    64 Interview Answers You Should Know

    Q49. What was the toughest challenge you’ve ever faced? BEST ANSWER:This is an easy question if you’re prepared. Have a recent example ready that demonstrates either: 1. A quality most important to the job at hand; or 2. A quality that is always in demand, such as leadership, initiative, managerial skill, persuasiveness, courage, persistence, intelligence, etc. Q50. Have you consider starting your own business? BEST ANSWER: Again it’s best to: 1. Gauge this company’s corporate culture before answering and… 2. Be honest (which doesn’t mean you have to vividly share your fantasy of the franchise or bed-and-breakfast you someday plan to open). Q51. What are your goals? BEST ANSWER: Many executives in a position to hire you are strong believers in goal-setting. (It’s one of the reason they’ve achieved so much). They like to hire in kind. Q52. What do you for when you hire people? BEST ANSWER: Speak your own thoughts here, but for the best answer weave them around the three most important qualifications for any position. 1. Can the person do the work (qualifications)? 2. Will the person do the work (motivation)? 3. Will the person fit in (“our kind of team player”)? Q53. Sell me this stapler…(this pencil…this clock…or some other object on interviewer’s desk). BEST ANSWER: Of course, you already know the most important secret of all great salesmanship – “find out what people want, then show them how to get it.” Q54. “The Salary Question” – How much money do you want? TRAPS: May also be phrases as, “What salary are you worth?”…or, “How much are you making now?” This is your most important negotiation. Handle it wrong and you can blow the job offer or go to work at far less than you might have gotten. Q55. The Illegal Question BEST ANSWER: Under the ever-present threat of lawsuits, most interviewers are well aware of these taboos. Yet you may encounter, usually on a second or third interview, a senior executive who doesn’t interview much and forgets he can’t ask such questions. Q56. The “Secret” Illegal Question BEST ANSWER: Remember that just because the interviewer doesn’t ask an illegal question doesn’t mean he doesn’t have it. More than likely, he is going to come up with his own answer. So you might as well help him out. Q57. What was the toughest part of your last job? BEST ANSWER: State that there was nothing in your prior position that you found overly difficult, and let your answer go at that. If pressed to expand your answer, you could describe the aspects of the position you enjoyed more than others, making sure that you express maximum enjoyment for those tasks most important to the open position, and you enjoyed least those tasks that are unimportant to the position at hand. Q58. How do you define success…and how do you measure up to your own definition? BEST ANSWER: Give a well-accepted definition of success that leads right into your own stellar collection of achievements. Q59. “The Opinion Question” – What do you think about …Abortion…The President…The Death Penalty…(or any other controversial subject)? BEST ANSWER: In all of these instances, just remember the tale about student and the wise old rabbi. The scene is a seminary, where an overly serious student is pressing the rabbi to answer the ultimate questions of suffering, life and death. But no matter how hard he presses, the wise old rabbi will only answer each difficult question with a question of his own. Q60. If you won $10 million lottery, would you still work? BEST ANSWER: This type of question is aimed at getting at your bedrock attitude about work and how you feel about what you do. Your best answer will focus on your positive feelings. Q61. Looking back on your last position, have you done your best work? BEST ANSWER: To cover both possible paths this question can take, your answer should state that you always try to do your best, and the best of your career is right now. Like an athlete at the top of his game, you are just hitting your career stride thanks to several factors. Then, recap those factors, highlighting your strongest qualifications Q62. Why should I hire you from the outside when I could promote someone from within? BEST ANSWER: Help him see the qualifications that only you can offer. Q63. Tell me something negative you’ve heard about our company… BEST ANSWER: Just remember the rule – never be negative – and you’ll handle this one just fine. Q64. On a scale of one to ten, rate me as an interviewer. BEST ANSWER: Once again, never be negative. The interviewer will only resent criticism coming from you. This is the time to show your positivism. All the Best

