Finding a job, passing the interview is not an easy task, but to do it all in English requires double efforts. Therefore, we suggest going straight to the point and consider today the main questions that you may encounter at the interview and useful words and expressions in order to make the right impression and hear the cherished “you’ve got the job”.
And the very first first question seems to be the easiest one:
However, already at this stage you can make a mistake. The main thing that you DO NOT need to do is to tell everything about yourself. When asking such a question, the employer wants to hear a brief description of who you are and why you are the very suitable candidate for this position.
Talking about yourself, use these structures:
No time to be shy! The best answer is to select 3-4 key traits that best describe you as a professional. Be confident and always give examples.
You may find the following examples useful:
Everyone has weaknesses and you don’t need to try to show yourself as ideal - nobody will believe you anyway =)
Answering such a question, you can go in two ways:
I know the people from my team think I’m too demanding. I sometimes tend to drive them pretty hard but I’ve started reading on the subject some time ago and I’m getting much better at managing them by setting objectives.
And a few phrases that you can use to describe your weaknesses:
Whatever your reasons are, don't talk negatively about them. It will not be very correct to focus on the financial issue, something like “I need more money”. It’s better to focus on the fact that you are looking for new opportunities, interesting tasks, experience and a change of surrounding.
Reasons for leaving may be:
Such a question allows a potential employer to check your knowledge in this professional field and understand if you fit their company.
Again, no time to be modest. Such a question requires a detailed answer about your previous experience and responsibilities that you used to performed.
If there is no experience in the proposed field, but there is a desire to learn, this is also worth mentioning:
I’ve never worked in ... before, but in my previous job I’ve learned a lot about ... and I’m confident I’ll be quick to learn the ropes of your industry.
Yes, this question can confuse anyone. If you have not studied salary options and don’t know exactly what you can count on, try not to talk about numbers right away. The best way out is to say that your expectations are directly related to the responsibility and tasks that you assume.
