HR Interview Questions and Answers,Tell me about yourself. Start with the present and tell why you are well qualified for the position Remember that the. key to all successful interviewing is to match your qualifications to what the interviewer is. looking for In other words you must sell what the buyer is buying This is the single most. important strategy in job hunting, So before you answer this or any question it s imperative that you try to uncover your. interviewer s greatest need want problem or goal,To do so make you take these two steps. Do all the homework you can before the hr interview to uncover this person s wants and needs. not the generalized needs of the industry or company. As early as you can in the interview ask for a more complete description of what the position. entails You might say I have a number of accomplishments I d like to tell you about but I want. to make the best use of our time together and talk directly to your needs To help me do that. could you tell me more about the most important priorities of this position All I know is what I. heard from the recruiter read in the classified ad etc. Then ALWAYS follow up with a second and possibly third question to draw out his needs even. more Surprisingly it s usually this second or third question that unearths what the interviewer. is most looking for, You might ask simply And in addition to that or Is there anything else you see as essential. to success in this position, This process will not feel easy or natural at first because it is easier simply to answer questions.
but only if you uncover the employer s wants and needs will your answers make the most sense. Practice asking these key questions before giving your answers the process will feel more. natural and you will be light years ahead of the other job candidates you re competing with. After uncovering what the employer is looking for describe why the needs of this job bear. striking parallels to tasks you ve succeeded at before Be sure to illustrate with specific examples. of your responsibilities and especially your achievements all of which are geared to present. yourself as a perfect match for the needs he has just described. What are your greatest strengths, Visit http TechPreparation com for more Interview Questions with Answers Page 2. You know that your key strategy is to first uncover your interviewer s greatest wants and needs. before you answer questions And from Question 1 you know how to do this. Prior to any interview you should have a list mentally prepared of your greatest strengths You. should also have a specific example or two which illustrates each strength an example chosen. from your most recent and most impressive achievements. You should have this list of your greatest strengths and corresponding examples from your. achievements so well committed to memory that you can recite them cold after being shaken. awake at 2 30AM, Then once you uncover your interviewer s greatest wants and needs you can choose those. achievements from your list that best match up, As a general guideline the 10 most desirable traits that all employers love to see in their. employees are, A proven track record as an achiever especially if your achievements match up with the. employer s greatest wants and needs,Intelligence management savvy.
Honesty integrity a decent human being, Good fit with corporate culture someone to feel comfortable with a team player who meshes. well with interviewer s team,Likeability positive attitude sense of humor. Good communication skills, Dedication willingness to walk the extra mile to achieve excellence. Definiteness of purpose clear goals,Enthusiasm high level of motivation. Confident healthy a leader,What are your greatest weaknesses.
Disguise strength as a weakness, Example I sometimes push my people too hard I like to work with a sense of urgency and. everyone is not always on the same wavelength, Visit http TechPreparation com for more Interview Questions with Answers Page 3. Drawback This strategy is better than admitting a flaw but it s so widely used it is transparent. to any experienced interviewer, BEST ANSWER and another reason it s so important to get a thorough description of your. interviewer s needs before you answer questions Assure the interviewer that you can think of. nothing that would stand in the way of your performing in this position with excellence Then. quickly review you strongest qualifications, Example Nobody s perfect but based on what you ve told me about this position I believe I d. make an outstanding match I know that when I hire people I look for two things most of all Do. they have the qualifications to do the job well and the motivation to do it well Everything in. my background shows I have both the qualifications and a strong desire to achieve excellence in. whatever I take on So I can say in all honesty that I see nothing that would cause you even a. small concern about my ability or my strong desire to perform this job with excellence. Alternate strategy if you don t yet know enough about the position to talk about such a perfect. Instead of confessing a weakness describe what you like most and like least making sure that. what you like most matches up with the most important qualification for success in the position. and what you like least is not essential, Example Let s say you re applying for a teaching position If given a choice I like to spend as.
much time as possible in front of my prospects selling as opposed to shuffling paperwork back. at the office Of course I long ago learned the importance of filing paperwork properly and I do. it conscientiously But what I really love to do is sell if your interviewer were a sales manager. this should be music to his ears, Tell me about something you did or failed to do that you now feel a little ashamed of As. with faults and weaknesses never confess a regret But don t seem as if you re stonewalling. Best strategy Say you harbor no regrets then add a principle or habit you practice regularly for. healthy human relations, Example Pause for reflection as if the question never occurred to you Then say to hr You. know I really can t think of anything Pause again then add I would add that as a general. management principle I ve found that the best way to avoid regrets is to avoid causing them in. the first place I practice one habit that helps me a great deal in this regard At the end of each. day I mentally review the day s events and conversations to take a second look at the people. and developments I m involved with and do a double check of what they re likely to be feeling. Sometimes I ll see things that do need more follow up whether a pat on the back or maybe a. five minute chat in someone s office to make sure we re clear on things whatever. Visit http TechPreparation com for more Interview Questions with Answers Page 4. I also like to make each person feel like a member of an elite team like the Boston Celtics or LA. Lakers in their prime I ve found that if you let each team member know you expect excellence. in their performance if you work hard to set an example yourself and if you let people know. you appreciate and respect their feelings you wind up with a highly motivated group a team. that s having fun at work because they re striving for excellence rather than brooding over. slights or regrets, Why are you leaving or did you leave this position. If you have a job presently tell the hr, If you re not yet 100 committed to leaving your present post don t be afraid to say so Since. you have a job you are in a stronger position than someone who does not But don t be coy. either State honestly what you d be hoping to find in a new spot Of course as stated often. before you answer will all the stronger if you have already uncovered what this position is all. about and you match your desires to it,If you do not presently have a job tell the hr.
