  1.  Introduce Yourself or Tell me a little about your self

Solution:- This is the most often asked question and you need to answer this question in a very impressive way because here you are expressing yourself in just few words. Basically you are trying to explain him that why you are perfect for this Job.

Start introducing yourself with few personal interests and experiences. Tell him about your hobbies and your interests and end the answer with your educational achievemnts.

     2. What are your biggest Strength and Weakness?

Solution:-You need to answer this question  very wisely. First explain him about your weakness in such a way that it doesn’t show any negative impact and then explain him about your strength so that you can also make up your weakness with your Strength. 

Explain your strength in such a way that it seems that you are actually proving your Strength.

  3. Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now?

Solution:- Answers to this question go one of two basic ways. Candidates try to show their incredible ambition (because that’s what they think you want) by providing an extremely optimistic answer: “I want your job!” Or they try to show their humility (because that’s what they think you want) by providing a meek, self-deprecating answer: “There are so many talented people here. I just want to do a great job and see where my talents take me.”

In either case you learn nothing, other than possibly how well candidates can sell themselves.

For interviewers, here’s a better question: “What business would you love to start?”

That question applies to any organization, because every employee at every company should have an entrepreneurial mind-set.

The business a candidate would love to start tells you about her hopes and dreams, her interests and passions, the work she likes to do, the people she likes to work with — so just sit back and listen.

 4. What are your Hobbies? or Do you have any interest outside of work?

Solution:-

Many companies feel cultural fit is extremely important, and they use outside interests as a way to determine how you will fit into a team.

Even so, don’t be tempted to fib and claim to enjoy hobbies you don’t. Focus on activities that indicate some sort of growth: skills you’re trying to learn, goals you’re trying to accomplish. Weave those in with personal details. For example, “I’m raising a family, so a lot of my time is focused on that, but I’m using my commute time to learn Spanish.”

 5. Why should we hire you?

Solution:- Put your answer in a way that shows your confidence and leadership quality because these 2 are very important factor which the interviewer notice in their candidate. Tell the interviewer about your achievements and your goals everything which you think will put a great impact on them.

 6. What do you consider as your biggest achievement at which you are proud of?

Solution:- This is a tough question to answer without dipping into platitudes. Try sharing leadership examples instead. Say, “The best way for me to answer that is to give you a few examples of leadership challenges I’ve faced,” and then share situations where you dealt with a problem, motivated a team, worked through a crisis. Explain what you did and that will give the interviewer a great sense of how you lead.

And, of course, it lets you highlight a few of your successes.

7.Tell me about a challenge you faced and how did you overcame with that?

Solution:- Don’t pretend you’ve never had one. Be honest about a difficult situation you’ve faced (but without going into the kind of detail you’d share venting to a friend). “Most people who ask are only looking for evidence that you’re willing to face these kinds of issues head-on and make a sincere attempt at coming to a resolution.

Stay calm and professional as you tell the story (and answer any follow-up questions), spend more time talking about the resolution than the conflict, and mention what you’d do differently next time to show “you’re open to learning from tough experiences.”

8. What makes you unique?

Solution:- Try to be creative and say something that will catch our eye!” Since you’ve only got a sentence or two to make your point, you’ll want to boil your answer down to the essentials: a single strength and how it makes you perfect for this job.

So taking the examples above, here’s how you could condense them to answer the prompt effectively:

  • I taught myself animation from scratch in college. I don’t just wait for things to happen at work—I proactively and eagerly pursue them.
  • I started a career in editorial after transitioning from the health industry. Because I was in their shoes, I know what career advice readers need.
  • I’m incredibly organized and live for my planner—and as a result my old boss never had a missed message or mistake in their schedule.

9. Would you like to relocate?

Solution:- While this may sound like a simple yes-or-no question, it’s often a little bit more complicated than that. The simplest scenario is one where you’re totally open to moving and would be willing to do so for this opportunity.

But if the answer is no, or at least not right now, you can reiterate your enthusiasm for the role, briefly explain why you can’t move at this time, and offer an alternative, like working remotely or out of a local office. Sometimes it’s not as clear-cut, and that’s OK. You can say you prefer to stay put for xyz reasons, but would be willing to consider relocating for the right opportunity. 

     10. Have you applied in another companies as well? or Are there any companies whose results regarding your application is                 pending?

Solution:- This Question should be answer in the most simplistic manner. If you have applied in other companies prior this competition or if there are any pending results just tell them as it is.

 11. Tell us how other people would describe you?

Solution:- It’s a total throwaway.  and the answer below is probably the best with respect to the question.

“I think people would say that what you see is what you get,” the candidate said. “If I say I will do something, I do it. If I say I will help, I help. I’m not sure that everyone likes me, but they all know they can count on what I say and how hard I work.”

Can’t beat that.

12. Are you a risk taker?

 Solution:- This one’s pretty tricky, as the answer here depends on your profession and field.

Ask yourself – is risk-taking a valuable skill for the job?

If you’re a pilot, for example, the answer should be a strict “No!”

If, on the other hand, you’re a day trader, then risk is an essential part of your job.

So, depending on how valuable risk is for your job, answer accordingly.

You could also give a more strategic answer. Let’s say, for example, you work in investment banking. You need to be a risk taker to an extent, but being too risk-friendly might make the entire company go bankrupt.

The strategy in such a case would be to show that you’re all about calculated risk. You’re willing to take chances, but only when the odds are in your favor.

 13. Why there is a gap in your educational background?

Solution:- 

Three words describe how you should answer this question: relevance, relevance, relevance.

But that doesn’t mean you have to make up an answer. You can learn something from every job. You can develop skills in every job. Work backward: Identify things about the job you’re interviewing for that will help you if you do land your dream job someday, and then describe how those things apply to what you hope to someday do.

And don’t be afraid to admit that you might someday move on, whether to join another company or — better — to start your own business. Employers no longer expect “forever” employees.

 14. Tell us in detail about your last year college project work in detail? (Mostly asked from freshers)

Solution:- This is a tough question to answer without dipping into platitudes. Try sharing leadership examples instead. Say, “The best way for me to answer that is to give you a few examples of leadership challenges I’ve faced,” and then share situations where you dealt with a problem, motivated a team, worked through a crisis. Explain what you did and that will give the interviewer a great sense of how you lead.

And, of course, it lets you highlight a few of your successes.

15. What can we as a company can expect from you in the first three months of joining?

Solution:- If you’re asked, use this general framework:

  • You’ll work hard to determine how your job creates value — you won’t just stay busy, you’ll stay busy doing the right things.
  • You’ll learn how to serve all your constituents — your boss, your employees, your peers, your customers, and your suppliers and vendors.
  • You’ll focus on doing what you do best — you’ll be hired because you bring certain skills, and you’ll apply those skills to make things happen.
  • You’ll make a difference — with customers, with other employees, to bring enthusiasm and focus and a sense of commitment and teamwork.

Then just layer in specifics that are applicable to you and the job.
