08 common Interview question and answers - Job Interview Skills 1. "Tell me a little about yourself." You should take this opportunity to show your communication skills by speaking clearly and concisely in an organized manner. Because there is no right or wrong answer for this question, it is important to appear friendly. 2. "What are your strengths?" This is a popular interview question. They want to know what you think of yourself. Although this is a general question, there is a wrong and right answer. The wrong answer is a generic answer saying you are organized and friendly. Although it will not hurt you during the interview, it will certainly not help you either. Answer this question based on the type of job you are applying for. 3. "What are your weaknesses?" For this answer, you should display a weakness that can be seen as a strength. There are many types of answers that will work. Some answers will be good answers for certain jobs, while the same answer will be a bad answer for a different job. Select an answer that will work for the position you are applying for. 4. "Where do you see yourself in five years?" This question primarily depends on where you are in your career. A person with 5 years of experience will have different goals than a person with no work experience.This question is asked to see how serious a candidate is about his or her career. Some people might not know their goals, and some people might have goals of becoming rich and retiring early. Those are incorrect answers for this question. The type of answer you want to give is an ambitious answer that shows you really love your career. A good interviewer will read between the lines and find out if a person is going to be a hard worker or just a mediocre one. Being descriptive and shooting for a big goal is something interviewers want to hear. 5. "What do you know about our company?" A typical job interview question, asked to find out how much company research you have conducted, is "What do you know about this company?" Prepare in advance, and in a word, research, so you can provide relevant and current information about your prospective employer to the interviewer. 6. "Are you good at dealing with change?" Dealing with change is common in the work place. A simple yes will not be sufficient to impress the interviewer. This is another type of question where everyone will have similar answers. Of course everyone is going to claim being excellent dealing with change. You got to communicate that you are really good at dealing with change. 7. "Do you work well under pressure?" In most cases, the best answer to this question is answering yes. Working well under pressure is a good trait to have. However, I think if you answer that you work the same with pressure and without pressure, the interviewer will be more impressed. However, you will need to explain in words why this is better. 8. "How do you make important decisions?" There are many ways to answer this question, and if you have a reasonable method of making decisions, it will probably be sufficient. One answer I thought of included not being afraid of asking your manager. You can follow up by saying even the best needs mentoring, and you always want to improve. So basically, this could work as an answer, but depending on the job, you might have a better shot with an answer like my example.

Learn about Different Types of Employee Performance Evaluations How to Conduct an Employee Performance Review or Appraisal http://turnkeydoc.com/human-resources/performance-management/performance-reviews/ An employee performance appraisal, performance evaluation or performance review as it is sometimes called, is a review by a manager where the employee's work performance is evaluated and strengths and weaknesses are identified, so that the employee knows where improvement is needed. Employee performance Reviews, Appraisals and Evaluations are vital for communication. Over the years there have been some new types of performance reviews, performance evaluation, or performance appraisals that are being met with success in today's business world. These require that employee performance evaluations, performance reviews or performance appraisals be done not only for raises, promotions, or bonuses, but for an employee's growth and development. These include: Management by Objectives Review: This method, often called MBO, measures the employee's accomplishments against a clearly established set of objectives. If managers and employees begin the year by working together to list these objectives, the end-of-year performance appraisal, performance review, or performance evaluation can simply compare each goal with its final outcome. This method is simple, clear, and empowers employees in the goal setting process but it disregards non-goal-related success metrics. Ratings Scale is probably the most common review type. Using this method, a supervisor rates an employee on a numerical scale for a defined set of behaviors, traits, competencies, or completed projects. This method gains points for simplicity and functionality, but it only works well if both managers and employees share the same understanding of each point on the scale. The 360 Degree Feedback Review is a new kind of employee performance review, performance appraisal, or performance evaluation. It incorporates data from peers, supervisors and even outside parties like customers and suppliers. This broad feedback can provide a multi-dimensional picture of performance that can cancel the influence of bias. The goal is to paint an accurate picture of employee's strengths and weaknesses. Gathering feedback from multiple sources is a great way to ensure employees are rated fairly and accurately No matter which type of employee performance evaluation, performance review or performance appraisal is used, remember the goal is to foster communication between managers and employees. To make your employee performance reviews, performance appraisal, or