Common Job Interview Questions

Knowing some of the traditional job interview questions that you’ll be asked can help to prepare you that little bit. So, just what are some of the more common job interview questions?

1) What are your strengths and weaknesses

2) What are your long term goals

3) Where do you want to be in ten years

4) How do you handle stress on the job

5) Tell us a little about yourself

Keep in mind when the interviewer asks "tell us a little about yourself," it isn't a request for your entire life story. Try to keep your response geared toward your professional life, with a couple outside interests you may have to show you are a well-rounded individual. You may want to leave out personal aspects of your life, such as you're going through a rough patch with your spouse or partner, but you're trying to work things out. An interviewing doesn't want to hear those things.

Before going to your next job interview, work with a friend to “role play” a Q & A session. This way you will be able to work out the pre-interview jitters and come up with some great answers you can use in the actual interview.
