309A电工,306A水管工等证书,考试中国人不怕,评估真的很难吗?

2017年以来,很多在国内做过电工,水工的移民朋友和在加拿大做过电工,水工助手的移民朋友,本来打算来到加拿大考相应行业证书,做自己熟悉的工作,但是随着安省增加了第三方背景调查后,增加了一定的难度,
很多本来符合条件的移民朋友放弃了申请行业考试的机会,回归了labor 工队伍,从而失去了获得高薪稳定工作的机会。

很多移民朋友认为评估是一道不可逾越的鸿沟。
评估真的很难吗?为什么会让很多移民朋友望而却步呢?
答案当然是否定的!
如果您了解了评估的条件和要求,只要您坚定必胜信念,自己就一定能通过评估!
一般评估需要的条件:
1)加拿大境内外5年的工作经验,9000小时以上。
2)职业学院接受过相应的知识培训证明,如电工code的培训学习。
3)雇主推荐信,雇主单位和推荐人信息,联系时间,联系语言(中国国内联系人当然用汉语交流)
4)雇主单位人力资源管理部门联系人。
5)填写个人信息相应表格,读懂表格的内容,弄清第三方调查的要求。
一般来说满足了以上5条的相应条件,评估通过都不存在问题。
愿符合条件的移民朋友能重拾信心,尽早获得适合自己的行业证书,获得稳定高薪工作!
加拿大有句俗话,只要你坚持,你一定会成功!如果你放弃,上帝也没办法。

(ECA)幼教助理 就业容易,晋升机会多

(ECA)幼教助理  就业容易,晋升机会多
ECA的全称是早期幼儿教育助理,早期幼儿教育助理工作的主要职责是帮助早期幼儿教育的教师管理学生,安排日常活动。工作的对象主要是0-12岁的儿童,每天的工作职责包括带领学生完成每天专门设计的学习内容和活动,比如给孩子讲故事,教唱儿歌和手工,给孩子准备正餐和点心,安排和设计房间,帮助孩子养成良好的饮食、穿着和卫生习惯,填写给家长的报告和保持教室干净整洁等等。

当然,通过这些活动,可以学习到很多实际的工作经验,包括懂得如何和家长打交道,锻炼自己的语言能力,学习处理紧急事件的发生等等,一旦各方面的条件成熟以后,就可以申请更高层次的学习,例如去进修ECE,或者是Teacher’s College,政府给了很多优惠的政策,免费让有工作经验的早期幼儿教育助理进修ECE课程。

早期幼儿教育是一个受加拿大政府大力扶持的产业,仅10年来,安大略省新建3000个以上DAY CARE,因此需要大量的受过早期幼儿教育专业培训的工作人员;另外,从2006年起加拿大政府给每个有6岁以下孩子的家庭每个月补贴100加币的托管费,再加上牛奶金,每个家庭可以得到一笔不少的钱,用来给孩子提供最好的教育机会。可预见的未来10年,随着加拿大移民数量的人数和新生儿数量不断增加,Day Care数量和规模也会不断的提高,这对于幼教工作者和希望从事幼儿教育工作的人士来说无疑是喜讯,因为此举意味着幼教的就业前景非常乐观。

早期幼儿教育经过专业培训后,有很多就业的机会,既可以毕业后去day care, kindergarten, preschool, nursery school, community center and other organization工作,获得稳定的收入和优厚的福利;又可以按照政府的规定,自己开办幼儿园,提出申请,一旦政府有关工作人员调查了场地,认为硬件设备符合相关规定,就可以招生了,这样不但自己有一份稳定收入的同时,也可以同时照顾自己的孩子。

很多对于幼儿教育感兴趣,想从事该行业的人担心他们的英语不好,不能顺利完成学业和找到相关的工作,其实很多这种担心是完全没有必要的。因为随着移民的增加,需要很多懂英文和中文,广东话的工作人员。对于助理这一职位,英文的要求没有教师的要求高,很多早期幼儿教育教师也都是先从助理开始干的,等他们有了一定的工作经验后,幼儿园、DAY CARE和政府会提供公费培训的机会,让他们成为早期幼儿教师。

