Common Interview Questions & Answers for Freshers

11. How many subordinates did you supervise in your previous employment?

If you don’t know the exact number, then you may give an approximate but do not boast about it.

12. Words or figures – what do you prefer working with?

This tricky question can be answered in many ways. You may take a specific one if you’re confident enough to back with substantial reasoning. Otherwise you may play it safe by saying that you’re comfortable working with both words and figures.

13. What features did you like the most and the least in your last job position?

Be honest while answering this particular question. You may even co- relate your answer to what the new position will offer you but make sure you don’t speak vaguely. While explaining the least liked aspects, don’t go too much into details.

14. What are or where your three most major achievements in your current or last position?

You can articulate while answering this or you may even take achievements from your resume which you already would have mentioned. Using brief statements would be a plus point if you can back It with appropriate statistics.

15. What would your previous boss say if I ask him about your greatest strengths and weaknesses?

Explain your strengths which will be good for the organization. Don’t lay much emphasis on your weakness; rather state them as lack of certain skills which you can learn over time with training and experience.

16. How well can you work under pressure and deadlines?

“Very well” – would be a perfect answer followed by some solid statement like working under pressure makes you perform better.

17. Don’t you get this feeling that you would do better in a different company both in terms of size and type?

This is the perfect time to once again explain the interviewer that how your qualification, organizational skills and expertise will help you perform better in this job, emphasizing on the point that you’re the best fit in this role.

18. If you face a conflict on a project team, how do you resolve it?

Explain in the same order in which the events would take place, assuring that you’ll work according to the company’s disciplinary policy. You would first understand the problem and discuss in private and thoughtfully. Even after that if the problem is not solved then you would take required actions.

19. What is your expected salary if we offer you this job?

You can always start by asking what the range of similar jobs is. If you don’t get an answer then mention your worth in terms of a range. You should also do some research so that you know what others are offering for similar position.

20. What are your strong points & weak points?

You need to modify your reply according to the position you’re applying for. State at least 3 strong points which you can relate to the current job position.

On weak points, don’t say bluntly that you don’t have any; rather you can just tell one of your characteristics which you need to work on.
