Hello, today I got the answer concerning my job shadowing related to the company where I am working. Do I ask them to teach me about all the topics or just some topics according to my major ?, what can please be a best answer to this email?
Are they supposed to ask you why you got fired or let go from your previous job? I hope to the gods they aren’t I’m so nervous
I had FMLA in place at my last job. Should I wait to be hired to bring this up, or should I state this in interviews? I feel withholding this information is somehow wrong! My last Job everyone had 30-minutes for lunch. My lunch had to be an hour sometimes a little longer, this also covered occasional appointments.
One of the most common questions asked during an interview or at a job fair is…
Can you tell me about yourself?
Other variations could include: -Why should we hire you? -Why do you want to work here? -Tell us who you are. -What is it about us that makes you want to work here?
Just know that employers are not looking for you to actually tell them about your personal life like your favorite shows or how awesome your children are. They are expecting you will tell them about yourself and give them a brief overview of who you are, professionally speaking.
You should be ready with a one-minute answer that summarizes where you are in your career, generally with an emphasis on your most recent job and the strengths of your approach.
Answer these 5 questions to help you plan what to say and impress employers!
1- What are the three strongest reasons I am a great fit for this job?
2- What are some positive things I can say about the company, and how can I connect what they do with what I can bring to them?
3- Why do I really want this job beyond having a steady paycheck and perks?
4- What are three AWESOME things I did in my previous position that I can also offer in this new role?
5- What is the EXACT job description (make sure to write it down) and how do MY skills match up with it? Be as specific as possible.
Answering these questions will help you feel prepared to go in with some great things to say!
Good luck Chicago ; ) we are rooting for you.
What is your greatest weakness? This common interview question can be very difficult to answer. When I applied to colleges, I was even asked this question.
- Don’t work against yourself. Don’t list too many serious weaknesses and degrade yourself, but if you disguise your weakness as a strength, it can come across not genuine.
- Find a middle ground Answer the question with one of your genuine weaknesses, but then include how your strengths are helping you to improve and overcome this weakness. For example, you could say “One of my weaknesses is that I talk too much, however I am disciplined and focused, so I have been working on keeping my attention on work, not on socializing.”
- Emphasize personal improvement. After mentioning a weakness, always include how you are working on improving it. If you say that you are unorganized, then include that you will buy desk organizers and pencil cases so that you will have a cleaner workspace at your new job. By taking initiative, you will show self-awareness and motivation.