    64 Interview Answers You Should Know

    Q33. How do you feel about working nights and weekends? BEST ANSWER: First, if you’re a confirmed workaholic, this question is a softball lob. Whack it out of the park on the first swing by saying this kind of schedule is just your style. Add that your family understands it. Indeed, they’re happy for you, as they know you get your greatest satisfaction from your work. Q34. Are you willing to relocate or travel? BEST ANSWER: First find out where you may have to relocate and how much travel may be involved. Q35. Do you have the stomach to fire people? Have you had experience firing many people? BEST ANSWER: Describe the rational and sensible management process you follow in both hiring and firing. Q36. Why have you had so many jobs? BEST ANSWER: First, before you even get to the interview stage, you should try to minimize your image as job hopper. If there are several entries on your resume of less than one year, consider eliminating the less important ones. Perhaps you can specify the time you spent at previous positions in rounded years not in months and years. Q37. What do you see as the proper role/mission of… …a good (job title you’re seeking); …a good manager; …an executive in serving the community; …a leading company in our industry; etc. BEST ANSWER: Think of the most essential ingredients of success for each category above – your job title, your role as manager, your firm’s role, etc. Identify at least three but no more than six qualities you feel are most important to success in each role. Then commit your response to memory. Here, again, the more information you’ve already drawn out about the greatest wants and needs of the interviewer, and the more homework you’ve done to identify the culture of the firm, the more on-target your answer will be. Q38. What would you say to your boss if he’s crazy about an idea, but you think it stinks? BEST ANSWER: Remember the rule stated earlier: In any conflict between values, always choose integrity. Q39. How could you have improved your career progress? BEST ANSWER: You’re generally quite happy with your career progress. Maybe, if you had known something earlier in life (impossible to know at the time, such as the booming growth in a branch in your industry…or the corporate downsizing that would phase out your last job), you might have moved in a certain direction sooner. Q40. What would you do if a fellow executive on your own corporate level wasn’t pulling his/her weight…and this was hurting your department? BEST ANSWER: Try to gauge the political style of the firm and be guided accordingly. In general, fall back on universal principles of effective human relations – which in the end, embody the way you would like to be treated in a similar circumstance. Q41. You’ve been with your firm a long time. Won’t it be hard switching to a new company? BEST ANSWER: To overcome this objection, you must point to the many ways you have grown and adapted to changing conditions at your present firm. It has not been a static situation. Highlight the different responsibilities you’ve held, the wide array of new situations you’ve faced and conquered. Q42. May I contact your present employer for a reference? BEST ANSWER: Express your concern that you’d like to keep your job search private, but that in time, it will be perfectly okay. Q43. Give me an example of your creativity (analytical skill…managing ability, etc.) BEST ANSWER: Remember from Question 2 that you should commit to memory a list of your greatest and most recent achievements, ever ready on the tip of your tongue. Q44. Where could you use some improvement? BEST ANSWER: Keep this answer, like all your answers, positive. A good way to answer this question is to identify a cutting-edge branch of your profession (one that’s not essential to your employer’s needs) as an area you’re very excited about and want to explore more fully over the next six months. Q45. What do you worry about? BEST ANSWER: Redefine the word ‘worry’ so that it does not reflect negatively on you. Q46. How many hours a week do you normally work? BEST ANSWER: If you are in fact a workaholic and you sense this company would like that: Say you are a confirmed workaholic, that you often work nights and weekends. Your family accepts this because it makes you fulfilled. Q47. What’s the most difficult part of being a (job title)? BEST ANSWER: First, redefine “difficult” to be “challenging” which is more positive. Then, identify an area everyone in your profession considers challenging and in which you excel. Describe the process you follow that enables you to get splendid results…and be specific about those results. Example: “I think every sales manager finds it challenging to motivate the troops in a recession. But that’s probably the strongest test of a top sales manager. I feel this is one area where I excel.” Q48. The “Hypothetical Problem” BEST ANSWER: Instead, describe the rational, methodical process you would follow in analyzing this problem, who you would consult with, generating possible solutions, choosing the best course of action, and monitoring the results.

