1. Introduction: One of the troubling problems for job seekers, which is inevitable is job interviews, either searching for a job in a new organization or opening a job within the same organization. When you have the interviewees were so excited on the day of the interview that the outcome of the job interview turned out to be tragic. So being prepared to deal with questions can help you feel relieved. This course provides an answer to the questions that job seekers often face when interviewing for a job, which may seem difficult and seem easy to answer. Or what matters is how well prepared you are and how you can respond and control your emotions and excitement that will allow you to control your work in progress at your own pace. From the experience I have served as the interview committee many times. So I learned how to ask questions and observe and weight candidates in terms of personality, attitude, and emotional control. Hopefully, once you have studied this course, you will be able to prepare to answer questions very well. Good luck and success. See you in class. 2. How to Answer to "Tell Me About Yourself" Question: For question, tell me about yourself. It is considered one in a tough world of job interviewing, and it is one you will be asked for most circumstance, usually, normally at the very beginning of the interview, I would like to recommend and stress that the key and important tweak to answer in this critical question is to anticipate the question before you interview and the crab pot for installing the answers in advance and take time we did. And while you may wonder about tell me about yourself instruction, you have got a huge opportunity to kick the meeting of stone if you get it right. Research shows that the average person's attention span caps out at 5 min. Ideally, to tell me about yourself, explanation should be between 90 s and 2.5 min long. Let's begin. There are three quick tips that will help you respond to the opener and the question. Tip number one, goal with dishes steps, make sure you answer is succinct, honest, and engaging. This is not the time to share in your entire life and work story. Do not speak out line by line through you resume the interview or the committee is looking for an answer that provides direct evidence that you would qualify for the role. And they also want to see how well you do with an opening and unstructured question. Number two, try using the job description to prepare before the interview day, Grab and study the job description and highlight to focus a few of the most prominent required skills. Skills that you possess. Are they looking for histone problem-solver? Do they need someone who is comfortable presenting to niche groups are great at dealing with the most difficult customers. Pick a couple. And the last thing can imagine how you can describe yourself as a person while also showcasing your strings in those very things that the employer is seeking. People as the committee love a good story and stories and remembered up to 22 times more than facts alone. So don't be afraid to live in some personality and human interests is you answer, just remember, tell you about my story back to the job. Make it succinct, be truthful. Your closing comment is also a great time to tie in the company's mission statement and how it aligns with your personal mission statement. In causing made sure that you practice your answers so that you feel comfortable and natural. You don't want to sound as a robot. You also want to make sure that you are concise. Because in answering this question is to give just enough information to spark the interest in learning more and engage with you. 3. How to Answer to "Why Are You Interested in Our Company?": There are many reasons that group interviewer, So the committee might ask, why are you interested in our company? And this really can be more difficult than you think. You may respond about how much you enjoy their product or service, or what they're really asking is how you see yourself contributing to the position. To best determine the meaning of this question, Let's rebuild the primary reasons for asking it. First. They may be focused on your true interests in the company. They want to have someone who is committed to the profession, product or service, and not just seeking a new job. A second reason is that they want to know you understand the position and how you plan on contributing to it. Finally, they want to know your long-term career goals and how these position fits. This helps them to determine how non-numeric possibly stay in position. Since you don't know the motivation behind the question, you need to address each reason in a concise manner. You can frame it in any order. And I suggest starting with the area that truly excites you. Let's take the example of applying for product design position with a company called connect 50. The first thing to do is research the company to their website, news releases and profiles. Are those currently in the position? And their supervisors is can we build it the company promotes for median signaling potential for you to grow in a position. In addition, it allows you to see what skills people in the current position are using. So you know what really matters for the job. You learn that connect 50, started in 2003, has since gone vertically to include the reagents for event promotions and corporate accounts. It's clear at several product design professionals have connect 50 have received promotions. And you also know they enjoy helping people to effective design techniques and use innovative approaches for doing so. With this information, you can frame the answer to why you are interested in this company in the following way. I am interested in Connect 50 because it will allow me to use my focus on innovative approaches to design and apply them to a growing company. My research, it was nice to see a company focused on expanding their offering to the corporate world and growing opportunities for its current staff. It is particularly exciting to see that many of you product design experts have been promoted for median. I'm looking forward to growing my expertise within connect 50 is a great opportunity to not only build my career, but to also help organisations maximise their brand. As you can see these answers, all three of the reasons that someone might ask this question in a concise answer. This answer would also fit for the following questions. What do you like about our precision? Why are you interested in this position? Or how did you hear about this position? It is important to show them in any of these that you are serious about the position and the company. 