What Questions will they ask in an Interview for a Tech Job?


We have talked about the possible questions the hiring manager would ask during an interview. But what about an interview for a tech role? They will ask questions that are more specific to the technical position you are interviewing.

Some basic questions the interviewer would ask are:

  1. What are your technical certifications?
  2. Why do you think you are a suitable candidate for this job?
  3. How do you keep updated with technology?
  4. What is the most recent project you worked on and what were your responsibilities?
  5. If hired, is there anything you would change about this IT team?
  6. What will you do to ensure consistency across unit, quality, and production environments?

On top of that, hiring managers would ask questions to test your knowledge on skills needed for this position. Depending on the job post that you are interviewing for, here are some questions that they may ask.

  1. Have you used Visual Studio?
  2. Have you used Eclipse?
  3. How much reuse do you get out of the code that you develop, and how?
  4. What is the difference between a delete statement and a truncate statement in a database?
  5. Describe what is clustering and the use of it.
  6. What is a cross-site scripting attack, and how do you defend against it?
  7. What is the difference between OLAP and OLTP? When is each used?
  8. What kind of experience do you have with (programming) language?

Questions to test your problem-solving skills will also be asked on the second or third interview. Some would ask questions and talk through while some will choose to give you a problem to solve on the computer.

When you are doing some research on the company and find out more about their products and services as most questions will be based around it. Try not to ask questions which answers can be seen on their website. Lastly, all the best for your interview!
