  • What are your skills and experience for the job?
  • How energetic or interested are you for the job and company?
  • Will you fit in the existing culture and office environment?

Let’s go through these questions and see how you should use them in various situations.

What are your skills and experience for the job?

It is very difficult to have exactly all the skills and experience which they want but you can tell about your related skills. Brainstorm about your all technical skills related to the job before you enter the job interview. Having experience in related field or same field can help you in explaining you technical skills to interviewers. You can drag interviewer to your skills when he/she ask you such questions:

  • What are your strengths/weakness?
  • What makes you fit in this job?
  • Tell us about yourself?
  • Why do you think that your are right candidate for this job?
  • Or any other questions asking about yourself.

How energetic or interested are you for the job and company?

Before going for a job interview, do some research about the company. Employer may wanted to know how interested are you for the job? Mostly, companies include their operational information on their website in about us section. You should read about it before the interview. You can also do some research about company history, market share, products and services. All this research is useful in answering questions like:

  • What do you know about our company?
  • Why you are interested in this job?
  • What motivates you about this job?
  • Where you see yourself in next 5 years?
  • etc.

Will you fit in the existing culture and office environment?

This question covers personal behavior. You may find cooperative colleagues in jobs and you can also see some rude people. Sometimes, you will have to deal with angry clients during your career. So, they can ask you about such situations in the interview. Companies may also operate in different type of cultures. You should observe or ask about company’s working environment. They may judge your behavior from questions like:

  • What people around you think about you?
  • What makes you fit into your company?
  • Describe about your working style?
  • etc.

Be polite and patient when answering such questions. Some of the questions are not to know if you are telling the correct thing or wrong but they are about your behavior. Companies may also have psychiatrists sitting in interview room just to notice your moves, talking style or etc. Or they can also ask weird questions. So, don’t be nervous if you face such questions. Be straightforward and tell the truth.

Good luck!
