The following job interview questions bug almost every candidate yet recruiters love asking them! Many of these questions are so dull and tedious that candidates avoid them when practicing for their interview. But these are the questions that almost always make an appearance in the actual job interview and most applicants answer them spontaneously and often don’t notice how honest they are in doing so. And this is probably the exact reason why these questions are firm favourites of many HR bosses.
With a lot of job interview questions, it is often not the question that is important but rather the answer and the candidate’s ability to formulate an argument. Anyone who reacts to a boring interview question with visible disinterest will make a poor impression on the selection committee. Rambling on and giving an exaggerated answer to a dull question will appear cocky and inauthentic. If you don’t have a good answer prepared in advance, you might find yourself stuttering or making statements you didn’t want to make. The good thing about boring and annoying interview questions, however, is that if you do give an original and authentic answer, you’ll be a step ahead of the crowd.
