Job Interview Tips for Fresh Grads-Part 2

Soft Skills - Leadership and Communication Skills Questions. (Very important for executives in technical to have a balance of soft skills and technical skills)

Q: Do you feel comfortable working in team?
A: Yes I do. I truly believed that with team, a project could be more organized, better coordination and bring faster result.

Q: Why is that so?
A: Team member compliment each other with individual skill. It's like jigsaw puzzle, every piece is equally important to complete the puzzle.

Q: Do you understand the importance of leadership?
A: It is very important because I need a leadership to get things done through other people, subordinate, peers and superiors.

Q: What do you understand about leadership itself?
A: Leadership is a process of influencing others to follow you and to do willingly things that you want them to do. It is the ability to get things done through other people.

Q: What would be your approach in leadership?
A: Leading by example. I have to show good example for my subordinate to follow my instruction. If I am a late comer, I won't be able to lead my subordinate in punctuality.

Q: Do you think communication is important?
A: Yes indeed. Bad communication could jeopardized quality, increase cost and affect delivery. It can also demoralize subordinates.
