Check out: There are literally thousands of job interview questions, so how do you know which questions are going to come up in your next job interview? The interview questions are easier to predict than you think. In fact, as much as 80% of the questions are predictable! In order to predict the job interview questions, you must first put yourself in the position of the employer and understand the job from their perspective. The very first thing an employer does before they embark on the hiring process is create a job description. A job description is basically a list of all of the key skills and competencies that are important for the job. Within the job description will be a list of hard skills and soft skills. The hard skills are the areas of the job which require a specific skill set or particular subject matter knowledge, ie computer skills, machine operation, safety protocols, ļ¬nancial skills, administration procedures. These skills are typically easy to observe, quantify and measure and easily identifiable from your resume. In contrast soft skills (sometimes called people skills) are not easily quantifiable or measurable. They are often described as; excellent communicator, ability to problem solve, ability to plan & organise, teambuilding, innovation, leadership ability and so forth. When designing the job interview questions, the employer will evaluate the job description and look at both the hard and the soft skills required
