25 Job Interview Questions Designed To Stump You


3. How does this position compare to others you are applying for?

The interviewers ask this question in order to know how active you are in your job search. You should openly speak about other positions you are pursuing, but you should not give too much away. An appropriate answer to this question is something along the lines of, “[…] There are several organizations with whom I am interviewing, however, I’ve not yet decided the best fit for my next career move.”

4. Can you name three of your strengths and weaknesses?

The interviewers ask this question to look for red flags and deal-breakers; such as not being able to work well with others, or an inability to meet deadlines. Keep in mind that exposing your weaknesses can hurt you, but it can also be made into a positive thing. They want to know that your strengths would be a great asset for the new position and that none of your weaknesses would be able to hurt your ability to perform well.
