TECHNICAL INTERVIEW QUESTIONS FOR HR POSITION

A job interview, especially if it is a fresher interview and more so if it is your first job interview, can be pretty scary. HR interviews are known to test the candidates through and through and as such, you should have some interview questions with answers prepared before you sit for the interview.

So, while you lose yourself under the pile of worries, we have compiled some common HR interview questions with answers to guide you on. While we do not claim that you will be asked all these or only these questions during your fresher interview, knowing them and perfecting them will do you a world of good.

Why do you think you qualify for a human resource executive’s/manager’ position?

While asking this the interviewer wants to see, how do you identify yourself with the job role. Relate your educational qualification, work experience and personal qualities with the role to answer this question.

A possible answer could be, the role of a human resource manager needs the person to connect with others on a human level and help them meet their aspirations while following the company’s policies, structure and rules. I think with an experience of ‘X’ years, I know well how to deal with humans and my last employment has given me a good insight into the rules and regulations an HR manager has to keep in mind while operating.www.iibmindia.in

What according to you are the qualities that an HR Executive/Manager must have?

Knowledge, Intuition, Versatility, Flexibility, Focus and above all a human touch in every thing you do.

Why did you choose HR as your career?

While answering this question, don’t simply say that I love to work with people and that is the reason I am into HR. This is the most common answer and moreover something which makes the interviewer burst into laughter. This answer easily makes them understand that you are saying this just to get the job.

A better way would be to identify some work areas that an HR manager has to perform in his daily routine and relate them to your interest. A possible answer could be, I liked to be a part of the recruitment team which can identify right people and put them into right places. An employment into recruitment slowly developed into a full fledged HR profession.
