Handle a Behavioral Interview

Behavioral interview questions are usually designed to match the competencies needed for success in a role (e.g., problem-solving skills, project management skills, relationship building skills, etc.). For instance, if a job requires a person to think strategically, an interviewer might ask them to describe a recent time when they had to define a business strategy.

With that in mind, it’s useful to identify what competencies a job requires so you can prepare accordingly for related interview questions:

• Sometimes formal job descriptions will list the competencies required for a position. If not, Human Resources or the hiring manager for the role will likely share the competencies if asked. It’s certainly OK to ask about the competencies required for success in a role when applying for a position.

• You may also be able to discern the required competencies by closely reviewing the job description and “reading between the lines”, so to speak. In my experience, most job competencies fall into the three broad categories: Thinking (e.g., problem-solving, innovating, etc.), Results (e.g., accountability, time management, etc.), and People (e.g., networking, influencing, etc.). Those categories can be used as a guide for deciphering the competencies underpinning a job description. For example, while reading the job description, you could ask yourself, “What thinking-related competencies seem needed for this role?”, “What results-related competencies seem needed for this role?”, and so on.

Once you’ve identified the competencies required for a job, the next step is to recall instances from your work experience when you evidenced those competencies:

• Recall examples that occurred within the last year or less (the more recent, the better). They’ll be easier to remember and share details about. Further, behavioral interviewers usually require examples to be relatively recent.

• Avoid getting caught-up in trying to identify the biggest, best, or most elaborate example you can think of. I’ve interviewed many people who had difficulty giving examples because they didn’t feel the example was sophisticated or spectacular enough to share. Behavioral interviewers tend to focus more on the how than the what in the examples you provide. For instance, you probably take a similar approach to delegating work whether a project is large or small, but it’d be easier to convey the details of the smaller project when the interviewer asks.

• Don’t let an undesired outcome keep you from sharing what would otherwise be a good example. I see this often, for example, when asking people to describe a time when they had to influence upward (e.g., gain buy-in from senior leadership, change their boss’s opinion, etc.). They hesitate to share an example because they were unsuccessful at influencing upward. However, once they share the example it’s clear (to me as a behavioral interviewer) that their approach to influencing was sound, despite senior leadership choosing not to buy-in.

About Escape The City Jobs

I searched for an answer in the form of an online income stream. If I could make regular money from the internet it would balance out the short falls and quiet times of my other work. Little would I know that it would lead to something even better – a reliable income from the internet.

That was the dream – constant income flowing on tap from automated sources. Unfortunately it took much longer than I expected and I lost a lot of living in the process. I lost some dear friends in the process too. I leaned too heavily on this ‘magic bullet’ of the internet and got burned.

Not that it’s all bad of course. I learned a lot about myself in the process and that’s a good thing. I stuck with it and never gave up – that’s enabled me to continue to learn and earn from the internet.

What Have I learned?

Initially I began with eBay the auction site and I bought and sold items. My room was full of second-hand stuff I had bought from the charity shops and I didn’t shift a lot of it. I was spending a lot of time travelling to and from the post office and standing in queues with my items which needed weighing.

I decided I wasn’t going to get rich by doing this. I was tired and it seemed a lot more hassle than a normal job would have been. I looked into ways of automating product delivery. One way was bulk buying and selling through a single listing on eBay. However this required capital – something which I didn’t have.

I kept buying courses which promised to show me a new and ‘quicker’ way to make money on eBay and the internet! Some of them actually worked but mostly they needed a lot of time and effort. Selling the information was a much better bet until eBay changed their rules about selling digital products.

You used to be able to sell a product on eBay and once you had received payment you could (automatically) send your customer to an automated website where they could download the product. That sounded amazing to me! It meant you didn’t even have to be there in order to take a payment and make a delivery.

Unfortunately eBay changed their rules so you would have to send a physical product rather than simply direct someone to an automatically downloaded product. I started down this line but then discovered affiliate marketing which was basically the same automated process – allowing you to sell digital products online and send customers to a website to enroll in a membership.

