When looking for a job, job interviews are inevitable, especially for fresh graduates who, most likely, will experience it for the first time. These interviews are mostly nerve-wracking, the fear of answering something wrong thick, and failure to impress your future employer could be the reason you get rejected for the job. Although studies show that job interviews are often misleading, it is still a widely used tool to assess a candidate if he or she is fit for the job. Through an interview, the employer could gain valuable insight into your personality and abilities, and it allows you the chance to discern whether your credentials and career goals match up with what the company looks for.
And, it is no secret that even with the different types of jobs out there, with different qualification standards, some questions are commonly used.
