Common Job Interview Questions in India

It is great to get a call back from a prospective job. However, the actual effort starts when you go through the front door and take the next step.

Considering that a job interview is the first time you will meet your potential employer, it is the ideal—if not the only—opportunity to make a great impression. Your interview responses also show who you are and provide valuable context for how you can contribute to the position, blend in with the team, and uphold the company's overall values.

Our database of typical interview queries and responses

1) Please introduce yourself.

A self-introduction is required after the introductory greetings. While you would believe that this is your chance to share your life's journey or discuss your preferred trip locales, it is not. Nobody is interested in knowing where you went to school or the specifics of your first job since the interviewer is familiar with your past in terms of your career and education thanks to your CV.

2) You wish to work here, why?

Most interviewers use this question to gauge how passionate and informed you are about the organization and the position you apply for.

You should offer concrete instances of the things that initially sparked your interest in the firm and the job description in response to this interview question. After that, build on your accomplishments, qualities, and skills before relating them to the position you're applying for.

3) What qualities do you have?

What the interviewer truly wants to know is what duties you excel at and how you will fit in as a new employee. What you may do is choose a few important strengths that are pertinent to the position, then provide instances from the past to back up those examples.

4) What aspects of your previous employment did you appreciate or dislike?

This question is an attempt by the interviewer to learn more about your main interests and whether or not the tasks or obligations of the job being offered would be to your liking or disliking. The advantages of your previous employment are rather simple to understand.

5) What are your plans for the future?

This inquiry may also be modified to ask "Where do you see yourself in the next five years?" or "How do you see yourself progressing within this organization?" Regardless of how the question is phrased, its goal is always the same: to elicit your ambition and the breadth of your career plans.
