Where do you see yourself in five years?

then you forget about yourself. Answer the question by stating how you intend to further your studies and grow professionally as you strive to meet your employer’s goals.
How do friends describe you?
The question is testing your personal attributes, when answering it ensure that you don’t over exaggerate.Take the shortest time possible to state the best attribute you possess that you believe will add value to that work place.
Do you have any question to ask the panel?
This is usually the last question that the interview panel asks interviewees; if you fail to ask questions, you may lose some marks.Ask them whether they have plans to expand their business, whether they support employees to further their studies and how they motivate employees.
What is your salary expectation?
The question is tricky because as a fresh candidate you don’t have a clue what to be paid.Simply ask them what they pay others of your level , if they fail to give a satisfactory answer then give them a reasonable range.
Ensure you do your research before you go for an interview because you will be asked most of these questions.
