Applying for a job is a process.
With the many changes in the corporate and professional world, especially regarding broad perspectives, there are few employers that would hire an employee based on just a single job interview. Employees work with many other employees, and have multiple superiors – all must work together.
Additionally, there are so many applicants for so few positions that companies have naturally toughened the application processes and raised their job requirements.
This has given rise to newer methods of interviewing and hiring which has become a process, comprised of several interviews, following which the interviewer eventually selects one candidate from the many applicants.
This article discusses some final job interview questions, with ideas and tips on how to answer these questions.
As the name suggests, the final interview is the last interview, in which the interviewer feels free to ask about anything job-related that was not yet addressed; it is the last step before hiring.
Final Round Interview Questions and Answers
Tips for the Final Interview
Here are some tips:
1. Would you like to ask any questions?
This is your final opportunity to ask any questions about the job, the company and the way that the company conducts their business. It is a good idea to clarify any doubts you may have.
Normally, at this stage you will know how the company works, understand their vision and mission, and have a good idea as your anticipated specific duties and core responsibilities. If you have any doubts, this is the time to ask.
Of course, once you are hired by the company, the company will hold a meeting with you and inform you in great detail regarding your key responsibilities.

2. What are your financial aspirations?
Once you have reached the final interview stage, the financial matters come into play.
Of course, remuneration certainly plays an important role in your, and whether the company hires you or not. Once you have reached this stage, you must discuss financial aspects, and what salary the company is thinking of paying you.
Needless to say, this matter is best approached very subtly. It should not appear that you are only interested in the financial aspect of the job. In fact, if you play your cards right, the company and the interviewer will ask you what your financial queries are. If you have a good idea of the salary range normally paid for the position, it may be to your advantage to mention an amount – clearly in the high end of the range – before they offer. If it is a bit higher than they were prepared to offer, they may just go ahead and agree.

3. Would you like to add anything about yourself?
While the final interview is the final interaction between the interviewer and the interviewee, this does not mean that the interviewer would not be testing the interviewee till the last moment.
One other question that the interviewer might ask is whether the interviewee would like to add something to the conversation, or even ask the interviewee about what they liked about the way the interview took place and what they did not, if the interviewee is experienced and knows what the corporate world and the world of hiring is all about.
If asked to add any information about yourself, you should make sure that you once again point out all the positive aspects that make you a good option for the profile. Remember that if you are at the final interview, you have already beaten many people in the race for this position and there are many chances that the final interview is only a formality, as you are already hired and they have only called the final interview for taking documents and other papers regarding your professional life.
