    QN. What were your expectations for the job and to what extent were they met? –

    In many cases, interviewers will want to know what you expected from your last job when you were hired, so, be be prepared to answer the interview question "What were your expectations for the job and to what extent were they met?"
    There isn't a right or wrong answer to this question. The best way to respond is to discuss what you expected when you took the job and give examples of how the position worked out for you. If the job wasn't exactly what you expected, it's fine to mention that. However, you should focus on the job itself, not the company, your boss, or your co-workers (if they were a problem). Do be careful how you answer and don't focus too much on the negative. Instead, address the highlights of the job.
    When responding, be specific. Prepare some examples to share with the interviewer in advance. For example, if your job involved creating web applications using Cold Fusion, discuss the specific programs you developed and the responsibilities you were given. If you were provided training and opportunities for professional development to help you achieve your goals, mention that, as well.
    That I'm able to show my skills. I would want to be respected like the other individuals and grow more into the job and be professional
    I expected to find a culture that encourages creativity, initiative. I expected to be treated with respect, to be well-trained and to be compensating according to my performance. The company met and exceeded my expectations. After only 6 month, I was offered the opportunity to learn and develop new skills by participating to various in-house mentoring and training programs, and the compensation package (which at first sounded more like a bunch of percentages) did exceed my expectations. I was very happy with my job there. Of course, the layoff came out of the blue and my great work experience with that company had come to an end.

    QN. Why Are You Leaving Your Job?

    One of the questions that is typically asked in an interview is "Why are you leaving your job?" or "Why did you leave your job?" if you have already moved on. If you were fired from your job, use these answers to respond. If you left of your own accord, review these suggestions on how best to answer and tailor your response to meet your particular situation. Be direct and focus your interview answer on the future, especially if your leaving wasn't under the best of circumstances.
    Don't Badmouth Your Boss
    Regardless of why you left, don't speak badly about your previous employer. The interviewer may wonder if you will be bad-mouthing his company next time you're looking for work. I once interviewed a person who told me that her last employer was terrible. They didn't pay her enough, the hours were awful and she hated the job. That company happened to be my company's biggest, and most important, customer. And there is no way I would have hired someone who felt that way, justified or not, about our valuable client. So, she gave up any opportunity of getting the job as soon as she answered the "Why did you leave?" question.
    Prepare answers to typical job interview questions, like this one, in advance. Practice your responses so you sound positive, and clear, about your circumstances and your goals for the future.

    Sample answers to the interview question "Why did you leave your job?
    · I found myself bored with the work and looking for more challenges. I am an excellent employee and I didn't want my unhappiness to have any impact on the job I was doing for my employer.
    · There isn't room for growth with my current employer and I'm ready to move on to a new challenge.
    · I'm looking for a bigger challenge and to grow my career and I couldn't job hunt part time while working. It didn't seem ethical to use my former employer's time.
    · I was laid-off from my last position when our department was eliminated due to corporate restructuring.
    · I'm relocating to this area due to family circumstances and left my previous position in order to make the move.
    · I've decided that is not the direction I want to go in my career and my current employer has no opportunities in the direction I'd like to head.
    · After several years in my last position, I'm looking for an company where I can contribute and grow in a team-oriented environment.
    · I am interested in a new challenge and an opportunity to use my technical skills and experience in a different capacity than I have in the past.
    · I recently received my degree and I want to utilize my educational background in my next position.
    · I am interested in a job with more responsibility, and I am very ready for a new challenge.
    · I left my last position in order to spend more time with my family. Circumstances have changed and I'm more than ready for full-time employment again.
    · I am seeking a position with a stable company with room for growth and opportunity for advancement.
    · I was commuting to the city and spending a significant amount of time each day on travel. I would prefer to be closer to home.
    · To be honest, I wasn't considering a move, but, I saw this job posting and was intrigued by the position and the company. It sounds like an exciting opportunity and an ideal match with my qualifications.
    · This position seemed like an excellent match for my skills and experience and I am not able to fully utilize them in my present job.
    · The company was cutting back and, unfortunately, my job was one of those eliminated.

    I resigned from Hewitt to focus full-time on finding a job that is closer to home and one that will use my complement of skills and experience in a different capacity

    —Guest Vicky

    QN. What Motivates You?

