and I will tell you at some stage we can get a copy of these slides to help you during
your preparation, so don’t forget to stick around from beginning to end. Here we go. QUESTION NUMBER ONE: pretty much guaranteed
to be the first question in your interview – “Tell me about yourself?” and here’s
how to answer it, straight into it. “I am a hardworking, conscientious and loyal
person who genuinely wants to make a difference for my employer. Over the years I have gained plenty of skills
and experience that I believe are a great match for the job description. If I’m successful at interview today, I believe
you will be impressed with my work ethic, my commitment and my ability to learn things
quickly.” That’s a short sharp and punchy answer to
the interview question “Tell me about yourself?” that gets you off on the right foot during
your interview and will impress the panel. QUESTION NUMBER TWO – “Why do you want
this job?” Pretty much a guaranteed question during your
interview: “Why do you want this job?” OK, here’s the answer to this one. “During my research for this interview I
analyzed the job description and I instantly felt compatible with the role. I understand you’re looking for someone who
can learn quickly work under pressure, deliver excellent customer service and also work with
others to achieve your company goals. Having also researched your business online,
it strikes me you are a company who is forward-thinking and is innovative within the industry. For those reasons I very much want to work
for you within this particular role.” Another great answer that can be used for
any interview whatsoever. QUESTION NUMBER THREE – “Why do you want
to leave your current job?” So, if you are in a role and you’re going
to be leaving that to go and work for them, they’re going to want to know why do you want
to leave. Very important tip before we give you the
answer to this question. Make sure you are positive about your previous
employer. OK, so here’s the answer for you: “For the
simple reason, I feel it is time for a change. My employer has been fantastic, and I very
much enjoyed working for them but I feel I have so much more to offer and I’ve been attracted
to your company since first seeing in the job advert. I will leave my employer on great terms and
I will miss the team, but I am looking forward positively to a new and fresh challenge where
my skills and experiences can be fully utilized.” Great answer! It’s a safe response, OK. It doesn’t put you in any danger whatsoever
and they will look at you positively. If you told me that, I would think great things
about you because you’ve got a positive attitude about your previous employer OK, QUESTION
NUMBER FOUR – “Why should we hire you?” So, if you think about it at the interview
they’re going to be interviewing lots of people. They are going to want to know why should
we hire you over the other people. So, here’s my answer for you that you can
use. “I believe you should hire me for three
specific reasons. Firstly, I have cross checked my skills and
experience with the job description and they match perfectly. This means I can jump straight into the role
and make a positive impact quickly. Secondly, I take my work responsibilities
seriously and I will not sit back and just do the job. Instead I will look to excel in the role and
help your company to grow. And finally, I have a positive and enthusiastic
personality that I feel will be a benefit to your organization.” So that’s a great answer; you’re giving them
three specific reasons. You’re not just giving one, you’re giving
three. You say that your skills and experience cross
match the job description which is attractive to any employer. You are also saying that you take your work
responsibilities seriously and you are going to excel in the role, and you are also saying
as a person you are enthusiastic and positive in nature, which any employer would want. Okay, moving on to question number five. Don’t forget you LIKE this video please; do
give it a thumbs up and don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE. Thank you. QUESTION 5 – “What are your strengths?” So, what are you good at? Here we go. “In particular I have five key strengths. These are having an ability to work hard to
complete a task even when under pressure. A loyal attitude and approach to work, which
means I will never let you down. The ability to even work alone unsupervised,
and also as part of a team, which means I have a flexible approach to work. I am also someone who can adapt to change,
and I realize that change is important, if a business is going to grow. Finally, I am a quick learner and someone
who will pick up the job fast, meaning you do not need to waste valuable time and resources
teaching me the role for a prolonged period of time.” Great key strengths! There are 5 that you can give them. QUESTION NUMBER 6 – “What is your biggest
weakness?” Another pretty guaranteed interview question
at your interview. Here we go; here is the answer. “Whilst I personally don’t think this is
a weakness, other people including my partner have pointed it out to me in the past and
that’s the fact I don’t tend to stop working. For example, in my last job I used to log
on for an hour or two when I got home from work and that means I don’t recuperate or
get enough proper rest. The reason I do it is because I simply, love
my work, but I have to remember my career is a marathon and not a sprint. I am learning to switch off when I get home,
but I will always be available outside of work, if an important job needs doing. And that’s a safe weakness to give! QUESTION NUMBER 7 – “Do you have any questions
for us?” You’re going to be asked this at the end of
your interview. So, do you have any questions for us? And yes, you should ask questions, but you’ve
got to be very careful with the questions that you ask. I’m going to give you three here that you
can ask during your interview, but make sure the questions you ask, put you across in a
positive manner. Here we go. QUESTION 1 – “I noticed on your website
you have launched a new product which looks interesting. Has it been a success?” OK, go on the company’s website, the one you’ve
been interviewed for. Have a look on there for any new products
or services that they’ve recently launched in the last 12 months and ask them about it. Has it been a success demonstrates an interest
in their business. QUESTION 2 – “Who’s your biggest competitor
and how could I help you in this role to better them?” So, you’re asking them, it’s a great question
– “Who is your biggest competitor and how can I help you in the role to beat them
to better them?” That shows that you care. Next, the final question. “What’s the next stage of the hiring process?”,
shows that you are keen and you off enthusiastic. So, I put a link to more great interview training
