面试时常被问及的问题
1. "What can you tell me about yourself?" This is not an invitation to give your life history. The interviewer is looking for clues about your character, qualifications, ambitions, and motivations. The following is a good example of a positive response. "In high school I was involved in competitive sports and I always tried to improve in each sport I participated in. As a college student, I worked in a clothing store part-time and found that I could sell things easily. The sale was important, but for me, it was even more important to make sure that the customer was satisfied. It was not long before customers came back to the store and specifically asked for me to help them. I'm very competitive and it means a lot to me to be the best."
 

  1."关于你自己,你能告诉我些什么?"这一问题并非在请你大谈你的个人历史。雇主是在寻找有关你性格、资历、志向和生活动力的线索。下面是一个积极正面回答的好例子:"在高中我参加各种竞争性体育活动,并一直努力提高各项运动的成绩。大学期间,我曾在一家服装店打工,我发现我能轻而易举地将东西推销出去。销售固然重要,但对我来说,更重要的是要确信顾客能够满意。不久便有顾客返回那家服装店点名让我为他们服务。我很有竞争意识,力求完美对我很重要。"

2. "Why do you want to work for us? This is an obvious question and, if you have done your research on the company, you should be able to give a good reason. 0rganize your reasons into several short sentences that clearly spell out your interest. "You are a leader in the field of electronics. Your company is a Fortune 5O0 company. Your management is very progressive."

 

  2."你为什么想为我们工作?"这是个明确的问题。如果你对该公司做过调查研究,你应该能够给出很好的理由。你要将你的理由编成几句简短的话清楚地表明你的兴趣。如可答:"你们在电子领域是领头人。你们公司是《财富》杂志评选的500强之一。你们的管理很先进。"

 

  3. "Why should I hire you?" Once again, you should not be long winded, but you should provide a summary of your qualifications. Be positive and show that you are capable of doing the job. Based on the internships that I have participated in and the related part-time experiences I have had, I can do the job.

 

  3."为什么我应该聘用你?"同样,你不应长篇大论,而应提供有关你资历的扼要说明。要肯定自己,表明你能胜任此项工作。如答:"根据我参加过的实习和与此相关的打工经历。我能胜任。"
4. "How do you feel about your progress to date?" Never apologize for what you have done. "I think I did well in school. In fact, in a number of courses I received the highest exam scores in the class." "As an intern for the X Company, I received some of the highest evaluations that had been given in years.

 

  4."对于你至今所取得的进步你是怎样看的?"绝不要对你以前的所作所为表示内疚。如可答:"我认为我在学校表现不错。事实上,有好几门功课我的成绩居全班第一。""在某公司实习时,我获得了该公司数年来给予其雇员的好几项最高评价。"

5. "What would you like to be doing five years from now?" Know what you can realistically accomplish. You can find out by talking to others about what they accomplished in their first five years with a particular company. "I hope to be the best I can be at my job and because many in this line of work are promoted to area manager, I am planning on that also."

 

  5."从今以后5年内你想做些什么?"你要清楚你实际上能胜任什么。你可以事先和他人交流一番。问问他们在某公司的头5年都做了些什么。如可答。"我希望能在我的职位上尽力做好工作,由于在同一领域工作的许多人都被提为区域负责人,所以我亦有此打算。"

6. "What is your greatest weakness?" You cannot avoid this question by saying that you do not have any, everyone has weaknesses. The best approach is to admit your weakness but show that you are working on it and have a plan to overcome it. If possible, cite a weakness that will work to the company's advantage. "I' m such a perfectionist that I won't stop until a job is well done.

 

  6."你最大的弱点是什么?"你不应该说你没有任何弱点,以此来回避这个问题;每个人都有弱点。最佳策略是承认你的弱点,但同时表明你在予以改进,并有克服弱点的计划。可能的话,你可说出一项可能会给公司带来好处的弱点,如可说:"我是一个完美主义者。工作做得不漂亮,我是不会撒手的。"

7. "What is your greatest strength"?" This is a real opportunity to toot your own horn. Do not brag or get too egotistical, but let the employer know that you believe in yourself and that you know your strengths. "I feel that my strongest asset is my ability to stick to things to get them done. I feel a real sense of accomplishment when I finish a job and it turns out just as I'd planned. I've set some high goals for myself. For example, I want to graduate with highest distinction. And even though I had a slow start in my freshman year, I made up for it by doing an honor's thesis."