早期幼儿教育永远是加拿大各级政府部门优先大力支持,政策倾斜鼓励发展行业。
因此早期幼儿就业助理就业容易,晋升机会多,工作稳定,工作条件好。

PSW (私人护理) 蕴藏着巨大就业机会的行业 :

PSW (私人护理) 蕴藏着巨大就业机会的行业  :

PSW,全称是Personal Support Worker, 翻译成中文就是私人护理工作人员,帮助那些生活不能完全自理,需要照顾的人,提供包括 Home management (如:购物、清洁、膳食准备),Personal Care(如:更衣、个人卫生),Family Responsibility( 如照顾孩子), Social and Recreational Activities(如去教会、购物参加Party)和精神安抚等方面的服务。 照顾的对象不分年龄阶层,社会需求量巨大。

当今,在加拿大的经济高速发展的背后,社会人口老龄化问题日益严重,尤其婴儿潮出生的一代人,现在都到了需要照顾的年龄,这给政府的卫生保健部门增加了很大的压力,社会对护理业人员的需求不断增加, 导致加拿大的护理人员总人数相对于老年需要照顾的人员总数相对比例不断减少,各类医院、诊所、社区康复中心的护理人员严重短缺;社会需要大量的经过专业培训的私人护理工作人员,预计今后20年,私人护理这一职业会将成为新的就业亮点。PSW更是医疗行业里的需求人员量最大的门类。PSW拥有相当的技术含量,并非一些人所想象的是个“体力活儿”。

薪水增长快,工资待遇好

“职位天天增,薪水月月涨”这是PSW业内学员广泛流传,用来形容当前PSW就业形势的一句话。由于PSW私人护理工作人员就业市场紧缺,就业机会不断增多,薪水增加较快,有了工作经验以后可以拿到$20—$30. 私人护理工作方式和时间比较灵活,可以part-time or full-time受雇于一家老人院,养老院,或者医院,也可以选择去私人家里,自由地选择工作时间,因此如果愿意加班收入会更高。

持证上岗  走遍天下

NACC的全称是National Association of Career College,是加拿大政府统管职业培训的机构。通过NACC考试,就有了PSW的职业License,除了在薪水方面平均收入每个小时要多2块钱左右,还可以全加国通用。拥有多年办学经验的加拿大科技学院(CSTC),是NACC 指定单位考试点,学员毕业后可颁发双学历证书;学校安排学员实习,并介绍工作;所有的学生都有在大型西人,华人养老院的实习机会。除此之外,学生们还将获得NACC 的Certificate和CPR+First Aid(心肺复苏术和紧急急救)两张证书;CPR+First Aid由加拿大红十字会指定培训公司进行专业性的培训。

课程简介:

PSW专业学习时间为7个月左右,包括287个小时的课堂学习,413个小时的CO-OP实习机会,CPR/FIRST AID的培训,以及NACC考试。NACC的全称是National Association of Career College,是加拿大政府统管职业培训的机构。通过NACC考试,就有了PSW的职业License。学习科目包括14个板块,帮助学员掌握PSW的各类知识和工作技巧。

PSW私人护理的职业分析 :

1. 就业市场广阔,一方面是因为婴儿潮出生的一代人,现在都需要照顾;另一方面是因为政府拨款多。
2. 从业人员无年龄,性别限制,男女都可以。
3. 英语要求不高,新移民非常容易入行,就业率高,待遇好。
4. 收入远远高于labor功,劳动强度大大低于体力打工者。

PSW的工作场所包括:Long-term Care Facility,Community,Adult Day Programs,Supportive Housing Settings,Group Homes,Hospitals,Educational Facilities。
好老师是您学习进步的关键:
PSW学员能深受雇主的喜爱,离不开经验丰富好的老师。Monica是多伦多最受欢迎的PSW老师,她有着近20年 的教学和从医经验,曾经培养了大量优秀护士和护理人员,并获得多项奖励,同时她还是NACC教材编写和考试委员会成员。她有着丰厚的医学护理知识底蕴,课堂教学通俗易懂,深入浅出, 娓娓动听,气氛活跃,生动有趣,帮助学员准确理解掌握作为护理工作的知识要点和技巧,  Monica老师热心助人,桃李满天下,师生关系密切,多年以前毕业的学生也一直和老师保持密切地联系,并为很多学生提供了很多珍贵的工作信息。

英文面试,问题和答案—加拿大科技学院

英文面试,问题和答案–加拿大科技学院:

“What are your goals for the future?” or “Where do you see yourself in five years?” 

