5 Common Job Interview Questions & Answers For Student

Congratulations! You're scheduled for your first job interview. You already know the importance of arriving on time, wearing neat, clean clothes and spitting out your gum. Here comes step two: answering those tricky interview questions. The following are some typical questions you might be asked. The whole idea of an interview is to talk about your positive traits. Don't worry if you don't have much job experience. You can simply tie in the answers to experiences at home or school. Employers want to know how you handle problems and if you are a team player.

Read the following answers carefully and adapt them to your particular situation.

QuestionTell me about yourself.

Typical answer: Well, I was born in Seattle, but we moved to Portland when I was three. I have a dog and like to swim.
Borrrrring! That answer doesn't tell the employer anything about you that relates to the job. You want to use every opportunity to show that you are a smart, hard working potential employee.

Better Answer: Last year in school, I played on the basketball and soccer team. It kept me busy, but I learned to manage my time. I'm also involved in volunteering with my sister's Girl Scout troop. That's been a great experience in learning how to work as a team with other leaders plus plan activities.
See what you've just done? You've shown the employer you are involved in positive activities, work as a volunteer and know the importance of teamwork. Who wouldn't want to hire you?

QuestionHow would your teachers describe you?

Average answer: Oh, I guess they'd say I was an OK student.

Better answer: My teachers would tell you I work hard to get my assignments in on time and I'm not afraid to ask for help if I need it. They'd also tell you I try to be friendly to shy kids in my class.

QuestionWhy should I hire you over the other 8 students waiting to be interviewed?

Average answer: I really need the money to buy a new CD player and my mom said I have to do something constructive this summer.

Better answer: I'm a reliable person. I'll arrive to work on time and do the best I can on the job. I've done volunteer work, but now I'd like to gain actual work experience. If you hire me, you'll get someone who isn't afraid to learn.

Question: Tell me about a time you had a problem and how you solved it.

Average answer: My parents and I don't always get along. I usually yell and then go to my room for a few hours.
Better answer: There was a boy at school that really bothered me. He bumped into me and would slam my locker shut when he walked by. He'd also say sarcastic things to me. I talked to a teacher about it and she offered to be a mediator. She brought both of us into her class and basically let me tell the boy I wanted him to stop being a bully. I confronted him in a strong way. The situation is much better now.

Question: What do you like best about school?

Average answer: I really like hanging out with my friends.

Better answer: I especially like working on projects together with my friends. I just got done being in charge of decorating for our school dance. I organized my friends and we worked together to set up the gym with a Hawaiian theme. I also like participating in school events like sports teams and student government.
There you have it. Five questions employers might ask you. Try to answer every question with a positive answer. Demonstrate that you are an honest, hard working person.
Good luck on that interview!

Procedure To Create N-Power 2017 Account, Verify BVN/Upload Data

N-Power registration has some slight adjustments from the first and these include.

1. The second phase registration is more of an interactive interphase. Applicants don’t just upload data and go, the test which erstwhile was written separately at a slated date will be written immediately by applicants to complete their registration.

2. BVN will be auto searched by site before proceeding to the next phase. If BVN exists then one is cleared to proceed. this development is not unconnected with series of problems faced with unmatched, incorrect BVN in the first batch registration.

NOTE: Based on the few points above, I would like to reiterate that prospective applicants should be fully involved and be physically present in the process of registration to proofread their info and write their test.

The issuance of forms in this phase will not be possible for obvious reasons, so I urge all to take this phase serious.
