The Top 100 Job Interview Questions And Their Answers For Jobseekers

Hiring new employees is a crucial and inevitable business process. It is essential for a business to hire the right people for any positions in order to ensure that operations continue to run smoothly and seamlessly. A wrong hire can cause a lot of problems for a business in the long term. Therefore, it is necessary for every organization to follow a proper process that can aid them in hiring the best people for jobs. Here are some Of course, you can best answer a question when you already know its answer. This is why experts always suggest jobseekers to prepare for the common interview questions before they appear for the interview. It not only gives them the confidence to answer questions but also allows them to smile through their interview. Of course, it is impossible to mention all the questions that have been asked on job interviews but we have carefully selected the top 100 questions that repeat in most of the interviews. The answers are given to all the questions but candidates are free to use their discretion.

1. Tell us about yourself. Introduce yourself.

This is the most commonly asked question all around the world. What you would like to say to answer this question is your name, qualification and experience. Try to mention your experience in terms of how you have always been sticking to this field and mention a few achievements in short words. Don’t make it too long or keep it too short. You can always mention your future goal as part of your introduction as well.

2. Why are you here?

You would not want to say, “I am here for the job”. That will not sound intelligent. You could mention how you found the job posting and what experience in the field made you think that you were suitable for this position.

3. Why Us? Why do you specifically want to work for us?

There are many takes on this question. You could talk about the privileges you expect from the position at that company and tie it with your growth. After that, you could tie your growth with the benefit of the company. You want to make sure that you don’t come off as a person who wants to work for that particular company only for his/her benefits.

4. How was your experience at your last job?

Do not talk about the altercations you had with your boss and issues you had with your last job. Mention your experience as a pleasant experience. If you think your last job did was not according to your skills, state it as clearly and confidently as possible. Do not try to malign your previous boss or company.

5. What makes you think you are fit for this job?

This is a very important question and your answer to this question could have a huge impact on your selection or rejection. Here, you would want to mention your experience, skills and qualification and tell the interviewer how they are perfectly in line with the position you are applying for. At the same time, you would want to state your passion and love for the job you are doing.

6. What is your strength? What are your strengths? What makes you special? Describe yourself in one word.

All these questions mean the same thing. The interviewer wants to know what quality in your personality, which also contributes to your professional work, makes you better than others around you. You have to find that one trait in you that makes you a great professional and a person. For example, a person who takes decisions quickly would describe this strength as the thing that makes him special. It is best that you have a real-life example to back your claim too.

7. What are your weaknesses?

They are not talking about any physical weaknesses in your body such as deficiencies of iron, calcium etc. They want to know whether there is a trait in your personality that is not considered generally as a good trait for professionals. For example, a person who panics under pressure could state it as a weakness by saying that he can’t handle pressure really well. Don’t state too many of them and do not talk about something that makes you appear as a rude or nonprofessional person.

8. How do you overcome that weakness?

If you have a weakness that could affect your professionalism in any way, the company would be interested in knowing how you take care of that. You must always have a solution for your weakness since you know your weakness. For example, a person who is not good at self-motivation might state that he/she seeks motivation in others or he/she always chooses someone as a mentor for receiving external motivation.

9. Why did you quit your previous job?

This is another very important question and one you will often face if you are a professional who has quit a job before. The best answer to this is to be honest. If there is something you are not very proud of you could say that you are looking for better opportunity.

10. Why have you quit so many jobs? Why have you been hopping jobs? 

If you have been quitting jobs throughout your career, you will be considered a job hopper. You are also called a job hopper based on how many jobs you have quit in a given span of time. You must have a solid reason to answer this question. It is better not to put the blame on your employers. Saying something like, “because I was looking for you” could be a great way to answer this question. However, you have to be extremely confident to say something like that.

11. How much salary do you expect?

To answer this question best you first need to have full information on how much the company has posted on its ad that it would offer for this job. Do not say that you will work for any amount because his puts you in a very weak position and makes you sound desperate. Know the wroth of your profession and position and state that as the least amount of salary you expect.

12. How did you come to know about this job opening?

Mention how you got to know about the job because this is going to show that you were always eager to do the job, look for a better opportunity and you were actually putting in some efforts to look for the job opening. Do not hide the name of the person, organization or article you discovered the job from.

13. What information do you have about our company?

It is best that you do some research about the company before appearing for the interview. The most important thing to know here is company’s goal, mission and vision. State those things and tell the interviewer how you completely agree with the philosophy of the company and want to become a part of it.

