job. I applied to several
jobs and had interviews
but did not qualify.

My problem arises
during interviews and I am sure
that the way I answer questions
is the main reason why I fail
during job interviews. Please
give me ideas on how to answer
questions such as: "Why do
you want the job?" and "
What can you offer to this company?"

how to answer these questions.
conducting interviews, HR practitioners
are more particular with the way
applicants respond to questions
than in providing the right answers.
It means that interviewers want

situations that cannot easily
be identified as right or wrong

asked questions (FAQs) during
job interviews and I advise that
you prepare answers for those
questions. Communication skills,

interviews. Reading books on English
Grammar would help in enhancing
communication skills. You can
also practice by allowing someone
to ask questions, listen, and
check your grammar. This can also
be done by looking in a mirror
while talking. Enhancing your
communication skills would make
you confident during interviews.
In answering questions such as
"Why do you want the job,"
and " What can you offer
to this company," you can
prepare for this questions by
conducting a research about the
company and the position you are
applying for before your interview
schedule. You can do this by checking
on the company website or by asking
friends who might have an idea
about the company. HR practitioners
would agree that a good and persistent
applicant could be described as
someone who takes extra time to
research about the company s/he
might be involved with in the
