Manage Discussion Entry
Hello Class,
Questions I was asked during an interview
Why did you choose our company etc. ?
What is your strength ?
What is your weakness ?
What will you bring to our establishment ?
Why do you need this job ?
Helpful : Be punctual, Always look at the eyes of the interviewed. Establish eye to eye contact. Respond to the question with self-confidence.
Unhelpful : Impromptu speech stutters and stumbles.
Eye contact, facial expression, and posture were among the nonverbal cues employed. All of these things were taught to me during an interview. Keeping good eye contact and a serious expression on your face conveys your enthusiasm and seriousness about the job interview. A job interview requires a professional appearance. You should dress in a professional or business-casual manner. My outfit consisted of a shirt with a short, fitted skirt. There was no room for error when it came to my skirt’s length and color choice. Gray and black were the predominant hues. In my opinion, interviews are best conducted in muted tones. In order to establish a positive working environment, the location of the interview is critical.