performance evaluation as productive as possible, try the following steps • Be prepared • Lead with the positive • Don't be confrontational • Keep it Simple • Be consistent • Make it a two-way conversation • Address what's important to the employee • Discuss work/life balance • Be a good listener • Give Feedback Regularly To download the review templates mentioned in this video as well as a guide on how to conduct the actual employee performance review, performance evaluation or performance appraisal, visit us at www.turnkeydoc.com Subscribe to our youtube channel to sample our "how to" video library or visit us at www.turnkeydoc.com to download your free gift! http://youtu.be/KcGhX7Htk9U Google Plus: https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/107057463999675049074/107057463999675049074/about Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Turn-Key-Doc/298240720333688 Twitter: https://twitter.com/turnkeydoc/ Youtube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8LlHO8tJf-w-BmhdJobdCw Employee Performance Review Employee Performance Appraisal Employee Performance Evaluation Performance Review Performance Appraisal Performance Evaluation

How to use O*Net Interest Profiler, a FREE career test & career research tips. Results are “Holland Codes” used in career counseling. For more information, click here to read our blog post: http://crossroadsindy.com/job-search-and-career-search-articles/how-to-take-a-free-career-test-with-holland-codes What is O*Net? It’s like Wikipedia—for careers! O*Net (https://www.onetonline.org/) is the Occupational Information Network, a free online database of occupation definitions by the United States Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration (USDOL/ETA) and other federal agencies including the Bureau of Labor and Statistics. Occupation descriptions for hundreds of different positions include: salary range, education level & common requirements, skills, duties, career outlook (forecasted growth rate) of position. What are Holland Codes? Results from this test are given in “Holland Codes”, named for their creator, American psychologist John L. Holland. Holland Codes have continued to grow in popularity since their introduction in the late 1950s and are commonly used by career advisors. In O*Net, Holland Codes are called Interest Codes, and groups of jobs that are sorted by similar interest codes are called Interest Clusters. Other sources refer to Holland Codes as Job Categories and/or Work Personality Environments. Holland codes are most useful for: career transition and career planning, which is especially useful for students. When a student is focused on a career path, an education plan can be made to increase motivation and save time and money. (More information for students can be found here: http://careerprepacademy.com) Holland Codes definitions: R=Realistic (Doers) Hands-on; practical rather than theoretical. Prefers to work with THINGS rather than ideas or people. I=Investigative (Thinkers) Intellectual, analytical, logical. Prefers working with DATA. Solves problems, performs experiments, and conducts research. A=Artistic (Creators) Creative, intuitive, non-conforming, innovative. Prefers unstructured environment/lack of rules and CREATIVITY/IDEAS. S=Social (Helpers) Service-oriented, teaching, helping, coordination, and cooperation. Prefers working with PEOPLE. E=Enterprising (Persuaders) Dominant, persuasive, and motivational. Prefers public speaking/leadership and ADVENTURE/RISK/STATUS. C=Conventional (Organizers) Efficient, organized, and detail-oriented. Prefers precision and accuracy in a work environment with STRUCTURE/RULES. Although you will most likely have one dominant interest, the combination of your top 3 highest interests/scores will be even more useful. The best use of what your results mean for you comes from your personalized results from the assessment. How to take the assessment: (1:40) Go to: http://www.mynextmove.org/explore/ip For best results, DON’T think about the level of education or training required, or how much money you could earn doing the job duties described in each question. Just respond according to how much you would you like or dislike doing the work. Your top 3 interest codes will be marked in bold. DO NOT FORGET TO SAVE YOUR RESULTS! How to return with your results: (3:28) You can return to the O*Net Interest Profiler (using the link above) and click the button marked “Enter scores”. In the results of your assessment, careers are sorted in descending order by best fit according to your interests. Results are further refined by “Job zones”. Descriptions of Job zones: Job zone 1: Little or no preparation needed. High school education is not always required (Most “first jobs” are this level). Average positions include: retail/Food service, manual labor, some construction positions. Job zone 2: Some preparation needed. High School/GED usually required (Previous work experience). Example: Entry-level office work. Job zone 3: Medium preparation needed. Education/experience usually required: Vocational on-the-job training, Associate’s degree, Bachelor’s degree. Examples of positions: insurance sales, legal secretaries, supervisory positions. Job zone 4: High preparation needed. Education/experience usually required: Bachelor’s degree (may require additional specialized training). Examples of positions: accountants, sales managers, database administrators, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators. Job zone 5: Extensive preparation needed. Most positions require Graduate degree (Master's degree, Ph.D., M.D., or J.D.). Examples include Doctors and Lawyers. My Next Move vs. O*Net: Job summaries on My Next Move are much shorter than descriptions on O*Net. An average posting on My Next Move would print on one page, compared to O*Net’s average of 7 pages. The additional detail is worth the longer report—as seen in a comparison of the education detail on My Next Move vs. O*Net.

