Hey, thanks for coming! Don’t bother taking off your shoes. Would you like a drink? Since this is the internet, order anything you like.
This is the home of The Interview Stage: one woman’s solution to getting an amazing job. You see, I’ve been looking for a job–but not just any job. Something special. Something enviable. You know…one of those jobs. The challenge I’ve been finding is that even if those jobs are advertised, it’s hard to get to the interview stage.
So, I’m taking things into my own hands and building my own stage. And this is where you come in. Since you’re here, it must mean that you’re interested in helping me. Aren’t you nice! Grab a hammer and let’s get building. Here’s what I need from you: your favourite interview question or questions (if you’re over-achieving). This might be:
- The best question you’ve ever been asked
- Your favourite question to ask
- A question you’ve always wanted to ask but couldn’t for some reason
- A question that you’ve heard asked of someone else
Then what I’m going to do is take those questions…and answer ‘em! In video format. What I’ll end up with is a repository of interview questions and answers, from which prospective employers can peruse, learning more about me, what I bring to the table, and how I can help their amazing company.
And that’s basically it. Thanks in advance for your help and participation. Now let’s get this party started…the interview party, that is.
Oh gawd, what have I done.
Here’s where else you can find me:
To get a job you will love you need to get a wonderful match between your personal value system and the values of the company. So understanding both – for real – is the magic sauce. getting this is very tough as you’d need to experience each other over time and in different situations. I guess, like dating. questions that try to get to this is what I would ask and want to be asked. but you need concrete examples that prove that what is being said is real.
Thanks for weighing in, Peter. I was just having this conversation with someone yesterday, actually, about how job interviews are like the most awkward of first dates. So much pressure! Is it reasonable to expect such a huge decision to be made in one conversation? Perhaps not… See you on the ice!
