Tips for Common Interview Questions and their Smart Solution?
1) Do you have patience to listen to other’s problems?
Ans. Sayyam + Samajdaari = Smartness. Endurance is the crowning quality, And patience all the passion of great hearts. The answer should be a straight Yes. But how do you justify it. Give an example from your past experience (personal or professional) wherever possible.
2) Why do you want to join this company ?
Ans. Your answer in reality may be different. For instance, you want more money which you replace with better prospects. The interviewer understands that the reason is apparently fake. Then why does he consider you ? The reason is simple. Even he/she wants you as your background is reflected on your CV
3) How do you face furious people ?
Ans. Be it a people facing job or not, you are bound to come across angry people. What do you do then? Anger is a state of mind where mind is out of state. For every minute you are angry, you loose 60 seconds of happiness. Who wants unhappy people? No one as sad people sad work, sad work sad results, sad results sad people. It is a viscous circle.
4) What is the nature of the job you are expecting ?
Ans. Be careful. By this time the interviewer knows what kind of person you are. Now if you say you are a happy go lucky character and you love people facing job and this is not in sync with the previous question then you loose points. Your personality and job role has to be in sync. There is no second thought to this
5) Tell me something about yourself.
Ans. Wondering why is this fifth question instead of first. It is to know whether your answer is scripted or not. Some oversmart candidates have a script rehearsed properly. But the objective of the interviewer is to catch the words. Words are wind. Look before you leap. Be extremely careful.
6) What do you know about the industry ?
Ans. The industry knowledge shows your level of interest in the job. Agreed it is not directly relevant to your job but what happens on the road affects the driver and here you are the driver. On a senior level, you are expected to have done a SWOT about the industry you operate in. This is because you may not know much about the company but you are expected to know about the industry.