    There isn't a right or wrong answer to interview questions about what motivates you. The interviewer is trying to understand the key to your being successful in the job he is interviewing for, and wants to make sure it's a good fit. Consider, in advance of interviewing, what actually does motivate you and come up with some specific examples to share during the interview.
    Your response will vary based on your background and experiences, but, you will want to share your enthusiasm and what you like(d) best about your job. Here are some examples:
    · I was responsible for several projects where I directed development teams and implemented repeatable processes. The teams achieved 100% on-time delivery of software products. I was motivated both by the challenge of finishing the projects ahead of schedule and by managing the teams that achieved our goals.
    · I've always been motivated by the desire to do a good job at whatever position I'm in. I want to excel and to be successful in my job, both for my own personal satisfaction and for my employer.
    · I have always wanted to ensure that my company's clients get the best customer service I can provide. I've always felt that it's important, both to me personally, and for the company and the clients, to provide a positive customer experience.
    · I have spent my career in sales, typically in commission-based positions, and compensation has always been a strong factor in motivating me to be the top salesperson at my prior employers.

    QN. How Do You Handle Stress/Pressure?
    A typical interview question, asked to get a sense of how you handle on-the-job stress, is "How do you handle pressure?" Examples of good responses include:
    · Stress is very important to me. With stress, I do the best possible job. The appropriate way to deal with stress is to make sure I have the correct balance between good stress and bad stress. I need good stress to stay motivated and productive.
    · I react to situations, rather than to stress. That way, the situation is handled and doesn't become stressful.
    · I actually work better under pressure and I've found that I enjoy working in a challenging environment.
    · From a personal perspective, I manage stress by visiting the gym every evening. It's a great stress reducer.
    · Prioritizing my responsibilities so I have a clear idea of what needs to be done when, has helped me effectively manage pressure on the job.
    · If the people I am managing are contributing to my stress level, I discuss options for better handling difficult situations with them.
    It's a good idea to give examples of how you have handled stress to your interviewer. That way, they get a clear picture how well you can work in stressful situations.
    QN. Your Responsibilities
    When you are asked questions related to your current or previous positions, it's important to be specific and to be positive about what you did in your previous position(s).
    The best way to respond is to describe your responsibilities in detail and to connect them to the job you are interviewing for. Try to tie your responsibilities in with those listed in the job description for the new position. That way, the employer will see that you have the qualifications necessary to do the job. Focus most on your responsibilities that are directly related to the new job's requirements.
    It's also important to be honest. Don't embellish your job, because you don't know who the hiring manager will be checking with when they check your references.
    QN. How Did You Handle Challenges?
    When asked the job interview question "How did you handle a challenge?" be sure to include specific examples of how you handled a particular difficult situation. Discuss how you researched the issue and contributed to finding a solution. Examples of good responses include:
    · During a difficult financial period, I was able to satisfactorily negotiate repayment schedules with multiple vendors.
    · When the software development of our new product stalled, I coordinated the team which managed to get the schedule back on track. We were able to successfully troubleshoot the issues and solve the problems, within a very short period of time.
    · A long-term client was about to take their business to a competitor. I met with the customer and was able to change how we handled the account on a day-to-day basis, in order to keep the business.

    QN. How Many Hours Do You Work?
    Be careful before you answer questions about how many hours a week you work. You don't want to be construed as a slacker or as someone who works too many hours. At some companies, the norm is a 40 hour week and everyone goes home on time. At others, everyone might work 50 or 60 hours a week.
    However, working a lot of hours isn't necessarily a good thing - it could mean you're not productive enough to get the job done in a reasonable amount of time.
    So, unless you're sure about the company culture and expectations, the safest answer is not to mention a certain number of hours. Rather, mention that you work as much as necessary to get the job don
    QN. What Has Been The Greatest Disappointment In Your Life?
    Your response to the question "What has been the greatest disappointment in your life?" will help the interviewer determine know how easily you are discouraged.
    Best Answer
    If possible, tell about a personal disappointment i.e. the early death of a parent, child, or school friend. Believe it or not, it is okay to have not had a "greatest" disappointment.
    QN. When Was The Last Time You Were Angry? What Happened?
    When the interviewer asks "When Was The Last Time You Were Angry? What Happened?" he or she wants to know if you lose control. The real meaning of the word "angry", to an interviewer, is loss of control and it's important to know how you handle situations when you're angry.
    Best Answer
    Anger to me means loss of control. I do not lose control. When I get stressed, I step back, take a deep breath, thoughtfully think through the situation and then begin to formulate a plan of action.
    QN. What is Your Greatest Weakness?
    When you're asked what your greatest weakness is, try to turn a negative into a positive. For example, a sense of urgency to get projects completed or wanting to triple-check every item in a spreadsheet can be turned into a strength i.e. you are a candidate who will make sure that the project is done on time and your work will be close to perfect.
    Note that the term "weakness" isn't used in the sample answers - you always want to focus on the positive when interviewing.
    Sample Answers
    · When I'm working on a project, I don't want just to meet deadlines. Rather, I prefer to complete the project well ahead of schedule.
    · Being organized wasn't my strongest point, but I implemented a time management system that really helped my organization skills.
    · I like to make sure that my work is perfect, so I tend to perhaps spend a little too much time checking it. However, I've come to a good balance by setting up a system to ensure everything is done correctly the first time.
    · I used to wait until the last minute to set appointments for the coming week, but I realized that scheduling in advance makes much more sense.
    Greatest Weakness
    I don't have any real experience in the health care field, but I am willing and eager to learn.

