The website Undercover Recruiter has compiled a list of the top 10 questions asked at job interviews, along with a bit of advice on how you should answer them. Here is a summary of the final 5 questions.

What sort of salary are you looking for? Always consider what salary the job is worth rather than your own salary demands, and give a range rather than a specific number.

What are your weaknesses? A good approach with this question is to mention a weakness that is not too important for the job, or to describe one which can be overcome through training or experience.

What’s the worst problem you have ever faced? Ensure that you restrict yourself to problems in the workplace rather than any personal issues. The best idea is to describe a problem which you were able to solve so that you can then concentrate on the solutions rather than the problem.

What are your strengths? Concentrate on the qualities which are important for that particular job, and back up each point with a specific example.

How would you describe a typical day in your current job? Try not to exaggerate your current position, and remember to include some of the routine tasks such as paperwork.
