Find Answers to Common Interview Questions


When you’re looking for a job, it’s wise to find a list of interview questions that an employer may ask so that you have a general idea of how you’re going to answer them.

While answering interview questions is never easy, you can become more comfortable in interviewing situations by practicing answers to interview questions. Online you can find a list of general interview questions, plus, many specific job interview questions and answers.

A good interview question gives the employer an opportunity to see how well you can reason through issues and problems, as well as, whether or not you’re a good fit for their company. If an employer has tough interview questions lined up, you want to be able to answer them with thoughtfulness and common sense.

When people are nervous, they sometimes tend to babble or lose track of their thoughts. This is something you can avoid by printing out sample job interview questions and practicing your answers over and over. You may even want to tape record yourself so you can hear how you come across from the interviewer’s perspective.

While you’re studying the various interview questions and answers, be aware that there are illegal interview questions that an employer should not ask you. If you are faced with an uncomfortable personal question, remember that you do not have to answer it. Let them know politely that you’d rather discuss what you can do for them as an employee.

Here is a brief list of some common interview questions:

** Tell me about yourself
** Why do you want to work here?
** Where do you see yourself in five years?
** Why should we hire you?
** What are your weaknesses?

You can find out how to answer these questions and more by visiting a good job interview resource guide online.
