Promotion Interview in your Current Organisation
When you're interviewing for a new position or for a job promotion with your current employer, many of the interview questions you will be asked are standard interview questions that all candidates are expected to answer.
In addition, when interviewing for a job promotion, you will be asked specific questions related to the company, your role within the company, and the job you are applying for.
Job Promotion Interview Questions
- What do you like best about your current position at the company?
- What was your biggest success story in XYZ department?
- Why do you want to leave your current job?
- Can you tell me what you know about the position you are being considered for? How about our team?
- Why do you want the new position?
- Why should we consider you for this promotion?
- Are you the best candidate for promotion? Why?
- What training will you need to be successful in this position?
- How will you handle it if you don't get the promotion?
- If you were promoted, when would you expect your next promotion?
Use Your Insider Advantage
When you respond, remember that you have an insider advantage - you already work for the company. Differentiate yourself from the competition when you are competing with external candidates by mentioning your company-specific experience, knowledge, and skills when you answer the interview questions.
It's also important to give examples of successful accomplishments and projects, the goals you've met, and your achievements in your current position.
What is not allowed in an interview? (e.g. can the interviewer ask questions about partners or pregnancy)
The rough economy has made many people desperate for a job. In their eagerness for gainful employment, many people may overlook improper interview questions. Depending on how they are asked, questions about personal topics such as marital status, race and health, and pregnancy are more than just poor manners - they are illegal under federal and some state and local laws. These types of questions can be used to discriminate against applicants, and it is your right not to answer them.
It is important to know your rights as an employee. Unlawful questions are not acceptable on applications, during the interview process or in the workplace. Although improper questions by employers might be simple mistakes, they could also be intentional cases of discrimination that should be reported.
Here are eight questions your employer should not ask you.
- How old are you?
- Are you married?
- Do you have any disabilities?
- Do you take drugs, smoke or drink?
- What religion do you practice?
- What is your race?
- Are you pregnant?
- Are you living with HIV/AIDS?
