Most Common Second Interview Questions




As you know that personal interview is generally the final step between you and your dream job, there are several rounds involved in this final step. You will not get the job opportunity immediately after clearing your interview. You will have to go through various rounds of interview and even tests for getting to your dream job. Once you have cleared your first interview, you are one step closer to the job. Now you need to prepare well for your second interview. Here we present you the second interview questions to help you in your second interview with the employer. 

Second Interview
When you receive a call from the employer for the second interview, it is quite clear that company is seriously interested in recruiting you and you are one of the prime contenders for the position. There may be some other candidates too. You need to impress the employer better than others and win the opportunity. The questions asked in second interview will obviously be different from what were asked in first interview. Hence, you cannot depend on your preparation for first interview and appear in front of the employer without preparation. Here are some second interview questions to help you prepare for this interview

Second Interview Questions

  1. You may find this job repetitive and boring as you have to do the same work every day. Are you ready to do such work on daily basis without any change or degradation in the quality of work?
    This is the most common question asked by most employers in second interview. With this question, employers want to see how you react and discover your level of motivation. Do not answer such questions in single line. For example, do not say that “It’s ok for me”. This is not the proper way to answer this question at this instant of time. Instead, you need to provide some evidence to support your words. When thinking of the answer for this question, talk of the past work experiences that are quite similar to the prospective work profile. You can explain to the employer that you have been performing repetitive work since many years and still working with great efficiency. 

    1. What is the major thing you think plays a key role in success of this business?
    A lot of research is necessary for answering this question. It is advised to make sufficient research and know about company’s work profile and your applied job profile before you appear for any personal interview. Research is the base of any job interview. It is important to know about the company and understand the work done by the company. Knowing these details, you can easily find out the factors responsible for the success of the company. 

    1. What is the possible date you can join?
    If you perform well in your second interview, interviewer will definitely ask you this question. Recruiters are quite busy people and they will not waste their precious time with candidate who can’t even take simple decision like when to join the new job. When interviewer asks this question, do not talk of the other job offers you currently have. If you have any important interview scheduled within 2-3 days, you can ask for some time to think about the opportunity. Do not demand many days as it will make employers think that you are irresponsible and careless person and don’t deserve the opportunity.  

    It can be the last interview before getting the job. Hence, coming till here, it is very much disheartening to lose the opportunity. Proper research and initial preparation will help you to avoid such situation.
