How to prepare for the most important interview question

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via Google PlusShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Job interviewing is a skill, and most of us get better at it the more we practice answering questions. That said, even those with experience can sometimes miss the opportunity to answer the most important question of an interview: “What questions do you have for us?”Whether it’s lack of preparation or a desire to finish the interview quickly, many people answer this with “no, I don’t have any questions.” However, asking some thoughtful questions demonstrates your interest in the position, your enthusiasm, your diligence and the fact that you were well-prepared for the interview. Here are some tips to help you prepare a few good questions before the interview.Ask about the positionTo demonstrate your careful consideration of the job, ask direct questions about the position based on what you’ve been asked during the interview.What do the day-to-day responsibilities for this position look like?What does success look like in this position? How is it measured and evaluated?What type of training is needed for this position? And what is the onboarding process like?What do you see as the most challenging aspect of this job?Is there anything on my resume or in my experience that makes you question whether I would be a good fit for this role?Ask about the companyTo demonstrate that you value company culture and have done your homework before the interview, ask some questions about the company. Also, if the company has been in the news or has had a noteworthy change, you can highlight that through a question.What would you say are the top values of the company?What type of people tend to thrive in this company?I know the company was acquired by __________ last year. What has that transition been like?Ask about the interviewerAny time you can get the interviewer to talk about themselves or tell personal stories, the stronger the interview will be. Demonstrate that you value the interviewer and their opinion by asking about their work.What do you like best about working for the company?What advice would you have for a new person in this position?If you were in my shoes, what else would be good to know about this company?Ask about the processThis is not the time to ask about specific things like salary, start date, vacation or any similar details. That will happen in the negotiation stage. However, this is the time to ask about the next steps in the hiring process. You can also use the question to reiterate your interest in the position.After speaking with you, I am very interested in this position. Can you tell me what the next steps are in this process?Remember, interviewing goes both ways. The interviewer is assessing whether or not you’ll be a good fit, and you should be making the same determination. Take advantage of the point in the interview where you can control the conversation and ask questions. Use this window to make a good last impression and learn what you need to know to make the right decision for you.For more tips, meet with a career development advisor. We’re here to help you practice your interviewing skills and give you advice on the process. Make an appointment through your Handshake account.Tags:InterviewingJob Searchlast_img read more


China strengthens Nigeria ties with $330M loan

first_img India to shun China vendors in 5G trials Huawei founder urges shift to software AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to MoreAddThisMore 03 SEP 2018 Previous ArticleVerizon president Dunne tipped as BT CEO contenderNext ArticleTCL goes budget on new BlackBerry Key device Kavit Majithia The Nigerian telecoms industry is set to receive a cash injection worth $328 million from China, as the Asian powerhouse looks to help with the development of infrastructure in the African country.Reuters reported that Exim, a Chinese institutional bank which is chartered to implement state policies, will loan Nigeria the cash as the two countries strengthen diplomatic ties.The agreement was part of “the current [Nigerian] administration’s commitment to incorporating the development of information and communications technology into national strategic planning”, according to a statement seen by Reuters.Indeed, the agreement is one of many Chinese loan deals with Nigeria since President Muhammadu Buhari was elected in 2015.For Nigeria, the cash boost will help with the government’s aims of improving technology infrastructure to boost growth and create jobs. Poor infrastructure is considered as a major challenge for companies operating in Nigeria, with the country relying mainly on oil sales for its economy.And for China, strengthening ties in emerging markets, such as those in Africa, could be vital for the country’s companies’ future growth amid tensions with several other nations.Huawei has been banned from supplying telecoms equipment in the US due to national security concerns, while Huawei and ZTE were also recently barred from bidding for 5G infrastructure contracts in Australia. Last week, Japan was reportedly also considering restrictions on the vendors, while Huawei is also facing security scrutiny in the UK.

