The first question that may come to you is “Tell me about yourself”. This question is a very general question and it is in your interest to draw your limits for the answer to the question. When talking about yourself, you should be concise and concise, because as you extend the subject, the interviewer will be distracted. It is best to set a time between 1 minute and 3 minutes while talking about yourself. So, what should you answer to this general question in terms of content?

2. What is your Highlights for Hiring You?

This question is one of the deceptive questions that may come to you, attention 🙂 Generally, while the candidates answer this question, they highlight their GPA or university. However, this is not the answer that is expected from you, but the answer that is expected from you is the answer to the question “What could be the feature or skill that distinguishes you from other candidates?” At this point, the special conditions required in the job posting will be your biggest resource. For example, a special computer program that is sought in the job posting, a special work experience will take you one click away from other candidates.

3. Why Did You Leave Your Previous Job?

Most of us do not leave the work with a happy ending. My boss was a bad guy, I couldn’t get along with my boss, my boss was wearing me, my colleagues were gossiping. If you have a serious problem with your boss, you can soften it a bit and say, “We have disagreed with the top management”, but this disagreement can still be examined by the other party. One of the answers to this question may be answers such as lack of promotion and logistical problems. Finally, do not go into salary in this question; Answers such as my ex-boss was delaying wages, the salary was low, the salary was not satisfied, and this question will put you in trouble.

4. How Do You Define Yourself, Can You Say Your 3 Features?
