The most common questions asked during an interview include:
- Tell us about yourself.
- What’s your greatest weakness?
- Where do you wish to be in 5 years? 10 years?
You’ll also find two dozen more questions over at Inc.com’s article titled, “27 Most Common Job Interview Questions & Answers.”
The weird interview questions often don’t have a “right” answer, but merely test your thought process and problem-solving skills.
For example, you might be asked about what car you might be and why. Or, whether you’re a hunter or gatherer, and why?
Weird questions are generally open-ended, meaning they’ll require a detailed answer versus a quick yes or no.
Behavioral and situational interview questions are geared towards what you would do or have done under pressure or unique situations.
These questions provoke you to think of what challenges you’ve faced and what resulted from your response to such.
Example questions might include:
- Have you worked for a difficult boss and what did you do to resolve any personality conflicts that came up?
- What specific challenge have you faced in the past 12 months and how did you handle it?
Over the years, interviewing increasingly becomes more challenging as employers find new ways to flush out unfit job candidates.