4. How to Answer to "Tell Me About Your Strengths" Question: Tell me about your strengths is often a comment and normal question from new or inexperienced or untrained interviewers. Equation for n. This way can confuse you as a candidate. And you may wonder why the interviewers even ask this. This might seem like an easy question, but it's really not. It's always a good practice to be prepared for a strength-based question. I want to help you come up with an effective answer to this question as you will encourage us rambling responses if you don't know how to focus your answer, what they are trying to discover is your core competencies for the job. And if you have a clearly realistic view of yourself, you should identify the core competencies by looking at the job description. The key to answering this effectively is to identify the traits that align with the job and prioritizing what you would focus on. Let's focus on the first three competencies visit to prioritize you answer because, you know, people will have prepared one. They can read the second one. Or the third one's probably going to be the truth. You need to be sure to come up and choose relevant, site-specific experience examples with evidence as to support your viewpoint of these strings, a group or train or experienced interviewers is going to ask this question in a variety of ways to get a more accurate view of what we bring to the job. A few examples might include your direct reports say about us and assistant manager, how would you pass? Describe the value. Let's discuss your resume or tell me about an accomplishment you are most proud of by identifying the employer's needs and developing examples of how you meet their need to prepare you for any question. Your preparation for your core competencies will always work for any of these questions. 5. How to Answer to "Tell Me About Your Weaknesses" Question: Now the classical question that they always ask in job interviews is tell me about weaknesses that you have or what is your greatest weakness? And everyone hates this question. But you know, you have got to answer it by using two useful tips. Tip number one. To be successful, you need to communicate an authentic story that shows that you are truly self-aware. It's okay that you don't come off as perfect. That's authentic, and that's really important for someone to trust you in the role that they're hiring for. Tip number two, don't select the weakness that disqualifies you from a job, choose something that is not necessarily related to it. So e.g. if you are applying for a project manager position, choose something that is more related to creativity, right? Choose a weakness that doesn't disqualify you from the job description of the things that would make someone successful in the row. Then tip number three, you should have a frequency strategy. It's okay to have a plan. Plans are important. So just in case you are the type of person that struggles with remembering product or service details. And you happen to also be that person that attracts them in their phone and are in a side note book. That's okay. Share that with most people. That will show that you are caught commitment to solving the problem and embracing it. You can speak out like this. So I have my weakness. Well, I like to get things finished. I don't like loose ends and so I can get a bit impatient. So I can get a bit impatient with other people who haven't kept their promises on project schedule. And if they haven't done their part of the job, unaware that and I'm working on being more diplomatic when I think someone in my team isn't pulling their weight. Finally, please don't mentioned stress. Remember, again, you should try not to mention stress-related. As the interviewers. They just want to know that you have a realistic view of yourself and can overcome any challenges that may present themselves in the future. 6. How to Answer to "Why Should We Hire You?": You should be confident and prepared for how to effectively answer the question, why should we hire you? And if you think about all the different ways that this can go, you want to make sure that you are set up for success. I recommend for you to answer to this question in three steps that you will do really well in answering this question. Step one, why do I qualify for this job? We prepare to pick three to five qualifications, parts of your experience that helps these interviewer. So this interview, I understand why you are fit for this job. Step to start to paint a picture and why you would do so well in this job, things that you will accomplish a competitive we differentiate you. Step three, in addition to why you qualify for this job being a part of a team. So why are you a cultural fit for this company? Remember, you are going to be part of a team. They want to make sure that you fit in. What do you know about their mission and their region, and how do they operate and why you would fit so well into that. Lastly, and I think it's a very underrated one and believed that how you say something is just as