Interview Questions by Type and Form of an Interview

Last updated on January 31st, 2018 at 11:21 am

It makes a difference whether you interview alone, or in a group. On Skype, on the phone, or in-person. The questions we will ask you in a screening interview differ to the questions you will have to deal with in a second interview, or in a final interview.

What is more, we can categorize the questions by the reason why we ask each question, and what we try to understand from your answer.

If you are an employer and plan to conduct interviews with job seekers, this section on Interview Penguin should help you to understand how to compose your interview template, and what questions to include on it.

And if you are a job seeker, our selection should help you to understand how to prepare for various levels and forms of a job interview. Enjoy!
