Remember that the key to all successful interviewing is to match your qualifications to what the interviewer is looking for 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) 4. 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. 5.

I like to work with a sense of urgency and everyone is not always on the same wavelength.

7. Why should I hire you? 8. Where do you see yourself five years from now? Example: I am definitely interested in making a long-term commitment to my next position. Judging by what youve told me about this position, its exactly what Im looking for and what I am very well qualified to do. In terms of my future career path, Im confident that if I do my work with excellence, opportunities will inevitable open up for me. Its always been that way in my career, and Im confident Ill have similar opportunities here. 9. Describe your ideal company, location and job The only right answer is to describe what this company is offering, being sure to make your answer believable with specific reasons, stated with sincerity, why each quality represented by this opportunity is attractive to you. 10. What are your career options right now? Prepare for this question by thinking of how you can position yourself as a desired commodity. If you are still working, describe the possibilities at your present firm and why, though youre greatly appreciated there, youre looking for something more (challenge, money, responsibility, etc.). Also mention that youre seriously exploring opportunities with one or two other firms. 11. What good books have you read lately? 1. Consider it part of the work of your job search to read up on a few of these leading books. 2. But make sure they are quality books that reflect favorably upon you, nothing that could even remotely be considered superficial. Finally, add a recently published bestselling work of fiction by a world-class author and youll pass this question with flying colors. 12. Tell me about a situation when your work was criticized ? 13. What are your outside interests ?

14. What are your outside interests ? Try to gauge how this companys culture would look upon your favorite outside activities and be guided accordingly. But above all, remember that your employer is hiring your for what you can do for him, not your family, yourself or outside organizations, no matter how admirable those activities may be. 15. You greatly admire a company that hires and promotes on merit alone and you couldnt agree more with that philosophy. The age (gender, race, etc.) of the person you report to would certainly make no difference to you. 16. How could you have improved your career progress ? 17. What would you do if a fellow executive on your own corporate level wasnt pulling his/her weightand this was hurting your department? Good human relations would call for me to go directly to the person and explain the situation, to try to enlist his help in a constructive, positive solution. If I sensed resistance, I would be as persuasive as I know how to explain the benefits we can all gain from working together, and the problems we, the company and our customers will experience if we dont. 18. What do you worry about ? Redefine the word worry so that it does not reflect negatively on you. Example: I wouldnt call it worry, but I am a strongly goal-oriented person. So I keep turning over in my mind anything that seems to be keeping me from achieving those goals, until I find a solution. Thats part of my tenacity, I suppose. 19. How do you feel about working nights and weekends ? I love my work and do it exceptionally well. I think the results speak for themselves, especially in (mention your two or three qualifications of greater interest to the employer. Remember, this is what he wants most, not a workaholic with weak credentials). Not only would I bring these qualities, but Ive built my whole career on working not just hard, but smart. I think youll find me one of the most productive people here.

20. Would you lie for the company Try to avoid choosing between two values, giving a positive statement which covers all bases instead. Example: I would never do anything to hurt the company.. 21. Can you work under pressure ? What makes you angry ? Who has inspired you in your life and why?
