The information requested in this question is already in the curriculum, but the interviewer you want to know is how balanced you are and shows how much security to briefly summarize their knowledge, experience, skills and abilities and guide them to the post you are aiming.
An example of response that can give is: “I know that I am able to use. The proof is in the curriculum, working references and certificates of study. I have also had previous experience in similar positions for which the requirements of domino same
If you do not have much experience, he must also say that it is qualified, then adding something like: “I’m easy to learn quickly in a short time proves very productive for the company” It is important to avoid comparisons with other candidates (if you know who they are)

Have a question?
The interview must not end without that you can clarify all your doubts and that is that most of the interviewers who know how to choose employees are more attracted by the candidate capable of making logical and serious questions for a candidate quiet, conformist who does not have interest in learning either.
It is therefore important that you ask questions about the following aspects:
How long will the working day?
Should we work overtime?
Will work on some Saturdays or Sundays?
What kind of compensation will be received?
How many people will have to monitor? (This question relates to whether you are aspiring to a supervisory position)
You should not exaggerate or lie when responding to questions in an interview. It is well to remember that “it is more fácilque drop a liar than a lame”
Never have to admit that it is not knowledge but to do a great emphasis on the fast learning capability and you have the possibility deadquirir new skills
Not display as a selfish, arrogant or interested. If given the opportunity to ask questions, not made based on the theme of increases or promotions should not be giving the impression that the company you’re doing a great favor to hire
