Question 1 of 21
Why do you believe you are qualified for this position?
View Answers
How to Answer
When you are trying to sell yourself, you need to be very clear about why you are the best fit for the company, their mission, the job description, and expectations. First look at the qualifications the interviewer wants in a candidate from the job description. Think of some examples of how you embody these qualities.

For example, if they are looking for someone who has excellent customer service skills and you have never worked in customer service, think back on some of your volunteer experience or any work you have done with school organizations. Your communication skills count! If you have resolved conflict with teammates or classmates, talk about what you did and how you have handled challenging situations between friends.

Do you have reliable transportation?
View Answers
How to Answer
Even if you're not expected to drive for the job, you will need to have some form of reliable transportation. If you take the bus or ride a bike, that works too! Share that you have the means to get to work consistently and on time.

Question 3 of 21
What is your availability?
View Answers
How to Answer
Before you offer up your evenings and weekends, be sure that you are clear on what they need from you for this position. Typically the hours are laid out in the job description, but if it only says "part-time" or "full-time," you may want to respond first with, "What hours do you need me to work?" Once the interviewer has laid out the expectations, you can tell them, "That sounds great! I'm available on those days, and I can offer my weekends if I am needed as well."

You want to show them that you're excited about the job and that you are willing to make yourself available to work when they need you.
Question 4 of 21
What are your strengths? How will they help you in this new role?
View Answers
How to Answer
Since you are new to your career, it may feel impossible to know what your strengths are, when it comes to the workplace! What qualities do people often comment on when they give you praise or encouragement? Think of some of the words your peers or relatives have shared with you after a dance performance or after receiving an award. You might not realize it, but the goals you have already achieved, whether they be in sports or school, are examples that demonstrate your strengths.

You may be an excellent communicator or compassionate towards others. You may also be a fast learner and capable of adapting to different environments very quickly. Write down three primary strengths and see if you can think of examples of each one, to prepare for this interview question.

Some strengths you could mention are:

- Honesty
- Reliability
- Trustworthiness
- Patience
- Dedication
- Fortitude
- Loyalty
- Friendliness
- Energetic disposition
- Fast learner
- Versatility in interests or talents
- Creative minded
- Enthusiastic
- Natural leadership ability
Question 5 of 21
What do you hope to learn from this job?
View Answers
How to Answer
When deciding what you would like to learn from this job, be sure to refer to the responsibilities in the job description or the opportunities that this company proudly offers. Are you looking to learn specific technical skills? Maybe you want to be groomed into leadership, or learn more about their particular industry. Share one or two things that you are looking to get out of the experience, and be sure to express your excitement for this potential opportunity!

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
