How to answer 17 challenging interview questions like a pro

Although the employers may try to adapt the interview to the candidate and the role, some questions come up again and again.  These basic interview questions are always relevant and revealing, regardless of the job involved.

 Below we present 17 common interview questions and an approach that will allow you to answer each one.  You have undoubtedly seen some of these issues during your career.  If they have caused you problems in the past, you are finished worrying.  These strategies will help you prepare your answers to the most difficult interview questions you may be asked.

 1. Tell me a little about yourself

 Recruiters often ask this question to begin the interview.  Rather than dive directly into the thick of it, your interviewer asks you to introduce yourself.  Since this is such a general question, what he wants to know is "to what extent are you able to express yourself?  ".  While there are many ways to answer this question, we recommend that you provide a brief overview of your career by discussing topics such as recent jobs, skills, and certifications.  You can end your answer by giving your interviewer a brief overview of your personal hobbies, but this does not become the main focus of your answer.  The best way to prepare for this question?  Prepare a short professional biography (1 minute or less).  You will be amazed at how practical it will be.  It is likely, when you have finished reading, that one of the points you mentioned will be in the next question your interviewer asks you.

 2. What aspect of this job are you interested in?

 By this question, your interviewer tries to measure: a) your enthusiasm for the job;  and b) if you have read and understood the job description.  The best way to answer is to take over the role or responsibilities found in the job description.  If you have a blank and can not remember the details of the job, you will not be mistaken if you answer that you want to have "the opportunity to take advantage [name of one of your skills]".

 3. What are your main strengths?

 It is likely that this question will get lost if you try to gauge your interviewer to tell him what he wants to hear.  Your best option is to be honest.  You can not build a response for your interviewer without impact.  In addition, you may fail if you do not keep your word once you are hired.  While it is ideal to choose specific skills that fit the job, you strengths can just as easily be simple and suitable for any kind of job.  These universal forces include: working effectively despite deadlines, strong communication skills and punctuality.  It is always interesting to have these skills, no matter what job is on the table.

4. What are your main weaknesses?

 Contrary to the previous question, this can be difficult, since you can not reveal anything too damaging that will push the employer to withdraw his offer.  In this case, too much honesty can be problematic.  For example, you may find yourself in a bad position if you say that you are prone to procrastinating and not meeting deadlines.  Rather, try to talk about the positive criticisms you've had in the past and the fixes that they've pushed you to make.  Always be sure to point out how you are trying to fix a problem.

 5. What do you know about the company?

 This interview question clearly aims to verify if you have done your homework.  Show your enthusiasm by learning about the company before your interview.  It is likely that your interviewer does not ask too many specific questions, so you just have to go to the company's website and do a quick search on Google.  Just bringing up the latest news, such as a change in management, an important event for the company, or the recent launch of a product could earn you the first star in your interviewer's eyes and demonstrate that you're in control of your business.  folder.

 6. Why should we hire you?

 This question represents the perfect opportunity to highlight your highly relevant skills for the job you want.  It's even better if you manage to emphasize a point that sets you apart from others in your field.  Avoid responses that focus on your little one, such as "I always wanted to work for you" or "This job will help propel my career".  Instead, focus on the value you have to offer.

 7. What sets you apart from other candidates?

 It is likely that most of the candidates interviewed have very similar skills, so this question is only a variation of the previous question.  Your approach to responding to it should be the same: emphasize your skills and explain the value you bring to the business.  An effective strategy is to highlight here your interdisciplinary certifications and skills that are not the norm in the industry.  Be sure, however, to explain why they make you a better candidate for the job.

 8. Describe a conflict in which you have been involved and how it has been resolved

 One of the most dreaded and difficult interview questions on this list.  It is difficult for two reasons.  First, it requires you to report the facts on the spot.  Second, it could reveal a weakness that you would prefer to avoid.  This may seem logical, but the best way to answer this question is to describe a conflict that had a happy ending, ideally a conflict for which you were responsible.

 For example, you and your boss do not agree on how to approach a new client.  In the end, you present a revised strategy that represents a compromise based on aspects of both visions.  In this story, you highlight your positive traits, such as your ability to collaborate and your team spirit.  Remember, however, not to denigrate and choose a conflict that presents your previous workplace in a hostile light.  You will never leave a good impression if you try to destroy others in order to look good!

 9. What kind of boss do you want?

When an interviewer asks this question, he probably tries to check if you fit in with the company structure and its current leaders.  What should you answer?  Be honest without going into too much detail.  You never know which leaders you will work with.  Limit to things that are always positive, such as fairness, listening skills, abilities, intelligence, etc.  Most managers like to believe that they embody these traits, so that you do not run the risk of upsetting your potential boss.

