This list of Common Interview Questions is based on the interviews I have attended in the past. I suggest all of you to review these typical interview questions and think about how you would answer them.

Here is the list:

• Tell me about yourself
• Why did you leave your last job? Why are you looking forward for the change? What has disappointed you in current job?
• What experience do you bring in to the table in this field? Why should we hire you?
• Why do you want to work for this organization? What do you know about this organization?
• What have you done to improve your knowledge in the last year?
• What is your definition of the dream job? What are you looking from this job?
• Are you applying for other jobs?
• What is your greatest strength? What makes you feel that you would be asset to the organization? How can you be an asset to this organization?
• Can you work under pressure?
• Do you consider yourself successful?
• Do you know anyone who works for us?
• Are you a team player?
• What will your co-workers and supervisor say about you? How much your co-workers and supervisor will rate you on scale of five? Explain why?
• What irritates you about your co-workers and boss? What qualities do you look for in your co-workers and boss?
• How long would you expect to work for us if hired? When are you planning to retire?
• What is your philosophy towards work?
• Have you ever had to fire anyone? Why did you do it?
• Have you ever been asked to leave a position?
• What is more important to you: the money or the work?
• What makes you feel that you would do well at this job? What motivates you to do your best on the job?
