How did you feel while you interviewed a classmate? Do you believe that seeing an interview from the employer’s perspective makes you more prepared or not? Please explain. While I felt nervous, I also felt more confident because it was a classmate that I had known because they’ve been in the class the whole year.
How did you feel while you were interviewed by a classmate? Did you feel anxious, nervous, scared, prepared, overwhelmed, confident, etc.? Please explain why you felt that way. While nervous because I hadn’t prepared for the questions at all, I still felt more confident than I would with an actual interview.
How do you feel about your responses? Do you think your responses to the questions were adequate or do you feel you could have done better? What question did you find easy? What question did you find difficult to answer? The questions that I found difficult to answer were the ones asking about motivation, I could’ve responded better with them but I believe I responded well enough.
What advice would you give someone who is participating in a mock interview or a real interview? What advice would you give yourself; in other words, how do you think you could improve for your real interview? Stay confident, say stalling words less, and be more prepared for the questions to come.
Yes, I know these mock interviews weren’t real, so imagine how you would perform in the interview if it was real. What have you learned you need to do to be better prepared? How should you dress for an interview? How should you behave before, during, and after an interview? What should you bring with you to an interview? One should dress appropriately, get a resume together, behave confidently yet humbly.
Evaluate the activity. Be honest. What do you think was good about this class activity? How do you think we could improve this activity for next time, next year? Do you believe this is a skill you do need or do not need in real life? Please explain. It was a decent activity, but all the talking had made it hard to hear my interviewer/ee. This activity could provide life skills for those that haven’t had any job experiences though.
Take one of the 20 interview questions below and write a response that would be GOOD and one that would be BAD, then explain the difference with reasoning. It’s always good to practice job interview questions so that you become more and more comfortable. Question: When required, would you be willing to work overtime? Bad response: Yes. Good Response: Yes, I’d be willing to work overtime to better advance my position in the company and the company itself. The bad response is bad because they hadn’t elaborated at all for the response, while the good response is such because they had elaborated on their answer.