    —Guest sharon

    Confidence in Myself

    Greatest weakness
    It used to have an inability to accept constructive criticism, but as I was taking courses at college in human resource management, I learned a lot about being a better employee and what was expected of me. I really had to work on it, but I'm a much better person for it.

    —jasonhenley

    Being Honest?
    I hate working. I only do it for the money and I only pretend to give a darn. Usually everyone hates me because I'm more important than everyone else. This goes on until I get fired. I probably won't do anything about it. I already hate this job.

    —Guest guy

    My Temper
    More frequently I have been befallen, getting too angered so fast especially with my girlfriend and losing control. But of recent, I decided to take my short temper to myself, adopting the thank you, sorry, please forgive strategy... nice to say I've coped well now. One thing is that happiness does mean absence of misunderstanding.

    I'm Too Sensitive
    I'm very sensitive to things that people tell me. I always try to understand other people, to understand their own culture, their beliefs and values, finally, their problems. However, when a person is neglectful to my beliefs, that makes me really sad. I can be frustrated the whole day, asking myself, what I've done wrong, and blaming myself.

    —Guest Anne

    —Guest ah

    What Employers Look For
    Turning a negative into a positive has become cliche and monotonous for this question. We value an honest answer, where the potential employee tells us of an actual weakness, and how they are working to improve in that area. An answer which is honest and different from the typical "I'm TOO detailed," or "I'm a perfectionist" will really catch an employer's eye.

    —Guest Ryan - Employer

    My Family First
    As a mother, I tend to put my children and husband's needs before my own. It sometimes carries over to my job. I put the client's or my boss's needs in front of my own. It often ends up with me tired but fulfilled, that I was able to help someone get what they deserve.


    QN. What Are You Passionate About?
    When you're asked what you're passionate about during a job interview it's a good opportunity to share what is important in your life. It's also an opportunity to show your dedication and what's important to you.
    Your response doesn't need to be work focused, but do be sure that what you share isn't something that could potential cut in to your working hours.
    For example, you don't want to say that you're a mountain climber with the goal of climbing Mountain Everest or that you're getting ready for the Tour de France or looking to spend the winter skiing in Aspen.
    Sample Answers: What Are You Passionate About?
    · One of my greatest passions is helping others. When I was younger, I've enjoyed helping mom with household repairs. As I grew older, that habit grew and I desired to help others as well. I like helping people find solutions that meet their specific needs.
    · I'm passionate about painting. I take an evening art class once a week and try to find time each weekend to paint. Painting is a good way for me to relax and even though I don't have much talent, I do it enjoy it.
    · I lost my father to pancreatic cancer and ever since then, I have spent time volunteering to help raise awareness and funding for cancer research. I volunteer for PanCan, the advocacy group, and I'm part of their volunteer network. One of the things I'm passionate is to assist in finding a cure, however I can.
    · I'm passionate about making a difference. When I'm involved with a project at work I want to do my best to achieve success. I feel the same way about what I do in my personal life.

    —Guest pruby

    What are you Passionate About
    I've discovered that difficult situations in life never cease. It was once told to me that humans are constantly in a state where we are either getting ready to enter a problem, are in a problem, or just have solved our problem. I enjoy helping other people solve their problems. My passion stems from my own experiences and my ability and willingness to share those experiences and help others in any way I can who find themselves in similar circumstances. Thus, my passion is a never ending quest of aiding others in solving problems through my own life's experiences.

    —Guest chris martinez

    Everything
    I'm passionate about everything in the way most people are only passionate about their 'pet' subjects. This is both an advantage and a downfall at times: it means I give 110% to everything I do, whether it's watching paint dry, stuffing envelopes, writing an article or running a company; at the same time, it means my life is very full. But there's nothing wrong with busy ;)

