Sitting for job interviews is not always a memorable experience. Every person appearing for an interview goes through the stress and anxiety of being hired or getting rejected. If you face repeated rejections, you tend to develop a phobia towards interviews. Proper preparation and research is the key to succeed, says a JobBuzz study powered by TimesJobs.
A massive 90 per cent of the 820 employees surveyed confessed that they have faced awkward questions in job interviews.
Additionally, 40 per cent of junior employees, 65 per cent mid-level employees and 55 per cent senior level employees have had to deal with inappropriate questions in their interviews. 20 per cent of all of employees surveyed said that they have faced inappropriate questions in all their interviews.
* 40 per cent respondents said they faced inappropriate questions in 10 per cent of the job interviews.
* 25 per cent employees said they have faced such questions in 5-10 per cent of their interviews.
* 15 percent employees said nearly 5 percent of their job interviews had such inconvenient questions.
Women face questions more centered about their family planning, age and weight, while men face more questions centered on their lifestyle and social preferences.
Women face more awkward questions as 80 per cent respondents admit facing inconvenient questions compared to 60 per cent men who faced such situations.