14. Why do you need/want this job? What is your motive behind working for this position?

Once again, it is your time to tell the interviewer about your skills and how you want to put those skills to good use not only for your growth but also for the benefit of the company.

15. Why should we prefer you over other candidates that are here for this job?

There is literally no answer to this question. Any answer you give could be responded to by the interviewer as, “other candidates have said the same things but why you?” The best answer is to state your experience, skills and highlight your achievements. This is where you have to talk at length about your achievement. How confident you are while responding to this question is what makes you stand out here.

16. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

The objective behind asking this question is to know your confidence and the height of your goals. Mention the best you have dreamed of becoming in your life. Don’t be reluctant here and do not be shy from telling how big you imagine yourself in 5 years.

17. For how long will you stay with our company?

The employer wants to know if you will quit this job just like other jobs as well. The answer should be a mentioning of your and company’s benefits. Say something like, “I would hope that I provide this company just as many benefits or more as I expect from this company. If this balance remains then I am not leaving this place ever”.

18. If you face a problem in the office due to a colleague, how will you handle the matter?

With this question the employer wants to know if you understand the hierarchical system of the professional environments. They don’t want you to say that you will handle matters yourself. You should say something like, “I would report that unpleasant event to my team lead and wait for the authorities to come up with a solution”.

19. What has been your most satisfying experience at any job?

The answer to this question will tell the interviewer about your true expectations and motivations for doing a job. Of course, the things that made you satisfied at any given moment would be considered the things that you most want.

20. Tell us your biggest accomplishment from your professional career.

This will tell the employer the best you have done at any job and your best capabilities. I will also tell the employer what the idea of “biggest accomplishment” is for you.

21. What will be your previous boss’ thoughts about you?

You can say this question relates to your strengths. Mention truthfully the things you think people notice about you and your work most commonly.

 22. Which animal are you? Tell us the name of an animal that you would like to be.

Such questions might not make sense to interviewees but they tell a lot about your psychology. First, you should be able to come up with a name quickly. Second, the animal you mention should be an impressive one. If you say “a rat” they might ask you why.

23. Tell us about a conflict that you might have had at some previous job. 

Tell the conflict and make sure to talk about the way you handled that matter. When you mention the conflict and its solution right with it, you are considered a problem solver. Make sure to talk about a conflict where you acted professionally and not irrationally.

24. Have you been interviewed at other companies? Are you still interviewing at some other companies? 

This will tell the employer about your seriousness for the job. It will also give the interviewer an idea of the competition they are facing in hiring you. It is best that you tell them about the other interviews or even better if you tell them about interviews for jobs that are similar to the one you are currently interviewing for.

25. What do you think you can expect from this job?

You have to read the ad for the job carefully in order to answer this question well. Just mention the things that are being offered as part of this job and say you want to grow from there. Just say that you applied for this job because it serves your expectations.

26. Is there a particular work environment that you prefer?

Once again, it is very important here that you read the job ad carefully because the work environment is often mentioned by employers there. Mention specifically the work environment that was posted with the job ad.

27. How do you handle pressure?

You might not face this question when you have already stated your strength as being calm under pressure, but you will face it if you have not already mentioned that. Give them an example of how you handled pressure on a previous occasion. Do not talk about the bad decisions you made under pressure.

28. Can you work as a team player?

Give the answer to this question with as much passion as you can. Tell them what specific role you often take up when you are a part of a team. The short answer to the question is yes. Don’t say you don’t like to work in a team.

29. Is there a type of colleague you don’t want to work with?

You don’t want to start listing the type of people you don’t like to work with. You will come off as a nonprofessional person and you can expect a rejection after such an answer. You are also indirectly raising a question at the company that they might have hired some queers and weirdos for work.

30. Is there a great disappointing moment in your career?

To answer this particular question you might want to take a problem solving approach again. Don’t just tell about the occasion when you were most disappointed but also talk about how you handled that situation and what lessons you learned from that. End your answer on a happy and positive note.

31. Are there any particular decisions that you can’t take easily?

Don’t be nervous while answering this question. Nothing you say is right or wrong. It is just a way for employers to know a little more about your personality and what they can expect from you when you work for them.

32. Has any company ever benefitted from a decision you took or a suggestion you made?

It is your moment to talk about a suggestion that you really made and then your company followed it. Do not talk about ideas that you always kept in your mind and never brought out.

33. Do you have the tendency to achieve your goals by leaping over company rules?

The tone of this question is already very clear. Your interviewer might ask the same question in different words so you have to be very careful in your listening. Never mention anything where you did not follow company rules only to meet your goals. This is not going to go in your favor at all.

