    Hi, as far as i think, your ans could be…

    1. Why do u looking for change.
    Hint : this is very common question, you can just say “for better prospect”,
    but dont stop here, they hate this answer, u need to be little bit honest
    about it. u can explore this word, like better prospect is composed of mainly
    two things viz. a) Groth and b) Money. rest explanation is up to you.

    2. what is the work of team leader.
    a) Work distribution within his/her team.
    b) Keeping track of work progress for every individual team members.
    c) providing backup if necessary.(in terms of technique or references).

    3.what do u like to be after 3 years
    The ans of this question is all upto your profile, trade, and your Goal.

    Hi,

    I had recently faced an interview panel of Satyam Computers,
    The tech interview was fine, but the HR interview was on personal ego… the HR guy of satyam was a pissed person and it seemed that he was a big failure n life that reaally made me feel that he doesn’t had anything to do with my technical abilities and cool and charming personality.. what he tried to show was that i beg in front of him for a job which i didn’t do and so i was not selected.
    i hope this is just an idea other wise HR people are the people wo care for you.

    hi i am preeti, i have an experience of 5 years in customer care and marketing .for last 2years i am not working and doing MBA in HR .now i want to join in HR . i would like to know what kind of question they will ask me .
    and what is the answer for question like:

    1) why are you changing your field when you alredy have 5 yr experience in Mkt.

  12. ramesh
    Posted 10/17/2005 at 1:33 pm | Permalink

    no company will allow you to ask questions and if such questions are asked its shows that u r interviewing both the interview and the HR and many companies do not tell the truth folks, better to get know through ur friends who are already working or do lots of r&d about the company, like
    a. how long its in market.
    b. their major clients.
    c. customer satisfaction index.
    d. partners/ channel partners.

    After all ur work is not related to any of these above questions, ofcourse u need to keep in mind that company goals and mission are important.

    Touch ur heart and say me how many have been loyal to their company. This includes even the CEOs etc…

    Think Think business is important but healthy one.

    Hi All,

    Whenever you are sitting for interview, always try to look in to the eyes of the interviewer when talking to him. It shows your level of confidence.

    Secondly, never argue with the interviewer. In case, you do not like something or you are sure that the interviewer is wrong somewhere then never point him and try to azvoid that situation. However, when you are employed then you can get to know the things on your own.

    Regards,
    Sanju

    Hi all,

    i’m seeing a couple of questions moving around , i will again say that the interview process followed by these companies are not good and at time biased,
    i feel that they should have a change in the overall selection procedure so that companies go back with the best brain, the people with abilities and not
    do- nuts to fill the workspace.

    so with your questions.

    ** for Renuka padhi
    1. Why do u looking for change.
    because change is inevitable.
    2. what is the work of team leader.
    why u don’t know or what.
    3.what do u like to be after 3 years
    on top of the world.

    ** sudhir please do not repeat

    some help….

    hai could u plz help me how to answer this quetion
    1.”Y u shifted frm ur own back ground to software”
    and how should one convince the hr when he came up with the que like
    –ans– why is it not allowed or what.

    2.”what is the gaurantee that u will continue in software industry
    and u may shift to ur back ground saying that u lost intrest in software ” .
    –ans– ok fine , what is the guarantee that i’ll not be fired off, or the company doesn’t close down forever and
    if you don’t pay me handsomely and show me growth ,what else i’m left with rather than switching back to my own pitch.

    3.”How u fit for TCS” and “y TCS”
    –ans– thats for u to decide nut, i my say mattered , than i would have certainly asked you to give my offer letter as fast as you can.

    ramesh says,
    no company will allow you to ask questions and if such questions are asked its shows that u r interviewing both the interview and the HR and many companies do not tell the truth folks, better to get know through ur friends who are already working or do lots of r&d about the company, like
    a. how long its in market.
    b. their major clients.
    c. customer satisfaction index.
    d. partners/ channel partners.

    so can you tell me ramesh .. if i can ask these companies …

    Infosys, Accenture, Caritor, Cognizant, Wipro, Satyam, Kanbay, Tata Infotech, CTS, Virtusa, TCS…

    what kind of innovation do they have ..

    and especially what has satyam, infy,tcs ,wipro, cts have to do with innovation anyways.

    and yes the best tip, when you in …

    think that you have the job just go inside hav fun talk around and ask for a salary hike .

    thats it and u r done.

    hello everybody…

    After being rejected by TCS & MBT..I had been preparing for HR interviews.
    But this time after clearing 4 rounds (out of 6)of Avaya India Ltd. including HR, apti, technical written, technical INterview, HR, & finally MR., Iam rejected in HR round(5th one).

