Questions asked in HR interviews

Lets join all together the questions asked in HR interviews.

Q: Tell me about yourself

The most often asked question in interviews. You need to have a short
statement prepared in your mind. Be careful that it does not sound
rehearsed. Limit it to work-related items unless instructed otherwise.
Talk about things you have done and jobs you have held that relate to
the position you are interviewing for. Start with the item farthest
back and work up to the present.


Looking for more.

Only one message - Be Yourself in any interview. It so uncool to pretend to be someone else.

There are few typical questions an HR Head will ask -

1. Why do you want to join <company name> ?
2. What are your strengths?
3. What are your weaknesses?
4. What is your biggest achievement in life?

Do you really think that this reply can work? Well am still wondering!! 😉
Anyways, apart from these there could be general questions on the hobbies listed in your CV or they could probably give you a certain situation, and then ask you for a suitable solution out.

Like for example, one of my friends' was asked "Suppose you are the Team Leader and there is a serious problem and arguement going on among your team members. Everyone is shouting with his/her distinct views. Now what will be your strategy to tackle the situation and the chaos?"

I have my own answer and that perhaps would match with many of the CEans, but still lets see.

Hey aashima I have a habit of typing comments without brackets or quotes thats why probably you took it as my answer! And if it were to be taken up as an answer 'No, it won't work and my advice to you never try it!! 😀 😁' (mark the quotes and the brackets plz!) 😀 😁

i have read answer to this question somewhere.and it was...
Reassure your interviewer that you’re looking to make a long-term commitment…that this position entails exactly what you’re looking to do and what you do extremely well. As for your future, you believe that if you perform each job at hand with excellence, future opportunities will take care of themselves.
example:I am definitely interested in making a long-term commitment to my next position. Judging by what you’ve told me about this position, it’s exactly what I’m looking for and what I am very well qualified to do. In terms of my future career path, I’m confident that if I do my work with excellence, opportunities will inevitable open up for me. It’s always been that way in my career, and I’m confident I’ll have similar opportunities here.”

Control Yourself!

That's so bookish! Don't sound like 'everyone else'. I suggest that one should have his/her own answer to most commonly asked questions. Remember, 'Be Yourself!' - it covers everything.

Above all, do not lie to the interviewer or cheat the company you are applying to!

Well thats true! And not to forget that body language and communication skills also play a major part in campus interviews. And it even can surpass ones other negative points. So major emphasis should be laid excel in these areas.

Let's play a game over here. Assume that you are applying for a job in CrazyEngineers 😁

I'll ask a question and the participants will have to come up with their own answers. Say what?

Basic things,

The H.R wil look at only your body language especially your eyes,

Look ony him/her Dont scroll your eyes.

First to encourage or test U, They will ask Tell some thing about yourself ,

The only thing you need to tell should be apart from your C.V or Resuma.

Even you can tell that i will help others by giving sub-domains on my website, So the Strategical Helpless developers can have a platform bcoz of me.

So that the H.R gets attracted - since he is also a normal Person.

And Say your Negative as Positive .

Thats it .

Me got placed in INFY 2006 thru Campus Requirment only bcoz of my smile hearted Cool Bold and Responsible answers like i mentioned above.

Hope so it will help my buddies too😒.

Thanks and Regards,
A.SK...

Give me an example of your creativity.
How long would you expect to work for us if hired?
Are not you overqualified for this position?
Would you lie for the company? (Not sure about this one!)
Who has inspired you in your life and why?
What was the toughest decision you ever had to make?
On a scale of one to ten, rate me as an interviewer.

Could someone answer these questions?
