    Hello,

    First of all clear your mind about the idea that "I am not worthy of jobs". Whenever you face the same question just answer this
    " I am trying my best and I do hope I will get job soon". You should answer this in a calm and straight forward way. You should
    look into the eyes of the questioner. Remember honest and truthfull answer will always give you the edge.

    Bye.

    Hello Friend,
    This is a really difficult question and demotivating also.usually candidates start talking all negative things happened to them in last all interviews they have appeared.here in this case you should never tell anything negative because if you start telling negative things about all previous companies then they will treat you as a person who blames others for his own faults and that is bad and if you tell all negative about your self trying to be modest they will think you as incompetent.so dont tell all those things tell them that you are in search of a good company like them and was doing some courses parallely.also you can mention that the job profile i was offered in the previous companies was not in which domain i have done certification,thats why i waited for the correct opportunity.like this you can handle it in a positive way.
    Thank You.

    This is a common question asked to every candidate when it has been sometime that the candidate has finished his/her studies and still he/she did not find a job.So you should be ready with a good answer to this question.This is because any type of dissatisfying answer can lead to rejection of your candidature for recruitment.Your answer should not reveal that you were not worthy enough and should not show any unprofessional quality of yours which was the reason for your rejection in the previous interviews.Your answer should be smart enough to allow the interviewers take this gap after completion of your studies as a light thing.

    You can give answers like you had been offered some tempting positions in the last few days but had to turn them down as you did not find them right for your candidature.You can follow it up with some examples.You can say that you are looking for a job that you feel will give you stability. A job that will not just give you job security but also job satisfaction.You don’t want to rush into something and regret later.

    Hi,
    [FONT=georgia, serif]I think this is very tough question to answer,because one can have their specialty or may expert in one field or their own way.So one's qualities can match with some other's requirements.No one can satisfy every one's exceptions or needs.May be you are good at some skills and your skills might not match with their needs.Take an example that you are best friend to some one in your class but it is not possible to be best for all your classmates even all you are at same level(that means equal stage).Say this example if you like.[/FONT]“In the darkest hours we must believe in ourselves.”[FONT=georgia, serif]
    All the best

    Hi buddy

    This is a very tricky type of question as here the interviewer is trying to test that what exactly do you want to do in your professional career. Thus these type of questions require some thinking on your part and you should always try to prepare such questions beforehand before you go for an interview in the future. So friend don't be nervous and I am sure with your confidence, you will be definitely able to impress your interviewer.

    When asked such a question you should tell your interviewer that you are trying to look for a job which matches your calibre and thus want to get the best possible offer so that you have a bright future ahead. but sadly you haven't been able to find such a job till now but you hope that their company will be able to satisfy your needs. If your requirements are met , you assure them that you will give your best to their company and will always remain faithful to them. You will work with full dedication and also will put your best foot forward. You hope that you could take their company to greater heights.

    I am sure your interviewer will be certainly impressed by this answer of yours and thus will definitely give you brownie points for it. So friend just let yourself get confused and try to assemble your thoughts and I am sure you will be able to get the job easily.

    Good luck

So still searching for this type of role and meanwhile i am doing higer study, so that there is no loss of time. All The Best

    hello,
    well yes it is a difficult question, but you need to keep in mind that you have to be positive in your answer. if you are projecting your weakness even then make sure you define them in right way. they just want to know 2 or 3 reasons, dont over exagerrate the answer. be confident but not over confident.
    thanks

    Hi ,
    This is a very important question often asked in the interview.
    You must handle this question carefully.
    you can answer any of the following points:
    -->> I have been looking forward for a better opportunity which would provide a greater career growth.
    -->> If you are preparing for some competative exams then you can mention about that.
    -->> If you are taking any professional courses then you can also give a brief description on that.
    In your answer you should mainly focus on the fact that you were doing something productive.
    Thank you

    Re: Answer to - "Why haven't you got job till now"?

    Hi friend,

    I think this is a really difficult question and demotivating also.
    Usually candidates start talking all negative things happened to them in last all interviews they have appeared.
    Here in this case you should never tell anything negative because
    If you start telling negative things about all previous companies then they will treat you as a person who blames others for his own faults and that is bad
    If you tell all negative about your self trying to be modest they will think you as incompetent.
    so dont tell all those things tell them that you are in search of a good company like them and was doing some courses parallely.
    Also you can mention that the job profile i was offered in the previous companies was not in which domain i have done certification,thats why i waited for the correct opportunity.
    Like this you can handle it in a positive way.

    Thanks!!!
    all the best.............