    IMPORTANCE OF HAVING BREAKFAST

    very nice article
  4. 1. Staying in a comfortable job It's easy to get comfortable in a job you enjoy, or even seek out a position that aligns with your interests. For example, Osborn and Morris write in their book, a ski instructor who loves to ski or a bartender who loves to meet new people and be social. "All of these individuals are getting some subset of their needs met," they write. "But is it enough?" Osborn and Morris encourage you to use your learned skills to find interests outside of your comfort zone. "Building wealth is a contact sport. It requires movement, action, and impact. Be purposeful and build a network that takes you closer to your goals," they write. 2. Avoiding risk Fear is a universal feeling. Once you realize you're not alone in that feeling, "ask yourself, 'What is truly at risk?'" Osborn and Morris write. Remember, if it's a worthwhile endeavor, there will almost certainly be some sort of risk involved. "We're not going to sugarcoat this — building wealth involves taking risks," they write. "But it's overinflated compared to the risk of doing nothing. The biggest risk in life is not taking one." 3. Viewing wealth negatively We're all brought up around different attitudes about money, whether that's the idea that wealth is glamourous and unattainable, or that it's a sign of greed and corruption. Your ability to build wealth effectively hinges on these beliefs, Osborn and Morris said. "Celebrate your pursuit of wealth and look at it as a pathway to freedom. And, steer clear from those who think money is a dirty word," they write. 4. Giving up As with any challenge in life, you'll experience ups and downs in your pursuit of wealth. Those people who make it to the top are the ones who never quit. Osborn and Morris explain: "When you face a setback, you have a choice: You can jump ship by focusing on the sting of the loss or stay the course and reap the value of the lesson. "Just remember: You had courage before the loss, and now you have the power of more experience and information as you move forward." 5. Holding on to toxic friendships "How many people are best friends with their kindergarten buddies? Not many. Yet how many folks have a friend they won't cut loose, even though they are a negative influence?" Osborn and Morris ask these questions to emphasize that you have total control over who you surround yourself with. Ultimately, they say, don't get trapped in a "weak social circle." If you do find yourself there, be sensible enough to walk away. 6. Victimizing yourself Bad things happen every day and at times it may even feel like you're taking more hits than others. Did you lose money on your investment? Run your new business into the ground? That's going to be difficult to get through, but it's no excuse to victimize yourself, Osborn and Morris explain. "Victimhood leads to blame, apathy, and general malaise. It's hard to move forward with a positive vision when you are locked into an event from the past. Negativity tends to lead to inertia and despondence. Don't let a bad occurrence hold you back," they write. 7. Thinking you know it all Osborn and Morris quote Stephen Hawking to illustrate this point: "The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it's the illusion of knowledge." Thus, thinking you know all there is to know — the "expert syndrome," as they call it — hinders teachability and growth. In other words: We all, always, have something to learn.
  5. Investing, as with anything in life, benefits from an early start. The earlier you begin planning for retirement, the greater your potential return on investment. This holds true for both civilians and military members. By taking advantage of your youth, you can get a head start on saving for your future. However, if you’re not sure about the benefits of early investing, here are five reasons why it’s best to start sooner than later. 1. Time allows you to take risks Typically, when it comes to investing, ventures that are more volatile yield the highest return on investment. Investors, who have the time to recover if something were to go wrong, have the opportunity to make riskier moves. Those who begin to invest late in life are often inherently more cautious with how they invest their money. 2. Compound interest really makes a difference Essentially, compound interest is the interest earned on interest. By continuously reinvesting your earnings, you are exponentially increasing your return on investment. Savvy investors understand the benefits of investing early and taking advantage of the potential gains from compound interest. To help you understand how time and compound interest are related, here’s an example: Twenty-five year old Madison invests $2,000 annually over 10 years in her company’s 401(k), with an average growth of 10 percent. When she retires, at the age of 65, her investment would have grown to $556,197. On the other hand consider Cooper, age 34, who invests $2,000 annually over 30 years into his 401(k). At age 65, Cooper who has invested three times as much as Madison, will have $328,988 in his retirement account. In this example, Madison, who began investing early and gave her money time to earn compound interest has $225,000 more than Cooper to spend during her retirement. 3. Your spending habits will improve Investing early allows you to develop disciplined spending habits by focusing on your budget and cutting expenses when needed. The goal here is to earn money by saving money. This is impossible with poor spending habits and a life full of impulse buying. Through early investment, the lessons learned will pay off in the long run, especially, when you have even more capital to work with and restraint is needed. 4. Be a step ahead of everyone else The early bird gets the worm is an idiom worth adhering to. The earlier you begin investing, the better your personal financial situation will be down the line. Compared to your counterparts, who may have chosen to invest later in life, over time you will be able to afford things that others can’t. Additionally, at some point your finances may become unstable, but by investing early you’ll be prepared to face such hardships. 5. Your quality of life will improve Military members who invest in retirement plans such as a Thrift Savings Plan, 401(k) or Roth IRA are taking steps toward an improved quality of life. Early investment will reduce the risk that you’ll be forced to make reckless choices to secure a stable retirement.
  6. A very simple but confusing puzzle. A lady buys goods worth rs.200 from a shop. (shopkeeper selling the goods with zero profit). The lady gives him 1000 rs note. The shopkeeper gets the change from the next shop and keeps 200 for himself and returns rs.800 to d lady. Later the shopkeeper of the next shop comes with the 1000 Rs note saying "duplicate" and takes his money back. "How much LOSS did the shopkeeper face ?" A. 200 B. 800 C. 1200 D. 1800 E. 2000 F. 1600 G. 1000 Simple yet confusing n challenging.⁠⁠⁠⁠

