Useful Interview Tips – When you don’t know how to answer a question during an interview

If you are not aware of ;how to answer a question during an interview, the silence can seem extremely painful. ; Do not ;panic, though — Note down the following ;tips on your ;mind before you attend your next or upcoming interview.

1. Calm down.

The foremost important thing to do is stay calm. ;As you start freaking out, your body will begin reacting physiologically. Your interviewer may notice it clearly. For instance, your blood pressure will start rising, and your heart may beat faster. Once you start taking stress, you won’t be able to think it deeply, so your answer may be senseless. Take deep breaths, and tell yourself that it’s OK to not know the answer to the question. You’ll just have to work through it; there’s nothing you can do to change things, but you need to stay calm to find the right answer.

2. Avoid Saying, “I don’t know,” .

You should not tell the interviewer you don’t know the answer without ;thinking it ;over. Be careful, Do not handle this situation ; badly, ;because your interviewer can see right through that.

3. Ask questions to your Interviewer.

You may not understand the question. In that case, ;ask your interviewer to clarify what they said. Go deeper into the question to see if you can get more details that will help you figure it out.

4. Tell your interviewer what you do know.

If you do have some knowledge regarding the question, ;do not hesitate ;to tell your interviewer what you do know of the situation. Saying everything out loud can start you on the process of figuring out the problem.

5. Tell them how you would find the answer.

Even if you don’t know what the answer is, you can tell the interviewer the steps you would take to figure out the problem. Interviewers may ask you a difficult questions to analyze your thought process. Sometimes, the thought process may be more important than the actual answer. They want to see that you can take initiative and have the resources to come up with a solution on your own, instead of needing someone to hold your hand through problems. Be honest, so that the hiring manager will know you are not trying to fake it. For example, if you need to calculate something and you’re not good at mathematics, you can respond with “I can’t do the calculations off the top of my head, but I think these calculations will give me the answer. And what I can do is use a calculator to find that answer.” Remember, Honesty is the best Policy.

6. Know the right time to come clean.

Although we mentioned not admitting to the interviewer that you don’t know the answer, there is an exception to this rule. If the answer is something that you will only know through memorization, such as a definition of the word, then it’s probably best to admit that you don’t know the answer, as it may be impossible to figure it out independently. Here’s what you can tell the interviewer: “It’s a good question, but I’m sorry, I don’t have the answer off the top of my head. I will be sure to follow up with the answer after the interview.”

7. Send a follow-up email.

The follow-up email ;could become your second chance. Try to talk about the answer you were confused, but be smooth when you’re talking about it. Ensure, you’re only naming the mistakes your interviewer caught and not drawing attention to the ones they did not catch. Don’t say something like “I’m sorry I did not know the answer to that question.” Instead, tell her that after more time and thought, you managed to come up with a couple of solutions that could work for the problem.

Recently Asked HR Interview Question Answer and Tips – What would your first 30, 60, or 90 days look like in this role?


Start by explaining what you’d need to do to get ramped up. What information would you need? What parts of the company would you need to familiarize yourself with? What other employees would you want to sit down with? Next, choose a couple of areas where you think you can make meaningful contributions right away. (e.g., “I think a great starter project would be diving into your email marketing campaigns and setting up a tracking system for them.”) Sure, if you get the job, you (or your new employer) might decide there’s a better starting place, but having an answer prepared will show the interviewer where you can add immediate impact—and that you’re excited to get started.

30 60 90 day plans should be divided into segments–

Your first 30 days, ;which are usually focused on training and getting to know everyone (co-workers, other departments, customers, etc.)

The next 30 days ;(the 60-day part), ;which is usually the getting-up-to-speed portion, as well as getting feedback on your progress
The last 30 days ;(the 90-day part), ;which is where you set goals for accomplishing on your own (like going after new business, starting new projects, establishing new procedures, making improvements, increasing efficiency, or otherwise contributing to the growth of the company)

;If answering this interview question from an entry-level position:

– Describe how you will best utilize your training
– ;Focus on how you plan to build relationships with your coworkers
– Outline skills and experience that you would hope to put into practice
– If you are a manager or higher, you have a more extensive background.

If your position involves a team working under you:

– Go into detail about how you intend to interact with your new employees
– Talk about what steps you would take to gain their trust and respect
– Delineate a few specific teamworking goals relevant to the position
– This is essential for any manager’s success as you are only as good as the production of your team.

