Mostly Asked  Online Jobs Job Interview Questions and Answers
Mostly Asked Online Jobs Job Interview Questions and Answers

1 :: Tell me about yourself?

You need to have a short statement prepared in your mind. Be careful that it does not sound rehearsed. Limit it to work-related items unless instructed otherwise. Talk about things you have done and jobs you have held that relate to the position you are interviewing for. Start with the item farthest back and work up to the present.

2 :: What is legitimacy in online jobs?

Legitimacy is the popular acceptance of an authority, usually a governing law or a regime. Whereas "authority" denotes a specific position in an established government, the term "legitimacy" denotes a system of government.

3 :: Why should you not get much personal?

Interesting jobs that require an employer to get to know you on a more personal basis, such as becoming a personal assistant or modeling for a local brand.
Sometimes an employer has a legitimate need to see a photo or ask questions about your personal interests.
Just be extremely cautious. When it starts sounding more like a cheesy, over-the-top dating profile instead of a job listing, then it is highly recommended that you question the legitimacy of the personal assistant position that you are applying for.

4 :: Why should you check the dates to determine online job legitimacy?

If a decent-paying job is posted, there will be numerous, immediate responses, which means listings are often taken down within a week or two of being posted. If a business does not find the perfect candidate right away and leaves the listing up for a long time, there may be a reason why no one has landed the position.

5 :: How will you look for signs of unprofessionalism?

Watch out for signs of unprofessionalism, including the following red flags: asking to meet at night over drinks, dodging your questions about the company and their mission, and texting you pleasantries completely unrelated to your line of work (even before you start working).
Of course, a lot depends on the type of work you will be doing, but if you feel like your interaction is inappropriate to the setting and to what your work relationship calls for, then it probably is.

6 :: Why did you leave your last online job?

Stay positive regardless of the circumstances. Never refer to a major problem with management and never speak ill of supervisors, co-workers or the organization. If you do, you will be the one looking bad. Keep smiling and talk about leaving for a positive reason such as an opportunity, a chance to do something special or other forward-looking reasons.

7 :: What experience do you have in this field of working online?

Speak about specifics that relate to the position you are applying for. If you do not have specific experience, get as close as you can.

8 :: Are you applying for other online jobs?

Be honest but do not spend a lot of time in this area. Keep the focus on this job and what you can do for this organization. Anything else is a distraction.

9 :: Do you think you are successful in working online?

You should always answer yes and briefly explain why. A good explanation is that you have set goals, and you have met some and are on track to achieve the others.

10 :: What do you know about this organization as an online job worker?

This question is one reason to do some research on the organization before the interview. Find out where they have been and where they are going. What are the current issues and who are the major players?

11 :: Tell me about your home environment?

I have two school age children, who are out of the house at school most of the day. My dog is normally outside in our fenced in yard, when I am working and need to make calls.

12 :: Do you have a home office to work online?

There best answers:
☛ Yes, I do. We converted a spare room over our garage into an office, where we have a computer, printer/scanner/copy/fax machine, and phone. It is nicely secluded from the rest of the house.
☛ I have a spot with all my equipment where I keep things organized.
☛ I have an area removed from the rest of the house where I can work quietly.

13 :: What do you like the best about online jobs?

I really like the flexibility in hours. I have always been a night owl, and working set hours is difficult for me. I can accomplish much more on my own timetable.

14 :: What do you like the least about online jobs?

The thing that I find I like the least is when I have a question, and can not walk down the hallway to ask my supervisor about it. Sometimes it is frustrating to play email or phone tag.

15 :: What interests you about working for this online job company?

Your company is one of the leaders in e-widget sales. Having worked in e-widget manufacturing for the last ten years, I would welcome the opportunity to use that experience in another sector of the market.

16 :: Why are you seeking an online job?

I find that by working from home, I am able to concentrate and get more done than when I worked in a busy office. My office space is a quiet respite.

17 :: Why do you think we should hire you for online job?

I think that my experience in the widget industry and my ability to work autonomously make me a good match for online job.

18 :: What equipment do you have for online jobs?

I have a desk top computer, printer, fax machine, phone, scanner and copier. The post office is also just two blocks away.

19 :: What are the advantages of an online job?

Online job has several advantages for me. I like the flexibility in hours. I am an early riser, and I can accomplish a lot before most people are in the office. I enjoy working by myself in a quiet place, without the distractions of a busy office. I like not having to drive to work.

20 :: What are the disadvantages of an online job?

☛ One of the disadvantages of a work at home position is that you lose the daily face to face interaction with your colleagues.
☛ When you work at home, you need to make a little extra effort to stay connected with your colleagues and the direction of your team.
☛ At home there can be some distractions. I am fortunate that my office is removed from the house, and I can work there undisturbed.

21 :: Why should you protect your financial information?

Anyone asking for credit card information or personal information straight off the bat cannot be trusted. If you have not even interviewed for the job or have not secured the job yet, there should be no reason why you are handing a stranger your personal information.

22 :: Why should you set up a separate email account?

It is a good idea to set up a specific email account for your applications. With a separate email account, "employers" who could potentially be fake will not be able to use your more widely-used email account to spam you or steal your identity.

23 :: Why should you do due diligence before sending your resume for online job?

Do not send your resume right away unless you have verified that the job offer is real. Since your resume provides information about you such as your name, school, email address, home address and your phone number, thieves can use this information to steal your money and your identity.

24 :: How should you trust your instincts?

You have probably come across at least a few of those "too good to be true" ads that offer free money right away and other benefits at no cost or hassle to you, even if you have no previous work experience. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

25 :: Why should you do some detective work?

Break out those detective skills when checking out the legitimacy of a job listing - do your research on the company well. Be cautious if the business is claiming to be a big, hotshot company and yet there is no trace of them online.