Could it be?! Still ‘trending,’ Spieth back in mix

first_imgIs Jordan Spieth back?! How many times in the past few years have we heard that one? Yet, Spieth did something Friday that he’d only done 19 times before and not since 2019. Spieth hit 10 of 14 fairways and 16 greens, which according to Sean Martin of, is only the 20th time on Tour that Spieth has managed double-digit fairways and at least 16 greens in a single round. Spieth’s second straight 4-under 67 around TPC Scottsdale also has the three-time major winner and former world No. 1 (current No. 92) in the mix at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. “It felt like a 6- or 7-under day, and this is one of the first times I’ve almost been disappointed shooting 4 under in a round in long time, and that’s a good sign,” said Spieth, who a day earlier found just two fairways and 11 greens but “putted out of my mind.” “Yesterday it was one of those, like, all right, I shot 4 [under] but I got away with murder.” So, is Spieth back? Fielding much of the same questions he’s fielded since his last win (2017 Open Championship), Spieth reckoned his confidence was “probably higher than it’s been in a long time.” That being said, Spieth conceded that he’s still not where he wants to be. He is “certainly” not 100-percent confident. He doesn’t feel like he has his “A-game.” “But…,” Spieth added, “I feel like it’s trending that direction.” Spieth prioritizing process over results Trending. Spieth fans have been hearing that word on repeat for a while now. A couple of years back at Pebble Beach, Spieth said something similar: “I feel like my game’s trending the right direction and sometimes that means results are coming soon, sometimes it means they’re coming later, but they’re coming.” There have been a few teases in recent years, albeit no true close calls. Among his nine top-10s since the start of the 2017-18 Tour season, Spieth has three third-place finishes. However, his T-3 at the 2018 Houston Open came after a closing 66 left him three out of a playoff. A week later he placed third at the Masters, but only after a final-round 64 got him to within two of winner Patrick Reed. His most recent T-3, at the 2019 PGA, landed him six behind champion Brooks Koepka and four shy of runner-up Dustin Johnson. Even Spieth’s T-3 at the 2017 Hero World Challenge had him six short of winner Rickie Fowler. There have also been several starts like this week’s in Phoenix. Since the beginning of 2017-18, Spieth ranks 20th on Tour in combined first- and second-round scoring average but is 148th in weekend scoring, that according to Justin Ray of 15th Club. Remember when Spieth shared the lead through 54 holes of the 2018 Open? He shot 76 and tied for ninth. Or when he was T-2 with one round to play in each of the past two years at Colonial? He tied for eighth after a closing 72 in 2019 and shared 10th after a final-round 71 last year. Or when he was T-4 to begin Sunday at the 2019 Genesis? He shot, gulp, 81 and ended up T-51. Waste Management Phoenix Open: Full-field scores | Full coverage Which brings us back to Friday: Will this week finally be the week? Amidst a flurry of all too familiar questions, Spieth did get one fairly new one Friday: You’re a really popular player and there are a lot of people who are cheering for you to come back. Do you feel that, and does it make it easier or harder? Spieth, clearly not aware of Golf Twitter’s Spieth fandom, had this to say, provided in full: “I think I don’t necessarily feel it. I think I’ve kind of – I’m as hard on myself as anybody is on me and I’m as confident in myself as anybody is in me at different stages. It’s really just – I love the game. I want to play with freedom. I want to win golf tournaments and I want to get myself back. I’ve put in the hours. It’s just a matter of kind of working really smart, working on the right things, and then again, trusting it and just being okay with that patience of not having to see results right away. It’s a new thing for me. “I went through 10 years plus of every single year I actually got better at golf and had better results, too, and then at some point that can’t continue to happen and then go through adversity, and for me that’s taken longer to overcome than I certainly want it to, but I feel confident in my road ahead for sure.”last_img read more

