Stuff like "where do you see yourself in x years time?", can never answer that shit. Cringing thinking about it.
And begun to have maximise both my personal potential and my value to my future employer while continuing to develop personally and professionally. Of course, we will be living in thrall of the squid people by then, but I see myself in a good place in 5 years time."
My gf is just out of an interview for a job she really, really wants. I've been nervous on her behalf all morning.
Try and not be yourself.
you don't have to come up with anything original or even totally true. You know what kind of questions are going to come up, so try and plan good answers in advance so you don't panic.
So I'm just sticking with my original assumption that it is.
i'm still really crap though. need to learn to speak assertively rather than constantly stopping & looking at the interviewers for prompting/reassurance
to get a job at wetherspoons? Id say you were a pro..
...for you to grill them - it's not a one-way street; are THEY good enough for YOU to want to work for?
they said that to me at the beginning, pretty much verbatim.
I have some bad news for you...
"...doing this job?"
I didn't get it.
Maybe they know I'm still in bed watching peep show
What are you in this organsation? Squares?"
Got a second interview. What do they ask at second interviews? I've only ever had interviews for shit jobs before.
INTERVIEWER: where do you imagine yourself in seven years?
TUMNUS ROCKERFELLER: I see the clouds turning to metal hexagons in the sky above, the blue becoming blood red and yet never truly stopping in its changing just ever getting redder and redder beyond the human mind's capability to comprehend such redness. The trees begin to writhe about and the wind emerges and I look about and see the people are not surprised but they bow down as if they'd known all along. The dogs start to vomit up smaller dogs and the smaller dogs vomit up life-size Richard Nixons but they are swiftly impeached by a massive cow called Rogny and then Rogny tells me how I can win millions on the lottery he just says buy the tickets and if you get all the numbers then you'll win millions of money on the lottery I tell her that he has changed my life but then I find she has disappeared and in her place is a brick with a note attached to it that just displays a barcode and a small picture of an orchid never seen by any living human only by the ghosts trapped in purgatory ever looking through the screen of non-existence never able to truly immerse their death-dulled sensoria in the wonders of that orchid. In a way it makes me cry thinking about it but then I remember something I saw on TV and I have a massive laugh and it's really embarrassing because the Illuminati can see me and they say this was all part of ther big plan and I'm like oh that explains it and they say no it doesn't because -- and they take their masks off and it turns out that they're all just normal people, Rogny was just a normal cow and actually all of what I just saw was an elaborate work of fiction that had been millenia in the making. Nothing strange had really happened in my life and yet surely that play that elaborately planned fiction had existed in some form in real life and I tell you it changed my life. It's the whole reason I got into the Quo anyway
INTERVIEWER: The other guy had never used Excel before so when can yo start
because I love talking about myself with a legitimate cause to do so.
although I did interview for a job at the MOD once and it was going so swimmingly that I started to turn it into a stand up comedy routine. that didn't work.
Because I've got an interview tomorrow for a job I might actually want for once and I'm nervous
So I'm looking for any tips
