I recently went for an interview, and the interviewer asked me following questions:
1.What are the components of Organisational Development. I told him I am not an MBA but still he wanted me to answer this.
2.How do you analyse a person and his resume.
3.What all do we see in general in a resume to shortlist the candidate.
4.What all questions to ask in an interview.
5.How will we measure stability and if we get a genuine answer from the candidate, how will we know if his answer was really genuine or not. I mean if the candidate has really given a valid answer.
Would request you to please answer the following questions.

It is evident that this interviewer is not professional. It is also presumed from the questions that he is not so keen to hire you.
Please do not join a company who do not show professionalism at interviews.

Please let me know what is the position you applied - Is it HR - or Recruitment analysis ? Rajiv ..

it can be done by just comparing the resume of the employee including the Degree, job titles, years of experiences compared with the vacancy for the post in the company. So that , the task and responsibilities given to him/her should be properly maintained and the progress happens with respect to time. For Ex- if there is a vacancy for a software engg in the company - you must search the resume of the employee who is BE-Computer , worked related with Software development, not the B. Pharma Degree holder with years of experiences in Pharmaceutical exports.
Hope you understand that , why the question being asked to you ..

Hi shweta

I just went through your query i dont know where u went for interview and at what post but there is nothing unusual in these questions as they can be answered . There are more complex question that can be asked and some i have faced anyways i would like to try to answer some of these

2) A person can be analysed on the basis of his behaviour, gestures, posture in an interview for example if a he is not maintaining eye contact and thinks a lot while giving answer it means he is a confused person who lacks confidence. For analysing resume first of all the career objective mention should be analysed then one should analyse the experience person had such as the time period person has worked in different industry, whether he has worked for suitable time period or frequently switched his job if he has switched job at very short period may be he easily gets bored and is job hopper , if he is not experienced project work can be analysed etc

3) education should match to job applied for, experience if fresher then project works, achievements, references

4)questions to be asked in interview depends upon the job one is taking interview for if job is of sales question that analyse persons presentation skills, problem solving skills and communication skills should be asked

5) stability can be analysed by seeing his past records more information can be gathered by reference given if doubt is there can be appointed on probation first

hope i am able to give somewhat satisfactory answer if any thing is wrong kindly correct me
