HI

The most stressful part of job interview is to get stuck in those questions which are generic in nature but nevertheless difficult to answer. Here is a few answers to those questions, that should help you.

01 Tell us about yourself?
For a long time, I would go around talking about my place of birth, education and work experience etc etc. Then I  realised how silly it sounds.
Interviewers want to know the candidates skillsets, strengths and achievements in the past and how these are related to the requirement of job.
For example: “I am really passionate about my work. Whatever I do I do it with full of my dedication, determination and devotion. I am working in insurance sales for last two years and that has given me a lot confidence and taught me the importance of time management and goal setting. I have been consistently achieving my targets for the last 3 quarters. I also have organized and been part of various road shows and counseling activity for lead generation”.

Revert with your feedback :-)

Regards,

Sanjay

Any interview is the biggest hurdle for a fresher, and at times even the experienced candidates don't do good at these, so the insight that you've put is good and the answers are also good and simple, so thanks for sharing the insight sanjay....

Most of us are comfortable considering our many faults and mistakes, but not many of us are quite so comfortable singing our own praises. To succeed at an interview we are expected to talk ourselves up, to present our very best side and take credit for our achievements - both as an individual and part of a group. ... thanks
