When applying for jobs or placements you will most certainly face at least some of these sudden interview tests. To prepare for the actual interview situation it is well worth reading through our pages on how to prepare for inteviews. Preparation for interviews is crucial and will make or break your chances of getting a job. Below you will find some sudden tasks and tests that interviewers could ask.

Just remember when you are answering the questions to be calm and relaxed. Think of it as an informal chat and they are just trying to get to know you. And you them.

You know you are the right candidate for them and now you just have to explain to the hiring managers why. Always use examples of why you master a skill and how you handled a certain situation.

Be polite, friendly, remember to smile, dress well and be clean. Have all the papers with you that might be needed! Also be on time and in fact come even 5-10 minutes early. It not a bad thing to be early!
