1. Can you explain what you know about us?

This question simply tries to determine if the person being interviewed has done their homework. An exceptional candidate will be able to deliver a lot of information about the company, but mostly this eliminates people who didn't even bother to do minimal checking – these are people we don't want. In other words, before you go to an interview, know what the organization is.

2. Tell me what do you see as the important future trends in this area?

This works well for some positions – technical ones and leadership ones – and not well for others. It should be pretty obvious from the type of job you're applying for whether this question might be asked. If it is, it's easy to prepare for – just spend a half an hour reading some blogs on the specific areas you're applying for and you'll have some food.

3. Tell us why did you leave your last position?

Mostly, this is looking for conviction of character. A strong, concrete answer of any reasonable sort is good here. “I wanted to move on” is not a strong answer. Downsizing is a good answer, as is a desire to seek specific new challenges (but be specific on what challenges you want to face). Minimize your actual discussion of your previous position here, as you'll be very close to a big opportunity to start bashing your previous position.

4. Why are you interested this position in Dietary Aide?

This is actually something of a trick question, because it's just a way of re-asking the second question (what you know about the company) and the fourth (what you know about the position). It's asked because it tells whether people give flippant answers to questions (things like “because I'm a people person”) or whether they think about things and give a genuine question. This is a good question to formulate an answer for in advance – basically, just come up with a few things that seem intriguing to you about the company and the position and reasons why they interest you.

5. Can you tell me what did you learn from your last position?

Although it's fine to list a technical skill or two here, particularly if your job is very technical, it's very important to mention some non-technical things. “I learned how to work in a team environment after mostly working in solo environments” is a good one, for example. There should be no job where you learned nothing, and the interviewer is expecting that you learned at least a few things at your previous employment that will help at your current one.

6. Explain me the position you're applying for?

This is a “homework” question, too, but it also gives some clues as to the perspective the person brings to the table. The best preparation you can do is to read the job description and repeat it to yourself in your own words so that you can do this smoothly at the interview.

7. Explain me what Is Your Weakness in Dietary Aide?

This is probably the most difficult questions to deal with during a job interview. The wrong response can alert the recruiter instantly that you aren't the right candidate for the job.

8. Tell us what Is The Best Vegetable To Eat?

All fresh vegetables are best for your diet; it comprises of all essential nutrients like fiber, potassium, folic acid, vitamin A, vitamin C and most important range of anti-oxidant, which can reduce the risk of cancer.

9. Can you about your dream job?

Never say this job. Never say another specific job. Both answers are very bad – the first one sends the warning flags flying and the second one says that the person's not really interested in sticking around. Instead, stick to specific traits – name aspects of what would be your dream job. Some of them should match what the company has available, but it's actually best if they don't all perfectly match.

10. Tell us how are your communication skills?

I am an active listener and a people oriented person. I like to help others when needed, maintain a positive environment, and leave people with constructive solutions. I am flexible about feedbacks and have the ability to share my thoughts and opinions with the respect of the team.