Don’t discuss your goals for returning to school or having a family, they are not relevant and could knock you out of contention for the job. Rather, you want to connect your answer to the job you are applying for.

最佳答案
* My long-term goals involve growing with a company where I can continue to learn, take on additional responsibilities, and contribute as much of value as I can.
* I see myself as a top performing employee in a well-established organization, like this one. I plan on enhancing my skills and continuing my involvement in (related) professional associations.
* Once I gain additional experience, I would like to move on from a technical position to management.
* In the XYZ Corporation, what is a typical career path for someone with my skills and experiences?

第一个问题一般都是这个 Tell me about yourself/ How would you describe yourself?

You walk into the interview room, shake hands with your interviewer and sit down with your best interviewing smile on. Guess what their first question is? “Tell me about yourself.” Your interviewer is not looking for a 10-minute dissertation here. Instead, offer a razor sharp sentence or two that sets the stage for further discussion and sets you apart from your competitors.

Your Unique Selling Proposition (USP)说出你的卖点

Give them “your synopsis about you” answer, specifically your Unique Selling Proposition. Known as a personal branding or a value-added statement, the USP is a succinct, one-sentence description of who you are, your biggest strength and the major benefit that a company will derive from this strength. Here is an example of a Unique Selling Proposition: “I’m a seasoned Retail Manager strong in developing training programs and loss prevention techniques that have resulted in revenue savings of over $2.3Million for (employer’s name) during the past 11 years.”

What a difference you’ve made with this statement. Your interviewer is now sitting forward in her chair giving you her full attention. At this point, you might add the following sentence: “I’d like to discuss how I might be able to do something like that for you.” The ball is now back in her court and you have the beginnings of a real discussion and not an interrogation process.

“My background to date has been centered around preparing myself to become the very best financial consultant I can become. Let me tell you specifically how I’ve prepared myself. I am an undergraduate student in finance and accounting at _________  University. My past experiences has been in retail and higher education. Both aspects have prepared me well for this career.”

首先要明确他们想了解的是哪方面的内容Do they want to know about your career so far, about your hobbies or family life? If in doubt, ASK them to clarify what they wish you to talk about. Then give a short factual answer, ending with “is there anything else you’d like to know about me?”

* How would you describe yourself?
这个问题的答案应该是和他们的招聘广告上对于雇员的要求的基本一致,所以,看看你有哪些特质满足了他们的要求吧
Try to think about what the interviewers are looking for and keep this in mind as you answer interview questions. Remember the job advert? Were they looking for initiative, a good communicator, someone with good attention to detail? Describe yourself in these terms. Start with “I am..” and not with “I think…” or “I believe..” so that you sound self aware and confident.
———————————————————–

When you’re interviewing for an internal position within your company, you may be asked what you will do if you don’t get the job. The interviewer wants to know whether you are concerned about just the advancement opportunity or the company. 内部职位竞聘常会被问到如果你没有得到这份工作的话你将会怎么办的问题。

最佳答案
I am committed to this company and its advancement so, should I not be selected, I will work with and support whoever might get selected. However, I do feel that my experience in the department and with the team would make me the best candidate

How would your boss describe you?

If you get the job, your interviewer may be your future boss so you need to answer this question carefully. Describe yourself as any boss would want to see you. You might say:

“My boss would describe me as hard working, loyal, friendly and committed. He would say that I work well on my own initiative and deliver what he wants on time and to a high standard”.

Again, don’t use the term “I think my boss would say..” as it gives an element of doubt. Be positive and certain with the interview answer you give.

* What motivates you?
I am motivated by being around other positive people, we might question if working alone would suit them.
I am motivated by targets.

* What do you look for in a job?

This is really a question about suitability, though we’ve included it here.
Remember the advert? Focus on the advert criteria and you won’t go far wrong. For example, if the advert called for someone to lead others, you might say:

“I like a job where I can lead and motivate others and enjoy seeing improvements in team performance”.

If the advert called for a target-focused individual, you might say:

“I like having targets. They encourage me to stretch myself and beat them!”

