求職面試之前必看! 如何如答棘手面試問題..

Filed under: 阿A愛搞笑 — 阿A @ 08:52:25

這是阿A點MSN上的「Careers & Jobs」從中發現的. 很有建設性, 很有貢獻性也十足幽默的一篇文章.

下面這些問題, 大家在求職時一定都被面試主管問過. 看過這篇文章後, 大家若重新換跑道時, 就知該如何應付這種很煩的問題了.

阿A個人倒是覺得它的Don’t say部份才是全世界最妙的回答, 真的很想找個機會來試試, 看看面試主管會是什麼樣子的表情. 一定很爆笑. 也很有可能會馬上被警衛給架出大樓門外.


面試:「阿A小姐, 請問你覺得自己最大的缺點是什麼?

A:「擁有宇宙無敵, 世界第一的工作能力.」(這是事實.)


面試:「阿A小姐, 請簡單描述一下你自己.」

A:「自幼在住家附近的溪流看到魚兒奮力逆流而上, 受到啟發, 小魚尚知力爭上游, 更何況是身為萬物之靈的我們呢? 當下立定志向, 以國家興亡為己任, 置個人生死於度外, 為社會盡力, 為國家盡忠! 天下興亡, 匹夫有責. One for all, all for one.」(當然要挌一下英文, 表示阿A也是能跟國際接軌的知識份子.)


面試:「阿A小姐, 你為何想到本公司來?

A:「看能不能多撈點薪水, 混口飯吃咩.」(也是事實, 有誰離職是為了要比較低的薪資?)


面試:「阿A小姐, 別人眼中的你會是什麼樣的一個人」

A:「溫恭良儉. 向前走, 逆轉勝.」(講得好! 精簡意駭, 面面俱到, 字字鏗鏘有力.)


面試:「阿A小姐, 你為何要離開現在的工作環境?

A:「公司都是豬頭貧窮男, 因此想轉移陣地, 另起爐灶, 看看是不是能釣到多金男, 從此回家翹腳當貴婦.」(有夢尚水, 希望相隨啊~)

How to Answer the Worst Interview Questions


By Anthony Balderrama, writer

Job seekers – to put it mildly – don’t like interviews very much. Aside from having to dress up and worry about the firmness of their handshakes, applicants have to field question after question. No matter how much they fear unexpected trick questions, job candidates dread the most common ones above all others.


When it comes to the least favorite interview questions, "What is your greatest weakness?" is job seekers’ top pick, according to a recent MSN Zogby poll. Although it’s a common question, nobody knows what to say. If you’re too honest, you’ve just told the interviewer why you shouldn’t be hired. If you pretend you’re flawless, you look arrogant and still don’t get the job.


When you’re asked questions that seem set up to make you look bad, what are you supposed to say?


"What we don’t want is a lot of BS. We are looking for a realistic and accurate picture of a candidate," says Donna Flagg, workplace expert and the president of the Krysalis Group, a human resource and management consulting firm. "We want to see someone who thinks, not someone who is rehearsed or spits out sound bite after sound bite. Mostly, we want the truth."


To help you think critically about your answers so you can respond honestly and thoughtfully, here are five common (but tough) interview questions the Zogby survey respondents disliked most and how to respond to them.


Question: What is your greatest weakness?
Don’t say: "I’m such a perfectionist" or "I work too hard."
Instead: Think about areas where you can improve and figure out how they can be assets.
Why: If you try to conceal your past and refuse to admit to a mistake, you’re sending a red flag to the interviewer that you’re stubborn or that you don’t have the capacity to recognize your own flaws. "Be balanced; be human," says Ben Dattner, an industrial and organizational
psychologist at New York University.


Dattner suggests picking some areas where you have room for improvement and make them reasons you should be hired. If you didn’t have the opportunity to develop certain skills at your previous job, explain how eager you are to gain that skill at the new job. Also, point out how you’ve dealt with a past weakness. For example, if speaking in front of large groups once terrified you, mention the public speaking course you took to help you through it. This answer demonstrates your problem-solving skills and your willingness to learn.


Question: Tell me about yourself.
Don’t say:
"It was a cold February morning when the doctor placed me in my mother’s arms for the first time…"
Instead: Give a brief overview of your career and qualifications in a few sentences.
Why: The interviewer doesn’t want to know about your first kiss and what your blood type is. Your answers should be a quick rundown of your qualifications and experience. Focus on your strongest skills and traits so that you make a good first impression. This question often prompts follow-up questions, so if you cite
creativity as one of your best traits, be prepared to give examples of how you have demonstrated it in the past.


Question: Why do you want to work here?
Don’t say: "I’ve maxed out three credit cards and need a paycheck ASAP."
Instead: Articulate why you want the job and why you’re a good fit for the
Why: A chief mistake job seekers make is focusing on selling themselves to the company and failing to prove why the job is right for them. It sounds narcissistic, but it’s not. Dattner suggests asking yourself: "Why is the job right for you and why are you right for the job?" The question helps you give the right answer because you prove that you’re in this for more than the paycheck.


Question: How would others describe you?
Don’t say:
"They would say I’m the best you’ll meet and you’d be stupid not to hire me."
Instead: Answer honestly.
Why: "With regard to what others say about you, this gives a lens for the interviewer to use to see characteristics and attributes that the individual being interviewed may not be aware of," Flagg says.


You should always be asking for feedback from your colleagues and supervisors in order to gauge your performance, Danner advises. Then when you are job hunting, you can honestly answer the question knowing you’ve improved your performance based on the feedback. If you haven’t asked co-workers for their opinions, start now with past and present colleagues so you can answer this question honestly. It might also help you discover what your strengths and weaknesses are.


Question: Why did you leave your last job?
Don’t say: "Gee, there were so many reasons I got out of that hellhole."
Instead: Take your time to answer this question, Dattner says. "If the interviewer thinks you are rushing through it, there’s a problem."
Why: This is your chance to talk about your experience and your career goals. Don’t badmouth a former boss or explain why you were just too good to stay at such a menial job. Instead, focus on what you learned in your previous position and how you are ready to use those skills in a new position. Detail the path you want your career to follow while illustrating how this job is right for you and how you’re right for the company.
