
Step4- Short term goal.
Step5- Long term goal.
Step6- Strengths and skills.
Step7- Weakness. ( Don't tell until and unless they ask from you ).
Step10- The end line. ( End by impressing the interviewers ).
Remember throughout your answer to focus on the experiences and skills that are going to be most relevant for the interviewer when they’re thinking about this particular position and this company. And ultimately, don’t be afraid to relax a little bit, tell stories and anecdotes the interviewer already has your resume, so they also want to know a little more about you.
The second division depends on the answers of division one. It also contains all the questions relevant to division one.
Q2. Why should we hire you?
It's just not a question, it's an opportunity to sell self just be confident and explain your skills and abilities that make you unique. Your job here is to craft an answer that covers three things: that you can not only do the work, but you can also deliver great results, that you'll really fit in with the team and culture and that you'd be a better hire than any of the other candidates.
Q3. What are your strength and weakness?
The most important thing while giving an interview is to say true just share your true strengths always be relevant which means choose your strengths that are most targeted to this particular position.
Try to be specific because time is limited. At last, follow up with an example of how you've demonstrated these traits in professional life.
Sharing your weaknesses can show that you are self-aware and want to continuously get better at your job traits that are extremely attractive to many employers. Remember to start with the weakness and then discuss the measures you’ve taken to improve. This way, you’re finishing your answer on a positive note.
The third and last division is a collection of impromptu questions which are not relevant but these questions show that interviewer is interested in you.