 

  7."你最突出的优点是什么?"这是你"展示自己"的最佳机会,不要吹嘘自己或过于自负,但要让雇主知道你相信自己,你知道自己的优点。如可答:"我认为我最大的优点是能够执着地尽力把事情办好。当做完一件工作而其成果又正合我的预想时,我会有一种真正的成就感。我给自己定了一些高目标。比如说,我要成为出色的毕业生。尽管在大学一年级时我启动慢了些,但最终我以优等论文完成了学业。"

8. "What goals have you set and how did you meet them?" This question examines your ability to plan ahead and meet your plan with specific actions. "Last year, during a magazine drive to raise money for our band trip, I set my goal at raising 20 percent more than I had the year before. I knew the drive was going to begin in September, so I started contacting people in August. I asked each of my customers from last year to give me the names of one or two new people who might also buy a magazine. I not only met my goal, but I also was the top salesperson on the drive." No matter what question you are asked, answer it honestly and succinctly. Most interviewers are looking for positive statements, well-expressed ideas, persuasiveness, and clear thinking under pressure.

 

  8."你定过什么目标,你又是怎样达到那些目标的?"这一问题在考查你预先计划和以具体行动完成计划的能力。你可答:"去年在为我们乐队旅行集资而开展的一家杂志促销活动中,我定下的目标是比我前一年达到的再多20%。我知道促销将于9月份展开,于是我在8月份就开始联系人。我请求我前一年的顾客给我提供一个或两个可能会买杂志的新客户。我不仅达到了目标,还成为促销活动中销售量最高的人员。"总之,不管你在面试中被问到什么问题,回答都要诚实而简明。雇主大都希求明确的陈述,表达良好的想法,有说服力的言谈和压力 之下清晰的思路。

其他注意事项

 

  Always maintain eye contact with the interviewer. Show that you are confident by looking straight at the person. Eye contact may not get you the job, but lack of eye contact can reduce your chances dramatically. Most interviewers greet the applicant with a handshake. Make sure that your clasp is firm. Being jittery about the interview can result in cold, clammy hands, which create a negative impression. Therefore, make sure your hands are warm and dry. Before leaving, try to find out exactly what action will follow the interview and when it will happen. A shake hands as you say good-bye and thank the interviewer for spending time with you.
   和雇主要一直保持目光接触。直视对方说明你有自信。目光接触也许不会确保你得到这份工作,但缺乏目光接触,就会使你成功的机会明显下降。面试的雇主大都与应聘者握握手。要确保你的握手有力量。情绪紧张地来参加面试会使你伸出的手冰冷潮湿,会给雇主留下负面印象。所以,要让你的手温暖干燥。临走之前,争取问问面试后下一步该是什么,何时开始。道别时要握手感谢雇主花时间面试你。

My answer to Q5:
It's hard to say where I'll be five years from now. What's important to me is that I'm given an opportunity to assume as much responsibility as you'd be willing to give me. After five years, you can decide where I'll be able to make the greatest impact.

Virtual Interview - General(Q:Question A:Answer W:Why)Q:What do you do in your spare time?
A have a collection of model ships that I've built myself, and I like to work on them in the evenings or on rainy weekends. Also, for the last two years I've been volunteering at the local Children's hospital on Saturday mornings.
W:Great answer. Your pursuits are interesting and unique, and you show a long-time commitment to your interests and community.
Q:Tell me about yourself.
A:What would you like to know?
W:This is the best response. The question "Tell me about yourself" is far too open-ended to answer immediately. The interviewer may want to know about your career goals, your hobbies, who knows? When you ask the interviewer what he/she wants to know, you allow him/her to focus the question so that you can provide the kind of information he/she wants to hear.
Q f you are hired, how long will you stay with this company?
A:As long as the work is challenging and I have the opportunity to learn and advance, I see no reason to consider leaving. How long do you believe that will be?
W:"As long as the work is challenging and I have the opportunity to learn and advance" - this is the most important part of your response. Since no one can see into the future, you shouldn't give a more specific response. Asking the employer how long that environment will continue is also a good idea; it suggests the idea of mutual responsibility for your ongoing commitment.
Q:Where do you see yourself five years from now? (assume you’re a candidate who has not had managerial experience).
A:To be honest I think it's difficult to know now exactly where I'll be five years from now. Certainly, my main goal is to move forward and to get ahead. In order to do that I need to continue my learning in the areas that are essential to this company. This is something I really look forward to doing. Once I've done that I can define my goals more narrowly.
W:This is the best type of answer for a non-manager candidate because it shows that you’re willing to continue your learning and forward movement but that you are also flexible where you end up.
Q:What is your greatest strength?
A 'm efficient and I know how to get things done. For example, in my previous job I repeatedly met my targets within time and budget and within our quality standards. I was able to do this by planning ahead, prioritising and ensuring I was up to date with any of the technical changes.
W:This is a good, straightforward response. You know what you're good at; you sound proud of it; and it's a talent that's valuable in any job. You抳e also provided a concrete example and the relevant skills.