So the announcement by the Minister for Transport, Paschal Donohoe, that Donegal roads are going to receive €7M under a severe weather allocation fund will no doubt be welcomed by local road users.“This winter’s storms have resulted in massive damage to local and secondary roads, as well as bridges, across County Donegal. The repair works will improve accessibility for local residents, farmers and businesses and will make life easier for everyone.“The total fund available is worth €106 million nationally and €85 million is being made available immediately to Local Authorities to start the work. €8 million is also being allocated for national roads and a further €8 million is being set aside for repairs to rail infrastructure. The remaining funding will be allocated this summer depending on where the need arises.“Minister Donohoe is confident that the funding allocations will be sufficient to repair all of the damage caused to local and regional roads during the floods and storms and, crucially, will also allow for significant preventative works to be carried out to protect against further damage in the future.“It is thanks to our recovering economy that we can make these kinds of investments in our road network. It is good for tourism, increases efficiencies for businesses and benefits the local people in Donegal who use the roads on a daily basis.“Fine Gael has a long term economic plan designed to keep the recovery going which will ensure we can continue to make these kinds of investments. The plan has three steps: more and better jobs, making work pay more than welfare, and investment in better public services, which will only be possible as a result of the increased revenue generated by creating more jobs. This plan will ensure that more people feel the benefits of a recovering economy in their own lives.”center_img Facebook Andrew McGinley says his children are getting him through life WhatsApp Previous articleAn Taisce must liaise more with Donegal County Council – KennedyNext articleArts Council Director says new agreement will improve arts administration in Donegal admin By admin – February 19, 2016 Twitter Lárionad Acmhainní Nádúrtha CTR to take part in new research project ***************** Gardai investigate deaths of two horses on the N56 WhatsApp Donegal retains 14 Blue Flags, Lisfannon is not restoredlast_img read more

Athena and Brockport battle to scoreless draw

first_img Yakup Simsek looks to cut the ball back to the middle as Brockport’s Carson Daly closes down space. Brockport and Greece Athena played to a scoreless draw.By PAUL GOTHAMThe scoreboard read zero. But as far as mid-season tests go, Tuesday’s Monroe County Division III matchup at Greece Athena had everything.Brockport (5-0-1) and Greece Athena (4-1-1), two teams with one loss between them, played a match worthy of their records.“Always great games when we play Brockport,” Athena coach Mike Butler said. “They always just play really, really hard. That’s definitely one of his better teams and two pretty equal squads going at it.”Chances existed for both squads. Athena goalkeeper Mike Monti turned away a two-on-one counterattack when he smothered a Zach Wharram attempt early in the second half. Brockport’s Peyton Young matched his counter part with a leaping save in overtime on an Antonio Monti blast from inside the penalty area.“They created a lot of opportunities,” Brockport coach Chris Zorn of the Trojans. “They are a very technical team. We created a lot of opportunities, a lot of back and forth. It was a fun game to watch.“It’s always a tough game over here. For the last 15 years it’s been tough game and if you can come out with a tie, I guess you can be happy with it. A win is always better, but we’ll take the tie today.”It looked like the Blue Devils won the match with a golden goal when Wharram sliced a corner kick from the right flag into the opposite side netting. Interference on the goalie nullified the tally. It was the second Brockport goal taken away. There was also a first-half header from Athena’s CJ Takatch that appeared it may have crossed the goal line. But no goal was awarded.“We had a couple goals taken back and that bites you a little bit and eats at you,” Zorn stated.Athena took the play to Brockport throughout the latter stages of the second half. Young showed his mettle between the pipes during a two-minute sequence when the Trojans tried to convert a series of four corner kicks.For both squads it was their third shutout in four games.“I don’t keep track of that,” Zorn said of the shutouts. “We go game to game. We’ll look at that at the end of the year.”Butler, though, pointed to the play of Brockport’s defense.“They did a great job. They didn’t give us anything easy. All of our shots were really from the 18 or around there. It wasn’t like we had the chance to walk one into the net and could make an easy play.“We put about eight over the top of the cross bar and then we put another eight right in the goalie’s hands. We need to do a little  better with that, but on the positive side we had those shots. We were around it. I don’t know how many shots we had, but it seemed like a lot.”Brockport will look to continue its unbeaten ways when it hosts Canandaigua on Thursday.“I’m not looking to go undefeated or anything like that because then you lose your first game in sectionals and it means nothing,” Zorn said. “It happens to teams. I’d rather take a few lumps here or there throughout the season, make ourselves stronger in the end and get through sectionals.”Athena welcomes Pittsford Sutherland also on Thursday.“There is no rest for the weary,” Butler quipped. “Normally, I think we’ll finish better than we did. The other pieces are playing pretty well.”The same two teams meet again on October sixth at Brockport.  Antonio Monti, Greece Athena, Mike Monti, Zach Wharram By Paul Gotham on September 12, 2017No Comment Athena and Brockport battle to scoreless draw Follow on Facebook Print This Post Athena and Brockport battle to scoreless draw added by Paul Gotham on September 12, 2017View all posts by Paul Gotham →FacebookTwitter分享by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksSponsor ContentBig Data Courses | Search AdOnline Big Data Courses Might Be Better than You ThinkBig Data Courses | Search AdUndoCosmoWomensTop 30 Most Beautiful Women in the WorldCosmoWomensUndoLovely&HealthyTop 10 Most Dangerous Cruises In The World Lovely&HealthyUndoby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksMore from Pickin’ SplintersBaron keeps Bonaventure close to his heart – Pickin’ SplintersUndoTah-Jae Hill, Zion Morrison and the Starting Five – Pickin’ SplintersUndo”If you had a Mount Rushmore of MCC baseball, he’s on there.” Longtime assistant Jack Christensen passes away – Pickin’ SplintersUndo Add to Google+center_img Share on Facebook Connect on Linked in This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.

