Why are you looking for another job?
Again, be positive. "I have to say that I really enjoyed my years at Corporation. There are a lot of good people over there. But I am looking for a more progressive organization with greater opportunities for growth, and recognition. I am looking for a team to join where I can make real contributions and advance my career."

Why QA?
I always had an interest and desire to know about how all computer related technology works together. I always had a curiosity why certain application such and such features? Is there a way that I can break it? That’s the major things which drag my attention to QA Testing.


What do you know about our company?
Before interview, spent some time to know the company. Find out as much as you can and make a note. So you can answer some other question related to it like Why do you want to work for us? Go online and Google about company. Also review other job posting from the same company. It will give you a lot idea about what type of person they are looking for QA position. For example, a job positing for a .NET developer from same company can give you some idea that they are using .NET framework and you can prepare about it in advance.
Also find out about products, size, income, reputation, image, skills, history and philosophy. If they ask about why do you like you can answer something ..always want to work for well reputed company like ...


Where do you see yourself in 1-2-4 year?
Doing something meaning in software testing field, working together with great professional… I see myself technically more knowledgeable, more efficient in my work and a dependable pillar of organization or team I will work for.


What are your career goals?
Short term - "I want to be the best in my current position, while learning additional responsibilities. This, in itself, will assure my commitment to the firm and raise me to the next level of responsibility and promotion. I see myself wanting to stay technical but learn the necessary skills to lead people and projects."
Long term - "After proving my abilities, I see myself in a firm with the possibility of moving into a level of management that allows me to keep my skills sharp."

What is your strength?
(Always have answer before interview)Dependability, willingness to work hard, eagerness, fast-learner, technical skills, politeness, and promptness, expressed in concrete terms and good examples.


What is your weakness?
Always prepare an answer for this question before interview. You can should make interviewer to realize that you know your mistake and you are working to improve it. 
example answer: Based on the job requirement, I believe I am an outstanding match. This position requires expertise on ...., which is one of my great strength and subject of interest. However I had a small concern about my ability to..... But I feel I have improved a lot in this area in my past job and won't cause any problem to perform my job.


Why have you been out of the work for so long?
Give an honest reason if you have one such as family change, relocation, pursuing degree or something else. You do not need to think much if you have one. 
One good example answer is : My area of interest is ....(interest should be this number 1 job requirement, for example if they are looking for a load tester, say my interest is load testing) and really want to focus on this area at this point of my career. Which automatically has limited my job search. So rather than jumping into next opportunity, I have decided to consider only the right opportunity. Fortunately this job requirement is the one i am looking for.

Do you prefer to work alone or as a part of a team?
Both. Describe two examples working as a team player and working individually and conclude with you have been been successful in both work situations.

What if dev-team is not ready to accept your bug?
There is very less chance of this to happen if bug is written with full detail information for a developer to reproduce the incident. In case if it happens, and  a developer is not ready to trust your outcome, a constrictive way of communication can helps a lot to avoid such bad feeling between developers and testers. In the time being, mutual trust can be developed with collaboration rather than battles, communication bugs with facts without criticizing anyone and being neutral. Sometime it is more psychological rather. But believe and I have experience from past that, a good developer never takes a bug as a personal criticism on him, he rater thinks information provided will help him to improve his own work. Anyway,as a software testers, I should be fair to and supportive of my colleagues, and promote cooperation with software developers.

You have family commitments and baby, how can you focus on your work?

Everybody has multiple commitments, family. That does not mean you are occupied by it all the time. At least not me. When I commit my time to someone/something- lets say 'JOB'- that time belongs to that specific job. I have to focus on that job no matter what else is happening. 



Can you work under pressure?

A person’s real power, knowledge and efficiency are tested under pressure. You may not like the pressure at that moment but different ideas, constructive thoughts, and solutions always emerges when you are under pressure. So in long run it is a pleasure than pressure.



What are your interests?

Cooking, cycling,…I love hiking sometime with my friend
