The purpose of this page is to help you prepare for your job interview. We do this by creating interview questions that we think you might be asked. We hire professional interviewers (people with multiple years of experience interviewing candidates) to help us create our interview questions and write answer examples. We do not have advertisements on our pages but we do try to make money through paid-memberships.
“During college, I completed a couple of jobs for friends who had small business requirements. One client was looking for a solution to manage contacts and client information as he was using only a manual spreadsheet. I researched appropriate CMS platforms and advised him on what I thought would best suit his needs. I then went through a mapping process, understanding what he needed the software to do. I customized fields which required basic coding skills, and provided process guides for how he should best use the software going forward.”
“Not too long ago I had to do a company-wide Windows 10 installation for one of our clients. I planned the installation with my team; we briefed all 50 employees on what to expect during the installation, and how long we expected the install to take. The project ran seamlessly, and I believe this was because we communicated so clearly along the way with all parties.”
Our interview questions and answers do not represent any organization, school, or company on our site. Interview questions and answer examples and any other content may be used else where on the site. We do not claim our questions will be asked in any interview you may have. Our goal is to create interview questions and answers that will best prepare you for your interview, and that means we do not want you to memorize our answers. You must create your own answers, and be prepared for any interview question in any interview.
The interviewer is looking for specific technical knowledge. Be sure to answer specifically and demonstrate your full understanding of these technical tasks.
Product managers are sometimes called the “CEO of a product.” But what is a product manager really and how you do you land this role? This talk will discuss what a product manager is, how the role differs across companies, what sort of experience an aspiring PM should cover, and what the PM interview is like and how to master it. This will not be your fluffy be-your-best talk; it will tackle the specific types of interview questions and how to handle them.
What are your salary expectations?
While salary discussions should be avoided unless prompted, its important to be aware of the value of someone with your skills. Indicate that you are willing to be flexible for the right opportunity and confirm that you value the position highly. “All too often, problems arise from salary expectations being either too high or far lower than what a company is willing to pay for” says Asia.
If a guideline salary has been provided with the job description, mention that it is around the amount youre looking for, reinforcing why you think you are a good fit for the role.
Tell me about yourself / your past work experience
What seems like such a simple question can sometimes be one of the toughest to answer for most professionals. As it is often the opening question for interviews, it is one of the most important since first impressions are key. When asking this question, the interviewer is looking for an answer that is pertinent to the job youre interviewing for.
“Avoid sharing too much information or too little. Focus on delivering a one to two minute advertisement for yourself, highlighting key achievements in your employment history” says Asia.
Know your CV inside out and start with an overview of your highest qualification then run through your past jobs. Give examples of your achievements and the skills youve developed in your career so far.
“Keep your answer brief – the interviewer will ask you to expand on any areas where theyd like more information.”
