Then you should browse through these sample interview questions and answers. Some of them may be common, others may be tough, but all must be answered well in order to impress your interviewer.
• If he asks how long you have been job hunting, tell your interviewer that you have only started looking for a job recently. Show him that you have a clear goal in mind, and that working for their company fits your goal to a T.
This will show him that you are really interested in working for the company, and are not just waiting for the highest pay offer.
• If he asks how much you would like to be paid if you get the job, tell him that you need more time to think about it and ask him to make you an offer. If you give a definite price that is too high, the interviewer might reject you, and if you offer a low amount, you might end up underpaid.
• If he asks why you applied to the company he is working for during your job interview, show how much you know about the company. Talk about their company website or brochure and discuss why you agree with their mission-vision statement.
If you have specific projects that you think may benefit the company, this may be a good time to give a brief overview of one of them.
• If he asks you if you can start working immediately and you are still undecided on whether or not to take the job, do not panic. Explain that you are very interested in taking the job, but that you need at least a day to think it through as getting a job is a big life-changing decision.
This will show him that you are a rational person who does not make mind important decisions haphazardly.
These are only a few of the many questions that may be asked of you during your job interview, but now you are more ready with the knowledge of how to answer four common and tough interview questions.
