When job hunting, whether you are prepared or not makes great difference. Here are some tips for job hunting interviews, the questions and the take cares: 1.Would you please tell me about your work experience? "work experience" is the type of work you've done in the past. If you haven't started working yet you can say "Right now I'm still a student." or "I'm a recent graduate and Ihaven't started working yet." 2.What's your greatest weakness? This is a popular question that employers like to ask to make candidates nervous! You shouldn't answer by telling your greatest weakness since you might not get the job! Instead, you can tell them something that isn't directly related to the job position. 3.Why do you feel you are qualified for this job? This question is a good opportunity to brag a bit. You should talk about some extra skills you have that maybe wasn't included in your resume, or talk about your greatest strength in more detail. 4.What kind of salary did you have in mind? Salary is how much money you earn, usually per year. When asked this, it's best to answer with a salary range or approximation and not an exact figure. This shows that you are familiar with the industry if you know what the approximate salary should be. 5.If hired, when could you start work? When answering this it's best not to say you can start right away. This might make you seem very desperate for a job. A safe answer would be "I can start at the beginning of next month." 6.What kind of work does the position involve? You can ask this to clarify exactly what kind of work you'll be doing.

Thank You for posting this thread. This is very useful especially for people whom haven't been to a job interview in a while. I am sure others will think that this is useful for them also.
