Up until checking a candidate’s skills through various tests, employers ask many different questions during the interview, which typically refer to the information in the candidate`s CV, or require for solving some case studies.
Here are 10 questions you should be prepared for, when you meet your potential employer
1. How would you describe your professional career?
2. How is your career so far relevant for the job you apply for?
3. What would you qualify as you biggest professional challenge so far and how did you deal with it?
4. If you would be in my position, why would you hire yourself?
5. What do you know about the employing company?
6. Why did you give up your previous job?
7. Was there anything you really disliked about it?
8. Can you name some of your most significant professional accomplishments?
9. Where do you picture yourself in 5-6 years?
10. What are your salary expectations?
Recommendation for answering these questions
Before answering, it is best to clarify how many details the interviewer expects to hear. For a 3-5 minute presentation, it is best to briefly describe your professional experience, while for a 15-20 minutes presentation, you should be ready to talk in details and emphasize your skills. The skills you talk about for one of the road construction jobs in Colorado versus a brick laying job are going to be completely different, so be sure to do a rehersal interview with a friend or family member.
