Job Interview Questions 1

Before you work on these questions, read Job Interview Questions: How to Prepare 

This is the first set of questions. Work through each question carefully. The space provided between questions is there so you can note down what you think you should include in your answer. 

Once you go over the whole list on this page, practice answering once more after you have studied your notes. 

If you are satisfied with your answers, move on to the next set of questions here.  


Be aware of the fact that questions need to be altered slightly depending on the candidate and position. For instance, someone who hasn't worked elsewhere before should omit question 21 for obvious reasons.