* What is your personal mission statement or motto?

Not everyone has one, but because you might be asked, think what yours would be.

“Just do it!”
“Right first time, every time”.
“Less talk, more action”.
“Treat others as you’d wish to be treated”.
“Fortune favours the brave”.
“Quality, quality, quality…”.

Our advice: This is one of those times when we ask candidates to explain their answers to our interview questions. So, whatever you say, it’s likely you’ll be asked to give a reason or example so have one in mind. For most jobs, you want to sound positive and motivated, but possibly not ruthless or inconsiderate.

* What do you enjoy most about what you do now?

“I really enjoy the technical nature of the job and the speed at which I’m able to fix faults. I get a lot of satisfaction from getting people back to work as soon as possible”.

If working as part of a team is mentioned as a requirement of the job, you might answer:

“I really enjoy being part of a team. I like it when the team pulls together to achieve something and everyone can take some credit”.

* What do you enjoy least about your current role?

A good interview answer might go something like this:

“Actually, I enjoy everything about what I do. I suppose if I had to give something up, it would be…”

The ‘something’ depends on you, but it’s best to mention something incidental to your job, like admin or paperwork. So you might say:

“I’m not sure (pause). I suppose if I had to pick something to give up it would be paperwork. I know it’s important, and I do it well, but if someone else did if for me, that would be great!”

* Why do you want to leave your current job/company?

If you’re applying for a more senior job, you might answer:
“I really enjoy what I do, but I’m ready for more responsibility and challenge which your job offers. Unfortunately, my current job/employer can’t give me this.”

If this isn’t the reason, use yours instead, but always be positive in your answers to tough interview question

* What do you think of your current boss?

“My current boss is great. He sets the team challenging but realistic targets and motivates us to achieve them…”

“My current boss is very good. She deals with her team firmly but fairly and enjoys our respect because of this…”

If your current boss is not great, and you are prepared to answer more interview questions about this, say so, but do balance each criticism with a positive point. Remember the need to appear positive in your answers to interview questions. You might say:

“My current boss has strengths and weaknesses. He is very good at listening to people but sometimes, in my view, doesn’t deal with underperformers firmly enough. This affects team morale sometimes…”

* What will you miss about your present job?

People is the best interview answer here. Say anything else and you’re suggesting the job you’re applying for won’t give you everything you had and more, and might even leave you wanting!
As you think about answers to interview questions, always have in mind the need to create a positive impression.

“Well I’m confident that the job you’re offering will give me everything I have now and more so I don’t think I’ll miss anything about the job itself. But I’ll miss some of the people of course…”

   * What can you tell me about XYZ Company?

If you need to, start by saying “Is it ok if I refer to my notes?”. When you get the nod, off you go.

A good interview answer should include short factual statements covering such things as the Company’s history, its products, staff numbers, turnover and future business objectives. Something like this is fine:

“I believe the Company began in 1967, with just one outlet, but now has 25. From what I’ve read, you sell A, B and C products across Europe and the States and have a turnover in excess of $5 million. You employ 125 staff. I beleive you hope to enter the Asian market by 2010″.   ”I’ve done some research and can tell you more if you like”.

You will likely hear “No, that’s fine. Thank you.”

Your interviewers will be impressed that you prepared and made notes and you’re off to a good start.

* What do you think XYZ Company can offer you?

There are two bits to this interview question, the role and the Company. Mention both. You might say:

“I’m told the Company has a firm commitment to individual training and development. This is great news for me because I’m keen to learn and advance in the Company. The role itself appears challenging and rewarding which I’ll find very motivating”.
    * If you’re successful, what do you think you’ll be doing day-to-day?

You might start by saying “I understand that I’ll be…”. Then you could talk about the main role, any other activities and any targets you expect to be given.

What are your strengths/weaknesses?

IMPORTANT — this common job interview question can be asked in many different ways, such as “What qualities do you admire in others that you would like to develop in yourself?”

Strengths should be easy enough to think about (keep the position in mind).

Talking about weaknesses can be harder but good interview answers are still possible. Many people choose to mention something which they’ve recognized as being a weakness but have overcome.

