Welcome Dear Job Seeker, My Name is Sunil. I am the Director of One of the Best English Language Institutes of India Called TAMS Studies. Here I am going to give you the list of Most Common Job Interview Questions and Answers. I have tried to give the most appropriate answers to the Most Common Interview Questions.
Most Common Job Interview Questions and Answers
I advise you to understand these questions and Practice the answers multiple times and try to absorb the structures.
While some job interviewers take a fairly unusual approach to interview questions, most job interviews involve an exchange of common interview questions and answers. (Including some of the most often-asked behavioural interview questions.)
Here are some of the most common interview questions, along with the best way to answer them:
Question: Why do you want to join our company?
Answer – I always wanted to join a reputed company and when I searched about Tams Studies I found it quite well. Also, I have gone through the reviews for the company by other employs and I am sure I will be able to make a sound contribution towards the organizational goals. That’s why I want to join.
Question: What are your strengths?
Answer – My strength is my positive attitude and eagerness to learn more. Also, I believe in being a team player. Also, keep talking about your strengths in an energetic way to make sure you sound natural and conversation keeps going.
Question: How did you celebrate your last birthday?
Answer 1 – I wanted to celebrate my birthday with my family and friends. However, because of the work, I had to be in my office. I did not have any plans to celebrate My birthday but suddenly my colleague gathered around me they had a cake and lots of stuff, it was a great surprise to me. I enjoyed this birthday a lot.
Answer 2 – Most of the times I celebrate my birthday with my parents and so did I do my last birthday. It was amazing as ever I worshipped in the morning with my parents and also, visited the temple. I also spent some time with my friends in the evening. That’s all.
Question: Can you work under pressure?
Answer – I never mind the work pressure as I am always ready to give my best. Moreover, I try to manage my work in such a way which ensures there is no unnecessary work pressure.
Question: Where do you see your Self after 5 years?
Answer – I want to see my self as a more successful, stable, and reputed professional in next 5 Years.
Question: What’s your salary expectation? / What salary do you think you deserve?
Answer – I am sure the company will consider my skill set and my experience and will be able to offer the best possible as per the market standards.
Answer 2 – I always tell my students not to tell this directly. Moreover, I want you to avoid discussing salary in the first interview. At the time of discussion, you must not tell your expectation in terms of salary. Instead, let the employer share the salary range they are offering. Also, you can ask in this in a soft and polite manner. Once you know the salary range, this is the time to expect more than the median. It means you need to expect the higher side of the salary offered. Yes, It works like this and it shows great confidence from your side. tell me why you should expect less for the skillset you have.
What salary do you think you deserve?
Most of the questions interviewers ask are to check your confidence and check your willingness to answer and deal with the situations. Also, how you communicate in different situations. Additionally, how positive and negative you can go in a given situation. Therefore, I advise my students to be positive and balanced as sometimes the interviewer is just checking your attitude.
Question: What is your weakness?
Answer – Do not answer this question with your real weakness if for god’s sake you have any. Instead, give an answer like this – Well, I do have got some weaknesses, Like when I like a Movie or a Series, I Cannot help myself finishing it. Also, If I find someone in need of help, I have to help them to best of my abilities. These things have put me into trouble sometimes. Still, I enjoy these weaknesses.
Question: How did you find about this ‘Job Opening’?
Answer – Just be honest when answering this question. I do not see any reason to hide the real answer to this. Make it sound natural and tell the truth in two to three sentences Like. One of my friends, Rahul works with your company and he shared this work opportunity with me. He also asked me to put his Employee Id on my Resume. He was quite excited about the Job Opening.
Question: Why do you want this job?
Answer – Here I would suggest you be very sincere as you cannot just praise the company to the answer to this question. You need to show the match of the Job Requirement and your skills, passion and long terms goals like. I would love to get this job as I have been looking for this kind of job only. it is so because I have the skills which exactly are the requirement of this job. Also, I would be making a great contribution to this job role because I love the work this job role offers to me.
Question: “What do you consider to be your biggest professional achievement?”
Answer – Never give the answer of this question in terms of figures or statistics unless the interviewer asks you to do so. You need to give a get around answer like. Apart from many professional achievement and rewards, I find my developing the ability to work as a team over a period of time is the biggest achievement.
Question: “Tell me about the last time a co-worker or customer got angry with you. What happened?”
Answer – This is one of the many questions where you need to lie or I would say it is an art you need to learn. In other words that is called diplomacy. You need to answer this question like – Well, In general, I am not the kind of guy whom people get angry easily. However, at times if I find someone talking to me in a bad mood, I listen to them and so far it has worked well. I do not remember anything specific of this sort though.
Question: What is your Dream Job?
Answer – Every job becomes a dream job when one starts loving the work he does or starts doing the work he loves. However, If I find a job which suits my skillset and gives me ample opportunities to perform and grow ahead in my career, I would call that my dream job as of now.
Question: Why do you want to leave your current job?
Answer – Here, Please mind my words, Never speak ill of your boss or the company or anything of that kind. focus on the positive things which may happen by changing the job. Say something like – My current job has not only given me a lot in terms of experience and skills but also contributed to me become a better person. However, I strongly feel that the change will bring better and more of what I deserve after possessing the skills and expertise. So, I am looking forward to a positive change.

Question: Tell me about the toughest decision you had to make in the last six months.

Come up with something which is real to you and can make sense in the interview. Well, I joined a company as a counsellor. She did not like the surroundings. Within 5 days, she started feeling upset. I noticed that and encouraged to leave the job.
There have been a few more situations like this.

However, I assure you that you will not be disappointed at all with whatever my performance will be. I am a quick learner and like to add value to my work. I will always be busy doing the right things. I already know and will also learn how to make my boss, colleagues, and peers happier and happier with my work and behaviour. I am kind of passionate and enthusiastic person who tries to bring positive difference with customers, employees, etc. Stay positive, Balanced, and Diplomatic as companies are looking for this kind of people only. Learn how to be diplomatic and real.
Question: What do you like to do outside of work?
Answer – Dear friend Every company wants dedicated employees and not those who have fancy hobbies. So, at times this question is asked by interviewers to find out that reality of yours. So, my advice here is to go with some hobby which might show your sincere side or can add some value to the job you are going to do. Like, I have many hobbies if have leisure time and money. However, these days I am trying to study some books which are actually enhancing my skills and I am sure that will help me perform at my job. Rest of the time I like to spend with my family.
Question: What questions do you have for me?

You can ask what all this job role offers in future. Something like that. I would like to know what is the team size I am going to work with.
