General Questions

Some sample behavioral general interview questions and answers have been provided here. These questions are provided to help the candidate reply to general questions.

  1. Brief us about yourself.

    Ans: This is usually an opening to most of the interviews. This question can put you in a fix so be careful. Most candidates lose the track while answering this question. Don’t narrate your life story. Take this as an opportunity to advertise yourself. Give a decisive answer. You must converse in a way that your expertise and curiosity would relate to the post in question.

    Brief about your upbringing and education, how you developed a liking for a certain field and decided to make a career out of it. Describe the educational path you chose, to develop your skills for this profession and the experience you have to enrich those skills.

    This question is generally asked in all the interviews, so it is better that you are well prepared to answer it. Have a 'sell-yourself' commercial ready and you will eventually succeed.

  2. How is your education and experience related to this job?

    Ans: Relating your education with the job applied for is very important, as it shows that you are focused since the days of your formal education. Illustrate how you took up some degree or diploma course specifically to pursue this career. If you had taken up some internship to gain industrial experience, describe that.

    Make sure you link all your experience to the job and emphasize how you never lost track. For example if it is a writing job and your resume shows that you have experience in technical support, elaborate how it has enhanced your researching skills which are so important for writing. Relate every experience as a way of exploring and improving your skills for the particular job.

  3. Describe your strengths and weaknesses.

    Ans: Describing your strengths is comparably easy as to describing your weaknesses. Just make sure that the qualities you are describing are parallel to the job you have applied for. Be prepared to answer a follow-up question on the strengths you describe. You should be able to elaborate how the strengths are helpful in making your job better.

    When you talk about the weaknesses, make it a point that you do not bring out any negatives. It should show how you have managed to change a weakness into a positive outcome. For example you can say that you were short on patience at a point of time but experience has taught you how important patience is when it comes to professional life.

    The important thing is, don't boast about your strengths and discuss your weaknesses in a way that it reflects that you have overcome it.

  4. How is your general work week?

    Ans: The interviewer wants to check how involved the applicant is in the routine work tasks. Think about the job profile the interview is for, before you reply to this question. Relate your experience with the job opening. If you are able to make correlation between the job and your experience you will make the mark.

    Be sure that you focus on the work details and nothing else. Don’t tell how you browse through your social networking accounts or chat with friends during office hours. Show how well organized you are when it comes to work.

    A good answer would be, “The first thing I do after returning from a weekend or vacation is check my answering machine and e-mails. Then I look ahead at the activities to be done at work and set the priorities and schedules accordingly”. Let your answer demonstrate the professionalism with which you go about your job.

  5. What compensation are you expecting?

    Ans: You need to look for the industry standards, about the salary the position usually gets. Also rate yourself for the job depending on your experience and how you have fared in the interview. This will prepare you to get the salary you deserve.

    It is best to be patient and let the interviewer bring up the discussion of compensation. Quote a figure as per your research, if possible in a range and wait for the offer.

    If you are not content with it, you can employ delay tactics in giving consent and the company may come up with a better offer. If you are not too eager about the position or have other offers in hand, you can simply decline the offer. Sometimes denying can lead to a better offer.

    Given above are general interview questions to evaluate the applicant. The answers are a guideline for job seekers.
