Perfect Interview Questions & Answers

3 of the Toughest Job Interview Questions!

Answer interveiw questions

In just about every job interview ever conducted, there are 3 basic questions that you must answer well in order to get the job.

They might ask these questions with slightly different wording, but they are the same essential questions.

  • Tell me about yourself.
  • Why did you leave your last job?
  • Why do you want to join this company?

Each one of those questions is trying to poke at you to uncover any underlying issues that could cause a problem for this hiring manager if he hires you. Remember, you represent a risk for him or her, and they need to know if you’re going to be a good fit, or a problem.

These questions are all excellent opportunities to reassure the hiring manager and sell you for the job.

3 of the Toughest Job Interview Questions!

Tell me about yourself? – Some people think this is an icebreaker question because it’s one of the first things they ask you in the interview (and because in normal circumstances, it is an icebreaker question). So they answer it like they would in a social situation and say something like. That’s a mistake. It’s the wrong response because that’s not what this question is about.

When they say, “Tell me about yourself,” what they really want to know is “Tell me something that will matter to me as I consider you for this job.”

Why did you leave your last job? – It’s important that you don’t say anything negative about the company you were with because any negativity reflects very badly on you—but you still have to give them a reason why you’re no longer with that company. Your answer will depend on what happened, but there are ways you can talk about it to put a positive spin on it.

Why do you want to join this company? – Many hiring managers are suspicious that you don’t especially want a job working for them…you just want any job so you can collect a paycheck. This is another risk issue for them.

This question is another place where your research will reward you. Answer the question and give specific examples to back it up. Your answer should sound like, “I want to join this company because…” and then you need to list at least 3 reasons why.
