Top Interview Questions in 2023

Top Interview Questions in 2023

Every year, hiring managers seem to change the hiring process. They switch things up to keep interviewers on their feet. If you want to succeed in your interview, you should prepare yourself with a few of 2023’s most common interview questions. Here are some of the top questions of the year and how you should answer them.

What Makes You Different?

The way in which you answer this question sets the tone for your interview. Typically, a hiring manager asks this question because they want to know how you stand out. But you need to be cautious about your response. If you talk badly about other applicants, you’ll lose the employer’s respect. Instead of talking about others, discuss how you can be valuable to the employer.

This might sound easier than it is. Before the interview, prepare an answer to this question. Sit down and think about the job descriptions. Which of your skills translate well to that position? For instance, a job listing might emphasize cooperation with coworkers. You could talk about how many team projects you’ve worked on or how well you are at teamwork.  

Tell Me About Yourself

This one isn’t a question as much as a demand, but you can still expect to encounter it during an interview. When an employer asks this, they want you to describe why you would be a good fit for the company. What they don’t want to hear is how many kids you have or what you do on your weekends. If the employer has an interest in you, they’ll learn more about your personal life in another interview or after you get the job.

What About This Role Interests You?

If an applicant doesn’t have a clear understanding of the role or job description, they may not be the best prospect. Because of this, hiring managers often ask this question. They want to be certain you’re aware of the responsibilities that come with the role and that you would enjoy taking them on.

Once again, you can only answer this question well if you prepare before the interview. Right before your interview, read the job listing. Which duties interest you the most? Pick duties that play to your strengths, and explain to the hiring manager why you would enjoy and excel at these duties.

Why Do You Want to Work Here?

An interviewer asks this question because they want to know if you took the time to research the company. If a job applicant knows nothing about the company, they aren’t passionate about the opportunity. To impress the interviewer, research the company before the interview. When they ask this question, mention some of the details you came across.

You should also use this as a moment to discuss why you’re a good prospect for the company. For example, you may have discovered that the company’s mission is to help struggling teens. You could talk about how a close family member of yours struggled as a teen, and how your values align with the company’s.

What Motivates You?

No manager wants to have to babysit their subordinates. To avoid hiring someone who won’t take the initiative on their own, a hiring manager might ask a candidate what motivates them. Your answer to this question could make or break the job offer.

When you answer this question, be very specific. Use a real example to talk about a time when you had a large task and motivated yourself to complete it. Perhaps you reminded yourself how much you like to see a smile on your client’s face, or you remembered how much pleasure you take in increased productivity. In addition to talking about what motivated you in that particular instance, also explain the results.

What are Your Greatest Strengths?

Pick two strengths when you answer this question, and be sure to use one soft skill and one technical skill. If possible, use skills mentioned in the job description and provide examples of how you used those skills.

If you’re more introverted, you might find it difficult to speak highly about yourself. But to be successful in an interview, you need to be able to talk about your success. Before you go to an interview, give yourself a pep talk. Remind yourself that you’re worthy and capable.

What are Your Future Goals?

If a job applicant doesn’t have career goals, a hiring manager assumes that they’re not motivated. So, to make the right impression, you should show up to your interview ready to talk about your future goals. Be very ambitious and make it clear that the job you’re seeking would help you achieve your goals.

When you encounter this question, be mindful that the employer wants you to stay with them for as long as possible. If your future goal is to have a position that doesn’t exist in the company, the hiring manager won’t be happy.

How Do You Deal with Conflict in the Workplace?

No workplace is perfect, so you’re bound to encounter a conflict of some type. The hiring manager wants to know that you can handle conflict when it comes up. For this type of question, you should have a specific scenario in mind. Use the STAR method to create your answer.

As you explain the way you handle conflict, paint yourself in a positive light. Show the hiring manager that you can deal with conflict in a tactful and productive manner.

How Do You Define Success?

Everyone has a different definition of success. Your prospective employer wants to know how you define success because it will let them know if your beliefs align with the company’s beliefs. There are several ways in which you can answer this question. However you answer it, be honest. Don’t repeat something you read on the company’s website. Instead, talk about what success means to you.

By being ready for this and other questions, you can enhance your own success. You could be one question away from your new job.
