Classic interview questions

Interview preparation


Every interview is different – the interviewer will have their own style (‘scary’ is not the default style, don’t worry!) and of course you will have an impact on the direction of the interview, too.

However, there are classic interview questions that come up time and time again that you can prepare for. Their wording might be different, but essentially, an interviewer wants to know:


  •  Why you have applied for the role?
  • What makes you suited to the role?
  • What will you bring to the role that is different or impressive?
  • Key examples of when you have demonstrated skills required in the job or person specification.
  • What kind of person you are – your strengths, weaknesses, interests and personality.
  • Questions on your work history.
