InterviewQuestions-Aug2019.png

Preparing well before an interview will definitely help you get a step closer to securing your desired role. One of the things that you might need to get ready for is to know the common job interview questions you are likely to be asked. It’s worth spending time in advance to research sample questions and consider that as a guide that you can use to practice your responses.

 

Be aware that interview questions are asked for very important reasons and are mutually beneficial to both the job seeker and prospective employer. As a job seeker, you get a chance to highlight your skills, knowledge, abilities, accomplishments, and communicate your thought process and at the same time, the employer will get to know more of you beyond what you have written on your resume.

 

“There are two elements to nailing a job interview: form and substance. 'Form' describes the outer layer of your character - your manners, your demeanor, your social skills. 'Substance' describes the inner core of your character - your intellect, your empathy, your creativity.”




Neil Blumenthal, Businessman

 


When you are given the cue that the interview is done, you may also ask questions because doing so actually demonstrates your eagerness in the role you’re applying for.

 

Get to know the job intimately that you're applying for.

Don't just read the job description - study it and picture yourself performing every task required of you. When you interview, framing your responses so that you reveal your significant knowledge about the job gives you a massive advantage.




― Travis Bradberry, Author

Here are some common interview questions and some tips on how to respond:



Tell me about yourself


You can provide a combination of personal and professional information about yourself that is aligned with the role you applied for, in order to show how you might be a strong candidate. As much as possible, try to share new information but make it strong and concise to gain the attention and interest of the interviewer.



Why do you want to work for the company?

 

Show your sincerity and your commitment to perform once you’re hired. Think more about what you can do for the company rather than what the company can do for you. This idea should help you provide a good answer to this question.

 

One of the most common mistakes for an entry-level job interview is to take the position: 'What is this job going to do for me?' You should be saying 'Here's what I can do and here's what I want to do to help you.'




― Norah O'Donnell, Journalist

 


What motivates you?

 

Think of example scenarios when you know you know you have achieved something important to you and the things you did to overcome the obstacles you faced. Providing some concrete scenarios will show the interviewer how you were motivated to succeed.

 

The best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.




― Theodore Roosevelt

GoalsHigh-Aug2019.png

Whatever your dreams and aspirations are, believe that you can pursue them! Do not wait for the right time because RIGHT NOW is the perfect time to take action.

 

“Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them.”


“By taking the time to stop and appreciate who you are and what you've achieved - and perhaps learned through a few mistakes, stumbles and losses - you actually can enhance everything about you. Self-acknowledgment and appreciation are what give you the insights and awareness to move forward toward higher goals and accomplishments.”




Jack Canfield

 


When you set higher goals, you will:

Develop the courage to break out of your comfort zone.

When you build your self-confidence and self-esteem, you will not be afraid to make big plans in life. You will also be more willing to face challenges and take calculated risks in order to reach your goals without compromising the quality of your work and also making sure you are accountable for your actions.

 

“Positive thinking is a valuable tool that can help you overcome obstacles, deal with pain, and reach new goals.”




Amy Morin

 


Always strive to enhance your performance
so you give 110% effort in everything you do while maintaining your focus and efforts in the right direction. Higher goals motivate You to always do your best and people around you get inspired to do the same. You become more creative, develop problem-solving techniques and are more inspired to improvise and innovate

 

You are in the time of your life for studying and preparing. Learn all you can. Growth comes from setting your goals high and reaching for the stars.




― Spencer W. Kimball



Become more driven to create new benchmarks

Benchmarking is a tool that organisations use in order to measure the performance of their products and services to other organisations in the same industry. While this process is frequently used in a variety of professional settings, this can be applied in our daily personal lives as well. We might not notice it but there are times that we compare ourselves to others. This is simply a way for us to evaluate ourselves and see how we are tracking compared to our peers. It’s common practice, after all, competition exists everywhere we go! It’s certainly intrinsic human nature to desire to perform better and become the top person in our field of work.

 

“Set your goals high, and don't stop till you get there.”




Bo Jackson, Athlete



“Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.”




Jim Rohn

WinnerWithin-Aug2019.png

Go the extra mile

 

When you try to give 110% effort in everything you do, you can definitely go further, and perhaps even go beyond the previous benchmarks that you have set. Always deliver more than expected. Constantly push the boundaries. There are no limits to what you can accomplish!

 

“If you're going to be a winner in life, you have to constantly go beyond your best.”




― Robert Kiyosaki,

Businessman and Author of Rich Dad Poor Dad


Uncover your potential using self-affirmation

 

When you work towards your goals, sometimes self-doubt and the fear of failure can get in the way and you feel discouraged as a result of the prolonged negative thinking. Escape this pattern and start using self-affirmations to gain the confidence you need to succeed. There are already so much negativity around us so we need to balance everything out and use affirmations as our mental vitamins to improve our mindset.