    —Guest Mary Hayes


    QN. How Many Hours Do You Work
    Be careful before you answer questions about how many hours a week you work. You don't want to be construed as a slacker or as someone who works too many hours. At some companies, the norm is a 40 hour week and everyone goes home on time. At others, everyone might work 50 or 60 hours a week.
    However, working a lot of hours isn't necessarily a good thing - it could mean you're not productive enough to get the job done in a reasonable amount of time.
    So, unless you're sure about the company culture and expectations, the safest answer is not to mention a certain number of hours. Rather, mention that you work as much as necessary to get the job done.
    QN. What is your salary expectation?
    Before you start talking pay (and salary negotiations) with a prospective employer, you need to find out how much the job (and you) are worth. You will need to take the time to research salaries, so, you are prepared to get what you're worth and a job offer that's realistic and reasonable.
    Salary Negotiations
    Once you know what you should be earning, how do you go about getting it? Start by being very patient. When interviewing for a new position, do your best not to bring up compensation until the employer makes you an offer. If you're asked what your salary requirements are, say that they are open based upon the position and the overall compensation package. Or tell the employer you'd like to know more about the responsibilities and the challenges of the job prior to discussing salary. Another option is to give the employer a salary range based upon the salary research you've done up front. Once you've received the offer you don't need to accept (or reject) it right away. A simple "I need to think it over" can get you an increase in the original offer.
    And if you're ambivalent about the position a "no" can bring you a better offer too. I turned down a position I knew I didn't want, regardless of salary, and received three follow-up phone calls upping the compensation package. Be careful though, if you do definitely need that new job there's a risk that the employer may accept your declining the position and move on to the next candidate.
    Negotiating a Raise
    If you are currently employed and want a raise, start by being prepared. Gather your salary survey information, recent performance appraisals that document the job you're doing, and any other relevant information. Be aware of company policy regarding compensation. Some employers are limited by budget constraints and can only give raises at certain times of the year, regardless of the circumstances. Have a clear idea of what you want. Determine the salary range you're looking for and justification for the increase and have both ready to review with your supervisor. Be flexible. Would you consider an extra couple of weeks vacation instead of a raise? I know someone who's regularly taken time-off instead of money and now has six vacation weeks a year... Then, ask your supervisor for a meeting to discuss salary. Present your request, supported by documentation, calmly and rationally. Don't ask for an immediate answer. Your boss is mostly likely going to have to discuss it with Human Resources and/or other company managers.
    Despite your best efforts, there may simply not be enough money in the budget to increase your salary or compensation package offer. The company may also not want to create inequities by paying one person more than others in a similar position. In that case, you can at least know you tried. Plus, if this is a job you really think that you're going to love, consider whether the company culture, the benefits, and the job itself are worth it - regardless of the salary.


    QN. Tell me about yourself?
    You walk into the interview room, shake hands with your interviewer and sit down with your best interviewing smile on. Guess what their first question is? "Tell me about yourself."
    Do you "wing it" and actually tell all manner of things about yourself? Will you spend the next 5 minutes rambling on about what an easy-going, loyal, dedicated, hard working employee you've been? If this is the case, you stand a good chance of having bored your interviewer to death thus creating a negative first impression.
    Because it's such a common interview question, it's strange that more candidates don't spend the time to prepare for exactly how to answer it. Perhaps because the question seems so disarming and informal, we drop our guard and shift into ramble mode. Resist all temptation to do so.
    Your interviewer is not looking for a 10-minute dissertation here. Instead, offer a razor sharp sentence or two that sets the stage for further discussion and sets you apart from your competitors.
    Your Unique Selling Proposition (USP)
    Give them "your synopsis about you" answer, specifically your Unique Selling Proposition. Known as a personal branding or a value-added statement, the USP is a succinct, one-sentence description of who you are, your biggest strength and the major benefit that a company will derive from this strength. Here is an example of a Unique Selling Proposition: "I'm a seasoned Retail Manager strong in developing training programs and loss prevention techniques that have resulted in revenue savings of over $2.3Million for (employer's name) during the past 11 years."
    What a difference you've made with this statement. Your interviewer is now sitting forward in her chair giving you her full attention. At this point, you might add the following sentence: "I'd like to discuss how I might be able to do something like that for you." The ball is now back in her court and you have the beginnings of a real discussion and not an interrogation process.
    Be Specific
    The key is that you must lead with your strongest benefit to the employer. Be specific and don't wander about with some laundry list of skills or talents. Be sure to put a monetary value on your work if at all possible and be ready with details when you're called upon. Give an estimated value to the $$ you've either helped to make or save for your employer.
    Be Prepared
    When you walk into an interview, remember to always expect the "tell me about yourself" question. Prepare ahead of time by developing your own personal branding statement that clearly tells who you are, your major strength and the clear benefit that your employer received. The advantages of this approach are that you'll quickly gain their attention and interest them in knowing more. You'll separate yourself from your competitors. You'll also have a higher chance of being positively remembered and hired.
    Nurse
    Tell me about yourself and why you have chose to work in a long term care as a new graduate nurse?
