When you go on a job interview, in addition to being asked job interview questions about your employment history, your skills and qualifications for the job, your educational background, and your goals for the future, you'll also be asked personal interview questions.

Personal interview questions are questions about you personally - your personality, your work style and work ethic, how you handle stress, what you expect from an employer, and how you handle certain situations. There aren't any right or wrong answers, but do be sure your responses match what you know about the job and the company. The company is looking for the candidates who matches their needs and the closer a fit, the more competitive you'll be.

Before you head out to a job interview, review these personal interview questions and sample answers to get an idea of what you'll be asked and the best way to respond.