Q:What attracted you to this job?
A:I've been searching for a while now to find a company that had a business model and corporate philosophy like yours. I am interested in working for a company that provides products and services to the education market. My background is in this field, and my strength is in building relationships and solving problems. I am excited and interested in the idea of developing business relationships through e-commerce.
W:This shows research, a plan of action and intent, and an interest in what the company produces. There is also an indication that past behavior and experience match the needs of the employer. Energy and enthusiasm can be heard in this answer.
Q:What qualities do you think are important to this position?
A:To have a combination of technical and business knowledge and to be very results-oriented. My past record shows that I have those qualities and more. Because of my business acumen and technical know-how, the teams I have managed accomplished outstanding results, including booking more than 50 million dollars in online revenue.
W:By giving specific examples of how you measure against the important qualities, you are letting the interviewer know what value you have to offer.
Q:When have you been most motivated?
A:My first job was in a pre-IPO. I had to undergo some rigorous training to understand the product and customer. At the same time, we were actually working with the customer. It required a lot of self-direction and motivation. I thrived on the whole experience -- the discipline, the planning and the deadlines. It was a pressure cooker, but I got through it.
W:This answer gives a specific time and answers the question directly with full details. In the dotcom world, companies are looking for high-energy people who can demonstrate self-motivation, passion, energy and ability to cope under pressure.
Q:What are your salary expectations?
A:I really need more information about the job before we start to discuss salary. I'd like to postpone that discussion until later. Could you tell me what is budgeted for the position?
W:Postpone the discussion about salary until you have all the facts. You need all the information possible before making a decision. Not only should you consider base salary, but think about other factors that are important to you - benefits, insurance coverage, performance review, variable benefits, travel, training etc.
Q:Why did you leave your last position?
A:I've set some goals for myself and my career, and unfortunately I'm at a standstill in my current situation. I have begun to explore options available before I spend too much time in a job where I can't advance. My goal is to continue to take on new responsibilities and be a key contributor to the success of an online venture.
W:This answer indicates planning and thinking proactively. Sometimes things happen in careers that are out of your control, but, at other times, planning gives you more power over your future.
Q:Do you have any questions? (This is usually asked by the interviewer at the end of the interview.)
A:Yes, I do. Who are your financial backers? Who are the key competitors? Does the company have a plan for the IPO? What would you say is the best thing about your product/service?
W:It's important that you ask questions. In fact, in some cases they are listening to what you ask or don't ask. This is your chance to find out what they have to say about the company. You are interviewing them as much as they are interviewing you. Is this the best place for you? Listen to the questions they are asking you and formulate your opinion of them.
Q:Tell me about yourself and your past experience.
A:I have eight years of experience working in the IT industry. For the past two years, I have been working as a project manager for a dotcom. I am also PMI certified. My strengths are my client-relationship management skills, and my leadership ability. I'm looking for a team environment where I can join the excitement of building a company.
W:By emphasising specific examples of knowledge-based skills, transferable skills, and personal traits, you give the interviewer a summary or snapshot of yourself.
Q:What are your strengths and weaknesses?
A:My strength is my flexibility. As director of operations at a startup company, I've had to deal with and handle changes and new policies constantly. As far as weaknesses, I really enjoy my work, and sometimes I put in too much time on some projects. But by being aware of my tendency, I have learned to work smarter.
W:This answer gives specific examples of strengths -- not just the skill. One of the most important traits employers are looking for are the ability to be flexible and learn new things as changes arise. The weakness question is handled best by leading with a positive statement, slipping in a negative, and ending on a positive note.
Q:What experience have you had that qualifies you for this position?
A:I have experience working with e-commerce companies on the consulting side. I've managed teams and have strong experience with HTML and Java. My communication skills and business acumen are my strengths. I can wear many hats and believe I can bring added value to a team effort.
W:This answer provides the interviewer with a good idea of the experiences and skills you will bring to the position. In addition to technical knowledge, communication and teamwork skills can be critical to most jobs.
Q:How would your boss describe you and your work style?
A:First, she'd say I have a lot of initiative -- I see a big picture and do what has to be done to achieve results. Secondly, that I have business savvy -- I know the business side as well as the technical side. And thirdly, I have a high work ethic -- if I say I'm going to do something, I do it.
W:Not only did the answer give three positives, but it also gave reasons for the answers. By giving more detail, you give the interviewer a better look at how you think others see you and what you think is positive about your work style.