Guru Dutt’s ‘Chaudvin ka Chaand’ is worth revisiting

first_imgAfter the disaster of his vaguely biographical, Kaagaz Ke Phool, Guru Dutt vowed never to direct again.For his next production, he signed M. Sadiq (director of superhits like Taj Mahal) to create a love triangle set in Lucknow, a land of Nawabs, where Islam flourished. This is the reason why the film broadly falls into the now-dead Bollywood genre of ‘Muslim Social’. A genre whose popularity this film cemented. Muslim Social as a moniker might be debatable, but Dutt knew what he was aiming for.As could be presumed from the situation which led to the production of Full Moon (as it is known abroad), Guru Dutt was more interested in recuperating the losses incurred due to the financial failure of Kaagaz Ke Phool. This further suggests the notion that Chaudvin Ka Chand will be an easy, uncomplicated, and entertaining genre exercise of jilted lovers and mistaken identities.The film fulfills that promise, but it is also a lot more.At a fair, Nawab accidentally catches the glimpse of Jamila (Waheeda Rehman) and is instantly infatuated. Tellingly, the first in a series of misdirections comes in the form of a torn veil. Nawab’s mother wants him to marry but Nawab is still mooning over the beauty he saw at the fair. With the help of one of the girls, he can get the part of the veil, which he thinks belongs to the same girl he saw at the fair. As mentioned, this is just the start of the confusion which forms the heart of this film.One thing leads to another and Nawab, to escape being married off to a girl of his mother’s choice, gets Aslam to marry her instead. Aslam being highly indebted to Nawab agrees almost instantly but not without some personal hurt as marriage is apparently, the last thing on his mind. It does not come as a real surprise that the girl Aslam is being married to is Jamila.It would be remiss to reveal the entire plot here but Dutt/Sadiq derive almost ‘Hitchockian’ suspense from the simple equation of “when will they get to know?” And when the truth is revealed to one person in the equation, it leads to another layer.What begins as a comedy of mistaken identities slowly reveals itself to be subtle, yet an effective critique of traditionalism and its potential to poison the newer generation and their relationships. Everything which happens in the film is either because of the insistence of a parent forcing their sons to follow a path determined by them. However, it is the purdah system – the social separation of men and women from daily dealings, that comes under the greatest scrutiny as it informs each of the film’s many twists.Predominantly considered an Islamic practice, the Purdah requires a woman to completely cover herself if she steps out of the house. It also requires the complete segregation of men and women at social gatherings. However, these points are not incidental in the film but major plot points are derived from it. So entrenched is this in the film’s form that Chaudvin Ka Chand cannot be imagined elsewhere. In that aspect, it is uniquely Indian.As opposed to the scenarios today, where the minority characters have all but vanished from the screen or are presented in some degraded violent context or to prove majoritarian superiority, the film also presents a society in complete harmony with itself.While the first half can be compared to a Shakespearean comedy of errors, the second one gets heavier and more tragic. Its structure is tight, confident, and aware without coming across as contrived.The male central characters – Pyare Mohan aka Nawab, Aslam (Guru Dutt), and Shaida (Johnny Walker) – are not just three