“I’d like to be more organized, like one of my colleagues. She doesn’t have to try. But because I don’t find it as easy as her, I use to-do lists and a diary to help me successfully manage my work”.

On a final note, it’s much safer to highlight your lack of experience or knowledge as a weakness than a fault in your personality. Employers can always give you experience but few want to help you overcome shortcomings in your personality! So avoid telling interviewers that you “get bored” or “too involved” or “frustrated”!

Why did you think you are suited to this job?

What they are really asking is “You know what we are looking for so can you tell us what you have done or what you have, that is relevant.”

Why should we give the job to you above other applicants?

This is often our closing question. We want to know, in a nutshell, why you are the best candidate for the job. This is a chance to list your best attributes as they relate to the vacancy. Don’t be cocky, but don’t be shy.\

* How well do you work under pressure?

“I know that all jobs involve some sort of pressure at some time.  I can work as well under pressure as I do at any other time but when I am busy, I prioritize activities so that my workload is manageable.”

If the interviewers focus on other pressure, such as pressure to meet targets, dealing with difficult customers etc, give an appropriate reply, mentioning past situations where you have coped under such pressure.

* What sort of people do you find it difficult to work with?

“I am an easy going person who seems to get on with everyone. If I have to pick a type of person that bothers me, it’s the one who doesn’t pull their weight or isn’t worried about the standard of their work because it reflects badly on the rest of the team.”

* Sell me this pen!

In interviews for sales job, you may hear this, believe us! In fact, one o- -s had a non-sales interview and was asked this, unexpectedly. The object you are asked to sell could in fact be anything. Some interviewers like to see whether you focus on the benefits of the object or its features. The features of the pen might be that it’s blue, with a roller ball and plastic coating. The benefits might be that it’s reliable, easy to hold and leak proof.

* What key skills do you think you need to be successful in this role?

You got this far because your job application form or resume or CV matched the interviewers’ criteria as specified in the job advert. Just expand on this in your job interview answers. List the skills you think are required, giving a little explanation as to why each is needed.

You might then be asked to give examples where you’ve used one or more of these skills. These are behavioural interview questions.

* Where do you see yourself in five years time?

This can be a difficult job interview question to answer, especially if you’ve not thought beyond getting this job!  When you answer, you want to sound ambitious enough to be motivated to do a good job, but not too ambitious in case your interviewers think you’re only using this job as a stepping stone to something better.

I can be successful in this job and taken on additional responsibilities and be considered suitable for promotion.

* How does this job fit into your career plans?

This is a similar job interview question to the one above really, except that it looks beyond five years. Be realistic. You might say something like this if you’re going for a middle-management position:

“My ambition is to lead a department and be involved in strategic decision-making at a senior level. I expect the role I’m applying for to give me more experience of leading and some introduction to strategy so that I’m ready for a senior role in a few years time”.

* Where did you think you’d be at this stage in your life?

Avoid saying further than you are now! It’s better to show you’ve met or exceeded your ambitions than fallen short of them. Tell the interviewers that you are happy with your life and career, but are looking for more challenge as you like to stretch yourself to achieve more.

* If you could start again, what career decisions would you make differently?

You’re on sticky ground if you start trying to think of hypothetical career changes that might have served you better in the past. Your answers to interview questions will suggest you’re not happy with the way things are and no-one wants to hire an unhappy person.

“I wouldn’t change anything. I am happy with my career as it is now but want fresh challenges.”
“I’m not the kind of person who looks back with regrets. I prefer to invest my energy looking forward”.

* How would you approach a typical project?

If you’re applying for a project based job, such as a project manager, you will be asked this job interview question. Don’t give a long winded answer, but try to demonstrate that you would take into account the main components of effective project planning such as:

- Planning the schedule backwards from completion
- Working out what you need to get the job done effectively and on time
- Budgeting — costs, time and resources
- Allowing a contingency

* How would you get the best from people?

If you are applying for any management role, it is highly likely you’ll be asked this job interview question. The kind of skills that we’d be looking for in a good applicant are:

- Good communication
- Teamwork skills
- Recognizing what each person can bring
- Setting a good example
- Praising good performances

* Give us an example of how you have resolved conflict.

