10 common interview questions

The best thing that you can do to prepare is to think through the questions you’re likely to be asked and formulate answers ahead of time. Here are the 10 most common interview questions so that you can craft a strong answer to each

    1. Can you tell us something about yourself / Can you tell us something about yourself which is not mentioned in your resume?
    2. What do you know about the company/ firm or the opening?
    3. Why do you want this job / why do you want to work here/ why do you want to work in this field say, Audit or Tax or Finance, etc?
    4. Why should we hire you?
    5. What are your greatest professional strengths ?
    6. What do you consider to be your weakness?
    7. What are your hobbies? Depending on the hobby, follow-up questions can be asked like what kind of books you read or what kind of music do you listen to or what kind of sport do you play, etc?
    8. Where do you see yourself in five years?
    9. Elaborate on the nature of work you have done in your previous organisations?
    10. What is your current package/ CTC? What are your salary expectations from this job?

An honest and though through answer is the most recommended. We would also be updating this page to provide some guidance on how to reply to these questions shortly.