friends, but they become three facets of the same society. Pyare Mohan/Nawab Sahib is born with the silver spoon in his mouth, the royalty, Shaida represents the middle-class, and Aslam the lower middle class. The dialogue in the film that these three are “one life in three bodies” sounds like a cliché or an overstatement, but it is not. These three together represent the society or at least, a significant portion of it.What’s most fascinating is that the film makes all these social engagements a part of the plot and character motivation. Nawab can casually bribe people, so he pays money to get information about the girl he is besotted with and Aslam is under so many favors from Nawab that he is ready to marry whoever Nawab asks him to and later sacrifice that same person. It is this interplay of the classes along with the purdah system which makes the film compelling and representative of not only yesterday’s India but, unfortunately, to a large extent, of today’s too. So stringently is the purdah system in place that even the slightest breach can bring forth tragic consequences. The finale of the film, where one character urges another to keep this tale hidden forever, is yet another purdah.But it would be remiss to simply see these characters as ciphers representing societal strata, their interaction, and various sacrifices are funny, genuinely moving, and even sweet.It is tempting to call some aspects of this film clichéd but remember, this is where it all started. Going by today’s standards the film surely leans towards melodrama. Everything is overstated and is sometimes repetitious. But it has an overall intelligence and skill which many films of this era lack.Both Dutt and Rehman were two of the most subtle and effortless actors of the era, and they bring something special here. You believe them as friends. Johnny Walker mostly provided the ‘comic relief’ but was equally adept at drama whenever required (as anyone who has seen Anand can attest).Perhaps the thorniest aspect of this film is the character of Waheeda Rahman. The plot reloves around her but she remains completely oblivious to everything till the end. A blank slate where men who run society write what they want. But, she gradually becomes the center of the film around which men plan, worry, tumble, and eventually, fail. Her character, despite not voicing anything, becomes the core of the film.The cinematography by V.K. Murthy, Dutt’s regular, is a standout too. Murthy understood the importance of aligning his visuals with the character/situation’s mood and never over lit any scene. The music is similarly excellent. The standout, of course, is the title song, and some fine qawwalis add to the overall atmosphere.In an international context, Pyaasa remains Dutt’s most regarded film, currently enjoying a rediscovery of sorts on streaming services such as Mubi, and even in India, this film is relegated as a footnote in Guru Dutt’s filmography, more famous for the title song and ‘Waheeda Rehman’s beauty’ than its other considerable merits.Pyaasa, a powerful experience that it is, in my opinion, has a tendency to preach and threatens to fall apart in the second half. Chaudvin Ka Chaand, on the other hand, simply wants to tell a story. Because its themes are mostly shown and rarely voiced, they work can be easily missed, but they actually gather in power as the film goes on and as a result, come across as more enduring.If your introduction to the cinema of Guru Dutt started and finished with Pyaasa and the intermittently brilliant Kaagaz Ke Phool, then Chaudvin ka Chaand is the missing link that you need to explore.last_img read more
