Job Interview Questions 5

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

This is the fifth 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.

This set of questions is geared towards more personal issues related to an applicant's unique characteristics or experiences. Originally, I had drawn up these questions to suit a particular position that required dealing with clients and fund raising programs. I've unfortunately had to leave out several questions because they dealt with particular aspects of a position and wouldn't be relevant to, for example, a Computer Programmer or Teacher. However, what you should do is try to find particular aspects of the job you're applying for and think of questions an interviewer might ask in relation to them. 

If you have questions, email me or ask in the comment box after this blog entry.

Job Interview Questions 5

1) What are you looking for in this position that you did not have in your previous job?

2) Describe your passion for our mission.

3) You must have had cases where people you had to deal with as part of your job were upset about the way something was being handled. What do you do in such situations? How did you handle such an associate/client?

4) Have you ever lost an opportunity to do business with an important partner? Why? What did you learn from the experience?

5) When were you most satisfied in your job?

6) You seem like a person who has done a number of different jobs (in different sectors) or has been involved in a number of courses/programs. Would it be reasonable of us to be worried that you will decide to leave this position after some time or be too busy involved with a number of things while working for us?