As this is a behavioural interview question, you need to find an example of conflict that you have resolved. The sort of skills you need to demonstrate in your interview answer are:

- Fairness
- Discussing problems with individuals in private
- Making sure you get to the root of the problem
- Finding a solution that everyone will accept

* What did you look for when you hired people in the past?

This is a general question. Don’t think about specific skills of the job you are applying for. Think generally about the key attributes everyone looks for in a good applicant. Among others, these include:

- Aptitude
- Skills
- Initiative
- Flexibility
- Commitment

Do you work best by yourself or as part of a team?

Most jobs require both, to varying degrees.

As with all answers to job interview questions, think about the position you are applying for. Are the interviewers looking for a team worker? Did they mention this in the advert or is it implicit in the job description?  If a team player is required, tell the interviewers that you work well in a team. Give an example if you can. You might say:

“I prefer to work in teams. I find that better decisions are reached when people work together and share ideas. Of course I’m happy to work alone when required too.”

If the job is mostly done alone, you might say:

“I work very well by myself because I’m self motivated, organized and conscientious. I’m comfortable working in teams though and recognize that this is better in some situations”.

* What kind of personality do you work best with and why?

You will deal with many personalities in any job. If the interviewers know the people you’ll be working with, they might have a personality in mind! It’s hard for you to know this however so stick to a safe answer. You might say:

“I find I work well with almost everyone but who I work best with might depend on the activity. If it’s a project, I prefer to work with someone who’s practical and organized because this is important. If it’s leading a discussion, working with someone who’s a good facilitator helps.”

* How would you go about establishing your credibility quickly within the team?

Gaining credibility quickly is important. Make sure you listen, learn, question, understand. You might say: “That’s a good question and I realize it’s important to gain credibility quickly. I believe the best way is to show your colleagues that you respect their experience and want to learn from them as well as about them. You need to listen, ask the right questions and make sure you understand. If they can see you’ll fit in early on, it helps”.

* Tell me about a time where you had to deal with conflict on the job.

This is a behavioural interview question.  If you can’t think of an example, it’s ok to say so. If that’s the case, either say how you would deal with it, or use an example where someone you know dealt with conflict well.

Most interviewers would look for:
o Getting both sides of the argument
o Suggesting and agreeing compromise
o Showing tactfulness
o Showing empathy

* What irritates you about other people, and how do you deal with it?

Personal conflict is inevitable in the workplace  Try not to say that A or B irritates you. Instead, talk about the characteristics which you find hard, not the people. You might say:

“I find I get on with most people so it’s not normally a problem. It’s rather disappointing when people don’t pull their weight I suppose and this has happened. In that instance I spoke to the person in private, explained that they were letting the team down and asked them to make more of an effort. They did.”

“Can you give me some idea of the salary you’re expecting?” 
is one of those job interview questions that can really get you tongue-tied.
What do you say? Usually, moments later, you realize you’ve accepted a salary far lower than you wanted. Although you were prepared to negotiate your salary, you panicked at the last minute and lost your nerve. As you leave the interview room, your excitement at getting the job is tainted. You can’t help feeling undervalued, even a little duped. Ask for too much and you risk looking unrealistic, over confident, maybe even greedy. Ask for too little and you risk undervaluing yourself and your contribution, and ultimately being underpaid. For many o- -s, salary is one of the most important factors in taking a job, but it’s often the hardest to deal with.

Nerves got the better of her and worried about sounding greedy, she suggested a lower amount. When she was offered the job, there was the salary she suggested, right at the start of the offer letter. She wasn’t surprised but she was disappointed. So how can you avoid this happening to you?

* Research is essential when it comes to suggesting a reasonable salary. Take time to look though job advertisements for similar positions. Research the WWW or post a question in a forum or on Yahoo! Answers
Research the Company too. A large Company, if asked, will probably have more scope to offer you a better benefits package than a smaller one

