Quick tips to answer the personal interview questions

As you go for a personal interview, always expect the question Tell us


something about yourself. Go prepared to answer it.

Understand the requirements of the role properly and keep your answer
ready for Why does this role interest you?

To judge your stability in the personal interview, the interviewer might ask a
direct question like Why do you think should we take you? Go
prepared to answer it.

Prepare your answer to the question the interviewer might ask about your
strengths and weaknesses in the interview. Take the word weaknesses as
liberally as possible.

Analyze the qualities that you required to achieve something big. Talk your
latest achievement in the interview. When asked about mistakes, mention the
one from long past.

Never approach the interviewer as a Job Beggar . Go as a Problem


Solver. Answer in positive when you are asked if you are speaking to
some other companies for your job search.

Show your flexible attitude during the personal interview. This can be done by
being open to relocation.

If you have stayed in your last job for too long or have switched the jobs very
frequently, have an answer ready to the queries that might appear during the
personal interview.

Demonstrate the keenness to learn if you do not have all the required
experience.

Never talk bad about your last jobs or employers.

Sound ambitious but stable.

Sound like a team player but be open to take the autonomous


responsibilities.

Dont jump on the salary in the initial part of the interview. Let the
interviewer take it out first.

Study about the company before you go for the interview. Ask intelligent
questions when give a chance to ask questions to interviewers.

Personal Interview Question - tip
Some tips to answer the question, why do you want to leave your present job?
- Be to the point - too many words may mean that you are trying to cover up the situtation
- Don't criticise the last employer.
- Discuss about the new opportunities you are seeking
- Don't talk about salary and comfort
- Don't lie about the jobs cuts (if that is the reason of your switch) but use the right words.
Thanks

Personal Interview Questions.
Some questions I have faced at personal interviews:
1. Describe your standards of success?
2. If we hired you for this position, how would you set your goals for first 50 days?
3. Being the manager how would you ensure that the work atmosphere for your team is
congenial?
4.What is your way of dealing with stress?
5. How would you ensure that your team meets the deadlines?

Things you should not say at an HR interview.
We often pay attention to what answers to give at an interview but we forget what not to say at
an interview. Here are certain things which you should not say at an interview:
1. What is your company's business? or What do you do?
2. Use of slang words - its a formal discussion
3. How much salary do you offer?
4. Criticizing your previous employer
5. What benefits do your offer? - work from home facility/ flexi-timings/ paid vaccations etc.
