Home: Job Interview Questions and Answers
A job interview can be quite stressful for most of us. The anxiety of being judged by a group of people on the basis of what we say or do, can take a toll on our confidence and our performance in relation to job interview questions and answers.
However, a little preparation and research can help you gain the lost confidence, curb the anxiety and answer job interview questions better than your competition.
To deal with job interview questions well, you must be prepared and knowledgeable about the job and the company.
Start with research about the company. Company's official websites are a good source. You can also Google the company's name.
Get hold of a copy of the Job Description if the job ad was a little vague. Calling the HR Department to ask for one shows initiative and determination - two key attributes! Once you have enough knowledge about the company and the job, you'll have an idea about specific job interview questions you'll be asked and can prepare good answers.
