Part 8

Pretend that you are sitting in front of a panel of Human Resources professionals to answer the following questions which most interviewers typically ask.

For example,

a) Tell me a little bit about you: This is a trick question – do not provide personal information regarding age, marital status, number of children, etc. Only discuss your educational goals and professional work experience.

b) What are some of your strengths? (Make sure to list at least three strengths or qualities or talents or skills and be specific)

c) Tell ONE of your weaknesses. Provide ONLY one. For example, you can say “I am a perfectionist, however, I always complete my work in a timely manner.” OR “Although some people may describe me as introverted, I possess strong listening skills.” Never say anything negative about yourself. This question is simply intended to see if you are humble and teachable and a team player.

d) Where do you see yourself in five years from today? The prospective employer wants to know whether you are a strategic thinker, planner, and problem solver. For example, you can discuss your either your short-term goals (6 months) or long-term goals (1 to 5 years) such as educational goals and career advancement opportunities. You can also mention that you welcome the opportunity to join the company. You can also say that you see yourself growing professionally as a team members with this organization.