Membership products which meant an automated delivery were great products to sell on the internet. When I got my first taste of this working I was very excited! I sent people to a sales page which then converted into a sale. They got instant access to a membership program and I could automate the entire process.

I checked my email the following day after setting up one of these systems and found several sales. It was an amazing moment. Sadly it didn’t last and my AdWords account was shut down. I was devastated and it wasn’t until a long time later, and with another course, that I repeated this success.

Navigate the Job Marketplace

Build Your Network

From the first time you set foot on a job site or in a professional venue where you have the opportunity to interact with construction workers, engineers, subcontractors, and others within your field, you need to focus on building your network. Develop potential connections. Get to know people. Whether you’re just starting out or you know you’re going to be changing jobs soon, building your network is the key to knowing what positions are open and getting your foot in the door.

  • Carry business cards. This may seem like a cliche, but it’s one of the best ways to literally get your name in the right hands.
  • Visit trade shows and talk people there.
  • Get to know the people who are coming to your job sites. You never know when one of them will be ready to offer you your next job.
  • Volunteer. Whether you’re just starting out in construction or you’ve been working in a specialized position for years, there are jobs out there that need to be done. Check out Habitat for Humanity in your community, donate your time to a local school that’s trying to get a building repaired, or work with local churches as they handle building mission trips. Contractors in your community are working there, too–and they’ll take note of your presence and the quality of your work.

Try to Leave on Good Terms

You know that your current job isn’t working out. Your superintendent has a bad attitude, your hours keep you away from your family when you most need to be with them, and the terms of the contract you signed aren’t being adhered to. No matter how bad it is, however, you want to make sure that you leave your current job on good terms. Give appropriate notice, try not to leave in the middle of a project, and keep your work ethic strong even in the last days of your employment instead of trying to “go out with a bang.” The construction and engineering communities in your city are relatively small, and burning your bridges with one company may make it harder for you to get your next job.

Build Your Skills

Both the construction and the engineering industries are experiencing a shortage of qualified individuals to take those open positions. That means that the more skills you have, the more positions are open for you. Taking the time to develop specialized skills will make it far easier for you to acquire a job in the future. Any time you’re on a job site, ask questions. While you shouldn’t walk away from your own work to watch or help someone else, being available and willing to learn new skills is the mark of a great construction worker–and those skills can be of immense benefit to you later.

Warehouse Jobs Hiring

To Have a Detailed Posting or Ads for Requirement

Every warehouse and supply chain company is different from each other and demands for different personnel. Some companies may be technically advance and may not require the labour intensive employees, whereas some may have less IT capabilities and might need a skilled employee. Thus to avoid bad hire the tip is to mention each and every detail about the organisation in the job posting or advertisements duly.

To Look For Character More Than Degree

A degree from the qualified institute is important but more than that the deciding criterion for logistics job openings should be the character of the individual. It is better to observe the individual on the basis of how collectively with the co-members he can perform. It is better to look whether that individual can gel with the existing staff or not.

To Embolden the Referrals from Current Employees

The best way to save time and energy from the hiring process of warehouse vacancies is to encourage the referrals from the existing staff. This way, it will create less havoc to post ads and expenditure on the hiring process.

To Focus On Easy Application

If the company is having a poorly designed website for application invitation then prospective candidates may become uninterested. The application process should be easy and simple to complete. Many young candidates will lose their patience if the procedure is too long and strenuous.

Become a Court Interpreter

Bachelor’s degree

Most courts won’t consider candidates who don’t hold at least a bachelor’s degree from an accredited university or college. Graduates who major in translation studies and/or court interpreting would be considered the most qualified, but several other fields are appropriate as well, such as foreign language majors in Spanish or French, for example.

Certification

Obtaining certification from a recognized professional court interpreter program could give you an advantage over other applicants. This type of certification usually provides enrollees the opportunity to take coursework that is directly pertinent to their future careers, such as classes in penal code, court procedures, and simultaneous translation, for example.

