Recently, I attended an Interview for HRI Properties for a position in their IT department.
I had to go there building in downtown New Orleans. When I entered the building I had to sign in at the front desk and wait in the lobby till the interviewer was ready for me. I arrived early so I waited about twenty minutes till he was ready to interview me. I thought it was going to be a one on one interview; However, I was wrong. I arrived in the conference room there was a long conference table something that you only see on television. I sat down near the head of the table and there were two guys doing the interview. The first guy that was interviewing me was their lead IT person giving me trouble shooting problems that I had to solve on the spot. I believe I did fairly well, but I did not know one of the questions. I told him that I did not know the answer to the question; however, if you give me time I will find the answer to the problem. After he was doing giving me troubleshooting questions, the other interviewer began talking to me. This person was more worried about my character asking me personal questions. I think he was asking me these questions to see the type of person I was. I remember him asking me one question and that question was, what my biggest weakness is? At this point I am being truthful and I told him that one of my biggest weakness was asking for help, but I am always trying to work on that. Throughout the interview process there were a lot of pros and of course there were cons. Some of the pros that I received from this interview was be prepared for the unexpected. I was not prepared for being interviewed by two different people; it was a great experience gained. Being truthful in an…...

Speed Dating Techniques in Mock Interviews: Lessons to Be Learned

...Speed Dating Techniques in Mock Interviews: Lessons to be Learned Sofia Vidalis, Ph.D. and Joseph J. Cecere, Ph.D., CPC Penn State Harrisburg Abstract A student seeking that professional position or practical summer experience has become enormous in their educational experience. A university provides the information and skills for the student so they can be successful in their job search. This may include resume preparation and cover letters towards the next step, the job interview. A mock interview is one way to prepare students for an actual employment interview. It allows students to gain experience and practice in answering questions similar to ones asked during an actual interview. It also helps students become more comfortable in the interview setting. Despite of the importance of mock interviews, most college students do not have that experience until their first job interview during a career fair, internship, or even after graduation. However, in today’s economic, interview preparation may be the determining factor to securing employment. One way in breaking the ice of interviewing jitters is to prepare the students in advance. The Civil Engineering/Structural Design and Construction Engineering Technology program at Penn State University held a Mock Interview and Panel Discussion event to help students better prepare for an interview as realistic as possible. This was accomplished by inviting professionals from the industry from the construction management and......

Mock Interview

...October 30, 2013 To: Erin L. Ellsworth, PhD From: Joseph B. Connor Subject: Information Interview Report As you have requested, I’ve investigated the public accounting profession and conducted an interview with somebody in the field. Information on the accounting profession The professional title for public accountants is Certified Public Accountant or commonly known as CPA. The position involves auditing companies by making sure that their financial statements match the actual transactions made by the company in a given period. Certified Public Accountants must graduate with a B.A. in accounting, earn a MAcc (Master of Accountancy), and pass the CPA exams. Upon receiving the title of a CPA, career opportunities are endless. A majority of people receive jobs with the “big 4” public accounting firms that are KPMG, Ernst and Young, PWC, and CBIZ (Bell). Others choose to work for companies that are large enough to have accounting departments. An average salary for someone who passed the CPA is around $60,000 which is dramatically larger compared to the average total occupations salary ( Background of interviewee I interviewed Mike Chalfant on October 30, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. Mike Chalfant works for a public accounting firm called KPMG. The KPMG Kansas City branch is located at 1000 Walnut St in downtown Kansas City.

Mock Interview

...Eric Solis December 4, 2014 MAR4354 Mock Interview When conducting a mock interview such as this one, I found it a little difficult to come up with questions to ask for the interview. I realized that it wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be to be on the other side (to be the one coming up with the questions). But after being the interviewer, I found it easier to be the one asking the questions rather than being the interviewee; the one answering the questions. As the interviewee, I realized some things that I had never noticed before. I watched the video of the interview and it came to my attention that I am one of those people who tend to use the phrase “um” a lot. I thought I used that phrase a couple of times throughout my interview but as I looked back at the footage, it was certainly more than just a couple of times. I now know that this is one thing that I for sure need to work on and with that comes practice. Another thing I would like to comment on about my interview would be my eye contact. I did make eye contact with the interviewer but not at all times. I know it’s okay to not constantly have your eyes glued to that person but in the video it shows that I could have made more eye contact. To me, hand gestures are good when speaking but only to a certain extreme. I need to work on doing a little less on the hand gestures and a little more on the eye contact. Other than those minor things, I feel like I did extremely well. I answered each question with......

Mock Scholarship

...Dear Mock Healthcare Scholarship Foundation, My name is Fatima Hawkins and I’m pursing a degree in diagnostic medical sonography. I’ve always been interested in working in the medical field and was first very interested in nursing. What brought me to sonography was having 2 babies and thinking how awesome I thought it was to see my children’s face in 4D. Though my number 1 main reason for choosing this field was because of the death of my little cousin when he was only 9 years old. He had a tumor that could’ve been treated but by the time they found out what it was, it was too late. I’d love being the reason someone has another chance at life by being careful and making sure I report anything I believed was malignant. I’ve been volunteering my time at a thrift store in my area called The Closet of Greater Herndon for the last 2 years now and have also been an encouragement to 2 of my friends to go back to school and never give up on their dreams and goals. My friend Jazmin will enroll the next semester coming up while my other friend Deanee is already enrolled and haven’t been in school for 10 years! She told me the reason for her going back is because of the encouragement I gave her and also letting her know she can do it no matter how long she’s been out of school. My current GPA is a 2.9 and I’m currently working on making it as high as I possibly can with honors. If I’m awarded this scholarship I plan on pursing my degree until I get my doctorate. I do not plan......

Mock Arbitration

...Mock Arbitration In the case of Kevin Hire vs Management, the union and employee would like to have Mr. Kevin Hire’s suspension from work discharged, on the account that it did not comply with the disciplinary procedures in his contract. The management however, believes that the disciplinary action taken was applicable to Mr. Hire’s actions in the workplace. The employees’ supervisor, Olive Martinez, suspended the said employee after he refused a lawful and direct order to transport a post-surgery patient from a gurney to a bed. Instead, Mr. Hire chose to clock out and go home despite being warned of the consequences. The hospital management feels that he not only knowingly refused to do part of his job but he also completely neglected the patient on a gurney in the hallway after surgery. Therefore, in the management’s opinion the suspension of Kevin Hire was a fair disciplinary action especially since this is not his first time acting unprofessional in the workplace. In conclusion, the management’s main views on the situation are: 1)The employee has been verbally warned and noted by his supervisor for other minor unprofessional workplace behaviors such as taking extended breaks. Although, management does acknowledge that there are no written documentations of said warnings. 2)Management has never received any documentation or doctor’s note about grievance's back injury and therefore has no evident reason or obligation to accommodate with him or to believe they are......
