When it comes to job interviews, certain questions tend to be asked more commonly than others. These questions can range from basic inquiries about your work experience and qualifications to more behavioural-based questions that assess your skills and personality.

According to various HR experts and surveys conducted by companies such as Glassdoor, LinkedIn, and Indeed, here are the top 10 most-asked interview questions:

  1. Tell me about yourself.
  2. Why do you want to work for our company?
  3. What are your strengths and weaknesses?
  4. Can you tell us about a difficult/challenging situation you faced at work and how did you handle it?
  5. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
  6. Why should we hire you?
  7. What motivates you?
  8. How do you handle stress or pressure?
  9. Can you tell us about a successful project or accomplishment in your previous job?
  10. Do you have any questions for us?

Keep in mind that these top 10 questions are just a starting point for preparing for an interview. It’s important to also research the specific company and role you are applying for, and practice answering other common interview questions.
