Interview Question Preparation

Always Be Ready for Interviews

Don’t get caught off guard during
the interview

If a company line manager is handling the interview, a formal interview question and answer model may not be followed. It’s still important to know your CV and the organisation.

Develop ready answers to the interview questions below:
  • Why did you choose this particular role? Where do you want to go from here?
  • Why would you like to work for our organisation?
  • Where do you see yourself five years from now?
  • What was your last compensation package?
  • What style of management do you prefer?
  • What interests you about our products and services?
  • Can you get references from previous employers? What would they say about you?
  • What have you learnt from former jobs? Which job did you most enjoy?
  • Can you give me an example of initiative / teamwork / resourcefulness / creativity?
  • Describe an area you would like to improve
  • What traits do feel one must have to move ahead in a company?
  • Are you willing to relocate?
  • Specifically, what skills do you bring to this role?

While acknowledging areas of weakness may feel uncomfortable to many candidates during interviews, these answers can often be expressed in a positive way, and show the intent to improve:

Question: Can you tell me about a weakness?

Answer: I have tendency to throw myself into every project large and small. Some projects might be a bit less important or have a deadline farther out, so I’m working on improving my prioritising.
