Can we talk? | Interview Advice & Tips | Scoop.it
Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's insight:

Hey everyone,

 

First of all, just wanted to tell you how honored I am to be part of this this wonderful community! 

 

Over the last year it has been great to talk with many of you through the blog, over the phone or through email. 

 

I am putting together a course to help people with their careers, networking, resumes, and interviewing.  I want to make sure that I really cover everything. (Or atleast what is most important)

 

So can you help me out and tell me what your #1 challenge is, and what information, tools, or guidance would help you?  Not only will this help me to make sure that my course creates maximum value...I want to make sure that I am delivering maximum value to YOU here on scoop.it.

 

Really appreciate your help!!!

It Pays to Ask Smart Questions at a Job #Interview - Wall Street Journal

It Pays to Ask Smart Questions at a Job #Interview - Wall Street Journal | Interview Advice & Tips | Scoop.it
Job seekers spend all of their time preparing answers, but the questions that they ask can be as revealing to hiring managers.
Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's insight:

Asking the right type and the right amount of questions is important.

 

If the interview is with HR, and the interview is a screening interview -- then you should prepare questions that will help you prepare for the next round of interviews.  Questions regarding the position, the team, the goals, if appropriate the supervisor, and the company.

 

If the interview is with the hiring manager of the department, then asking questions about the role to demonstrate your interest in the position and the contributions you plan on bringing to the team is important.

 

Remember guys even if as the interview starts winding down you realize that the particular job is not for you, still move forward and ask some questions.  It is not unusual for the HR team to love you as a candidate, and suggest you for other positions.

 

---If you have any questions, comments, or best practices about careers or leadership…I am on it!  My goal is to share thoughts, tools, and inspiration to help you leverage your strengths, and achieve your goals!  Walt Disney said, "Whatever we have accomplished has been because other people have helped  us."  So don't be afraid to ask for help...that is what I am here for!

 

Until next time...PS - Live on Purpose!

While you may not have much choice about the resume, application, and interview process...you always have a choice of how you approach it.  Remember why you are interviewing, and keep your goals in sight.

Sometimes, it's good to know when to quit...and go another direction. You're not quitting for good--you're quitting because what you've been doing isn't working.  There's a huge difference, and continuing to beat your head against a brick wall isn't going to help at all.

15 Nerve-racking #Job #Interview Questions and How to Answer Them | JobMob

15 Nerve-racking #Job #Interview Questions and How to Answer Them | JobMob | Interview Advice & Tips | Scoop.it
Preparation is the zen of the job interview.
Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's insight:

Great suggestions to read in this article!  Most interviewers who I have come across start with "tell me about yourself", and ask atleast one of the listed questions.

 

Preparation is the key for you to be able to walk confidently into the interview ready to show them the best version of you. 

 

My call to action before any interview: 

 

1) Know why they should hire you, besides your experience.  If you don't know how will the interviewer know. 

 

2)  Review the job description/job posting and prepared to respond to questions related.  If the job lists job duties you are do not have experience with -- the next best thing is to research what the job duty entails, and what is required.  Perhaps you have experience with similar duties that you can explan. 

 

Instead of saying, "no, I do not have experience with xyz software, you can say ...I am familiar with xyz software, at my work we use a similar one which is abc.  If hired for the job, I found an online course on Lynda.com that I would take to be ready on my first day."

 

3)  Get to know the company -- what the company does, accomplishments, recent events, their history, their mission, vision, values, and service philosophy.  So when you are asked, why do you want to work here you should be able to answer sincerely.

 

---If you have any questions, comments, or best practices about careers or leadership…I am on it!  My goal is to share thoughts, tools, and inspiration to help you leverage your strengths, and achieve your goals!  Walt Disney said, "Whatever we have accomplished has been because other people have helped  us."  So don't be afraid to ask for help...that is what I am here for!

I honestly didn't even know that there were college interviews until recently.

Publishing this will help those who aren't confident in their ability to "rock" these interviews. I chose this for that specific reason.

When it comes to #Job #Interviews, Stay Patient and trust your journey

When it comes to #Job #Interviews, Stay Patient and trust your journey | Interview Advice & Tips | Scoop.it
Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's insight:

If you are going through countless interviews now, this quote is for you.  I know that interviews can be like going through endless emotional rollercoaster rides, not to mention nobody likes being rejected.

 

I want to remind you that if you didn't get the job it wasn't about you.  Do your best to take something away from each interview.  Reflect on what you learned, and what you would do differently the next time.  Did you ramble?  Did some questions stump you?  Did you forget to ask questions?  Did you forget to get the business card of the person who was interviewing you?  Decide that you are getting better and more confident each day.  (You will)

 

Remember why you are interviewing, and stay focused on your goal and what success looks like.  The path you are walking is your very own.  Know where you are going, stay focused on your milestones, read the signs along the way, and remember that you are the driver. :)))

 

---If you have any questions, comments, or best practices about careers or leadership…I am on it!  My goal is to share thoughts, tools, and inspriation to help you leverage your strengths, and achieve your goals!  Walt Disney said, "Whatever we have accomplished has been because other people have helped  us."  So don't be afraid to ask for help...that is what I am here for!

By Dr. Howard Gauthier If you are going to get the job, you need to be prepared for your interview. This includes being prepared to answer the interview questions you will be asked. During your interview you will be judged on ...
Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's insight:

I agree that preparation is the key to a successful interview.  The truth is that every interview is different, because every person, role, and company is unique. 

 

The one way to focus efficiently on what you need to know to walk into the interview confident and empowered is to prepare 3 things.  In my interview book I call it a triangle. 

 

The top of the triangle is to know yourself.  That means that you need to know why the employer would hire you.  The top way to feel confident walking into the interview is to know your value.  What are your strengths, what are your traits, what makes you stand apart from all of the other candidates?  Be honest, if you don't know why someone would hire you how will the interviewer know.  Einstein says that if you can't explain it simply you don't know it well enough.

 

The second thing to prepare is the job role.  Go through the job posting bullet by bullet.  If there are any duties, skills, or software you are not familiar with circle them and be ready to discuss similar duties or projects.

 

The third is to know about the company, and if possible the interviewer.  Know what the company does, their mission, vision, values, and service philosophy.  Have they been in the news, have they won recent awards?  Why do you want to work for the company?

 

Hope this article and my advice help to empower not confuse you. 

 

---- If you have any questions around Careers or Leadership...I am on it!  My goal is to share thoughts, tools, and inspiration to help you leverage your strengths, and get to where you want to be faster!  I am grateful and fortunate to work with best in class global organizations and talented leaders, and I love to pass along lessons I gained from my experiences.

PS - Live on Purpose!
