Mr A
We all know those interview questions that everyone asks. Those questions that doesn't seem to have direct answers. Those ambiguous questions that make you wonder if the interviewer is intoxicated at that moment. Questions like:

(Question ...... Wrong Answer)
Tell me about yourself..... Hello? I just handed my resume to you. Can you at least look in it? Who knows, you might find something about me in there.
Why do you want to work for us?..... Because I need a job, and lots of money to go with it.
How much are you looking at?..... Millions. As much money as possible. You have a budget don't you?
Why do you want to leave your current job?.... I heard I could make more money working here.
Tell us your weaknesses and challenges..... Wait. Is this a trick question?
Tell us your strengths.... I'm the strongest guy you'll ever meet, trust me.
What do you like to do outside work?...... Groove and party all night.
What was your salary in your last job?...... Less than what you're going to pay me.
What questions do you have for me?..... How much is my salary please?

No, those are not the answers you should give to the interviewer even though you really want to. Sometimes they ask these questions to test your personality and verbal skills.

Job interviews are nerve-wracking, but preparing ahead of time can help you feel relaxed. Some interview questions are very common and will likely be asked regardless of the field your potential job is in. By going over common interview questions about your personality, professional development, and the job at hand, you can feel at ease for your big interview.

Tell Me About Yourself

The key to answering this question is to create a story about yourself and your career path. Tell a story of where you're coming from and where you are going. Try to make it concise and clear, and tell them about your future plans and goals. This would hep the employer understand what your aims are and how they can help you achieve them. For example you could say, "I attended Graceland University and obtained a Bachelors' degree in Crop Science, but after taking a course in Java at NIIT, I realised that software development is my true passion. That’s why I decided to go in another direction and intern at Microsoft Technologies. Now, I’m looking to take the next step in my career by focusing on my particular passion for programming at your software development agency.”