Never lie about having been fired It s unethical and too easily checked But do try to deflect. the reason from you personally If your firing was the result of a takeover merger division wide. layoff etc so much the better, But you should also do something totally unnatural that will demonstrate consummate. professionalism Even if it hurts describe your own firing candidly succinctly and without a. trace of bitterness from the company s point of view indicating that you could understand. why it happened and you might have made the same decision yourself. Your stature will rise immensely and most important of all you will show you are healed from. the wounds inflicted by the firing You will enhance your image as first class management. material and stand head and shoulders above the legions of firing victims who at the slightest. provocation zip open their shirts to expose their battle scars and decry the unfairness of it all. For all prior positions, Make sure you ve prepared a brief reason for leaving Best reasons more money opportunity. responsibility or growth,The Silent Treatment, Like a primitive tribal mask the Silent Treatment loses all it power to frighten you once you. refuse to be intimidated If your interviewer pulls it keep quiet yourself for a while and then ask. Visit http TechPreparation com for more Interview Questions with Answers Page 5. with sincere politeness and not a trace of sarcasm Is there anything else I can fill in on that. point That s all there is to it, Whatever you do don t let the Silent Treatment intimidate you into talking a blue streak. because you could easily talk yourself out of the position. Why should I hire you, By now you can see how critical it is to apply the overall strategy of uncovering the employer s.
needs before you answer questions If you know the employer s greatest needs and desires this. question will give you a big leg up over other candidates because you will give him better. reasons for hiring you than anyone else is likely to reasons tied directly to his needs. Whether your interviewer asks you this question explicitly or not this is the most important. question of your interview because he must answer this question favorably in is own mind. before you will be hired So help him out Walk through each of the position s requirements as. you understand them and follow each with a reason why you meet that requirement so well. Example As I understand your needs you are first and foremost looking for someone who can. manage the sales and marketing of your book publishing division As you ve said you need. someone with a strong background in trade book sales This is where I ve spent almost all of my. career so I ve chalked up 18 years of experience exactly in this area I believe that I know the. right contacts methods principles and successful management techniques as well as any. person can in our industry, You also need someone who can expand your book distribution channels In my prior post my. innovative promotional ideas doubled then tripled the number of outlets selling our books I m. confident I can do the same for you, You need someone to give a new shot in the arm to your mail order sales someone who knows. how to sell in space and direct mail media Here too I believe I have exactly the experience you. need In the last five years I ve increased our mail order book sales from 600 000 to. 2 800 000 and now we re the country s second leading marketer of scientific and medical. books by mail Etc etc etc, Every one of these selling couplets his need matched by your qualifications is a touchdown. that runs up your score IT is your best opportunity to outsell your competition. Aren t you overqualified for this position, As with any objection don t view this as a sign of imminent defeat It s an invitation to teach the. interviewer a new way to think about this situation seeing advantages instead of drawbacks. Visit http TechPreparation com for more Interview Questions with Answers Page 6. Example I recognize the job market for what it is a marketplace Like any marketplace it s. subject to the laws of supply and demand So overqualified can be a relative term depending. on how tight the job market is And right now it s very tight I understand and accept that. I also believe that there could be very positive benefits for both of us in this match. Because of my unusually strong experience in I could start to contribute. right away perhaps much faster than someone who d have to be brought along more slowly. There s also the value of all the training and years of experience that other companies have. invested tens of thousands of dollars to give me You d be getting all the value of that without. having to pay an extra dime for it With someone who has yet to acquire that experience he d. have to gain it on your nickel, I could also help you in many things they don t teach at the Harvard Business School For.
example how to hire train motivate etc When it comes to knowing how to work well with. people and getting the most out of them there s just no substitute for what you learn over. many years of front line experience You company would gain all this too. From my side there are strong benefits as well Right now I am unemployed I want to work. very much and the position you have here is exactly what I love to do and am best at I ll be. happy doing this work and that s what matters most to me a lot more that money or title. Most important I m looking to make a long term comm.
