Here’s the FULL LIST of INTERNAL JOB CANDIDATE INTERVIEW QUESTIONS:

Q1. What has attracted you to this new job within the company?

SUGGESTED ANSWER:

“The main thing that has attracted me to this new role, is that fact the skills and qualities needed to excel within the position, are a clear match for my own. As you know, I am ambitious, enthusiastic and I genuinely care about the future of this company. The role I am applying for is one I feel very excited about, and I believe within it, I will be able to make a significant and positive difference to the company as it grows, develops and expands over the coming years.”

Q2. In your opinion, what could we do better as an organization?

SUGGESTED ANSWER

“To be honest with you, overall, I believe the company is creative, forward-thinking and innovative, and it obviously has a very bright future ahead. I have considered the different ways the company could improve, but the fact we have a strong leadership and management team made it difficult to come up with new ideas. Having said that, if I did have to come up with new and improved ways of working, I feel the company could possibly look to tap into alternative methods of online marketing to generate new leads and potential sales. Online marketing opportunities are changing all of the time, and this is something we could potentially capitalize on as an organization moving forward, to ensure we stay ahead of the competition.”

HOW TO PASS AN INTERNAL JOB INTERVIEW


Internal job interviews are, in some respects, tougher than regular interviews. First and foremost, your employer knows you well, so there is no scope for answers that are anything but brutally honest! However, on the plus side, this means you can really play to your strengths and showcase the things you are good at and that will be of benefit to the company. The way to pass an internal job interview is to prepare answers for all of the questions listed on this page, as well as thinking of projects you have been involved that are a match to the following situations:

What’s your biggest achievement within the organization to date?

You employer is likely to ask what your biggest and proudest contribution to the company so far. Think of something you have done that is special that was a huge benefit to the company.

What are the key requirements of the role?

In preparation for your internal job interview, make sure you familiarize yourself with the key requirements of the role and then consider previous situations you have been in, or projects you have worked on, where you have already demonstrated these skills.

What makes you the standout candidate?

Prior to attending your internal job interview, write down a list of 5 things that make you the standout candidate. Some good examples of positive attributes to shout about during your interview might be:

    • your ability to manage multiple tasks, your total commitment to the values and the mission for the company;
    • the fact you know the company really well and have a track record for success;
    • the fact you are well-respected within the company and you can be relied upon to deliver;
    • the fact that you always look to continually learn, grow and develop within the role.

RICHARD MCMUNN’S 4 INTERNAL JOB INTERVIEW TIPS

INTERNAL JOB INTERVIEW TIP #1

The person interviewing you will have carried out their research into your strengths, weaknesses and also your future intentions. Consider honestly what your manager would say about you from a performance perspective, both good and also the things he or she feels you need to improve upon. Having a firm grasp on your own strengths and weaknesses is an important aspect of internal job interview preparation.

INTERVIEW JOB INTERVIEW TIP #2

Be entirely positive both during and after the interview. If, in the unlikely event you do not get offered the job this around, do not be negative. Demonstrate your positive attitude, offer your congratulations to the winning candidate and look forward to the next opportunity to be interviewed for similar roles within the company.

INTERVIEW JOB INTERVIEW TIP #3

Although you are being interviewed internally, do not neglect to prepare for standard interview questions, such as where you see yourself in 5 or 10 years’ time, what your strengths and weaknesses are, and also behavioral-type situations when you have worked as part of a team to complete challenging or pressurized tasks.

INTERVIEW JOB INTERVIEW TIP #4

Perhaps one of the most common types of internal job interview questions is the one where you are asked to tell the interview panel what areas you think the company could improve on. This is a very difficult interview question to answer. On the one hand, you do not want to be disrespectful towards the organization and its apparent failings, but on the other hand, you do want to tell them something that could be improved upon and be of benefit to the business. On that basis, think of forward-thinking and innovative ‘opportunities’ the company could tap into to either increase revenue, or to expand its current product range. Above all, do not be negative or critical of any manager or employee performance whilst answering this question.
