Agree with Surabhi. You can always something nice about him/her, even though you may not rate them well. One can say that "I admire the patience you show and I feel that your listening skills are pretty good too!" Find something positive to say and that will make him happy. Which will mean you will get the job. All the best!
There are some circumstances when you can demur from giving referees names out - where you're applying for a job without your current employer knowing about it, and you don't want a referee to know to whom you're applying unless it's extremely likely that you'll join them.
In this case you can use the request: 'Yes, of course I am happy for you to take up references, but can we do this when we've made good progress and there's a good chance that we might be going ahead together.
Another possible reply could be 'I would prefer to give my current employer as a referee only when you hav
Generally interviewers ask this question when they think that the candidate has potential for the job. It is a positive sign for you. Don’t look worried or stressed. Say ‘Yes’ with a smile on your face.
Be careful when you list references in your resume. Two references are enough. Ideal way is one reference of your teacher, preferably project guide. Another one of guide for internship or external projects i.e. someone you have worked with. Let them know that you will be sharing their contact details in case the employer asks for. Hence, it will not be a surprise call fo
You can't just say that such questions are none of their business, but you do have to politely but firmly sidestep. Be honest but do not spend a lot of time in this area. Keep the focus on this job and what you can do for this organization. Anything else is a distraction.
A sample answer could be: " I am looking at another job that has good potential like the one we're talking about. However, I really like the career development opportunities in what we're discussing".
If you are a fresher, the simple response is "As per your company policy!". But in case of persons with work experience; then you may state that your last drawn salary was so much and you are expecting an 'x" % increase. That X depends on your confidence and your need for the job change.
we can reply as If I find the potential growth and where as I can constantly refine my skills and knowledge " I will be with the company for the longer time...
Be aware of the policy on relatives working for the organization. This can affect your answer even though they asked about friends not relatives. Be careful to mention a friend only if they are well thought of.
This is up to you. Be totally honest. But if you are desperate for this job then a sample answer could be like: 'I am well aware that in a competitive industry such as this you can't expect a work completely regular hours. I am open for such irregularities.
This is the question to test your confidence also in continuation with above reply of expert.
You can say YES because it shows that you are ready to take new responsibilities also as and when required. In sales this is the question generally ask by the interviewer.
your reply also indicate about your home sickness. so you can say YES
This question comes only when the interview is about to end. Never say "no".
At the same time do not ask about salary or promotion prospects.
You can ask something using your research on the organization.
For example -
- "I understand your main competitor is X , is that right ..and who do you feel are the main players making progress in the industry"?
- "What type of projects will I be able to assist on"?
Keep it simple, don't pepper the interviewer with technical questions to which he or she may not know the answers.
Use your questions as an expression of interest and appreciation.
Don't answer this with simple 'Yes'. It won't do. A smart answer could be like:'I've been enthusiastic about my work. I've generally been in jobs that I enjoy, so that makes putting the effort in quite easy'.
Interviewer is looking for a fit between your dreams and his/her reality. All worthwhile jobs require hard work and an attitude of learning.
This question also exposes those with little or no initiative. People who don't plan or take steps to achieve their own personal progress will not be pro-active at work either.
To answer this question smartly it is helpful to gather as much information as you can about the job, the department and their entwined futures as you can. The more information you have, the better you will be able to customize your answer. Do talk about further develop
Never say Money even if it is the most important thing for you.
Money is important, but it is the work that will get me money. So, work is the most important. There can always be a better answer.
Be sure that you demonstrate level- headedness, morality, work ethic, and intelligence to know that money doesn't buy happiness.
You should always answer yes and briefly explain why. This is great opportunity to showcase your achievements. A good answer would have elements which are not much detailed but explain that you have
set goals and you have met some and are on track to achieve the others.
You can also quote about good remarks received from co-workers, team members and supervisors which give a sense of fulfilment to you.
The answer to this is important, as much to you as it is to the interviewer. Everyone is going to say that they are indeed looking for a balance and that their family is important as well as their career.
Some smart answers could be like: 'When anyone starts a new job they probably have to work a lot of hours to get it under control; if necessary during that time I'll work to the maximum.
Another smart reply could be effectively bringing out the point that people who achieve a good work/life balance tend to be more effective at work. It's not just the hours you work; it's yo
Please note that during Interview, there is no Right or Wrong answers.
Mainly it all depends on how confident you are in giving your answers. A little hesitation and that leads to self doubt and interviewer catches you then.
Your effectiveness is quite personal. Be tricky and diplomatic in Answering them.
If you say Good then they will ask you for a rating, and if you say bad they will loose confidence in you.
Rather leave the ball in their court.
"If I land a Job here, means I have been effective". can be an answer that will put the interviewer into the thinking.
You need to very diplomatic in answering this. If you say the job you are contending for is your dream job, you might loose credibility. If you say another job, you plant the suspicion that you will be dissatisfied with this position if hired. The best is to stay generic and say something like: A Job where I love the work, like the people, can contribute and can't wait to get to work. The question also indicates as to how realistically the interviewee is. Some people visualize highly fanciful and unrealistic jobs, which could be a warning sign to a potential employ
Organizations are looking for talent to join them, not just someone to do a job. Be honest and enthusiastic but mainly keen to prove yourself in the job you're applying for.
A sample answer could be like -'I want to move forward and have a career that makes good progress. I know that my career will depend first and foremost on doing well in the job I go into. As I do that job I'll also become more knowledgeable in the industry'.
The underlying crux is to show that you are ambitious but not arrogant enough to know exactly where you want to be. Sometimes this question is asked
I would suggest that you should not hesitate to answer such a question rather it is a pride moment to convey with specific answer smartly.Also try to highlight unique achievements,if any which could be well appreciated and compliment to role of job which you have applied for.
I advise you to go through the background of the organisation and analyse the role of the post applied for.Keeping in mind the confidence of handling the assignment and the professional qualities you have place a good plan with relevance,logical and practical and acceptability.Try to win the minds of interviewer and interact with relevant points which should benefit the organisation.
