Interviews are probably the most challenging part of job hunting. Much of this is dictated by the fear of interviews and difficult interview questions. It is impossible to predict what questions will arise and I promote a structured approach to preparation which enables job seekers answers 90% of questions asked during interview. I am regularly asked – what are the common questions that arise? Below I have outlined some of the more common difficult questions.
It is one thing knowing what questions you will face but another thing answering them effectively. You can find the answers to these questions on our interview answers page.
Typical Interview Questions
What are your weaknesses?
Why do you want to work for our company?

Tell me why you left (you are you leaving) your current job?
When have you been most motivated at work?
What makes you different from the other applicants for this role?
