question? Three tips. First of all, before I give you the suggested
answer, tip number one: focus on how you can add benefit to the role you are being interviewed
for. So how can you add value and be a benefit
to the employer within the role? Tip number two – mention the key qualities
and attributes of the job within your answer to this question. Tip number three – make sure you match any
previous experience you have to the job in your response to the question. So, how do you do that? Here’s my suggested answer for you for the
interview question “Why should we hire you as an employer?” “You are investing time money and resources
into this role and therefore you want to get the right person. Now, having studied the job description in
detail, I believe I am that person. The job description requires an ability to
deliver excellent customer service, an ability to consistently meet targets, and to also
fit quickly within your already established team. Now my resumé, and previous work experiences,
make me strongly believe I can do all of those things. I am a hard worker. I am professional, self-motivated and committed
to achieving your goals and the company mission. I feel confident that if you hire me you’ll
be more than happy with my performance and the dedication I will apply within the role.” So, that’s a very strong answer to the interview
question “Why should we hire you?” that you can use in your interview. Let’s have a look at the next question. “What is your biggest strength?” Now of course, they are going to follow this
up with “What’s your biggest weakness?” So, I will tackle that for you as we go through
this tutorial, but first of all let’s take a look at the interview question “What is
your biggest strength?” Here we go, three tips. Tip number one – your key strengths should
align to the job advert and the job description. Tip number two – Focus on four key strengths
in your answer as opposed to just one. Now the majority of people will just give
one strength, but you are going to be different and unique. I want you to give four key strengths and
then explain to the interview panel how your key strength is of benefit within the role. Here’s how to do that. Here’s the answer: “I believe I have four
key strengths. Professionalism, an ability to work towards
the wider company goal, team working skills and, above all, dependability. My biggest strength is that if you give me
a difficult job or project to complete I will go away and complete it to the right standard
and within the allocated timeframe. I am a dependable and reliable employee who
will never let you down within the role or whenever completing a task.” So, that sounds much more stronger than if
you just mentioned one thing. So, you are talking about four key strengths
and then focusing at the end on one in particular, and how it benefits the employer. Great answer. OK, next question: “Why do you want to leave
your current job?” I can pretty much guarantee this will come
up during your interview. So, we need to make sure you answer it correctly. Here are three tips to the interview question
“Why do you want to leave your job?” Tip number one – Do not be disrespectful about,
or criticize, your previous manager, your company or your employer. Please do not do it. Tip number two – Say you want a fresh challenge
with a new company, and tip number three – be complimentary in your answer by telling them
they are innovative and forward thinking. So, we want to flatter the interview panel,
to want for a better term, but that’s what we need to do, and this is how you need to
do it. Here we go. “While I still very much like my employer
and the team I’m in, I feel ready now for a new and fresh challenge. I had planned on staying there for many years
to come, but now is the right time to move forward and I have been on the lookout for
the right position to emerge within your company. I have so much to offer and I feel excited
about the prospect of putting my skills, attributes and experience to test with hopefully your
organization and a new and innovative team.” Great answer to the interview question “Why
do you want to leave your job?” Next question –“How do you handle stress
and pressure in the workplace?” Here are three tips. Tip number one – Be sure to have a plan already
for dealing with stress and pressure in the workplace. Tip number two – tell the interview panel
your mindset is switched on to dealing with it, and also using it to your advantage, and
I’ll explain how to do that in a second. Tip number 3 – explain how you continually
look to develop in a role which then goes on to help you manage and deal with pressure
and stress more effectively. So, how do we do that? Here’s my suggested answer. “First and foremost, through having a positive
mindset and also through preplanning I always adopt a ‘can do’ attitude. If you expect things to be tough at times,
which they inevitably are, you are then mentally prepared for what’s to come, and this allows
you to focus on the task and achieving your work targets effectively. Now, with regards to preplanning, I always
think ahead as to what I need to do within my role over the forthcoming four weeks. This helps me to remain focused and it also
eliminates stress within the position. Finally, whenever stress or pressure occurs
within the workplace, I always look to see what I can learn from that experience to try
and make things smoother for next time. I believe if you continually develop and evolve
within the role, the amount of stress and pressure will simply reduce over time.” That’s a great answer! You are prepared for stress and you are also,
more importantly, learning from each experience. Next question. So, this is the follow up to the what is your
strength? This is “What’s your biggest weakness?” Here are three tips for getting the question
right. Tip number one – don’t mention a weakness
that is a match for the job description. So, for example, if you are required to work
effectively as part of a team, do not say one of your weaknesses is you prefer to work
on your own. Tip number two – turn your weakness into a
strength, and I’ll teach you how to that in a second. And also tip 3 – suddenly explain how your
biggest weakness is in fact a benefit to the employer. Let’s take a look at my sample response for
you, for helping you pass your interview. “My biggest weakness is that I am too trusting
sometimes. In my previous job I was working with a number
of other team members on an important project and I made sure the task I was working on
was completed on time and also to the required standard. As the project deadline approached, we all
got together to discuss the final stages and it became apparent that two team members were
way behind with their tasks. I trusted them to do their job, and they simply
had not delivered. I actually learned a lot from that experience,
and whilst I still think it’s important to trust your work colleagues, I make sure I
hold regular update meetings with other team members to make sure we are all working toward
the same goal and set timeframes.” That is a clever response to the “What’s
your biggest weakness?” interview question. Next question – “What motivates you?” Here’s three tips for getting the getting
the question right. Don’t mention any interests or hobbies outside
of work. Purely make your response to this interview
question and work specific. Tip number two – in your response to these
motivational interview question, try and tie in how your performance at work helps you
to achieve your external goals. And I’ll explain how to do that in a second. Tip number three – utilize an intelligent
response this shows you are a stable person. Here we go. “My greatest motivator is doing a great
job for my employer. I believe there is so much to gain from being
a strong and competent employee. Firstly, it means you can feel more secure
in your job knowing you’re working towards the company’s goals and helping it to be more
profitable. Secondly, because we spend so much time at
work, it is important for me to be respected by my work colleagues and peers, and I believe
you only gain respect by being competent in your job. Finally, I do have a family outside of work
and I want to provide for them moving forward and give them the things they both need and
want. I will only be able to achieve that by being
good at my job and delivering for my employer.” That’s a great answer! Next one, interview question – “Where
do you see yourself in five years’ time?” Very, very common question. Here are three tips to help you get it right. Demonstrate you still want to be working for
their company in five years time, but make sure you have a valid reason for doing so. Tip number two – show the interview panel
you have really looked into their organization and what has actually attracted you to them. Tip number three – show you have ambitious
plans for the future and that you would consider promotion or advancement with the company,
if the opportunity arises. Here’s my sample response for you. “Now, the short answer is I would like to
still be working for you within your organization either in the same position, or ideally having
gained advancement or promotion to a higher level. Now during my research, I learnt a lot about
your organization and I can see you are a company who is going places. You appear to be forward-thinking, innovative
and you have exciting plans for the future. On that basis, I would still like to be working
for you, providing you are satisfied with my performance and the level of output I demonstrate
within the role.” Another cracking answer to one of those interview
