A military is an association certified by its country to use force, usually including use of weapons, in defending its country or by attacking other countries by combating actual or perceived threats. The military also states that it used to refer to any property or aspect of a military. Militaries often function as societies within societies, by having their own military communities, economies, education, medicine and other aspects of a functioning civilian society.
Here, in this article, I am focusing on the various questions and answers asked by the interviewer while you are facing the interview of the Military.
1. What do you mean by the term Military?
Sir, the military typically refers to a country’s armed forces or sometimes, more specifically, to the senior officers who command them. In general it refers to the physicality of armed forces, their personnel, equipment and physical area which they occupy.
2. How has your military knowledge prepared you for this position?
This is one question that you should answer for yourself. Interviewer is looking for transferable skills. Make a list of all the skills and experiences you are offering. Try to match them to the job opening requirements. Many skills such as communications, budgeting, managing and training are transferable. Be prepared to tell a short story to illustrate how you used skills in military and how you can see yourself applying these same skills in the civilian workplace.
3. How so far have you been looking for this job?
Sir, I am searching for the new job after being discharged from the service. I have learned the new skills while serving in the U.S. Army or Navy or Marines and I wanted to make sure that I chose a career path that would take me where I want to go in life. I have been in actual job search for the last few weeks. I have a definite goal in mind and have been selective about the positions I consider. Your company and this position are of great interest to me. Any how I want to serve the nation through my excellent skills so far.
4. Why do you want to be in this organization?
Sir, I want to be in this organization as I have been very careful about the companies where I have applied. When I saw the ad for this position I found myself fully eligible for this job. I also wanted to give my seven years of knowledge and leadership experience to such organization which is far better. I think this is one of that. Also I want to deliberate my ability to communicate and build customer relationships.
Since, these are the basic and the most crucial questions that can be asked in the interview.
