10 questions you are mostly likely to be asked in your campus interview

Getting a dream job through campus placement is what a management graduate looks forward to with much fervor, excitement and anxiety towards the beginning of the final year. Nearly every student sincerely prepares for interviews and put his/her best ever efforts to get the decent job through campus recruitment. Actually getting your first job after clearing campus interview is a matter of pride.

It is in fact easier to land a job in campus recruitment than it is to find one on your own. During off -campus interview you’re just one of the million job seekers for employer and you have to face a stiff competition but comparatively on-campus placements are the risk-free and the most alluring way to secure a good job. On campus companies are looking to recruit you and in that case you have an upper hand and some companies even lower their recruitment standards during campus recruitments. So it is fairly an opportunity to grab.

The competition during campus interview will only be from your peers, your friends and your classmates. The incessant thought that keep honing one’s mind is – what shall make this interview click! What extra preparation I should make to impress interviewer and is it that the interviewer is looking in me! Hell lot of questions keep crawling candidate’s mind who is preparing for campus recruitment.

We’re sharing an exhaustive list of questions that recruiters may ask during campus interviews. The list of questions is not exactly what they will ask for sure but yes it is a good indication of their expectations and a chance for you to crack the interview to give a great start to your career path.

Actually questions asked during the interview may vary from candidate to candidate but yes we can discuss some expected questions to be asked.

  • Most interviews begin with the candidate being asked to introduce himself/ herself and candidate’s weaknesses and strengths.
  • I suggest you to be prepared for the question like “Why MBA?” and “reasons to do MBA? and “why not some other course?”
  • Most obvious questions during interview are Why do you want this job and Why should we hire you?
  • Questions related to core academics and application-based questions can be asked.
  • What is the difference between hard work and smart work?
  • Question can be asked on your summer/winter project and even your internship experience.
  • What can you do for us that other candidates can’t? and explain how would be an asset to this organization?
  • Questions like “Your future goals? and “Where would you like to be in your career five years from now?”
  • Explain how would be an asset to this organization?
  • Last expected question is “Do you have any questions for me?”

 Do remember that an interview is a two-way exchange of information and is a golden opportunity to present yourself and your skills to your best advantage. Make optimum use of this opportunity and remember you are the best one to do it!! Best wishes from Asia-Pacific Team.