Here are good answers to some of the tougher questions asked in job interviews. If you can smoothly supply answers like these during the interview, you are bound to make a good impression.

1. What is important to you in a job?

Mention specific rewards other than a paycheck for example, challenge, the feeling of accomplishment, and knowing that you have made a contribution.

2. Why do you want to work for this organization?

Cite its reputation, the opportunities it offers, and the working conditions. Stress that you want to work for this organization, not just any organization.

3. Why should we employ you?

Point to your academic preparation, job skills, and enthusiasm about working for the firm. Mention your performance in school or previous employment as evidence of your ability to learn and to become productive quickly. If the job involves management responsibilities, refer to past activities as proof of your ability to get along with others and to work as part of a team.

4. If we hire you, how long will you stay with us?

Answer by saying along these lines: "As long as my position here allows me to learn and to advance at a pace with my abilities."

5. Can we offer you a career path?

Reply: "I believe you could, once I know the normal progression within the organization. Can you tell me about it?" The answer may be revealing.

6. What are your greatest strengths?

Give a response like one of the following: "I can see what needs to be done and do it", "I''m wiling to make decisions", "I work well with others," "I can organize my time efficiently."

7. What are you greatest weakness?

Identify one or two, such as the following:" I tend to drive myself too hard", " I expect others to perform beyond their capacities", " I like to see a job done quickly, and I''m critical if it isn''t." Note these weaknesses could also be regarded as desirable qualities. The trick with this question is to describe a weakness so that it could also be considered a virtue.

8. What didn''t you like about previous jobs you''ve held?

Discuss the things you didn''t like, but avoid making slighting reference to any of your former employers.

9. How do you spend your leisure time?

Mention a cross section of interests-active and quiet, social and solitary -- rather just one.

10. Are there any weaknesses in your education or experience?

Take stock of your weaknesses before the interview. Practice discussing them in a positive light. You''ll find that they are minor when discussed along with all the positive things you have to offer.

11. Where do you want to be five years from now?

Saying that you''d like to be president is unrealistic, yet few employers want people who are content to sit still. You might say, "in five years, I''d like to have my boss''s job. " If you can''t qualify for your boss''s job by then, you may not be the fright candidate.

12. What are your salary expectations?

If you are asked this at the outset, it''s best to say, "Why don''t we discuss salary after you decide whether I''m right for the job? "But if the interviewer asks this after showing real interest in you, speak up. She or he will probably try to meet your price. If you need a clue about what to ask for, say, " Can you discuss your salary range with me?"

13. What would you do if....?

This question is designed to test your reposes. For example: "What would you do if your computer broke down during an audit?" Your answer there isn''t nearly so important as your approach to the problem. And a calm approach is best. Start by saying, "One thing I might do is ..." Then give several alternative choices.

14. What type of position are you interested in?

Job titles and responsibilities vary from firm to firm . So state your skills instead, such as "I''m good at figure work," and the positions that require these skills , such as "accounts payable."

15. Tell me something about yourself.

Say you''ll be happy to talk about yourself, and ask what the interviewer wants to know. If this point is clarified, respond. If not, tell why you feel your skills will contribute to the job and the organization. This question gives you a great opportunity to sell yourself.

16. Do you have any questions about the organization or the job?

Employers like a candidate who is interested in the organization. so this is a perfect time to convey your interest and enthusiasm.
