#Interview Skills – Answering tricky interview questions

 

 

  1. What are your strengths and weaknesses?

TIP: This is a chance to really sell yourself! Think about your strengths more than weaknesses, and even try to turn whatever weakness you feel you have into a positive!

 

  1. Why do you think you will be successful in this job?

TIP: This is the employer asking what you can bring to the company/organisation – how will you fit in? Emphasise the skills you have and how these relate to those in the job criteria!

 

  1. Have you ever had a bad experience with an employer?

TIP: Try not to make this a hugely negative anecdote – the employer wants to know how you cope under pressure, are you resilient? If you’ve never experienced this, what might you do?

 

  1. Give an example of a time when you’ve handled a major crisis.

TIP: This is a cue for you to give a really clear example, outline a scenario and really emphasise the skills you used! This is the employer trying to see how you might use your initiative so be specific in your example!

 

  1. Where do you expect to be in five years’ time?

TIP: This can be a hard question for anyone, just make sure you tailor this to the job if you can. You need to sound as if your career goals align with the values and ethos of the organisation/company! Perhaps focus on professional development.

 

  1. What motivates you?

TIP: This is a broad question that can be hard to answer. Again, it’s about relating your motivations to that of the job itself so you can show how well suited you are! But it’s also an opportunity to show your personality!

 

  1. How do you manage your time and prioritise tasks?

TIP: This is asking for specific examples of experiences you’ve had where you’ve had to use these skills. What specific methods did you use? What was the outcome? Were you effective?

 

  1. Give an example of a time when you showed initiative.

TIP: Another chance to give a really specific, clear example using your own experience! The employer can’t just take your word for it so give them some context and a great example they can’t ignore!

 

  1. Give an example of your lateral thinking.

TIP: This is one of those questions that can scare anyone but don’t be put off by the jargon! It’s just about exploring the question as you go. ‘Lateral thinking’ is about using creative approaches so give a clear example of an experience you’ve had where you needed to look at a situation in a different light and where you came up with a creative solution!
