Hey guys! Today I’m going to help you all prepare for your next interview. I’m going to list and talk about some common questions that one might be asked in an interview. Potentially knowing what the interviewer might ask before you get interviewed can be extremely beneficial. It can help your confidence and really set you apart from other applicants.
A vast majority of the questions that you would be asked in an interview would be about yourself. Questions like “Tell me about yourself,” “Why did you choose your major,” or “Tell me about the class you’re taking.” I’ve personally been asked both of these questions in interviews. The point of an interview is for the interviewer to learn more about you as a person. So they are usually going to ask you questions about who you are as person, to get to know you a little better before hiring you. Talking about yourself can be very difficult, so make sure you prepare what you what you might say if you’re asked about yourself.
Some of the other questions are usually about the job. Questions like “Why do you want to work for us,” or “What made you apply for this job.” These questions are geared to understand your enthusiasm for the job. Interviewers want to know that you want to work for them and for their company. They ask you questions about the job, to see how interested you are in working for them. To prepare for these questions gain some general knowledge on the job and company. Know what you are going to do and who you are going to do it for. Having this little bit of excess knowledge can give you an upper hand in the interview.
Being prepared is the key. If you are ready to be interviewed, and know what the interview might ask, you’re golden. Like I said, know before you go.
