Default Be-ware of the common ones!

No way can you foresee each n every question you might be asked in an interview but you can be smart by preparing sturdy, crisp responses to usually asked questions. Nearly all interviewers ask analogous questions to get acquainted with candidate's abilities & experience and evaluate his capability to do justice with the job.

Introduce yourself.
This is over and over again the first question in an interview. It's the most complicated one if you're not all set. Keep in mind, the interviewer does not want to hear about your hobbies. Its time for one-minute gist of your years of experience and s****s in the context to the job you are looking forward to get. Sell your professional self.

Why should we hire you?
Most people answer generally, so you need something substantial to stand out. Give genuine examples that demonstrate you as the best-suited for the position. Highlight your achievements and undertakings that are relevant to get the job.

Why do you want this job?
Use this occasion to demonstrate how much you know about the company and, most prominently, how you fit best. Concentrate on challenges in the job and organization to show your comprehensive knowledge. Spot out things you have done in past job to take care of the similar issues.

What are your weaknesses?
Answer this question to your benefit. "I would turn my weaknesses into strengths," For example, if my weakness is lack of tolerance I would counter it by saying; I have learned particular measures to make sure I remain composed and considerate." Don't pretend that you do not have a weakness.

Why did you quit your previous job?
Never evaluate your previous company, the boss, or colleagues. You should have a fine perceptive of the job you're applying to twist this question. You may say that, you really enjoyed various aspects of your previous job and spotlight on how this new job will give you the chance to contribute meticulously on areas that are essential for the current position.

Where would you be five years from today?
Don't get swayed away by your five-year plan. You are expected to speak about goals related to the job. This will reveal that you know the industry, the organization and you are looking forward to grow here.

Remember the interviewer is trying to find if you can play a positive role in the organization!
