What questions will you get asked in your job interview?

  1. Why do you want this job?
  2. Why do you want to work for us?
  3. What weakness do you have?
  4. What experience do you have working with diversity?
  5. How do you handle conflict in a team?

These are general job interview questions ones, variations of which are common to many jobs.

Other job interview questions will be determined by the job description and the essential and desireable criteria.

One of the best ways to work out what questions you will get asked is to look at the job description and do an analysis of the key responsibilities of the role that you are applying for and any essential and desirable criteria they give you. Then imagine that they are going to ask a question specifically around each of these key aspects.

For example, if it says “Must have good communication skills” or “Needs to be able to work well in a team” you can expect to get asked a question about team work and your communication skills.

If the job description says that a key role of the job is ”Liaising with clients and site visits” then you can expect a question about your ability to build relationships with and look after clients etc.
