面接質問リスト100問

はじめに

私が面接のためにイチから作成し、面接準備の2ヶ月間毎日向き合った質問リストを公開します。100問とタイトルにありますが、もっとあると思います。同じ行に入っているものは表現が違うだけで、聞いてることは大体同じものです。本番では9割方質問リストの内容でカバーできた印象です。誤字脱字ミスなどはご容赦ください。

質問の分類

紆余曲折しながらも、最終的に私は6つのテーマに分けました。

①Background(Career):Walk me through your resumeに代表される、キャリアについての質問です。時系列でいうと、誕生から高校まで、大学(Academic)、社会人(Professional)の3つに細分化できます。

②Yourself:強み/弱み、性格、趣味などがこれに当たります。

③Behavioral○○○した体験は?という実際のエピソードについて聞かれるパートです。○○○には、リーダーシップor ダイバーシティ or チームワークなど×成功 or 失敗 orその他×仕事 or 仕事以外というように、各要素の掛け算したものが入ります。

④Goal statement:Why MBA?に代表される、あなたのキャリアゴールについての質問です。Why MBA? Why Spain? Why this school? Why now?という質問が聞かれますが、自分のキャリアゴールと現状のGAPを埋めるためになぜMBA(なぜ○○スクール)というところまで明確に落とし込む必要があります。

⑤Others:上記①〜④に当てはまらない質問は全て放り込んでおきました。IEのUnusual質問などがここに入ります。

⑥Any question?:今度は受験生が質問する側です。1校あたり5問程度用意しておけばよいでしょう。