34. Are you okay with relocation and traveling as a part of this job?

This is not a trick question or something that you will have to think about on the spot. You must have these things decided before you even come for the interview. You should appear for the interview only when you are ready to travel and relocate.

35. Tell us about the best and the worst boss you have had in your career.

Do not name a boss here because this again would be highly nonprofessional. Of course, if you would talk about the characteristics of their personalities that you hated, you are only making the employers laugh at you. You can always tell about a boss you liked the most.

36. Can you tell us your style of work?

Make sure to avoid clichéd and overused terms while answering this question. Talk only about the things in your style of working suitable for the job you are applying for. For example, if you are talking about a sales job then you might want to mention accuracy and speed as aspects of your working. You could mention that for an accountant’s job as well. Saying that you work hard would apply to any job but this is something anyone can say.

37. What would you do if your boss was wrong in a particular matter?

This is not a question that you would like to answer very specifically. You have to take a route that does not provide interviewer a straightforward answer. You could say that your approach depends on the situation and while at times you would want your boss to understand you, there are times when you will just like to stay quiet for better reasons.

38. Have you learned anything in particular from your mistakes?

It is best that you take the answer to this question in the direction of your strengths and professional maturity. You could say that you have learned to put your skills to use because you did not feel satisfied when you underestimated your skill and capabilities.

39. What could we do to make you angry while working for us?

Avoid mentioning things that make you angry no matter how valid and just they sound. This is not a place to talk about your personal grudges. Answer it professionally by saying something that you expect your new company to be a professional environment and while you act professionally on your job you are sure there will be certain professional rules and regulations in place that would provide me a method of taking my complaints to the authorities rather than getting angry about things.

40. How much do you rate yourself on a scale of 10?

Sometimes the employers will ask you this question because they want to know your self-perception and self-confidence. Companies love to hire professionals who are confident because confident people perform at their optimum efficiency and are highly productive. They take better decisions too. You would want to rate yourself higher. There should be no problem in rating yourself at 9 or even 10. Just say that you are getting even better with time.

41. Why do you want to work in this particular field? Why this career?

This is a question that might be asked more from people who don’t have much experience in a particular job and are interviewing for the first time. The employer wants to confirm that you are in this field because you really like and love it, not because you were pushed into it. They want to know your passion for the career and you can tell them that with your words. Give real life examples to prove your passion for your career.

42. Talk to us about your resume.

Sometimes the interview will throw the ball in your court and ask you to explain your resume. You might not have the chance to look at your resume so you should know everything by heart. It can be said that this question is asked to confirm that you are serious about the job and that you have prepared the resume with seriousness. Some people update things at the last moment and are not even sure what information there is on their resume.

43. Can you work on off days?

You will get that question a lot if you are going to work for sales, customer service or any call center job. Of course, you will have to say yes to this because these jobs require you to work on these days. If you have worked on off days on your past jobs you can mention that as a great plus factor for you.

44. What will be your take if you meet an angry customer?

Again, you are likely to be asked this question if you are interviewing for a sales, marketing or customer service job. You have to talk about professionalism here, use a few terms like empathy, sympathy etc. to show that you have the knowledge of how to deal with irate customers.

45. When you are available for work?

If you are going for a job where the shifts change or rotate, you will have to show your availability. It is best that you are already prepared for such questions if you are aware of the nature of your job. However, if there are certain days or times when you can’t be available, state that as clearly as possible.

46. Have you ever disagreed with what your boss had to say?

While answering this particular question you have to take the conversation away from the term “disagreement” as soon as possible. You can say that you had a different opinion on a particular matter from your boss but you were sure that your boss had the experience that you did not have so you did not show disagreement. You could even say something like, “I always like to give suggestions to my boss and talk about them”. It’s a discussion not a disagreement.

47. How important do you think punctuality is?

The answer to this question should be very clear in your head. You can back up your answer and make it sound more powerful by stating any dependability incentives you have received on your previous jobs. This is also the time for you to tell your interviewer that you were early for the interview because you care for punctuality.

48. Do you like to lead more or follow?

You can answer this by saying that you are a team player and so you take the role that is most suitable for you. Do state clearly that you are never scared of leading.

49. What hobbies do you have and why?

Some people think that playing guitar or football is not something they should mention as their hobbies on their resume or during the interview because it sounds nonprofessional. That’s not true. Tell your hobbies as is. Why you have those hobbies should also be clear in your head. Your job is not all about work. If your hobbies show that you like to remain active, you have a plus point there.