This video will provide you with a brief overview of scenario planning. It will also share some of the resources that we, the United States Department of Transportation (DOT), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), offer to agencies interested in conducting scenario planning. Scenario planning is a technique that helps assess and prepare for possible future conditions. Each scenario tells a different, plausible story about the future. Using input from the public and other stakeholders, agencies can create scenarios that incorporate a wide variety of factors, such as housing, employment, socioeconomic trends, environmental features, vehicle miles traveled, and others. The specific factors incorporated in scenarios will depend on what the agency hopes to accomplish in its scenario planning effort. By creating several different scenarios, agencies can better assess what might occur in the future for a given region or area. As a result, agencies are able to make more informed decisions about how to plan for the future. More information about our workshops, Webinars, and other scenario planning resources are available on FHWA's Scenario Planning Web site at: www.fhwa.dot.gov/planning/scenplan/index.htm [CLOSED CAPTIONED]

William Overholt argues that as China reaches a threshold where success has eliminated the conditions that enabled miraculous growth, Xi Jinping is pursuing the riskiest political strategy of any important national leader. About China’s Crisis of Success In 1993 William Overholt published The Rise of China: How Economic Reform is Creating a New Superpower, a controversial forecast of success based on the its emulation of the earlier Asian miracles; that forecast was initially ridiculed, then later acclaimed as prescient. In 2012 he called for a reassessment of China’s prospects based on divergence from the paths of earlier successes. His new book, China’s Crisis of Success, argues that China is like an entrepreneur whose business success reaches a threshold where success can only continue if it transforms itself (e.g., with professional accounting, professional HR, and much else). Above all, success has created an exponential rise in the complexity of economic and political issues. China’s leadership has responded with a brilliant plan of economic transformation, but has political problems with implementation of key reforms, and has no comparable model of political transformation. By applying comparisons with other emerging countries, China’s Crisis of Success reveals China’s core strengths and weaknesses, in the process potentially revolutionizing much of our understanding of China. On one hand, other than human rights China has served the needs of its people much better than most Western theories acknowledge. For instance, contrary to widely accepted political analyses, Chinese communism is not uniquely susceptible to corruption and environmental degradation; developing democracies like India are much worse. Moreover, contrary to the most highly regarded economic theorists, China is far more economically inclusive than its democratic counterparts at similar levels of development; for instance, homeownership is 20 percentage points higher than the U.S. Moreover, China’s administrative system, denigrated by respected Western analysts as crippled by factionalism and incapable of long-range planning, actually demonstrates extraordinary strengths. Comparative analysis also reveals China’s weaknesses. There is no widely applicable Beijing Model; China’s path can only be emulated countries experiencing certain extreme conditions and even then only for a limited time. Xi Jinping’s extraordinary ability to eliminate rivals does not necessarily convey comparable ability to implement reform policies. Implementation of those policies at a time of financial stringency requires paying a heavy price in economic growth and political support and so far the leadership has been unwilling to pay much of that price. Lack of this leaves China in a crisis of success: a big success, a proportionately big crisis, and resulting uncertainty as to whether the future will bring continued political and economic success, stagnation, or collapse of the model. About William Overholt Dr. William H. Overholt is a member of the USC U.S.