How important is money to you?

This is one of those trick questions you may face while attending a job interview. To be frank there is no good answer exists.

ADVERTISEMENTS

You should provide honest answer to such question. If I were you I will say something as follows:
Money is a good motivation for many people. I do enjoy my job but I’ve family and I need to support them.

Non-technical questions help to get more information about candidate. Following are more common question:
What you will do if you don’t get this job?
Why did you leave your last job?
Why do you want to work here? etc

If you are attending a job interview first time use search engine to find such questions or get books from your local book store.

I’d love to know – what part of a job interview question(s) challenges you the most?

    Actually salary questions on a resume are good examples of traps. They plan on giving you 50k a year you put down you will do it for 20k and that is what you get. I would suggest leaving them blank.

    Side not, the font in the comment box is either way to small or just the font type but it’s almost impossible to read as your typing it.

    I agree, putting salary information on your resume is definitely a bad idea.

    Anytime I’ve been stumped by an interview question, I’ve always ended up cutting the “interview speak” and just acting like I’m talking to a normal person. I think most of the time, the tougher questions are meant to do this to see how you are personally.

    The toughest question I’ve ever asked in interviews was:

    “Tell me how your career in IT is more than just a 9-5 job.”

    That one always makes them sweat and you quickly realize the actual “geeks” from the ones who are just in it for the money.

    @gregf,

    > I would suggest leaving them blank.
    Good idea

    >Side not, the font in the comment box is either way to small or just the font type but it’s almost impossible to read as your typing it.
    Opps. CSS code has been updated. Let me know if you have any other problem.

    @Joe,

    I like your technique – cutting the ‘interview speak’ and just acting like talking to a normal person 🙂

    >I think most of the time, the tougher questions are meant to do this to see how you are personally.
    I agree with you. They will try to find out thinking skills and your personal attitude. My manger always insists that – technical ability is secondary to the ability to function as a team member.
