The enchanting Matsirga waterfall

Matsirga waterfall

A few kilometres from the old railway town of Kafanchan, Jema’a local government of Kaduna State, lies this natural beauty.
The ear splitting sound as one approaches the fall, the sparkling bubbles of water flowing from atop hard rocks and striking severe at its base to form a pool which flows down the slope to create a rainbow-like mist which appears and disappears and the coolness of the falls are some of the things that add to the scenic beauty that has made the fall a popular tourist destination.

Top Tips for Answering Common Interview Questions

Interviews help employers to find out who you are, what you know and where your skills lie. They’ll see if you have the talent for the job and the personality to thrive in their company.

During an interview, an interviewer will use a question and answer technique to find out about you: they pose a question, you articulate your best possible answer and blow them away.

But what are the top face-to-face and phone interview questions – and how should you answer them?

How to answer the 13 most common interview questions

From the very vague to the strangely specific, interviewers will ask a variety of questions to test your communication skills, confidence and ability to think under pressure.

Here’s are some of the more typical interview questions, and how you should try to respond.

1. Can you tell me about yourself?

Interviewers love opening with this one. It breaks any tension and starts the conversation.

Keep focused and give the interviewer a positive overview of why you’re a great fit for their company. Be yourself, keep it relevant and don’t ramble.

Try to build a rapport with the interviewer – paint a picture of why you’d be a great person to have around.

2. Why have you applied for this position?

You’ll have a personal reason for this. But try to relate what you say to the qualities listed in the job spec – and what attracted you to the job in the first place.

Perhaps it was the mention of career progression? Whatever your reason, use your answer to show off your talents and flatter your potential employer.

The key to giving good interview answers is preparing what you’re going to say before the big day

3. What are your strengths and weaknesses?

Employers like self-awareness. Being able to tell your strengths from your weaknesses shows them you can see what you’re good at and what you need to improve.

Share a few examples of your strengths and how they’ve helped you. Then be honest about some weaknesses and explain how you’re working hard to improve.

Keep all examples relevant to the job you’re going for. And don’t say you have no weaknesses – it shows a lack of self-awareness.

4. What’s your biggest achievement?

Here’s another opportunity to speak with confidence and show pride. Just make sure the achievement you choose relates the job you’re applying for.

Give an example that helps the interviewer to see how your successes could become their successes. Go into detail to show why you think it’s an achievement worth sharing.

If you’re worried you lack a great achievement, talk about the skills that help you adapt to different challenges.

5. What makes you the right person for this role?

It’s time to highlight what makes you a better pick than any other candidate.

Share the qualities, skills and achievements that show why you’re suitable. These should paint you in a positive light, and give the interviewer a clear picture of how well you’ll do the job.

Like always, keep your examples relevant to the role.

6. Where do you see yourself in five years?

This is a cheeky one. The interviewer wants to hear how ambitious you are, what motivates you, and how dedicated to their company you’ll be.

So set yourself some goals before the interview. Then take the interviewer through them in detail. Show your commitment, and reassure the employer you’ll be around for years to come.

Ambition to work your way up the career ladder might impress. But any sign you’ll leave the job if you hit a hurdle might scare them off.

7. Why did you leave your previous role?

A new employer won’t want lightning to strike twice. They’ll ask why you left your last job to work out if the same could happen with them.

If you weren’t a good fit or opportunities didn’t satisfy you, be honest and say so. Your interviewer would rather hear that than feel you’re not a team player, or you’re difficult to manage.

Whatever your reason for moving on, share it with the most positive angle you can find.

8. Can you give me an example of a time you had to cope with a difficult situation? What was the outcome?

Interviewers like to find out how you cope with challenges. Especially those that might come up in the role they’re recruiting for.

Give an example of a time you faced a serious problem, responded positively and overcame it. Even better, relate your response to the role you’re interviewing for. Show you’re a cool, calm, creative problem-solver.

Your interviewer will want to know you can stay composed – even during stressful times. So keep your answer positive. No stories of losing control.

9. Why do you want to work here?

Make sure whatever you say shows the interviewer your desire to work for a reputable company like theirs.

Then – to make sure they remember you – bring in your own personality and share examples of the successes you could experience together. Try not to sound so enthusiastic that you come across as insincere.

Also, do some extra research before you meet. Search the recruitment pages of the employer’s website. Are there company perks you’d like to discuss?

10. What do you do in your spare time?

The interviewer wants to get to know your personality.

So be yourself and share your hobbies.

From what you say, the interviewer will see if you’re a good fit or might create a personality clash. It’s their responsibility to build a productive, happy team.

If they feel you’re not the right fit, try not to take it personally. Say thank you and find another opportunity.

11. Why should I consider you for this role?

This is a biggie. It could win you the job. Or, if you don’t sell yourself quite right, put your interviewer off.

Think what attracted you to the role and the company. Look back over the job criteria. Then make sure your answer paints you as the only person who could do this job – and do it brilliantly.

This might be one of your last chances to sell yourself. So give it everything to finish the interview full of pride and confidence.

12. Can you explain what our company does?

Of course you can. Because you’ve done your homework and taken the time to research the company in detail.

Explain what they do, who they work with, and why this appeals to you. To really show you know them, give some examples of what they’ve done recently. Have they been featured in the news or won an award?

There’s no excuse for getting this wrong. So put in the time to read their website, blog or printed material to show you’re serious about joining their team.

13. Would you like to ask any questions?

Take this opportunity to ask anything that’s on your mind. As long as it’s related to the interview, of course.

What team-building activities do you do? How will you encourage me to learn new skills? Prepare a few good interview questions before you meet. Then ask those you haven’t already covered.

Just try not to answer ‘no’. Asking even a couple of good questions can make you look eager and excited to get the job and become part of the team.

Get a reader’s attention, make them interested in what you’re selling, once you have their interest, turn up the interest even more and then give them a way to take action. We’ve put together a list of quick and easy tips that will give the best results to sellers:

  1. It is important to make your title clear, appealing and eye-catching.
  2. State an appropraite price or a range: Quote a price, even if it’s high or low. If you’re high, explain why it’s worth it (for example: one of a kind, luxury item, hand-crafted, etc.), and if it’s low, be sure to mention that it is a great deal and also explain why the price is so low (for example: moving, quick sale, special purchase)
  3. The description of your product must be informative enough and must not contain any false information regarding your product or service.   
  4. Upload only unique and high-quality photos of your items taken by yourself and not downloaded from the Internet. The better photos you add, the more attractive your ad looks to the potential buyers and the more calls you receive.

  9. Find out what is important to people and make sure you touch on those points when describing your ad; and use complete sentences – they’re easier to read than a series of phrases and random words. Put yourself in the customer’s place. If you were browsing the classified ads, what would grab your attention? What words or phrases would make your ad stand out from the rest?
