Commonly asked interview questions

It’s a well known fact that you will be asked questions during an interview to establish if you are the right person for the job. You should spend some time before the interview constructing honest and precise answers to questions you can expect to be asked to avoid stumbling. Being prepared for such questions will help raise your confidence and ensure you are expressive in your response. Below are some examples. 

  • What is it about the industry that appeals to you? Why did you decide to join it?
  • Why would you like to work for our organisation?
  • What appealed to you about this role? What can you bring to this role?
  • What style of management do you work best with?
  • How would your past managers and colleagues describe you? How would your friend’s describe you?
  • What are your strengths and weaknesses?
  • Describe a situation where you had a deadline that needed to be met.
  • Tell me about a time you had to deal with a difficult customer or situation? How did you handle this?
  • What has been your biggest accomplishment in your career?
  • Where do you see yourself in 1 year? Where do you find yourself in 5 years?