Understand what’s expected during the first three months on the job.
First, let’s take a look at what this question is actually asking. Why the numbers 30, 60 and 90? These numbers correspond to standard cut-offs for your first three months on the job—30 days, 60 days or 90 days. Interviewers ask this question for a number of reasons. They want to see how you think about ramping up in your new role, how fast you’ll complete the onboarding process and what types of goals and standards you hold yourself to, especially in a new environment.

This onboarding period may seem daunting, but it can be an exciting time, too. You will learn a lot about your duties, your supervisor, company culture and workplace etiquette. You also will learn a lot about yourself and how you fit into the larger organization.

Do your research.
Even if you’ve had an internship in the field before, you can’t really know what a job entails until you’ve worked full-time in the role. That doesn’t mean you can’t do your research to get a fuller picture. Here are some ideas for where to look for a dose of realism (and some healthy inspiration):

Job listings—Do a quick Google search for similar roles and titles to get a sense of what those responsibilities look like.
Employee resumes—Perusing the online resumes of young professionals in your intended field can be invaluable. Resumes provide more in-depth information than company profiles and bios. Again, start with people who are just a couple of years more experienced than you to see what they’ve accomplished.
Talk to someone—Arrange an informal meeting with someone in your intended field, preferably someone around your age and experience level. Explain that you would like to get started in the industry and have questions about what to reasonably expect during the first three months and the rest of the first year on the job.
Prepare your answer by outlining your goals for each month.
After you’ve studied up on what you may be doing at your job, think about what you can realistically accomplish during this initial period. What kinds of concrete goals can you set? What projects are you excited to take on? If possible, stick to quantifiable results. Then practice your answer to the interview question. Try to condense your response to 3-4 sentences.

Sample Answer: ;“In addition to getting to know the team and getting fully up to speed with the role, there’s a lot I want to accomplish during my first three months in the role of editor. During my first 30 days, I want to get a sense of our blog’s editorial goals and use those to create a new blog design. After 60 days, I want our blog redesign launched and to have at least 50 contributors writing for the website. After 90 days, I want to switch the efforts from building the team to tracking growth, and I’m hoping that we can have 100,000 unique visitors by then through utilizing our marketing channels and those of our contributors.”

Always have a backup answer ready.
If you don’t a clear idea of the exact goals for the position or what you would like to accomplish, there are some things you can touch on that are relevant for almost any role. This can serve as your backup answer and you should always have one ready.

Sample Answer: ;“Within 30 days, I plan to get to know the people I’ll be working with the most and to be comfortable with them. Within 60 days, I plan to have a solid understanding of the industry, the company and the competitive landscape so that I can hold my own in any conversation about the company. Within 90 days, I plan to meet the goals that have been set for me.”

You need to sound like you want the RIGHT job and that you’re being picky. Companies want the best performers, and the best performers are picky in their job hunt. Stay away from negatives and complaints too. Don’t bad-mouth your current company or boss. Focus on the positives of the company you’re interviewing with.


-Make them feel like you’re interested in them for a specific reason
-Show you’ve done your research and understand what the job involves
-Phrase everything as a positive. Don’t badmouth your current situation, just talk about what you hope to gain by coming to work for them (experiences, challenges, opportunities).


-Say you just need a job in general
-Explain that you’re unemployed and just need to find work
-Say you just need money or have bills to pay so you need work
-Badmouth your current boss or company and sound like you just want to leave there, however you can
-Sound desperate, or sound like you will take any job you can get and you don’t care what it ends up being
-Mention any other personal reasons like “I need to find a shorter commute.”

Example answer 1:

“Since beginning my career, I’ve wanted to work for a larger organization in this industry, and I know you’re one of the leaders in this space. I’m very interested in your products/services, especially the mobile applications you’re building recently, so I’d be excited to come here and grow my skills with an organization like yours.”

Example answer 2:

“I’ve heard great things about the work environment here from a few colleagues. And when I saw this job posting, it seemed to match my skills very closely. For example, I saw on the job description that you need somebody who’s an expert in Java programming. This is what I focused on in both of my previous positions, and was even the focus of my academic work before graduating university. I consider myself an expert in Java and it’s a skill I hope to continue specializing in.”
