The job interview is one of the milestones to be able to be hired by a company. But, during the interview, it will be important to be able to eyes grader. At the first interview the questions asked by the examiner are very predictable! But, the questions that will be decisive for purposes of employment, are generally five:

1. Tell me about some of her
This is one of the questions most classic! The recruiter expects from you a short answer but concise and to explain the main characteristics of the candidate, his studies and his work experience.

HOW TO RESPOND

To this question I suggest you respond succinctly, and listing your studies and most of all your past work experience, highlighting all that you have learned from previous jobs. Try to understand the recruiter benefits that the company would now accept.

HOW NOT TO ANSWER

Try not to talk about hobbies and personal habits unless required! This question must answer primarily talking about your studies and work experience.

2. because they want to work in this company?
This question has a dual purpose for the interviewer: Do the candidates know what the company and its profile matches the job position offer. Try to appear motivated!

HOW TO RESPOND

Respond properly to this question is to demonstrate to the interviewer that the position offered by the company is in line with your professional aspirations. You also have to prove also that they have the skills and qualifications for being considered the ideal candidate.

HOW NOT TO ANSWER

Avoid absolutely to refer to economic issues (as the salary!) And the fact that the company is very close to home. These, in fact, show the recruiter that you are driven by the motivation and desire to learn new things, but only by factors that do not bring benefits to the company.

3. What is your “Achilles heel”?
This question requires a response very sincere, so do not you say that you do not have any! The interviewer, with this question, want to know what you think of yourself. Try also to highlight all the weaknesses that you have managed to overcome and / or fight through your skills and your preparation.

4. as seen in five years?
HOW TO RESPOND

Show up more ambitious, motivated and ready to do anything to achieve your goals. Show that your ambitions coincide with the job position you want.

HOW NOT TO ANSWER

In answering this question, I suggest you always demonstrate modesty! Do not say things like, ” I see the president in a few years “, because it would show only your immaturity! In short, try not to answer the interviewer proposing objectives difficult or impossible to achieve!

5. why did you leave your previous job?
Of course, this only applies to those of you who already had work experience in the past.

HOW TO RESPOND

An effective way to answer this question is to understand who is in front that you did it to undertake new challenges and new experiences.

HOW NOT TO ANSWER

I strongly suggest you never speak ill of your former employer or the company for which you worked previously. Rather, try to prove that they were in disagreement with your former boss, explaining why. Also, do not ever say that the reason why you left your old company, was due to a salary too low! In 99% of cases, no company will take if proved to be so “tied” to the economic factor.
