📌 6 Admin interview questions

Hey! It’s Julie 😊 We’ve got a lot to cover in today’s blog, so I’m just going to dive straight into some of the most common Admin interview questions!

📌What skills can you bring to the role?

Talk about both soft and hard skills. Some of the main skills admin roles look for are organisation, attention to detail, computer and teamwork.

📌Tell me about a time where you demonstrated excellent organisational skills.

Admin Assistants need to have the very best organisational skills. These are all examples of great organisation:

👉Digital folders

👉Paper filing systems

👉Colour coding

👉Categorising

👉Using planners, calendars

👉Setting reminders

📌Talk about a time where you’ve shown great attention to detail.

There’s a lot of room for error in Admin. So it’s super important you show you’ve got a keen eye for detail. Can you talk about a complex project that required careful thought and triple-checking your work?

📌What computer skills do you have?

Show the employer that you’re confident using computers and getting to know new programs. You can talk about touch-typing, using Word, Excel and Powerpoint, and being able to pick up new types of software.

📌How do you work within a team?

Admin work often involves teamwork. Give an example of when you worked as part of a team to achieve a common goal. How did you split the workload? What problems did you overcome? What was the end result?

📌When have you worked under pressure? 

Sometimes you might be snowed under with work. What’s important is being able to prioritise your workload, remaining calm, and having the initiative to ask for help when necessary.
