You have not done this sort of job before. How will you cope/succeed?

Say that you are a hard working individual and that you are very determined and will do whatever it takes to get the job done.

How long do you think it would be before you were making a significant contribution to the team/company?

This is quite subjective as the company will have to give you enough time to adapt and to feel confortable about the business and the daily tasks. However, you should show them that you have confidence in your own skills, and you can also turn the question round on them and ask how soon would they expect it.

Why did you choose a career in…?

Be positive about your reasons. If you have changed careers make a logical argument as to why you did so.

What would your ideal job be?

Remember where you are, the industry and the business. Describe the job in terms of the criteria they have used to describe their job.

An ideal job might include things like challenging work, a fair rate of pay for the job, nice colleagues, good career prospects, good team atmosphere, opportunity to learn new skills, etc.

How would you describe yourself? / How would others describe you?

Pick your best attributes and achievements from your career. Be honest and humble.

Do you need other people around to stimulate you or are you self-motivated?

You need to say that you are self-motivated, try to give examples of past experiences.

Are you accepted into a team quickly?

Hopefully you can answer a resounding “Yes” to this question.

Can you act on your own initiative?

You should say that you can. You could ask how much responsibility you would have.

Make sure to ask your own questions, as employers often judge your interaction throughout the interview and your potential to turn that meeting into a nice and relaxed conversation. Tell them about your hobbies, how you use your free time, after all they are just looking for a regular invidividual. Experience will probably not be very important at this point, so try to score points with your own personality.

Good luck!