    Car Mania

    Lamborghini Cars Lamborghini is an Italian car manufacturer that was founded by Ferruccio Lamborghini in 1963 with the objective of competing with Ferrari. Lamborghini gained international acclaim in the 60’s for the Muira and after hard times starting from the mid 1970’s to filing for bankruptcy and three changes in ownership, Lamborghini came under Chrysler 1987. The company was eventually sold to Audi in 1998 and in the start of this century it eventually started to witness success under Volkswagen. 2016 Lamborghini Urus It’s almost confirmed thatLamborghini would bring their Urus SUV to India. Stated for an international launch in 2016, the Urus was first shown at the Beijing Motor Show earlier this year and the model is the spiritual successor to the LM002 4x4 from 1986. As is the case with most Lamborghini names, the name Urus comes from a very large and powerful wild bull that was common in central Asia and Europe in the middle-ages. Lamborghini is aware of the expectations from the SUV and the manufacturer promises that the Urus will set a new performance benchmark for SUVs. "The Urus is the most extreme interpretation of the SUV idea," said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. The SUV will be priced at around 1.5crore and like the Aventador, the Urus uses carbon fibre for its chassis and body. DESIGN AND INTERIORS In terms of styling the Urus has a very angular design which echoes the canned Estoque saloon concept.Lamborghini bosses say it will be the world’s fastest-accelerating and best-handling SUV. The SUV is expected to be 4.99 meters long, 1.66 metres high and the design is stunning with a typical Lamborghini nose mounted high and razor sharp lines similar to those on the Aventador. The wheel arches are typical of Lambo and the massive haunches make this car an eyeball magnet. The 24-inch wheels are forged from matte-finish aluminium and are stunning. The Urus will use innovative and adaptive aerodynamics with variable ride height and a height-adjustable front spoiler and the aero balance of the Lamborghini Urus can even be adjusted to suit the prevailing driving conditions. ENGINE AND RIDE No detailed technical information is yet known but the Urus could use a modified version of the VW Group’s new 4-litre twin-turbo V8 or a 6-litre W12. Lamborghini is targeting a 100kmph time of around four seconds with a top speed of around 300kmph. The chassis could be shared with the Audi’s variable large car four-wheel-drive MLB platform and is likely to make heavy use of torque vectoring. The SUV will have height adjustable suspension that lowers at high speed. Lamborghini’s head of development, Maurizio Reggiani has said that the platform of the Urus is being developed within the VW group to underpin the next generation of Porsche Cayenne, Audi Q7 and Bentley’s SUV. Regarding the mechanicals, Reggiani said, ‘We looked at having the gearbox in the rear for ideal weight distribution but now I think we will end up with a conventional drivetrain with engine, gearbox, centre differential and real differential, as it is lighter and we can share components across the group.’ Revealing more details on the SUV Reggiani further added, ‘We will use forged composite for the body panels, the structure and for many of the aesthetic parts in this car. No one else in the group will have this material and it saves us a lot of weight, especially in the interior because we don’t have to cover it in leather, as it looks really cool anyway!’ said Reggiani.