    The possible reason as I think could be qustion over my INterest in Music.I can play any instrument.
    He asked me “why u dont choose music as a profession ?” & I said Iam not classically sound. HIs next fire was “why not learned classical music ?”
    I replied-”I came t know this at the end of 6th sem that to be a professional classical music is must. But later on I was busy with my project in 7th sem & couldnt get time to learn it.”

    Can u tell me wat could be the possible reason for my rejection as far as this question is concerned?

    One thing more…HE asked my strengths & I told”consistency & my urge to perform better & better.” Is threr any contradiciton between these two? I showed him the reason for my second strength.

    Plz clear my confusion..that could help me in further interviews.

    with regards

    Dear Abhishek,

    I read ur mail and I am sorry for ur not making in ur interview.hey boy cheer up best is at to come.

    About what u asked I feel that u didnot answer it properly.Becuase u said music was ur hobby not a passion. We can live happily if me make our carrer in things in which we are passionate for.For example everyone is interested in listening to music but everyone cant be become a musician since its there interest not a passion.

    About our weakness and strenghts u must be true and honest.U used the word better and better did u explained it to him.

    Thats I am wanna say u my friend.I hope it will help u

    Posted 6/23/2006 at 5:01 am | Permalink

    Dear Renuka,

    I saw ur mail and I am saying what I feel I hope this will help u.

    1. Why do u looking for change.
    u can say I am changing for improvement and to face more challenges then what is in my present job or field

    2. what is the work of team leader.
    the work of team is leader is see that the work is goin on according to schedule.He must take care of people working under him,support them,encourage them.He must also inform to his higher officials abt the work and workers.

    Add some more like this from technical point of view

    3.what do u like to be after 3 years
    This is the questions which tell how much well prepared ur and how much planning u do.No matter in whatever position u enter u will be new to the compnany.So first of all I would like to be liked and permanent employee.Then gradually earn my experience and increase my knowlegde and the importance of mine to the organization.So probably from three years from now I would like to be TEAM LEADER.

    1) career expectation.
    2) why u like to join our company.

    Dear Parteek,

    The answers abt ur questions I feel

    1)career expectations……to this never give answer such as to be in top most position directly at the beginning.Eventhough everyone wanna be that, the HR person will test abt ur future ideas.So tell something like I would be joining the company as fresher so I expect to earn some nice experience and become a permanent employee and increase my importance in the company.Then probably Team leader,Project Leader ,Project Manager…so and probably one day I end up as key important decision maker.

    2)Why u wanna join our company…this tells how much research u have done abt the company.So do alot of research(which u can get by visiting there website) and then tell how the company may be in according to ur objectives and goals.Mainthing tell what and how u can be useful aspect to the company

    I believe most of the questions mentioned above will show your incompetence if asked to the HR person. Please do your own research thoroughly and you will be able to answer most of these questions. Some of them do make sense in asking but most of them should not be asked to the HR person, it will show that you don’t know much about the company you are applying to and furthermore it shows you have not thought hard about applying to that company.

    WHENEVER ANY INTERVIEWER ASKS YOU THAT WHY SHOULD WE HIRE YOU THEN SIMPLY SAY’”AS I HAVE DESIRED QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE AND MOREOVER I AM very CONFIDENT TO DO SAID WORK AND HARDWORKER ENOUGH,THAT’S WHY I THINK I AM FIT FOR THE SAID POSITION.” YOU CAN ADD MORE LIKE YOU ARE GO-GETTER,MOTIVATED AND CO-ORDINATED OR CO-OPERATIVE IN NATURE ETC. THESE SKILLS WILL HELP YOU! ALSO IF HE ASKS YOU THAT WHAT IS YOUR WEAKNESS THEN ANSWER IN SUCH A WAY THAT IT BECOMES YOUR STRENGTH i.e. ” I AM VERY IMPATIENT IN NATURE AND VERY CRITICAL ABOUT MYSELF.WHENEVER ANY WORK GOES WRONG BY ME I CRITICE MYSELF AND DO AGAIN UNTIL IT COMPLETES!” YOU CAN ADD MORE BY TAKING ANY HINT FROM THIS LINE.

