Answers for Basic Interview Questions?

Any interview irrespective of which field, position, profile it is these questions are faced for sure.

Basic Interview Questions with answers:

Tell me about yourself.
What are your strengths?
What are your weaknesses?
Do a simple analysis about yourself, and figure out what are you strength first. Post those as weakness, this is the strategic move. Always use you strength as weakness, for example, I say writing is my weakness, even for a job which need Writing reports is the highest preferred skill. Supporting it I say that's the reason I started a blog 2 years before to overcome it. Now the interview is diverted what blog is it? What do you write? How is the response? You have cracked half the interview.

Why do you want this job?
Never be desperate and at the same time not overconfident, in fact be desperately determined.  
It not wrong, if you hide the truth sometimes. Never reveal your actual financial backup, that would give wrong signals. Put yourself in normal, moderate situation.

Where would you like to be in your career five years from now?
Say that you want to climb the ladder, and reach the next possible position in the organisation, which would give hint to the interviewer that you want to stick to the company.

Possible Goof-ups: Want to start my own company, Want to be the VP/CEO of a company etc

Why should we hire you?
Because I am unemployed....  I used this answer in an interview to make the interviewer smile. 

It always better to take the interview on the lighter side, and humorous. But some times it doesn't work.