-China Institute’s board of scholars. He holds a research position at Harvard's Kennedy School and is Principal of AsiaStat LLC, a consulting firm. Previously he held the Asia Policy Distinguished Research Chair at RAND's California headquarters and was Director of RAND's Center for Asia Pacific Policy. During 21 previous years in investment banking, he served as Head of Strategy and Economics at Nomura's regional headquarters in Hong Kong from 1998 to 2001, and as Managing Director and Head of Research at Bank Boston's regional headquarters in Singapore. At Bankers Trust, he ran a country risk team in New York from 1980 to 1984, then was regional strategist and Asia research head based in Hong Kong from 1985 to 1998. At Hudson Institute 1971 to 1979, Dr. Overholt directed planning studies for the U.S. Department of Defense, Department of State, National Security Council, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and Council on International Economic Policy. As Director of Hudson Research Services, he did strategic planning for corporations. Dr. Overholt is the author of seven books, including Asia, America and the Transformation of Geopolitics (Cambridge University Press and RAND, 2007) The others are: The Rise of China (W.W.

This webinar is a great way for program and records management staff to learn how to properly manage paper and electronic records using a file plan without ever leaving the office! This seminar provides a practical guide on how to create file plans. A file plan specifies how records are organized once they have been created or received, provides a finding and action guide to the records, and documents the procedures for destruction or transfer of the records. This course covers the basics of how to create a file plan and answers questions such as: • What is a file plan? • What records do I need in my file plan? • How do I conduct a records inventory? • How do I determine how long to keep records? • How do I implement a file plan? Accessibility: This video is fully captioned for audio accessibility. For visual accessibility, a detailed text description of the video's visual presentation suitable for screen readers is available here: www.archives.gov/records-mgmt/transcripts/creating-and-using-file-plans.pdf

CS547: Human-Computer Interaction Seminar The Science of Learning, Data, and Transformation in Higher Education Speaker: Candace Thille, Stanford University The goal of the science of learning is to understand, predict and explain human learning. A great deal of learning research has resulted in principles of learning that could be used to enhance education; however, the results of that research often have not translated into successful changes in teaching practice, educational technology design, or student learning. In this talk, I will describe a model for using educational technology to shift the relationship between learning research and teaching practice in service of simultaneously improving student learning and contributing to our fundamental understanding of human learning. I will also describe a new Open Analytics Research System (OARS) that we are developing at Stanford. The OARS collects fine-grained student learning data and models that data to make predictions about the learner. We will have an audience participation part of the session to leverage the HCI design expertise in the room to address the question of how to represent the data we have to help faculty using OARS make informed choices for the classroom. About the Speaker: Candace Thille is the founding director of the Open Learning Initiative (OLI) at Carnegie Mellon University and at Stanford University. She is a senior research fellow in the Office of the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning and an assistant professor in the Graduate School of Education at Stanford University. Her focus is in applying the results from research in the science of learning to the design and evaluation of open web-based learning environments and in using those environments to conduct research in human learning. Dr. Thille serves on the board of directors of the Association of American Colleges and Universities; as a fellow of the International Society for Design and Development in Education; on the Assessment 2020 Task Force of the American Board of Internal Medicine; on the advisory council for the Association of American Universities STEM initiative; and on the advisory council for the National Science Foundation Directorate for Education and Human Resources. She served on the working group of the President¹s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) that produced theEngage to Excel report. She served on the U.S. Department of Education working groups, co-authoring the 2010 and 2015National Education Technology Plans. She was recently named one of The Sixteen Most Innovative People in Higher Education by the Washington Monthly.
