During a job interview, there are a lot of questions. But what does the interviewer want to know?
"Most have no idea why a recruiter asks a particular question,". "They tend to think it's a competition to outwit the interviewer." The truth is that employers have neither the time nor inclination to play games with you, especially when hiring.
Your interviewer is not trying to outsmart you ---> he's wants to assess the following:
- Do You Have the Skills to Do the Job?
- Do You Fit?
- Do You Understand the Company and Its Purpose?
- How Do You Stack Up Against the Competition?
- Do You Have the Right Mind-Set for the Job and Company?
- Do You Want the Job?
