31). Tell me about your ability to work under pressure.
You may say that you thrive under certain types of pressure. Give an example that relates to the type of position applied for.
32). Do your skills match this job or another job more closely ?
Probably this one. Do not give fuel to the suspicion that you may want another job more than this one.
33). What motivates you to do your best on the job ?
This is a personal trait that only you can say, but good examples are:
Challenge, Achievement, Recognition
34). Are you willing to work overtime? Nights? Weekends ?
This is up to you. Be totally honest.
35). How would you know you were successful on this job ?
Several ways are good measures:
You set high standards for yourself and meet them. Your outcomes are a success.Your boss tell you that you are successful.
36). Would you be willing to relocate if required ?
You should be clear on this with your family prior to the interview if you think there is a chance it may come up. Do not say yes just to get the job if the real answer is no. This can create a lot of problems later on in your career. Be honest at this point and save yourself future grief.
37). Are you willing to put the interests of the organization ahead of your own ?
This is a straight loyalty and dedication question. Do not worry about the deep ethical and philosophical implications. Just say yes.
38). Describe your management style.
Try to avoid labels. Some of the more common labels, like progressive, salesman or consensus, can have several meanings or descriptions depending on which management expert you listen to. The situational style is safe, because it says you will manage according to the situation, instead of one size fits all.
39). What have you learned from mistakes on the job ?
Here you have to come up with something or you strain credibility. Make it small, well intentioned mistake with a positive lesson learned. An example would be working too far ahead of colleagues on a project and thus throwing coordination off.
40). Do you have any blind spots ?
Trick question. If you know about blind spots, they are no longer blind spots. Do not reveal any personal areas of concern here. Let them do their own discovery on your bad points. Do not hand it to them.
