Video Interview

This is a video with 10 interview questions. Take a moment and answer each question and pause in between to give yourself time to think about the question. Give no more that 45 seconds to come up with an answer. Time yourself to see how long you talked. This will help you prepare for the unexpected questions and get use to answering them. This is most helpful with phone screens. 


What you will need: Computer, Timer, voice recorder (optional)

Instructions: Play the video and after each question push pause. Take 45 seconds or less to come up with an answer. Say the answer out loud (if possible record it as you are answering). At the end go back and reflect on the interview. After about 15 mins play the video for a second time, this time write down your answers and go over them to see where you could improve. Be mindful of the time.


The Who Am I Activity

In this activity write down on a blank piece of paper all the skills you believe you have and number them in a list. On a clean sheet write down what you like to do meaning hobbies, environments, and places. On that same paper write your 5 year career goal . It's your goal so it could be whatever you want it to be.


Take a moment and notice the similarities in your two lists. Pick out those common traits and create a new list. 


Now, that you have your new list you should look at your career goals to see if they align. If not you have to take a deeper look into why they are different and maybe you are pursing something which is not feasible or you truly don't want to do. When you have your traits and they align; start writing why you are good at the skills you selected? 


Now, you have the beginning of your career search. Start looking for career information that matches the key words in your new career alignment goals.