 

“Regardless of how you feel inside, always try to look like a winner. Even if you are behind, a sustained look of control and confidence can give you a mental edge that results in victory.”




― Diane Arbus, Photographer

 

Practice is everything

 

The more you do something, the better you get at doing it. Practicing effectively is the only way to excel so if you want to develop important skills, you need to have the patience to practice.

 

“Winners embrace hard work.”


“No matter what happens on the field,

getting an education makes you a winner.”



Lou Holtz,

Former Football Player, Coach, and Analyst



When at first you don’t succeed, don’t give up easily! Quitting will not solve anything. You may not be able to beat the odds on your first try but you need to let your challenges shape you, don’t let them bring you down. They are building blocks of life that gives you the opportunity to grow and flourish.

 

The mind is powerful. When you establish and continue to develop the right belief system, you will find yourself winning victory after victory while overcoming your weaknesses at the same time. Learn how to face and conquer your fears. Don’t tread lightly. Always keep the momentum up!

 

The road that leads to success may be long and winding, but it doesn’t really matter how you travel; as long as you have the right mindset, your personal journey will be a more meaningful and enjoyable experience. 

 

The winner's edge is not in a gifted birth, a high IQ, or in talent. The winner's edge is all in the attitude, not aptitude. Attitude is the criterion for success.




Denis Waitley,

Motivational Speaker, Writer and Consultant

TrueToYourself-Aug2019-600x300.png
Do you feel that what you are right now is a genuine reflection of the real you?


Learn more about yourself by doing regular daily reflections. Give yourself the opportunity to grow and develop by constantly allowing your mind to explore the positive side of things by means of introspection. There is simply no better way to discover who you really are. Always listen to your inner voice. Don’t let your attention be drawn to what other people say. You don’t need to change because of what society is dictating you. You don’t need to conform to any stereotype.

Be true to yourself. Make each day a masterpiece. 

Help others. Drink deeply from good books.

Make friendship a fine art. Build a shelter against a rainy day.




John Wooden, Coach



“Stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learn. Work hard, and never give up on your dreams, even when nobody else believes they can come true but you. These are not cliches but real tools you need no matter what you do in life to stay focused on your path.”




― Phillip Sweet, Musician



It's so important to be true to yourself and to own your own character and take responsibility for it, and speak up and say, ‘This isn't right; this isn't me.’ It's a great lesson in life.




Becky Lynch, Athlete




Be true to the game, because the game will be true to you. 

If you try to shortcut the game, then the game will shortcut you. If you put forth the effort, good things will be bestowed upon you. That's truly about the game, and in some ways that's about life too.




Michael Jordan

Prepared-July2019.png

The future is uncertain. You can never predict what will happen and you can never totally avoid unpleasant circumstances but it’s best practice to always be ready for whatever comes your way. Preparation can save you a lot of time and headache and you will feel confident that you can rise above all the possible struggles and trials that you will face.

 

You have to rely on your preparation. You got to really be passionate and try to prepare more than anyone else, and put yourself in a position to succeed, and when the moment comes you got to enjoy, relax, breathe and rely on your preparation so that you can perform and not be anxious or filled with doubt.




Steve Nash

 

 

Lord Baden-Powell, a soldier, educator, and prolific writer established the modern Scouting movement which is a service-minded and values-based program that prepares young people for life. We don’t have to become scouts to be ready for anything, but we can apply the same philosophy in life - Let’s properly equip ourselves to react quickly to an emergency and whatever challenges await us.

 

“Be Prepared... the meaning of the motto is that a scout must prepare himself by previous thinking out and practicing how to act on any accident or emergency so that he is never taken by surprise.”




Robert Baden-Powell

 

 

There are so many ways to prepare for anything that’s likely to come in daily life such as economic downturns, layoffs or terminations, financial hardships, relationship problems, sickness, natural disasters, power outages, medical emergencies, accidents or loss of a loved one. While no one can be completely prepared for these things, we can still start to get our affairs in order. We can start thinking about Plan A to Z, and learn how to manage risks as best we could.

 

No matter how much we plan or prepare for something, we may encounter many things that we cannot control. When this happens, sometimes it’s best to just face the fact and accept that there is nothing we can do about it, so we have to move on and think of different ways to approach the situation. We can even try to improvise and innovate.

 

“Prevention is better than cure.”



Desiderius Erasmus

 

Planning and preparation are absolutely essential but it’s also something that’s usually neglected.   We don’t know when disaster will strike. It takes a lot of self-discipline to prepare for contingency but it definitely pays off! 

 

We shouldn't just live for today; we should prepare for tomorrow.



Kent Conrad
