Common Question during Interview

Common Question during Interview


is the common reason why many applicants failed on the first day of interview. And I believe that those HR personnel often look to the attitude of an applicant than that of his skills or educational attainment. You will be observed by them from the moment you entered the premises.

The questions most often asked in job interview, and how to answer them properly.

First of all you should be yourself always and avoid saying negative about you unless you were ask so, then you should tell first the positive then negative. Don’t you know that our brain sometimes pay attention on the first statement than on the second statement of what other people say to you. For example you were told by your friend that you are coward but somehow you are fighting for it, to against it. Your brain only record that you are a “coward” than the second statement that you are “fighting to be courageous”.
