Sample HR Questions (and how to answer them)

Sample HR Questions (and how to answer them)
Here are some extra questions that you need to be ready to answer if you want to ace your interview.
  1. Why do you want to work in this company?

    Your Answer Should: Involve your experience with the company, if any. It should be honest and also make the interviewer know that you have done your research on the company.
  2. What are your hobbies? (Also be prepared for - why you like a particular hobby?)

    Your Answer Should: Be true. It should reflect you as a person with interests. Hobbies tell a lot about a person. So think carefully while answering this one.
  3. What are your strengths and weaknesses?

    Your Answer Should: Tell the truth yet not sound either boastful (while mentioning strengths) or self critical (while mentioning weakness). Try not to mention more than one weakness. If you go on and on about your many flaws, the interviewer may think that you lack self esteem and are under confident.
  4. Where do you see yourself five years from now?

    Your Answer Should: Not be boastful and full of fluff. Do not use terms like” I see myself as CEO of a prestigious company, etc.” It is safer to stick to a practical answer. Something likes “I see myself working in the same area of expertise but at a more responsible position”, etc. will reflect honesty and loyalty to a field of experience.
  5. Tell us / me something that your résumé does not cover about you?

    Your Answer Should: Emphasize on your extra curricular activities where you have shown leadership abilities, team spirit and individual responsibility. It should cover arenas that you have not mentioned in your résumé. It could be a personal interest that you pursue like a passion for photography, etc. or it could be a foreign language that you are currently learning. Along with that you should make it a point to talk about why you were part of that activity.
