3) Where else have you applied?
Don’t be afraid to answer this question. The key to answering this correctly is to prove to the hiring manager that you are
serious about finding a new job. This being said, you only want to mention a couple of places you’ve applied to rather than
going into major details. If you’ve applied to many jobs, don’t admit this as you don’t want to come across as desperate.
The aim of this question is to see if you really are seriously looking for a new job. There is nothing wrong with showing
the employer that you are serious to find a new role. Download free ebooks at bookboon.com 9 Interview Secrets Exposed
4) What’s your greatest strength?
This is one of the easier interview questions, but to get the most out of your answer the best response needs to be related
to the job you are applying for. IF you’re an accountant and applying for an accountancy role, the best response you can
give for your greatest strength is your ability with numbers, your computer skills and your attention to detail. How about
if you’re a dancer applying for a role? Your greatest strengths need to be balance, team work, dedication etc.
Rather than using generic clichéd answers such as “hard-working” and “loyal”, use this question to show the value you
can add to the organisation. Please click the advert Teach with the Best.
