Hr questions have the same importance as technical interviews, for me, it is tougher than technical rounds.

Getting a good JOB is not about you should have only good technical skills, at the same time they are looking for the best person who should fit the company culture.

At my experience level, I have some points for HR/Behavioural questions which I noticed so far —

  1. Honest Reply
  2. Answer Clearly, Don't be fake
  3. be polite
  4. positive Attitude
  5. Try not to give a lot more examples
  6. since it's an HR round, try to avoid too many technical words
  7. Always tell the truth.

We have a couple of questions to practice or look at on before our next interview. Please let me know in a comment if you faced some other questions apart from this.

  1. Tell me About yourself apart from your resume
  2. Why you are looking for a new challenge?
  3. What do you want from the new organization?