50. Do you have a personal favorite website?

This is a question that most new companies would ask. With this they want to know your know-how of the internet. They also like to see what your orientation is when you use the internet. Whatever website you mention, make sure to have some solid reasons to like that website.

51. Is there something you would change about your life if you could turn back time?

Questions like these are meant to check your psychology. The interviewer is trying to know your thoughts about your life and career. You could always ask the interviewer whether he/she wants to know about your personal or professional life.

52. What’s your definition of success?

This is technically a very difficult question because different people have different perceptions about success. However, when interviewing for a job it is best that you define success professionally. Make sure your definition is not limited to yourself only and that there is some mentioning of how you want other people’s benefits from your success.

53. What motivates you other than money?

You have to prepare to answer this question well in advance. Saying that there is no other motivation than money might not sound like a good idea. If there are things that motivate you other than money, mention them without any hesitation.

54. Is there anything that could be a hurdle in your way of doing this job?

This question can have many answers. You could answer by mentioning something that relates to the employer or sometimes your employer might ask you specifically about mental or physical conditions that could prevent you from doing the job. Be as truthful as you can while answering this question.

55. Do you think incentives tied with performance are a good thing?

Of course, you will have to say yes to this question. You can also provide a few sensible reasons as to why such performance based incentives make more sense. You could also state your past experience to highlight any big performances you made and received incentives for that.

56. Do you like directions before doing a task or you like to direct yourself?

This particular question is asked to assess your interest and aggressiveness while doing your job. Some people are only able to perform certain tasks when they are given instructions whereas others would believe in self-direction. If you are going for a job with high responsibility you must have self-directing skills.

57. Tell 3 things that you would change in your personality as soon as you could. 

If you have already talked about your weaknesses, just stress on them here. You don’t want to mention 3 weaknesses and name 3 more new things that you think are causing your professional life damage. This will make you appear as a person with many flaws. On the contrary, some employers might also like your honesty.

58. What qualities must a person have in order to be a leader?

There is simply no easy and short answer to this question. The best way to answer this one is to think about a leader that’s also your favorite or one of the favorite personalities. Think of the qualities of that particular leader and state them one by one. Better yet, you could just specifically mention the name of that leader.

59. What if you had to fire someone?

The employer is trying to know on what grounds you think a person should be fired. If you would fire someone for some particular reasons, you would hate to create those reasons for your boss to fire you too. This is another psychological question where you should keep your answer professional and not hit personal traits of the person for firing.

60. How updated are you about the field you are working for?

Employers expect you to be updated with the field and industry you are working for. This shows that you are not just a person who wants to earn some cash at the end of the month. They like to believe that you have goals in life and you want to adopt your current profession as your career. If you answer “yes”, they might ask you how.

61. Is there something you did not like in your previous job?

The best way you can answer this question is by saying, “things that I can get with the job at your company”. It only makes sense if an employee switches jobs for better opportunities and to work in a place where he/she can prove those skills. Employees also like places where their work is recognized and rewarded for.

62. Can you take criticism? Have you taken any criticism?

In a professional environment it is expected of you to take criticism and use it to your advantage rather than getting upset about it. You might be asked to quote that one instance when you had to take criticism. You will also be inquired how you dealt with the criticism.

 63. Have you been part of a team where some team member was not as motivated as other members? How did you handle that situation?

You don’t have to be a part of the team and it is not necessary that you had to be a part of a team to know the answer to this question. The main objective behind this question is to see how you would handle a situation where you have to act as a team player. If you have a real scenario to talk about, talk about it. If you have never worked in a team, just say that as a team player your first action would be to act as a mentor for that person.

64. What if your supervisor asked you to do something against company policies? 

This question can be asked to see how submissive you are to your authorities. The main purpose of asking this question is to see if you can be convinced to go against company policies. You should answer to this question by saying that you will never go against company policies whether it was your supervisor or your manager telling you to do so.

65. Have you ever made a big mistake on your job? How did you handle that moment?

This one will tell a lot about your behavior to your interviewer. It is advisable that you say that you informed higher authorities about the mistake in order to avoid further damages that could be caused by your mistake. Keeping your mouth shut or trying to solve the problem is not considered professional since such actions can result in more damages.

66. What if the company you are working for was going against the law in its operations and work?

You don’t want to take any middle way while answering this question. You don’t have to show your sympathy to the company which you will naturally be urged to do. Answer this question by saying that the least you would do is quit that job. There is nothing wrong in quitting a job for a company that was doing something illegal.

