20 Commonly Used Interview Questions and Answers



  When I went to apply for a job, I would look at these questions during the first test. Some questions were indeed asked by the interviewer, and I myself had been a first tester for half a year, and I would often ask these questions during interviews.


  Question 1: Why do you want to leave your current position?

  A. Other colleagues think that I am a celebrity in front of the boss, so they exclude me everywhere.

  C. The boss is unwilling to authorize, work is restricted everywhere, hands are tied, and it is difficult to do things.
  D. The company's operating conditions are poor, and everyone is in panic.

  Answer: More than half of the personnel directors choose C, followed by D. Choosing the answer of C can show the applicant's ambition, strong ability, and hope to be given more responsibilities. Choosing D is an objective external factor that cannot be changed by the individual due to the reason for resignation. Therefore, the interviewer will not have too much doubt about the individual's ability or work performance.

  Question 2: How much do you know about our company?

  A. In the last year, your company has been the king of stocks for as long as 8 months.
  B. Your company has been selected by XX Magazine as the No. 1 company in "The Most Wanted Enterprise for Job Seekers" for three consecutive years.
  C. It's not very clear, could you please give some introduction.