important as what you say. So as long as you or yourself are the best version of that self, I think you will do really well. 7. How to Answer to "Why Are You Leaving Your Current Job?": Hiring interviewers will often ask the classic question, why are you leaving your current job, fairs job or why you are seeking a position now? It is a test. Are you running away from something? Are you running towards something? They want to know that you are career focused and not just the job hopper. And they want to see that you have sound reasoning for your decision. And if it was a negative situation that you handle the wheel, there are many reasons a person may leave a position and there are many ways you can potentially answer this question. Stay positive and resist the temptation to disparate your current job or employer or your boss. You could say, well, my job is okay, but the future prospects are pretty limited and there is nothing else really happening are changing in the company. So I just can't see where I'm going to connect. Just one thing I want to say about that. You don't want to look at cbd is all about promotion and power and money. However, there might be times when talking about a negative situation is unavoidable, particularly if you quit or you were fired from a job. Remember, the interviewers are not your critic, but they are trying to get you if the situation was because you had a bad attitude or you were negligent in getting the work done, putting a positive spin on it and letting them know what you learn from a situation is important for training more in the light of what you want to get out that new next row. And relating that to the specific job you're interviewing for. A good strategy is to think about what was missing in your last position and focus on that as part of the new position. You could say, well, I have been doing it for a while now and I feel that my learning curve is leveling off. And I'm still learning a bit most days, but I don't feel and well-being as much as I could if I had more challenge job to get my effort into something like that, you really want something that you can really make a difference. I have actually talked about this with my boss and you should confirm that this is pretty much the situation and that shows honesty and loyalty. The ideal situation is that you are leaving your current company for a better opportunity with them. The bottom line is to focus on your career growth and the value you bring to the new organization while de-emphasizing the negative aspects. Practicing a well composed respond to maybe even worst situation seem reasonable. 8. How to Answer to "Where Do You See Yourself in Three Years?': When it is time to answer the where do you see yourself in three years? So where do you want to be in three years time interview question. It is so cliche, but we need an answer. I have seen a lot of people bought down and struggle with answering this question. And that is completely natural because some of us don't even know what we're doing tomorrow, let alone in the next few years. But the key that you want to remember to answering this question successfully is to focus on what you can give to the employers and the roll. Please don't answer the way new job because I think that's too cheeky. It may upset the interviewers. I think the best answer is something else within the company to build up my skills, to make me able to contribute even more to the organization. I would be happy to be doing the same job in three years time or maybe something else within the company, you know, because I would like to get a broad knowledge of several different areas within the company. I think multi-skilled people are the most useful. In the end, you can explain and clarify and make it to three specific tips. The first tip is to break your answer down into one new swaps. This helps the interviewer to visualize and see exactly what you are describing. What do you plan to do in the first year and how do you plan to take it up a notch in the next two to three years after that. The second tip is to confirm that you will focus on the high-level and tensions that you have for the role and the value that you plan to deliver for each year to come. And the last tip is to stay very away from talking about job titles that you want to get in the next two to three or five years because that can come off as overly presumptuous. Using these tips, you will be able to answer this. Where do you see yourself in the next few years, interview questions successfully. 9. How to Answer to "What Are Your Salary Expectations?": What are your salary expectations? This is a question you will get out too often. I have been a part in hiring many people in my career. And I'm going to walk you through a few tips so that you can mask to this question. The first step, don't give a specific number. It's very tempting to give a number. Instead, you want to provide a range. You don't want a low bar because that's going to obviously work against you. At the same token, if you go too high, you may freeze yourself out of this opportunity. The second, come in and do some neutral research and read that research, you want to come in and share that range. Why information such as this role, based on research I have done. By putting that range on the table. It doesn't magic the employer. Then we have to base their compensation at least on those numbers because you have established what the competitive benchmarks are. Now, the next thing I want to advise you on his hand, you actually get those ranges. There are multiple places to go on the Internet. And last but not least, don't forget to bring up signing bonuses. That's often a way to bridge the gap at the end of a negotiation. It, you follow these three tips. You are going to be well on your way to mastering the question, where are your salary expectations?
