Common Interview Questions

We asked our Corporate Recruiters to share some of the most common interview questions. Here's a short list. Be sure you can answer these concisely and confidently.

Ask a friend or mentor to help you with practice interviews so you are well-prepared.

Tell me about yourself.

  • Be ready to describe your experience and how it relates to the new organization.
  • Why do you want this job?
  • What are your strengths and weaknesses?
  • I'm interviewing multiple candidates, why should I hire you?
  • What can you do for us?
  • What do you see yourself doing in five years?
  • What is your reason for seeking this new position/job?
  • What would you like to know about the job you are interviewing for?
  • What would you like to know about the company?

With the right preparation, qualified candidates can gain the advantage. JillXan Donnelly, President of The Career Exposure Network™, "Practice, practice, practice. Many questions, such as those inquiring about your experience and qualifications, should be expected. By creating the right storyline to anticipated questions, your delivery will sound natural and confident. Remember, if you are qualified, the interview is where you can win or lose the game."
