3 Information Technology Job Interview Questions & Answers

Q. Explain to me the process you went through to design your last database.
A. Designing databases is one of the job responsibilities you will probably carry if you get into the IT field. Your ability to execute the designing of databases is a skill you must have. Answer this question by explaining in detail how you go about this process. Make the interviewer understand that you are indeed a proficient at it.

Q. When you have a task that requires analyzing large amounts of data, what computer programs or resources do you use to assist you?
A. Your employer wants to see that you're able to call upon multiple resources in order to help you solve a possible problem. It makes you appear to have a good knowledge base as it concerns many different aspects having to do with analyzing large amounts of data. Many of these do not have to be resources you use on a regular basis. Just make sure you make your prospective interviewer understand how you go about handling such matters.

Q. What percentage of your time at work is spent working on a computer?
A. This question can be a double-edged sword sometimes, it is good to work on your computer a lot but at the same time you don't want to be confined to it 24 seven. You will still need to have good people skills and be able to work well with others at whatever IT job get. Make sure you explain to the interviewer that even though you may spend a lot of time working at the computer, you still know how to make your way around the workplace.
