The 3 Job Interview Questions You SHOULD Be Asking

Job interview questions. Nothing inspires more shock and awe than when a corporate recruiter or HR manager asks the dreaded, "do you have any questions?"

This, of course, follows after the monologue you've been practicing all week about why you're the perfect candidate for this position and why they should hire you. Most people fall short when it comes to asking questions, either due to nervousness or not really know what to ask. Thankfully, however, FastCompany recently released an article regarding the "3 Killer Job Interview Questions Entry-Level Candidates Forget to Ask". Here's a quick recap, but be sure to check out the article! 

  1. Ask about what success looks like for entry-level candidates. It's a good way to show you're not only interested in the outcome the position may afford you but it's also a strong question to ask that makes you show your value to the company.
  2. Ask about the team and company culture. By doing this you show you're already assessing how you'd fit into the core of the company's culture. It's a very good question to ask because you might not fit in if it's a new-ish startup versus a classic company culture.
  3. Ask how you can get off on the right foot. This way you can prepare yourself for any unexpected hurdles or glitches. It'll also endear you to the company because of your cognizance of how an average day in the office is like.

If you still feel anxious about an upcoming job interview, why not come in and see us? Our career coaches are here to help you succeed. Best of all, with our new office, we're more than willing to schedule you in!

The Power of Support in Transitions

Most people do not like change, and I’m one of them. However, life sometimes has big surprises, and we have to do things differently in order to reach our goals at work or in life. Change is unavoidable, but how you go through this process can make a huge difference in the final outcome. You have to do “it” (the change) yourself, but you do not need to do it BY YOURSELF, and this is where do-over.me’s Guiding Lights volunteer mentor program comes into place, as it offers clients a great resource in their journey to reach the future they want.

This program was conceptualized from this quote by Albert Schweitzer: “Sometimes our light goes out, but is blown again into flame by an encounter with another human being. Each of us owes the deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this inner light.”

Guiding Lights at do-over.me was created as a way to provide that extra measure of support to all during those difficult times of change. As a volunteer in this program, you can become a much-needed source of support to people who would welcome a partner that can be there when you need somebody to keep you going. This unique relationship is designed to help illuminate the innate potential for positive change in people and provide practical tools that can be used by all in their career and life journey.

Recently I became involved with the Guiding Lights program at do-over.me because I believe in the power of support and accountability in times of changes. And this experience has enriched my life in many different ways. I learned about different cultures and experiences and improved mu questioning and listening skills; I also had great joy in supporting another person in realizing their dream. Having somebody who can pick you up when you need encouragement and keep you on track to reach goals makes a huge difference in a person’s long-term success. You can have this same experience by getting involved in our Guiding Lights program.

Are you ready to find a rewarding way to use your talents in the service of others? The Guiding Lights volunteer program at do-over.me could be the path for you! 

Please visit www.do-over.me.com for more information on the program and to complete an application.  Want to talk with somebody?  You can reach me at (630) 484-1934.

Learning to Lead

A can-do attitude and a willingness to learn are traits we can all adopt from the best business school graduates, says former executive editor of Fast Company and Bloomberg Businessweek, John A. Byrne, "They accepted that they didn’t have all the answers or that every deliverable need not be perfect. These leaders understood that they were just starting out and could make mistakes.”
