24 When can you start? 

At the end of the interview, most employers ask candidates this question. But this does not always mean that you have to joy that you have been accepted. Yes, of course, the interviewer wants to know when you’re ready to start working for the company. But they will also pay attention to how you answer the question. 

Possible answers to “When can you start?”:

“I’m ready to start working on demand/from the date you will appoint.

I’m ready to work. I can even start right now.

I can start working next Monday, December 5.” 

Tips for answering the question “When can you start?”: 

  • In any case, you must show your enthusiasm and desire to get to work as soon as possible.
  • It is best to answer this question truthfully. After all, if the employer expects you to start working immediately and you confirm his hopes, but do not justify it, then your opinion about you will initially worsen. 
  • Prepare your answer for this one of the most popular interview questions before being asked. 

What mistakes should not be made when answering the question “When can you start?”: 

  • Being afraid to say if you know it will take time for you to finish the previous work. 
  • If you have not yet left your old job, you need to be tactful in your answer. In this case, this question may be one step in checking your ethics level. If you leave your current job without a twinge of conscience, the new employer may think you can do the same with them in the future.
