    Common questions to be asked to the candidate during interview

    I am a manager in a software company. Recently I have been asked to join the panel of interviewers for the recruitment of candidates from various colleges in Delhi. This is my first time so I am really confused as what to ask from the candidates. So can you tell me some common questions to be asked from the candidates appearing for the interview?