67. What is the most difficult decision that you have made in your career?

It is a simple and straightforward question that you can answer by stating an instance where you had to make a very difficult decision. You will be asked about the difficulties you faced while making that decision. What difficulties you were able to overcome while making that decision will tell a lot about your personality.

68. Were there any favorite subjects when you were studying?

You will simply tell the subjects that you were most interested in. You might have to tell the subjects you didn’t like too. However, remember that the reasons you give for not liking the subject might be taken as a quality of your personality. The employer might expect that you will dislike a job just for the same reasons too.

69. Are you interested in going for further education?

They will often ask this question to know if you will be fully available for the job or not. There are different types of courses available that you can state in your answer and say that your education will not affect your job because you can study from home using the internet. Do not give any hints that you will have to quit the job for your studies.

70. What particular reasons were behind your choice of the major subject?

You will be asked why you particularly chose a subject as your major subject. You have to give solid reasons that you were interested in studying and that you had the aptitude for that particular subject as well. Don’t say that you found this to be easy and so you picked that subject.

71. Will you become a valuable part of the company? If yes, how?

Of course, your employers are not expecting you to work for them just for the sake of earning your monthly salary. You have to give something to the company to get something back from the company. You have to maintain a good reputation and become a valuable asset for the company. Tell the company how your skills, valued experienced and knowledge of the field would make you a great asset for the company.

72. Do you have a personal mission, vision or mission statement?

People who are serious with their careers and professions will often have that. They will easily state it in very few words too. If you take too much time in explaining it the interviewer would know that you don’t have one. Make sure you have a mission statement for you profession that you can always follow.

73. Describe your work experience in a few words.

Employers would know about your feelings about your work as soon as you describe your work experience to them. Some people would say their experience was challenging and others would say that their experience was satisfying because they achieved what they wanted. There are different ways to state the experience. You have to stay away from stating your experience as a bad experience. Don’t describe it in broken and weak words.

74. Is multi-tasking really your thing?

Not every person is a good multi-tasker. However, there are jobs that require you to do many different tasks at the same time. What’s expected from you is that you perform all the tasks with full efficiency. You won’t be considered a multi-tasker if you do many things at the same time but your results are not good. Say you are a multi-tasker only if you are.

75. Are you a quick learner or a slow learner?

There are some jobs where you have to learn new things very frequently. For example, if you are working for a customer service of a mobile network you might have to learn about new promotions, varying taxes etc. on a regular basis. People who take time in learning things might not be able to keep up with the pace of such jobs. Be truthful about your learning speed.

76. Are you active on online social media?

Many interviewers will ask this question from you in the modern times. Your activity on social media tells them a lot about you. Companies expect you to be socially active these days, especially if you are going to work in a marketing field. Make sure you have an impressive online social media presence if you want a sales, marketing or PR job.

77. How fast can you type?

Questions about your typing speed are not going to be asked on every interview. However, you will be asked this question when you are looking for jobs where you require fast typing speed. Places where you have to note down customer inquiries or take quick notes of the meetings or client requirements need you to be fast with your typing speed.

78. How much do you know about computer?

You can’t expect to work in an office without a computer in today’s world. You have to have proper knowledge of computers, how to use them, how to use the many different applications and softwares. It is in fact considered a great plus point if you can fix many hardware issues of your computer too. Make sure you state all the softwares training and certifications you have obtained that have any relevance with the job you are about to get.

79. How good you are at socializing with other races?

If you are about to work for a company that has people from many different races and ethnicities working for it, you will definitely be asked this question. They might also ask you if you had any issues with people of other race or ethnicities in your past. You have to be clear in stating that you don’t believe in things like racism even though you know they exist. You can tell about your many different friends from various races and ethnicities if you have any.

80. Is it okay if we contact with the employers you have worked for before?

This could be a genuine inquiry from the employer or just a tactic to turn on your “truth” switch. Sometimes, they would call your previous employers to know about you. At times they ask this question only to imply that they might contact your previous employer and find out the truth if you spoke any lies. This is why you should have good relations with all your employers. You should be very confident at saying yes to interviewer’s demand of contacting your employer.

81. What is your method of motivating others?

You will be asked this question if you are going to work as a team or when you are being hired for a manager’s position. It is best to be truthful about this answer but you should keep in mind to make your answer look professional. Say things like staying in touch with your employees, listening to everyone, knowing their strengths and weaknesses, assigning them the proper roles and encouraging them to take on their weaknesses.

