IBS Top 10 Common HR Interview Questions with Explanation
A job interview is one of the things that you need to get right on the first try. It is a make or break deal that will ultimately decide your career’s future. People often make the mistake of coming unprepared for an interview, thinking that their resume and experience is enough to get them through. This overconfidence often leads to disastrous consequences, of course. What they do not know is that these questions are designed to accurately measure an applicant’s suitability for a job.
The questions look easy enough on the surface, but they require profound and well thought answers.

*Stand in front of a mirror and rehearse your answers
*Be relaxed and be yourself
1 Tell me about yourself.
An often overlooked question that will set the tone for the rest of the interview. This is where an interviewer gets the ideas that he or she will use to formulate the questions to follow. Don’t narrate your biography, just a few interesting facts about your work experience, education, interests and your life in general would do. Your main goal in a job interview is to sell yourself. Do not come unprepared. Though companies have different work environments and hiring processes, the questions used in interviews are more or less the same. The best thing to do is to practice answering these commonly asked questions so you can answer them without batting an eyelash. Be confident and always put your best foot forward so prospective employers can notice you quickly.
2.Why should I hire you?
This is one of the most important questions to be asked during an interview, and it is not to be answered with some general, cliched statement. Do not mention anything that is already included in your resume. Mention facts about yourself that would set you apart from other applicants. Tell them why you are the best candidate for the job.
3.Did you ever find yourself in a difficult situation?
How did you handle it? Interviewers use this to subtly measure a job applicant’s perception of difficulty, and how he or she works under pressure. It is also an accurate gauge of a person’s problem-solving skills. Be ready to provide a concrete answer wherein you clearly demonstrated control and competence in handling work-related challenges.
4.What do you think your professors/teachers/co-workers would say about you?
When asked, this question could mean that a reference check is close at hand. Contact your references before an interview and ask them what they have to say about you. Stay positive when answering and only say nice things about yourself.
What are your weaknesses?
The worst answer to this is saying that you have no weaknesses at all. People all have weaknesses, and this question aims to see if you are aware of them and if you are currently working on ways to improve yourself. It is best to answer this question as honestly as possible.
What are your strengths?
This is an excellent chance for interviewees to shine. Make a list of some of your marketable characteristics (excellent communication skills, ability to handle pressure well, capacity to beat strict deadlines, etcetera) beforehand and pick some of the best ones that you have complete mastery over. Do not exaggerate your capabilities. It is best to provide examples and situations where you have utilized these skills. Just be sure that these strengths are relevant and suited to the job being applied for.
