How to prepare for a job interview: The key to being an excellent worker

The first question you’re going to ask at the interview is: What do you do?

In other words, what do you have in your spare time?

That can make or break your chances of landing a job.

A good answer to this question should include an activity you love, an activity that has been your hobby or interest for a long time, and hobbies and interests you enjoy.

A job applicant should also be honest about their hobbies and interest in those hobbies, but not so much that they are just looking for a part-time job.

There are several other skills you can include in your resume to help you land a job:  1.

Knowledge of your skills and your field 2.

A passion for your chosen field, for example, an interest in chemistry, or a love of reading 3.

A love for helping others 4.

An interest in a community that can benefit from your skills 5.

An ability to work well with others 6.

A desire to be a good friend and a good neighbor 7.

A willingness to work long hours and to help others 8.

The ability to get along with other people 9.

An understanding of your own strengths and weaknesses 10.

A strong work ethic.

If you’re not looking for part-timers, you can also include hobbies or interests that are not related to your job.

For example, a person who loves to cook, but does not want to cook at home, could include cooking or baking as an activity in her resume.

In addition, you could also include a hobby you enjoy that is not a part of your job search.

If it is a hobby that you have not already picked up, you should mention it on your resume, too.

So if you love to cook and baking, include that in your list of hobbies or interest. 

2.

The type of job you want 3.

Your salary range 4.

What experience you have worked at this employer 5.

Your desired experience level 6.

How many years experience you plan to have in this position 7.

Your current position 8.

What skills are you looking for to gain experience? 

If you’re interested in a job in your field, you might want to include the type of employer you’re applying to.

For instance, you’d want to tell employers that you’d like to work in a research laboratory, but also include information on how to find jobs in other industries. 

3.

Job openings you have already applied for 4.

How interested are you in applying to a job 5.

If possible, describe your current job 6.

If not, describe how you will continue to work if you are offered a position in the same industry you’ve been applying to  7.

Do you plan on working in this field for a while? 

In this part, employers can ask you a series of questions, which are intended to help them make a decision about your ability to perform the job.

One of the most important questions to ask is this:  What’s the best way to prepare yourself for this position? 

You can also write a short essay about why you’re a good fit for this job. 

For example, you may say that you’re an outstanding teacher who can help students learn by watching and following a lesson.

Or you may describe your skills as an effective communication strategist who can make people feel at ease and in control.

You could also describe how the job is important to you, and what you’re looking for in your boss. 

If your answer is clear, the employer should then make a determination about whether or not you’re the right fit.

The answer to the first question is usually the most accurate, as employers are interested in hearing about your skills, interests, and career path. 

The second question is not always as important as the first.

It’s important to say, for instance, that you would love to be an administrator, and to explain that you’ll be involved in a wide range of activities in the field. 

4.

How long do you plan your time in the job? 

The employer can ask this question because the answer is often what determines whether or how long you’ll work in this job or not.

You might want your answer to be short, but the employer may also want you to elaborate on your plans for your time at the job, such as how many hours per week you plan and what your hours will be. 5.

Are you a candidate for a position?

 If the employer does not have a record of you applying for a particular position, but you have an interest or skills that could be of use to the company, it’s a good idea to include this information in your answers. 

6.

What type of experience do you hold? 

Employers may be looking for someone with a bachelor’s degree in a field like a medical field, accounting, computer science, or some other related field, and that might be a reasonable position for someone who doesn’t have a college