82. Are there any times when you don’t want to work?

Some questions are asked from the candidates only to know how truthful they are in their interview. If you are making everything up and you answers are not real, the interviewer will know about it. You will be too protective about saying anything that goes against you. In that attempt you might say that you always feel like working, but that’s not true. State the truth that there are times when you don’t feel like working but you have to motivate yourself.

83. Can we make you go through a lie detector test?

Once again, they might not really do this but they are only sending you a signal to be truthful in all the answers you give. As soon as you imagine doing a lie detector test you will already start speaking the truth.

84. Do you consider yourself physically fit? What do you do for fitness?

How good a person is at keeping a schedule can be found out by his/her daily routine. People who can keep working out regularly have the tendency in them to make a schedule and follow that schedule. This is the quality of a true professional. Your answer about how you maintain your health is going to tell the employer a lot about your seriousness with serious things in your life.

85. Are you an organized person?

This is a very important question and you have to give a very satisfactory answer to it. You can tell the interviewer about your real life schedule that you maintain on a daily basis. Say how you plan your day and how you make sure you finish everything in the time you have decided. If you use a software for your daily schedule maintenance, that is a huge plus.

86. If you have worked with a least favorite boss, do you have a solution to have a better relationship with him/her?

This is a test of your professional and mature thinking. Say yes you would love to improve your relation with your boss. You could also say that this particular boss was your least favorite but it does not mean you did not have a good relationship with him/her. You can say that you already had a great relationship with that boss because you know how to act professionally.

87. What are you often criticized for?

When you face this question just talk about the weakness you already mentioned or are thinking of mentioning when you are asked the question about your weakness later in the interview. You can always say that the criticism mitigated with time as you improved.

88. Give a good reason why we should pay you as much as you expect us to pay you.

This is the best time for you to talk about your skills, experience and your knowledge of the industry you are working for. Tell your employer that your position is worth the salary but do mention specifically that your services will be worth even more than what you have asked as compensation.

89. How good you are at anticipating your problems?

This question is quite a tricky question. What your employer is trying to ask here is whether you already know what problems are about to come or you just react to them when you face them. This is like talking about your insight of the matters you are dealing with.

90. Do you have any suggestions to improve the workplace environment for employees?

The question seems as if your employer wants to talk about the rights of the employees only but that’s not the case. You have to answer the question while fully mentioning the limitations of employers when it comes to implementing things that cost a lot. Just talk about a good relationship between the employer and the employee as a support pillar for a successful work environment.

91. For how long have you been unemployed and why?

This is not a question that you have to be witty about while answering. If there were some genuine reasons, you should mention them as straight forwardly as possible.

92. Why did you work for a particular employer for such a long time?

If there is a particular employer on your resume that you have worked with for a long time, you will face this question. Talk about a great relationship, growth, employer’s great attitude, your achievements and mix of these things.

93. Why did you feel the need of changing your career?

If you had to change your career path in the middle then you have to be ready to face this question. However, you can always explain your maturity as a professional. You can also explain that your previous work experience revealed that you would be good with the new career path.

94. Do you take your decisions alone?

Remember what you had said previously in the interview. You don’t want to say that you take your decisions alone if you have already mentioned that you are a team player.

95. What if you are not selected for this job?

There are many different ways to answer this question. Whatever you say just say it with confidence. Just say that you will stay in touch with the company and expect to be called if a similar position is available in future. Don’t say that you won’t be looking for any other jobs in the meantime.

96. Do you take the stress of your homely matters to the office?

Of course, you don’t want to say yes to this question. You can always say that you don’t mix the two lives and you don’t think it is professional to bring the matters of your house into the office.

97. Who is our CEO?

If you said in the beginning of the interview that you have researched about the company and that you know about it, you can wait for this question to come up. You should know the answer to it.

98. What are your feelings about drug tests? 

You should say that you don’t mind them because there are rules that have to be followed when doing jobs. You can talk about professionalism and mention how drugs could make a person act nonprofessionally.

99. Is there anything we have missed asking you?

If you really think that there is something that should be highlighted about your career, experience and personality but no questions were asked about it, state that particular thing. It will also show your confidence.

100. Do you have any questions for us?

It is better if you save some questions to ask at the end of the interview from your interviewer. If the salary matter was not raised, you should not be reluctant in talking about it. You could even ask confidently if the interviewer liked your answers and your personality to make the atmosphere lighter.
