Interview Questions:

What questions will the interviewer ask?

Can you tell me what interview questions I will be asked?

Of course we cannot be sure exactly what the interviewer will want to know but we do know the questions they are most likely to ask.

It helps to know what they are looking for in the right candidate. If we know that then predicting the questions is quite straight forward.

All employers are looking for evidence that you are the right candidate and in general their interview questions are designed to find out if ‘you are the one’.

They employers will be interested in:

  • Your skills,
  • Your experience,
