Q:

What areas would you like to further develop professionally?

Answer

Why they ask this and what they are looking for:


 


This question "What areas would you like to further develop professionally?" will uncover whether you are interested and knowledgeable about your own development and as such will can be a cloaked attempt to discover your weaknesses.


A common target of the question is to discover how motivated you are to extend yourself. If you are motivated to learn, then you are probably more motivated to do the job well.


 


How to answer this:


First show that you are concerned and active about your own development. You can indicate how development has worked for your in the past.


You're right, continued learning and development is important and I continue to work to improve key skills.


Do answer the question, of course, but do not show gaping holes in your skill set and especially those in key areas required in the job. A good trick is to talk about developing your skills in new areas that will be of future benefit to the company.


 


For example : I am in programming now and love the work, but one day I would like to develop into a management role.


 


Hope this helps you..!

Q:

What do you do to improve your knowledge?

Answer

When an interviewer asks "What do you do to improve your knowledge", because it reflects the major thought process of a person and the way a person gains knowledge and the level to which one is accustomed to the current happenings in the world.


In my sense knowledge is not very much obtained through books or any websites. We can give some exercise to the brain so that we can gain knowledge.


It is essential to update oneself in order to cope up with this competitive world. First of all you should keep yourself updated with the new technological developments so that if the interviewer asks something concerning the current affairs, you can answer them.You can say that you visit various forums, blogs to keep yourself updated and improve your knowledge. It will be helpful if you have experience of such forums or blogs from before so that you can create a better impression in the minds of the interviewers.


It is said that interacting with people of different ages, different communities and different education levels a person can fetch huge knowledge.

Q:

Have you ever hired anyone? Why did you choose them?

Answer

If you have hired one or more people during your career, your answer might go something like this:


     " Yes, I have hired people.I have also decided whether some internal applicants were right for jobs in my department. The first time I hired someone ,I concentrated on checking off all the right qualificatios.I just went down a checklist.


        Since then,though, I've learned that some candidates who became excellent workers didn't necessarily have every qualification on that checklist.They more than make up for what they lacked in the beginning with enthusiasm and a willingness to work with others".


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


If you've never hired anyone? Show the interviewer you appreciate that he or she is trying to evaluate both your management potential and people skills,and try something like this:


     "Not realy,but on several occasions I was asked to speak to prospective applicants and offer my opinion. Ofcourse , in those cases, I was trying to determine whether that person would be a team player and if he or she would get along with the other people in the department."