10. Where do you imagine in 5 or 10 years?

 This question is to determine if the job you are applying for matches your long-term career plan.  Will you be gone in a few months?  Do you have unrealistic expectations about the future of the role?  To answer this question, just like the many other interview questions, be honest.  If you are hoping to access a higher position or a management position, say so, but be realistic.  Most interviewers will appreciate that you have ambition.  After all, five years is a long time.

 11. why do you leave your current job?

 If you leave for a trivial reason, for example, to try to get a higher position or to get closer to home, be honest and say it.  This question can be more risky if you have been fired or laid off.  Even in such a case, honesty is the best policy, since it is possible for your interviewer to contact the management of your previous employer.  But remember to conclude on a positive note and explain that you have learned from your mistakes.

 Never talk bad about your previous or current employers.  No matter how much you hated the job and no matter if your boss was a real bully, always be professional.  You will be amazed at how small the world is when looking for a job.  A negative attitude may suggest that you are a difficult person and suddenly withdraw an offer.

 12. How do your colleagues describe you?

 This question offers you an incredible opportunity to sell you to the point where you might seem to be bragging.  For example, you have to say in an interview that you're working hard, but it's even better when the comment comes from a colleague.  Remember the feedback you really received from your colleagues and clients.

 13. What are your salary expectations like?

 You do not want to get stuck at a specific salary at this stage.  Therefore, give a comfortable range, which will be a starting point for your employer while giving you the leeway to negotiate before signing your contract.  In doing so, you also send the ball back to your prospective employer's side.  It is he who will have to present you a convincing offer which corresponds to your expectations.  Remember, we are only at the first stage of negotiations.  You do not have to accept the first offer.  Check out our blog on the negotiation of a job offer to know the next steps.

 It is also important to find out about wages before your interview.  Compare the salaries of a few companies before arriving at an amount.  Also remember that salaries vary according to your place of residence and your years of experience.  Would you like to know the average salaries for your position?  Randstad's payroll guides are a great resource.

14. If you were an animal, what would you be?

 You may be asked such an enigma randomly.  This question is meant to make you think on your two feet.  How quickly and how creative will you be able to respond?  If your answer is related to the job, well done, but do not worry too much about the answer.  Interview questions of this type are designed to gauge your personality.  If you have difficulty answering on the spot, give yourself some time to regroup your thoughts by answering, for example: "Your question is interesting.  I think I should say ... "

 15. What do you think our company could do better?

 This is an ideal opportunity for you to really express your thoughts and to show that you have skills and that you have had very useful experiences that will allow you to solve the problems that will come your way.  However, be sure to do your research before the interview.  If you know the company, you will be able to answer better.  Never hesitate when asked this question.

 16. How do you react to criticism?

 Like other questions about conflict resolution, this interview question requires you to express yourself on a topic that can often make you feel uncomfortable.  Nobody likes criticism, but this is a reality that we face in the workplace.  Fortunately, there is only one acceptable way to answer this question.  See it from a constructive angle and not personally.  Even better if you remember a case where you've been criticized as an opportunity for growth.

 17. would you like to ask me questions?

 Too many job seekers breathe a sigh of relief upon hearing this question believing they came out of the interview unscathed.  They are happy to have finished and wish as soon as possible to shake hands with their interviewer and say goodbye.  By doing so, they miss a superb opportunity.  This question represents your last chance to show your enthusiasm for the job and that you are a hard worker.  By answering in the negative, you might seem selfless.  You do not know what question to ask?  Here are some examples:

  • What does a normal day or work week look like for this job?
  • What can you tell me about this post that did not appear in the job description?
  • How does one measure success in this position?
  • How would you describe the culture in the office?
  • Which aspects of the work for this company do you like the most?
  • What do you think are the main challenges for this position?
  • What will happen to this position in a few years?

 There is no doubt that these are just some of the difficult interview questions you will have to answer throughout your career.  The best way to answer any interview questions (whether or not in this list) is to prepare yourself.  Interview questions usually fall into one of three categories.  It's about the business, your work experiences, and what you bring to the table.  If you are ready to answer questions on these three topics, you will be able to answer any questions you may have.

 Remember that the purpose of the interviews is to find the right combination of employer and employee.  Interviewers want your success as much as you do.  They are not there to make you stumble or to deceive you.  They just want to convince themselves that they are hiring the right person!  Be honest and you will already be on the right track.