    TAKE CARE FOLKS,

    Hi Mr. Ajit,

    Please need not to be afraid of such type of questions. The interviewer is just like normal human being and will not eat you dear! Have confidence in yourself and if he ask you such type of question i.e. Tell me about yourself then dear start like this,” Sir myself____ and i have done graduation from____ (More Education, you can add)and i have____years vast or strong experience in the area of marketing/HR/Finance with___company. My big achievement is____ in this company (If you have any). I believe in this that Never say die spirit. I am a go-getter and co-operative in nature. I am a good listener and hard worker also! I can perform very well also in stiff conditions. I can change myself according to time! That’s all about me, sir!” Look these lines shows your capabilities and strenghts and too much! But please dear, never speak about your family until it asks! Again if question is why u want a change then simply say,” Sir, Just for better prospectus and growth and moreover i want to be mentally strong by working with your esteemed company as i think your company will provide enough help to me to tackel the challenges which are necessary for the growth of any company as well as for their employee.” Look these lines show your carefullness towards that company!! Your answer should be there in that question in which it is asked that why u wanna to change your company and that is,” Sir As i think in my previous company all is well there but still i was feeling that there was lack of co-ordination. Sometimes i was under pressure when i had to solve my problem from my colleagues.” But dear please never-3 criticise your previous employer. It will give false impression about yourself. And in expected salary’s qestion; your first answer should be,” Sir as per company norms!” But if again this question he asks then simply say,” Sir look i was drawing Rs—- Per month and hence it should be more than that or it should be in this criteria. For eg. if you are drawing Rs.8000/- per month, then you should say in between 8000-12000. Then it can be negotiated!
    Dear, Need not to be afraid of such type of questions. You should be already prepare yourself by taking the help of your friend or by taking help of any member of your family. Or you can prepare yourself by standing in front of mirror! HR person is very sweet in nature and helps you many times when he looks that you are feeling nervous on any question. He immidiately changes your attention from that question and asks you that question in such an easy way that you don’t feel hesitation and give anser so easily!!!!
    Dear, and about your family, then it is easy. I think everyone can give this answer immidiately and you also can!!!
    You should be attentive,presentative and always in formal dress in any interview!

    Take care and wishing you all the very best!

    I had a negotiation of my salary recently with one HR- person of a reputed company. He was agreed to pay me close to what I asked. But they are offering a pay structure wherein my Basic Salary and PF deduction is getting reduced. Although, it fulfills my desired monthly salary as they are offering Large amount of variable Pay.

    Is it advisable to change my job just on the basis of seeing my monthly take home salary? Or if really Basic and Gross Salary does matter.

    HI JAYDEEP,

    HOW ARE YOU DEAR? FIRSTLY I JUST WANT TO TELL YOU THAT I AM ALSO AN HR PERSON!

    NOW DEAR IF YOU ARE THINKING THAT YOU SHOULD CHANGE YOUR PRESENT JOB ON THE BASIS OF SALARY STRUCTURE THEN I MUST SUGGEST YOU ONE THING— IF YOU THINK THAT IT IS A GOOD PACKAGE THEN YOU SHOULD ACCEPT THIS BUT BUT BUT BUT FIRSTLY YOU SHOULD COMPARE ALL OTHER THINGS i.e. SERVICES OF THE COMPANY, TRUSTWORTHINESS OF THE COMPANY, YOU MUST HAVE SOME KNOWLEDGE OF YOUR NEW EMPLOYER BY TAKING HELP OF ANY CLOSE FRIEND OR ANY EMPLOYEE (WHO IS YOUR CLOSE) OF THAT COMPANY OR BY SECURITY GUARD JUST FOR HIS/HER BEHAVIOUR WITH OTHER EMPLOYEES ( IT IS VERY COMPULSORY )!!! ALSO GET SOME MORE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT CONDITIONS OF WORK OR ENVIRONMENT OVER THERE ‘COZ IT MAY HELP YOU IN CHOOSING RIGHT OPPORTUNITY. HUMMMM!!!!
    BUT TO ME, IT IS A BIG MISTAKE IF WE ARE CHANGING OUR JOB JUST ON THE ISSUE OF SALARY! JUST TELL ME DEAR, DON’T HAVE YOU FAITH UPON YOURSELF??? IF YOU DO WELL IN YOUR PRESENT JOB THEN I AM SURE YOU WILL GET DOUBLE IN YOUR PRESENT JOB!! AM I WRONG???!!! LET WE ADMIT THAT YOU ARE NOT GETTING MUCH AFTER YOUR HARD WORK OVER THERE EVEN AFTER SO MANY YEARS, THEN IN THIS CASE YOU ARE FREE AND YOU MUST TAKE ANY STEP!!! BUT TO ME IT IS NOT A WISE ACT UNTIL YOU COMPARE ALL OTHER THINGS TOO!!

    BASIC AND GROSS SALARY DOES NOT MATTER OFTENLY!!! THIS REALLY MATTERS HOW MUCH CONSCIOUS YOU ARE IN CHOOSING RIGHT PLACE AND RIGHT OPPORTUNITY!!!

    BEST WISHES DEAR!
