A variety of questions more often than not recur during interviews. Therefore, one needs to polish their responses before that Big Day. One should look into his/her CV, learn his /her work and educational history intensively and extensively and prepare some instant responses. Here are the four killer questions any job seeker should prepare for. 

1. Tell me about yourself

One should think critically and loud on a summary of their work experience and educational background that provide a snapshot of their top achievements. If you are a school leaver, let your interviewer know how your studies have prepared you for the job. 

2. Why should we hire you? 

Take this opportunity to showcase your strengths. Keenly study the job description and pinpoint valid and concrete examples from your education and career that can support your skills. 

3. What is your weakness? 

Always try to keep your answer positive. Acknowledge where you are short on skills but describe what you are doing to build on your strengths.

4. Why do you want this job? 

Serious homework needs to be done for this. One should browse the company's website, visit a store and get to know about their products. Take time to find out what the business does, how and where they do it and what they stand for and then explain how your career aims are a perfect match.
