Icebreakers at a job interview

Interviewer: Interviewee:
Please, have a seat. As you know, our company is looking for … (a project manager)   I am really into working for your organisation. It has an excellent reputation.  
Interview questions: Possible answers:
Why do you think you suit for this position? I am able to get people to work together as a team. I think with my experience I can contribute to the company’s success.
What are your strengths? I get on well with people. I'm good at managing people.
Could you tell us about your weaknesses? What mistakes have you made? I'm not really patient when people don't meet deadlines. I expect too much of people who work for me. I have high standards and get impatient when people don’t do their job properly. But I am trying to learn to be more patient.
What kind of people do you work well with? As a team leader, I have to work with all kinds of people. But I like working with reliable and creative people.
Could you tell me about your interests? I like travelling, and I like discovering new cultures. I also like aerobics and skiing. I spend a lot of time playing sports at the weekend, and I'm keen on fitness, so I go to the gym a lot.
Do you have any questions? If I get the job, when would you like me to start?

Phrases for a natural conversation:

I see...

Can I ask you about your (interests/experience/weaknesses etc.)

That's very interesting, indeed.

What do you mean?

I'd like to find out if …/ I wonder whether ...

I think I understand what you mean.

It's a tricky question, isn't it?

Finishing the interview:

That's about all. We'll keep in touch with you.

We need to think before we make a final decision.

We'll call you as soon as possible.
