5 :: Explain me what is your experience with CPR and first aid?

This question is fairly straightforward. The interviewer wants to know whether you are currently certified in CPR and AED and whether you have had and on-the-job experience using that certification. If you are not certified, you should get certified before applying. Then, during the interview you can describe your credentials and elaborate on the personal qualities you possess which make you a good candidate for the job. Anyone can get CPR certified, so demonstrate what it is that makes you uniquely fit for the position. Maybe it’s your compassion, your physical fitness, or your specialized knowledge of performing CPR on infants and young children htat sets you apart. Consider what makes you uniquely qualified, and use that information to help the hiring manager see you as the best applicant above and beyond your training in CPR.

7 :: Explain where else have you applied?

This is a good way to hint that you're in demand, without sounding like you're whoring yourself all over town. So, be honest and mention a few other companies but don't go into detail. The fact that you're seriously looking and keeping your options open is what the interviewer is driving at.

8 :: Now let's talk about salary. What are you looking for?

Run for cover! This is one tricky game to play in an interview. Even if you know the salary range for the job, if you answer first you're already showing all your cards. You want as much as possible, the employer wants you for as little as you're willing to take. Before you apply, take a look at salary.com for a good idea of what someone with your specific experience should be paid. You may want to say, "well, that's something I've thought long and hard about and I think someone with my experience should get between X & Y." Or, you could be sly and say, "right now, I'm more interested in talking more about what the position can offer my career." That could at least buy you a little time to scope out the situation. But if you do have a specific figure in mind and you are confident that you can get it, I'd say go for it. I have on many occasions, and every time I got very close to that figure (both below and sometimes above).
