  • 01 Tell me about yourself
    Be prepared to talk about yourself. Talk about what interests you have and what you enjoy. Also talk about your career goals and any experience you may have already had in the workplace.
  • 02 What do you consider to be your most significant accomplishment?
    Discuss your achievements at school or in the workforce and the dedication you have applied to achieving good results. You may want to tell a detailed story about the specific project or task that you are most proud of, especially if it highlights skills relevant to the position you are applying for or your interest in industry.
  • 03 Why do you believe you are qualified for this position?
    Pick two or three main factors about the job and about yourself that are most relevant. For example, if you are applying for a carpentry position you could discuss your personal accomplishments in related jobs or tasks or hands on projects that you have enjoyed.
  • 04 Can you describe a situation where you have used your initiative?
    People with a strong initiative don’t have to be told what to do. Give the interviewer an example of when you completed a task without having to be asked or told.
  • 05 What do you consider your most significant strength?
    Know your key strengths and ensure they are in line with the position you are applying for. Discuss any skills and experiences that are relevant and that you enjoyed. What have those experiences taught you and how can they help fulfil the requirements of the position you are applying for?
  • 06 What do you consider to be your most significant weakness?
    Be honest, everybody has weaknesses and it is actually a good thing if you can identify them. You could explain that you have a more hands on approach to learning rather than through text books. The most important thing after identifying weaknesses is to explain how you are working towards improving them.
