Thanks a lot for this, I've been looking for this when I had to sollicitate for internship, but there was nothing in Dutch (I did manage to get the internship though). Never thought of looking into English things.
Now I was randomly stumbling (stumbleupon), and came across this. It's about the last bit of information, filling in the blanks of what I already knew. Only thing left is to practice somehow :)

The Restaurant Manager said...

These are all great questions. Awesome post.

Very annoying questions. I interview people a lot, and I must ask 6 of these dumb questions to fill in the spaces, and I tell the candidate that HR wants me to fill them up, then move on to the real thing; the details of what the job is in the first place.

jog your memory for some details that you can cite during the interview. recently asked about 3,000 hiring managers about interview blunders by job candidates, and 30% said "not offering specific answers to interview questions" was a common and detrimental gaffe.

This will surely help candidates studying Human Resource management. These are the standard questions from the average HR. Unfortunately they really don't relate to the jobs most professionals are looking for.

interview coaching said...

Often, when it is asked, the hiring manager is implying that it is necessary for the position or it could be in the long term. If it does not fit your lifestyle, state that.
