A job interview typically precedes the hiring decision and is used to evaluate the candidate. The job interview is considered one of the most useful tools for evaluating potential employees. It demands significant resources from the employer, yet has been demonstrated to be notoriously unreliable in identifying the optimal person for the job. An interview also allows the candidate to assess the corporate culture and demands of the job.
Interview questions come in many forms and serve many different purposes. Some are used to get to know you, while others are used to gather information. Technical interview questions are used to test your logic, reasoning, and problem-solving skills. The key to answering these types of questions is to relax and to not over-think. They are most common in interviews that involve getting a job that will require you to come to draw logical conclusions on a daily basis. Computers and sciences areas will have these types of technical questions.
Typically, technical interview questions don’t have a right or wrong answer. The interviewer is interested in your logic skills and the thought process that you go through on the way. Your communication and analytical skills are what this part of the interview is about. The best way to approach technical interview questions is to engage in a dialogue with your interviewer. There is no way to know what sort of question may come your way, but the best way to prepare is to practice doing riddles and brainteasers to keep your skills sharp. Know the field you are entering well so that the technical questions are not to difficult to answer. Make sure your logic skills are fine-tuned, and you will do well with the job interview. Management positions, for example, require quick but complete thought processes and good interpersonal skills.
Technical interview questions are usually logic questions, which include probability questions. It is helpful to have the ability to do basic mental math with decent multiplication, estimation, and division skills for some of these questions. This is because sometimes they will require you to give an estimation that is at least near the actual answer so that the interviewer can see that you are capable of reaching this type of answer. Common starter jobs, for example, working a cash register, will have technical interview questions that pertain to customer service and how to handle an unhappy customer. You should also be able to make change without using the cash register’s answer just in case there is a malfunction with the equipment.
Technical interviews are generally used to assess candidates for technical or specialist graduate job positions such as web development. In this article, I shall discuss the top 40 HTML interview questions that you can encounter in almost every web development technical interview.

These are the commonly asked questions. Note that competence and compatibility are the two key factors in a decision to hire and it’s true that companies tend to take on people that they like. If you are able to talk to them as a knowledgeable equal (or superior) in a subject that they know and like talking about, you build the all-important ‘rapport’ with your interviewer as you talk about common problems you’ve both met and solved. As the rapport builds, so do your chances of being offered the job!
