How to Answer Common interview Questions -  (With Best Tips)

     Tell me about yourself.

Reply. This is the most frequently asked question. You will definitely get this question in every interview. So be prepared for the question. You should not answer questions like: “my name is …., my school is …. My college is…. Blah blah…. !!” These are already on your resume. The interviewer is already following your name, school, college, etc. Answer something that is not on your resume. So don't waste their time either. Answer with some points that are not on your resume. Like in my university I arranged a program, I was good in debate, I attended fair, I visited industries, I saw these things there, I learned these things. Articulate your mission and vision. Remember the answer. Make sure you have one to three minutes to answer this question in each interview.

For those who are already working, I advise you to discuss your achievements and describe yourself. Try to make them understand that you are exactly the person that the company is looking for. Show the interviewers your potential.

2. Why did you leave your last job?

Reply. Don't say my boss was bad, I had a problem, the management was not good, the environment was bad, the culture was not good, and the co-worker was not good. It will directly prove that you are a loser. It will show that you can't work in a team, you're not proactive and you can't handle situations. Do you think the interviewer will hire you after saying a negative word about another company? Who knows that you will also say a bad word about this company in the future? So DO NOT USE NEGATIVE STATEMENTS.

Rather, tell about your goal, potential, vision, opportunity, etc. For example, I want to develop a career in the FMCG sector, I have sufficient knowledge about branding, etc. It does not degrade the reputation of another company or your image.

3. What experience do you have in this area?

Reply. Before going to the interview, read the JD for the post; understand it line by line very clearly. Match your current experience with their request for freshers; I would suggest linking your co-curricular activities with the JD post. Remove your hesitation before sitting in front of the viva board.

4. What do you know about the organization?

Reply. It will be a crime if you don't study about the company before going for the viva. Visit their website, collect information from connected or personal networks. Know about the company. Going for viva without knowing the company may be the reason for your rejection. Visit website:  Best Job Site in Bangladesh

5. Do you consider yourself successful?

Reply. I know you will answer yes, but please remember that you must gather sufficient evidence to support your claim. For example, say you have successfully completed your final year project, organized a picnic and came first in debate and so on.

6. Tell us your bad side.

Reply. Well, that's a tricky question, isn't it? what will you say You don't have a bad side. You are the perfect man. It is…?? Certainly not. So answer the question smartly. Turn your negative statements into positive ones.

For example, you might say, I am too much of a perfectionist, I care too much about my work, I like smart work over hard work, I prefer potential over performance, I judge people by their work rather than their relationship.

7. Are you applying for another job?

Reply. Be honest about the question, but don't spend a lot of time here. Focus on this job and what you can do for this organization. There is no need to discuss this at length.

For example, yes, I am trying to pursue my career in FMCG sales and marketing. But yours is a reputed company and a prestigious job, so I am selected here, I would like to stay here for at least 3 years. Why should I apply for other jobs when my career growth is guaranteed here based on my performance.

8. What is your expected salary?

Reply. Always remember in every negotiation table; never ask the price first. Let the opposition let you know their range. If you have good networking, try to know the range before attending the interview. You can also politely ask them about the range. Freshers should not bargain in the beginning. Experienced people can tell your current status in terms of your lifestyle, family members etc. From this the interviewer will get an idea of ​​your expectation.

9. Why do you want to cooperate with us?

Reply. Do research about the organization; about the position you are going to apply for, about the sector, about the strength of this company in that sector, about the reputation of the company, etc. to answer the question. Take it as a challenge to work for a non-reputable company. Consider it an honor to work for a reputable company. In both directions, show the interviewer your potential. Let them identify, YES, you are the person they are looking for.

10. Where do you want to see yourself in 5 years?

Reply. Do you really know the answer to this question? If not, think about your strength, your potential, your vision. Make sure you have good career planning. You know your goal and you know the way to achieve it, and you are also ready to work hard to achieve that goal.

Some tips

Don't forget to bring a pen to the interview. That's a crime.

If the interviewer asks you a question in Bangla, don't answer in English. That's too clever.

If you are weak in English, take permission from the interviewer that you prefer Bangla for speaking.

Maintain eye contact with the interviewer, do not look down.

Turn off your phone during the conversation.

Test your typing speed before going to the interview. How many words can you write in one minute is a common question today.

Have a good time, you're not a student anymore, take care.

Don't lie; don't swear in front of viva board.

Don't smoke before you go to the viva, lest you be late.

Do not argue with the interviewer. Don't let them confuse you.

Don't say I can do any job, I can do any job, I need a job, please give me a job. This will end up losing your personality, potential in front of the interviewers. Even if you are a bit depressed about your career, be smart and confident before the viva board.

Don't be arrogant in front of the interviewer. You haven't got the job yet. Remember it.

Today the interviewer sometimes talks dirty to test your emotional intelligence. Don't respond to anything. Quietly. Who knows what good news awaits you.

Provide information to the interviewer SMARTly (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time Bounded) and smartly.

All this will come only if you have a good resume and cover letter. A good resume will get you on the interview board, so make it a point to create an engaging resume.
