Tell me about yourself?
Start with the present and tell why you are well qualified for the position. Remember that the key to all successful interviewing is to match your qualifications to what the interviewer is looking for.
Why do you want to work at our company?
This question is your opportunity,thanks to the in-depth research you should do before any interview. Best sources for researching your target company is the corporate newsletter, its suppliers and worker, advertisements, articles about the company.
Are you willing to relocate or travel?

First find out where you may have to relocate and how much travel may be involved. Then respond to the question.

If there's no problem, say so enthusiastically.

Answer with a flat 'no' and you may slam the door shut on this opportunity. But what if you'd really prefer not to relocate or travel,yet wouldn't want to lose the job offer over it than you to keep your options open and your reservations to yourself in the early going, by saying, “no problem”

You have been with your firm a long time. Would not it be hard switching to a new company?

To overcome this objection, you must point to the many ways you have grown and adapted to changing conditions at your present firm. Highlight the different responsibilities you've held,new situations you've faced. Assure the interviewer, describe the similarities between the new position and your prior one. Explain that you should be quite comfortable working there, since their needs and your skills make a perfect match.

What are your goals?

Be ready to discuss your goals for each major area of your life: career, personal development and learning, family, physical (health),community service.

Be prepared to describe each goal in terms of specific milestones you wish to accomplish along the way, time periods you're allotting for accomplishment, why the goal is important to you, and the specific steps you're taking to bring it about. But do this concisely, as you never want to talk more than two minutes straight before letting your interviewer back into the conversation.

Why should I hire you from the outside when I could promote someone from within?

Example: "'In general, I think it's a good policy to hire from within " to look outside probably means you're not completely comfortable choosing someone from inside.

"Naturally, you want this department to be as strong as it possibly can be, so you want the strongest candidate. I feel that I can fill that."

The Salary Question ! How much money do you want?

Never lie about what you currently make, but feel free to include the estimated cost of all your fringes, which could well tack on 25-50% more to your present 'cash-only' salary.
You may asked about salary, respond by asking, I'm sure the company has already established a salary range for this position. Could you tell me what that is?

May I contact your present employer for a reference?

Express your concern that you'd like to keep your job search private, but that in time, it will be perfectly okay.

Example: My present employer is not aware of my job search and, for obvious reasons; I'd prefer to keep it that way. I'd be most appreciative if we kept our discussion confidential right now. Of course, when we both agree the time is right, then by all means you should contact them

Why are you leaving?

Make sure you've prepared a brief reason for leaving. Best reasons: more money, opportunity, responsibility or growth.
State honestly what you'd be hoping to find in a new spot.

(If you do not presently have a job.)
Never lie about having been fired. It's unethical  and too easily checked. But do try to deflect the reason from you personally.the result of a takeover, merger, division wide layoff, etc.,

What are your greatest strengths?

Prior to any interview, you should have a list mentally prepared of your greatest strengths. You should also have, a specific example or two, which illustrates each strength, an example chosen from your most recent and most impressive achievements.

As a general guideline, the 10 most desirable traits that all employers love to see in their employees are:
1. A proven track record as an achiever...especially if your achievements match up with the employer's greatest wants and needs.
2. Intelligence...management savvy.
3. Honesty...integrity...a decent human being.
4. Good fit with corporate culture...someone to feel comfortable with...a team player who meshes well with interviewer's team.
5. Likeability...positive attitude...sense of humor.
6. Good communication skills.
7. Dedication...willingness to walk the extra mile to achieve excellence.
8. Definiteness of purpose...clear goals.
9. Enthusiasm...high level of motivation.
10. Confident...healthy...a leader.

What are your greatest weaknesses?
Assure the interviewer that you can think of nothing that would stand in the way of your performing in this position with excellence. Instead of confessing a weakness, describe what you like most and like least, making sure that what you like most matches up with the most important qualification for success in the position.

Aren't you overqualified for this position?

Anything you can say to demonstrate the sincerity of your commitment to the employer. Example:Because of my unusually strong experience in ________________ , I could start to contribute right away, perhaps much faster than someone who have to be brought along more slowly.

Can you work under pressure?

Absolutely(then prove it with a vivid example or two of a goal or project accomplished under severe pressure.).