On-the-job experience

It’s the age-old conundrum for college graduates: how do I gain the experience required to get hired? Many courts are looking for experienced court interpreters. If you’re fresh out of college, consider working for a translation company or pursuing volunteer work or an internship that would provide you with the experience that many courts look for in a qualified candidate.

Adapt a flexible attitude when applying for positions

It’s entirely possible that you may have to move or make some concessions with regard to your desired salary in order to break into this profession. When applying for your first job as a court interpreter, remember that getting your “foot in the door” is always somewhat of a challenge, and you may have to relocate or take a salary that is lower than you would like in order to get your first job.

BENEFITS OF MACHINE LEARNING

It is just another way of analyzing the data and extracting useful perceptions out of it that automatically builds the data analytical models.

It assists the organizations in getting a more effective and efficient analysis of massive sets of data in the absence of skilled professionals. An artificial mind works at a rapid pace as compared to a human mind; hence, it results in faster and accurate decisions.

The accurate and rapid decisions lead to grabbing the new market revenue opportunities and improving the customer satisfaction. It helps in fostering the process of identifying the threats present in the market.

The process of identifying the opportunities as well as threats gets simplified via machine learning. But all this can be achieved only when it is properly trained with the help of additional resources and time.

HOW CAN THE MACHINE LEARNING CAPABILITIES BE IMPROVED?

There are various methods available for machine learning such as supervised algorithms, semi-supervised algorithms, and unsupervised algorithms.

a) Supervised Algorithms apply what was learned along with the data and use well illustrated and labeled diagrams to analyze and predict the future.

b) Semi-Supervised Algorithms require labeled as well as unlabeled training which involves the use of the small amount of labeled data but a large amount of unlabeled data.

It is chosen when the acquired labeled data require the additional resources, but the unlabeled data does not require the additional resources or skills.

c) Unsupervised Algorithms are generally applied when the data acquired is unlabeled or unclassified. This system is used to uncover the hidden solutions from the unlabeled or unclassified data sets.

The machine learning has the ability to devour the massive sets of data timely and that too effectively. The recent customers’ activities and the interactions are utilized by the machine learning in reviewing and adjusting your messages.

It has the ability to pinpoint pertinent variables by building the data analysis models from numerous sources.

Choose Executive Search Firm

  • Efficient Time Investment- An executive recruiting company understands the wants and needs of clients. In any type of relationship, it takes time to know the other party and firms should avoid jumping directly into the recruitment process. The executive search firm you choose should be able to allot enough time to understand you and your requirements. An inefficient recruitment process can lead to frustrated candidates which in return can hamper or damage the brand.
  • Research – Time investment mentioned above should be committed to research as well so that the firm can get to know whether potential candidates are fit for the vacancy offered. Wasting time of candidates will have a negative impact on your brand and could burn future employment.
  • Communicate Clearly – When it comes to the professional field, few things are frustrating than trying to translate indistinct, arguable correspondence or chasing people to deliver their part of a project. Executive recruiting firms are supposed to ease the pressure and make life easier for the companies they work with. Communicating clearly and in a timely manner, an executive search firm should push processes forward rather than holding them back.
  • Build Relationship – Even if a candidate doesn’t get chosen for a particular position, still they should not have bitterness regarding it rather they should benefit the interview experience. In embryonic stages of the selection process, every party involved learns a great deal about prospective hires and the knowledge doesn’t expire after a position is filled. For future placement opportunities, they can keep the information in mind. If the candidates have a good learning experience while taking an interview with you, it will strengthen your brand name.
  • Commitment to Results – One advantage of working with recruitment firms is that placements are guaranteed. This guarantee acts as a safety net for the companies. If a placement doesn’t work out, the firm is compelled to repeat its efforts at no additional cost. With this approach, they feel the pressure to deliver results which proves to be beneficial for their clients.
