Salary Questions

A question about what salary you’d like to be paid can be asked at some interviews. Requesting for a more or less salary could make you eliminated from the group of candidates requesting to have the job.

If that doesn’t work, you could ask for the salary range to understand better what to request for.

 

“Why Did You Leave Your Last Job?”

Sometimes, it is not comfortable discussing what made you leave your last job. For a question like this, honesty is key. If it was due to a bad encounter, say it truthfully and don’t over-dwell on the issue.  Answer by focusing on the positive side of you getting a new job. You could give answers in view of your intention to explore the new aspect of the industry. Speak positively about your past employers, no matter how rough your experience was with them.

 

“Where Do You See Yourself in Five Years?”

To answer this question, there should be a balance between you being ambitious and desiring to work in the company for a long period of time. Don’t give responses that make them think you have no plans of working in the company for long. You could as well answer by telling them you also want to contribute to the success, growth, and progress of the company.
