Work History Interview Questions :
Questions relating about yourself
Tell me about yourself.
This is not an invitation to ramble on. If the context isn’t clear, you need to know more
about the question before giving an answer. In such a situation, you could ask, “Is there
a particular aspect of my background that you would like more information on?” This will enable the interviewer to help you find the appropriate focus and avoid discussing irrelevaneies.
Whichever direction your answer ultimately takes, be sure that it has some relevance to
the world of your professional endeavours. The tale you tell should demonstrate or refer
to one or more of your key behavioural profiles in action - perhaps honesty, integrity,
being a team player or determination. If you choose TEAM PLAYER (maybe you’re the star player on your team tennis group), you can tell a story about yourself outside of work
that also speaks volumes about you at work. In part, your answer should make the
connection between the two, such as, “I put my heart into everything I do, whether it be
sports or work. I find that getting along with teammates - or professional peers - makes
life more enjoyable and productive.”
Or you might describe yourself as someone who is able to communicate with a variety of
people, so give an example from your personal life that indicates an ability to communicate also at work. This isn’t a question that you can answer effectively off the cuff. Take some time in advance to think about yourself and those aspects of your personality and / or background that you’d like to promote or feature for your interviewer.
What are your negatives?
While talking about your negatives, ensure that you always talk about them as a positive
and not as something that will present you in negative light. For example, make sure
that you tell them about your habit of checking things on repeated occasions and not that you wake up late in the morning because you will come off as someone not punctual. You always need to remember that stating one’s negative is important but make sure it has to be done is such a subtle manned that they simply go disregarded.

As a follow up to being asked about your greatest strengths, you may be asked about
how your greatest strength helped your performance on the job. When you respond,
relate your strengths to both the job description and your ability to perform at ork. Here are sample answers.
