Like most job interviews, a project management interview will include behavioural questions to determine how you would perform in any given situation.
Your interview will also include competency-based questions that test you on essential project management skills such as planning, scheduling, organization, problem-solving, team-building, negotiation, communication, adaptability, and leadership.
The overall goal is for your project to come in on-time and on-budget (or under-time and under-budget) with a high-quality result.
Some example questions could be:
Tell me about your experience in managing different projects.Tell me about a time you managed a diverse team and arrived at a successful or unsuccessful project.Describe the most complex project you have managed from start to finish.What do you use to set realistic schedules for the project?How do you go about selecting and allocating resources?How often do you update stakeholders and how do you communicate those updates?What are your risk management procedures?What project management methodologies are you familiar with?What project management software have you used?How would you close a project?Make sure when you are doing your research that you go over any past projects you have undertaken and know the details thoroughly enough to explain to your interviewer whilst being specific with the information, they do not want a big long tale just the facts of the project from conception to delivery.
