You should be prepared for a property career job interview. You should be dressed right for the job interview, must have a professional curriculum vitae, you should research the employer to know a fair bit about the company and you should be ready to with answers for conventional and unconventional interview questions. There are recruiters that would only ask you the typical questions and there are some that are rather unconventional. You must be ready for both. Here is a guide that can be of help.
Let us begin with the typical property job interview questions.
There are companies that bat straight. There are companies that will throw the ball in your court when it comes to salary. You have to be a smart negotiator to get the best deal. But how the employer plays it at the time of hiring will depend on how you respond to tricky questions.
Let us now talk about some unconventional interview questions that you may have to tackle which will set you up.
- You would be asked about your background, both academic and professional. Some companies will also ask about your personal life to an extent. Academic qualifications or skills, relevant training and certification, job experience and your exposure or participation in extracurricular activities would be the typical subjects.
- Relevant experience is one of the most important criteria for any recruiter. An employer always looks for the exact specialisation it needs in the resume. Hiring is greatly influenced by this single factor. If you are applying for the job of a property manager, then your experience in years and your core expertise would be the most decisive element. You may even go wrong with some of the other answers or your CV may not be perfect but you will get an edge over others.
- Any employer would want a smart employee and one who is sure of what she or he is doing and wants. You should have answers to why property jobs are ideal for you or why a specific job or type of jobs is your forte. Knowing this will also help your job search as you can have a lucid vision with your profession.
There can be variations to these questions and the list of unconventional questions is of course endless.

- How do you manage multiple tasks?
- What is your approach to day-to-day tasks?
