Yes, yo have been called for an interview and you’re very enthusiastic. And of ocurse, you have to maintain that dose of optimism, the only thing you should think about is how you will answer to some less comfortable questions. Such questions can be your ticket to a different job or you won’t get well over the interview.
A few interview questions can be tricky, but employers ask these questions because they want to know your personality. Here are a few of them, which are also the most common uncomfortable interview questions:
Tell me a few things about yourself. When describing yourself, make sure that what you do is relevant for the job you want to get. Too many details will make the employer lose, forget information.
What made you leave your current job? This is a very tricky question. If you will answer that you are looking for a new opportunity, the employer may think that you were bored and you want something else instead. On the other hand, if you wil say that there were some changes in management and that the company stability was fragile, affecting you as well, you will give several reasons, which is better.
What are your biggest weaknesses and strengths? Don’t say: “I’m a perfectionist.” Instead, mention a quality that recommends you for the job to which you’re applying. When you name a weakness, choose something that is realistic and add that you’re trying to improve in that area. Add that it doesn’t affect your job responsibilities, but you said it just to be honest.
What are your salary expectations? During the job interview, don’t address the matter of salary fast. When that moment comes, provide a range with which you are comfortable. From this point, you can incrase that salary by 5, 10 or 15 percent. Once you will be in a better position, you can get other benefits.
