3 Most-Asked Interview Questions (and How to Prepare for Them)

Updated: 3 days ago

If you are in pursuit of your dream job, it helps to consider the most-asked interview questions. That way, you can plan ahead for these questions and how to respond to them. When any of these questions are asked during your interview, you can answer confidently — and boost the likelihood of landing your dream role.

What Are the Most-Asked Interview Questions?

The most-asked interview questions include:

1. Where Do You See Yourself in Five Years?

You don't need to be a fortune teller to predict getting asked where you see yourself in five years during an interview. But, if you know how to approach this question, you can give a response that is sure to impress your interviewer.

If you want to stand out when posed with this interview question, share details about your hopes and dreams with your interviewer. This enables you to show your interviewer what you are passionate about and what you want to accomplish in your career. It can also help you figure out if your career aspirations and interests align with those associated with a particular role.

2. Why Do You Want This Job?

There are many reasons why you may want a specific job — and you should expect to be asked about them during an interview. If you look beyond the obvious reasons why you are pursuing a particular role, you can give your interviewer a response that may convince him or her you are the right candidate.

When faced with this question, consider why you applied for the role in the first place. Look at the short- and long-term contributions you can provide in the role and how hiring you to fill the vacancy can benefit you and your prospective employer. In doing so, you can explain why you want a job and why a company should hire you for the role.

3. Why Should We Hire You?

You need to be able to describe why a company should hire you. Otherwise, if you are unsure about why you are the best candidate for a particular role, your interviewer is unlikely to feel confident about hiring you.

To explain why a company should hire you, it helps to highlight your skills and experience and how they align to the role you want. You can also explain how hiring you can help a business accomplish its goals.

Finally, regardless of which most-asked interview questions you receive, be honest with your interviewer. If you are honest, your true colors will shine throughout the interview. And if you are the best candidate for a role, your interviewer will take notice and do what it takes to add you to their team.
