How to Answer
Maybe you are a good decision maker or maybe you are not. How do you rate these skills? Will it convince the interviewer if you rate your decision making and problem solving skills as 10 or will it be ok if you act humble and rate yourself as a 5? It might be difficult when it comes to rating yourself but here you are and you have to do it, so make sure that you do it right. Be honest and not too critical. The best way of answering this question is to support your answer with some facts from your professional life or some feedback given by some of your colleagues regarding these skills.

Question 2 of 25
What are the primary responsibilities of a surveyor?
View Answer
How to Answer
This question should be very simple as you are from the same profession and thus knowing about the primary responsibilities should be simple. Here is a small sample list of tasks that a surveyor usually handles:
- Mapping the area
- Making computations regarding the land and taking photos as evidence
- Making drafts and mapping onsite measurements
- Determining land size and measurements
- Advising and providing information for guiding the work of engineers and workers
- Surveying water channels or land for determining the routes to be followed
This is just a sample and you can always add your own ideas to this list or modify it according to your own job responsibilities.
Question 3 of 25
Why did you choose a career as a Surveyor?
View Answer
How to Answer
The motive of this question is to understand if you are really motivated to be a surveyor or is it just a second choice of career for you? The answer to this question has a lot of importance in this case as being a surveyor requires a lot of hard work and patience involving many hours of work outside the office in scorching heat or cold weather and a lot of paperwork as well. Someone who is not really motivated to do this work might wither off quickly and may end up leaving the job very soon. In which case the hiring manager may not be really interested in hiring and training you for the job.
Talk to the hiring manager a bit about the path that brought you here, what do you like and enjoy the most about this job and any other positive points of this job that you may want to mention. You can also go through the job description and pick some interesting bits just to make your answer more appropriate but make sure it doesn't sound like something you just said in order to impress the hiring manager.

Question 4 of 25
How would you rate your organization skills?
View Answer
How to Answer
Of course you are out to impress the interviewer so you will want to say 'exceptionally high, a 10 out of 10'! Unfortunately, the interviewer will see straight through that and know that everyone is fallible! If you are just starting out from school or college, think of something you did for organizing some event at the school or the college. If you have more experience in the work force then think of something that you would rate as organizational, where you stood up to the plate and maybe took control of a certain situation that was going pear shaped and you were able to represent your company in the best possible light. Maybe a more safe answer would be a seven out of ten and then there is always room for improvement!

Question 5 of 25
Tell me about your apprenticeship? What are a few things you learned that really stand out?
View Answer
How to Answer
This questions focuses on finding more about you and your personality. The interviewer wants to know how do you interact with your colleagues and seniors and how do you react to criticism if any. An apprenticeship is full of learning experiences and some criticism which might be positive as well as negative. What were the things you learned during your period of training and whether it helped in shaping you as a better surveyor is being asked here.
For answering this question start by telling the interviewer about how long was the apprenticeship period, what were your responsibilities, anything that you really liked, and anything that you feel thankful about learning during those days.
Try to be positive in your response, and don't show any signs of dislike towards your team members or your boss. You might want to show yourself as a good team player and employee with this answer.

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.
