by | Apr 15, 2021 | 0 comments

What are your long-term career plans?

For this question, you may be asked about a specific time frame such as five or ten years. Where do you hope to be in that time? This question can also help you realise how you want to spend your professional life. Come up with some concrete goals you hope to accomplish, and tell the interviewers how their company will help you achieve those goals.

What made you leave your previous job?

An interview helps both job seekers and interviewers determine if people will work well in the company’s environment. Be honest and positive, and don’t throw former management under the bus even if it was their fault that you left.

Tell me about your strengths and weaknesses.

People get tripped up over this question, but it’s not meant to be tricky. Choose three examples of your strengths as an employee and two examples of areas where you need improvement. Don’t try to slip in a positive as a negative. For example, “I finish projects too quickly” is not a weakness. The goal of this question is to find out how insightful an employee is about his own performance, so answer honestly.
