Questions you maybe asked at an interview

There are many different types of questions that can be asked during a job interview, but some common categories include:

Questions about you

  • What are your strengths and weaknesses?
  • How would you best describe yourself?
  • What skills have you developed from any work experience or previous employment?

Think about any positive feedback you’ve received and how your friends, family, and colleagues would describe you. Then practice explaining how they are relevant to the job role.

Questions about the job

  • What do you think the main tasks and responsibilities will be?
  • Are there any aspects of the job description that you’re not sure about?
  • Which parts of the job do you think will be most enjoyable/challenging for you?

Read the job description and pick out different tasks and skills that you think are a good match. Re-read it and identify anything you don’t understand and do some research. Look online for any apprentice case studies that the company has published to gain some insight into what the role is like.

Questions about the employer

  • What research have you conducted about our company?
  • Why do you want to work here?
  • What do you know about our products or services?

You don’t need to know everything about the company but showing an interest and making an effort to know the main products or services is important. Start by looking at the employer’s website, reading their latest news and following them on social media.
