Before you get your first paycheck at any job, you have to land an interview - and rock it. Teaming up with a friend or family member to practice interviewing is always a suggested idea.  Another great practice is learning as much as you can about the job and company. Here are a list of common interview questions to better prepare yourself. 

  • Tell me about yourself. 
  • How did you hear about this job?
  • What do you know about our company?
  • What are your strengths?
  • What are your weaknesses?
  • Why should you get this job?
  • Where do you see yourself in x amount of years?
  • Why do you want to work for us?
  • What can you expect from you in the first month of working for us? The first three months? The first six?
  • Why are you leaving your current position? 
  • Tell me about a time you were faced with a work conflict. How did you handle it?
  • Tell me about the most difficult work decision (or non-work decision) you’ve had in the last six months. How did you handle it?
  • Have you ever disagreed with a major company decision in a past role? What did you do?
  • Do you prefer to work independently or in a team?
  • How do you work with others?
  • How do you deal with disagreeable co-workers?
  • What is your biggest professional achievement?
  • What is your personal dream job?

  • If applicable, why is there a gap in between jobs on your resume? 
  • If applicable, why are you applying for a job in a different career field?
  • How do you deal with stressful situations?
  • Based on your research for on our company, what do you think we could be doing better?
  • What was your salary at your last job?

*Typically, most interviews end with this question. The best approach is to be ready to ask some questions. Here is a short list of common questions to ask your interviewer.

  • What is the current company atmosphere like?
  • What is a typical day like in this office?
  • What would be the first challenges this role would face?
  • How long have you worked here?
  • What is your favorite part of working here?
  • What is the key to success for this role? 
  • Where do you see this role going?
  • Why is this position open or why was it created?
  • How do people grow in this company?
  • Can you tell me something about the role that wasn’t included in the description? 

While you’ll never know exactly what a hiring manager has in store during an interview, getting ahead by learning the most common interview questions may help you land the job you want.
