Even though I am a fresher, I assure you that I will give my best and work to my full potential so that I can contribute as much as I can towards the growth and welfare of this great brand.
Q3. What are your strengths and weaknesses?
I tend to be overly critical of myself. Whenever I complete a project, I can’t help but feel that I could have done more even if my work received a positive response. This often leads me to overwork myself and leaves me feeling burned out. Over the past few years, I’ve tried to take time to look at my achievements objectively and celebrate those wins. This has not only improved my work and my confidence, but it has helped me to appreciate my team and other support systems that are always behind me in everything I do.
Q4. What is the difference between confidence and overconfidence?
“Only” is the one word that changes the difference between confidence and overconfidence like I can do this work is confidence and I only can do this work is overconfidence.
I am going to give my best in the interview to impress the panel, this is confidence. The interviewer is definitely going to hire me, that’s over-confidence.
I’m the best person to hire for or company – Confidence. I’m only the best person to hire from or company – Overconfidence.
Q5. What is the difference between hard work and smart work?
Hard work may give results but it takes much time. Smart work will give optimum results with less work and within less time. Because smart work is an intangible asset of genius.
In simple words: Hard work means work and then thinking. Smart work means thinking and then working.
Q6. Why do you want to work at our company?
I am looking for a platform where I can give my best and work with dedication to give a kick start to my carrier. And if that platform comes from a well-renowned company like (company name) then it can’t be anything better than that. And I love challenges that an organization puts in that helps an individual to grow up professionally. But I worship the company that honors the individual who accepts and copes up with the challenges. And (company name) is right on top among such organizations.
Why because it’s a great pleasure to work with your company. It will help me to explore my skills and prove my ability and also gain experience. I think it will be a good platform to prove myself.
Q7. How do you feel about working nights and weekends?
Sir/Ma’am, no problem in working nights and weekends because in my opinion if we want to be successful then we should be honest to our work because it is vital for everyone, who wants a bright future, to remember the old adage “Successful leaders see the opportunity in every difficulty rather than the difficulty in every opportunity”.
Have no problem doing work at night and on weekends. Most probably, spending more time with my family during weekends. But If Company needs my presence then surely my presence will be there at any time.
Q8. Can you work under pressure?
I always try to face challenges in my life. So pressure doesn’t matter. Working under pressure is the opportunity to know about my ability and gain confidence.

To be honest, my aim in life is that I would like to see myself as a successful person in a respectable position so for this right now my goal is to crack this interview and want to be part of your organization.
Q10. Are you willing to relocate or travel?
I don’t see any problem in relocating to a new place. Instead, it will provide me exposure to a new environment, culture, and languages and let me interact with different people. This will also give me a new experience and prove to be beneficial for my personality development as well.
Relocation means learning new things interacting with new people, a new culture that teaches us many more. As I like learning so relocation is not an issue.

mutual development. And as far as location is concerned, when I am out for a job, location is not a constraint to me. And talking about the job, the ideal job for me will be that job with which I can be happy while I am working.

My outside interests are hanging out with friends, listening to songs, net surfing, and being a girl I love shopping, traveling, and many more.
Q20. Would you lie for the company?
Sir/madam. Sorry but I won’t lie for the company because according to me lying is only the tool that helps us to escape the current situation, but one day later we have to face it, with some more consequences. So it’s better to face it today and find the solution. But in the future, if the company will get benefit from my lie then I will tell a lie for the company but on the condition that I will lie without affecting thousands of people.
Q21. Who has inspired you in your life and why?
Challenges inspired me most because challenges make our life interesting they prepare us to fight with our career, every step of life whether we are a student or an adult and moreover we are old. It is a key to success if we want to reach the highest peak it will be done by accepting challenges.
I am not going to say about any great personalities, great freedom fighters, etc. I am very much inspired by my mother because she is a hard worker, she always thinks in a positive manner and she always thinks about her family and she supports everyone in my family and whatever she knows she teaches to everyone and she is very respectful. She always says to me that never hurt anyone in your life, love everyone. She always says do not go on the wrong path choose the right path. And she always says that be self-confident in every task.
Q22. What was the toughest decision you ever had to make?

And, Everything is easy if you are Crazy about it. & I seriously don’t know how much crazy I am.

Q24. How do you define success and how do you measure up to your own definition?
Success is a journey, not a destination. If today is better than yesterday then we have succeeded. We can’t measure success because it is a dimensionless quantity.