* Don’t initiate salary discussions or say anything about pay during your job interview unless asked
* If you’re asked for a figure, suggest a range rather than an actual figure. This gives room to negotiate if a firm job offer is made during the job interview
* If you’re offered the job and reach agreement on a salary, make sure the written job offer states this amount clearly
* And when it comes to the actual salary negotiation here are 6 essential salary
* The most important thing to remember when discussing your salary is that it is a negotiation. Like any form of bartering, the first figure you mention in the job interview probably won’t be the figure you agree on. But it’s a place to start.
* Be confident about what you’re worth. Recognise that you’re bringing something unique to the Company, and that you’re worth the wage you’re requesting. Even if you’ve only just finished school or college, you still have something unique to offer and it’s important to bear that in mind as you think about salary negotiation.
* Remember also that it’s not easy finding the right person for a job. If you’ve impressed the interviewers enough to employ you, you have the upper hand and paying a little more to keep you isn’t too big a deal. So ask for a slightly higher salary than you expect.
* If the job advertisement mentions a salary range, employers will be prepared to pay more for the right candidate. If you’re a little uncomfortable asking for the top figure, choose one just above the mid-range. This gives the impression that you are worth a good wage and is a great place to start.
Assuming an advertised salary range of $30,000 to $42,000, you might say this:
“I’m expecting a salary in the region of $38,000, based on my knowledge and experience”.
* Remember that salary is not everything. If the salary is less than you hoped and the Company won’t or can’t go any higher, ask about other benefits which are important to you like training courses, financial help with further study and so on.

What specific goals, including those related to your occupation, have you established for your life?

I want to be working for an excellent company like yours in a job in which I am managing information. I plan to contribute my leadership, interpersonal, and technical skills. My long-range career goal is to be the best information systems technician I can for the company I work for.

3. How has your college experience prepared you for a business career?

I have prepared myself to transition into the work force through real-world experience involving travel abroad, internship, and entrepreneurial opportunities. While interning with a private organization in Ecuador, I developed a 15-page marketing plan composed in Spanish that recommended more effective ways the company could promote its services. I also traveled abroad on two other occasions in which I researched the indigenous culture of the Mayan Indians in Todos Santos, Guatemala, and participate din a total language immersion program in Costa Rica. As you can see from my academic, extracurricular, and experiential background, I have unconditionally committed myself to success as a marketing professional.

4. Please describe the ideal job for you following graduation.

My ideal job is one that incorporates both my education and practical work skills to be the best I can be. Namely combining my education in finance with my working knowledge of customer service operations, entrepreneurial abilities, computer skills, and administrative skills. I want to utilize my analytical expertise to help people meet their financial goals. This is exactly why I am convinced that I would be a very valuable member of the Merrill Lynch team.

What influenced you to choose this career?

My past experiences have shown me that I enjoy facing and overcoming the challenge of making a sale. Without a doubt, once I have practiced my presentation and prepared myself for objections, I feel very confident approaching people I don’t know and convincing them that they need my product. Lastly, I like sales because my potential for success is limited only by how much of myself I dedicate toward my goal. If any profession is founded on self-determinism, it surely must be sales.

At what point did you choose this career?

I knew that I wanted to pursue information systems technology about my sophomore year in college. It was then that I realized that my hobby (computers) was taking up most of my time. My favorite courses were IT courses. I also realized that I was doing computer-oriented work-study that I enjoyed so much I would have done it for free.

What specific goals have you established for your career?
My goals include becoming a Certified Financial Advisor so I can obtain a better working knowledge of financial research analysis, which would allow me contribute to my client base as a better financial consultant since I would have that extra insight into the companies they are seeking to invest in. Also this is the foundation block to advancing my career to portfolio manager or even branch office manager.

What will it take to attain your goals, and what steps have you taken toward attaining them?
I’ve already done some research on other workers at Merrill Lynch to see how they achieved similar goals. I know that Merrill Lynch encourages the pursuit and will reimburse for tuition of a graduate degree. I plan on pursuing a MBA to give me an even more extensive knowledge of business and financial analysis.

How did you handle a challenge?

* During a difficult financial period, I was able to satisfactorily negotiate repayment schedules with multiple vendors.
* When the software development of our new product stalled, I coordinated the team which managed to get the schedule back on track. We were able to successfully troubleshoot the issues and solve the problems, within a very short period of time.
* A long-term client was about to take their business to a competitor. I met with the customer and was able to change how we handled the account on a day-to-day basis, in order to keep the business

When you’re asked what your greatest weakness is, try to turn a negative into a positive. For example, a sense o- -rgency to get projects completed or wanting to triple-check every item in a spreadsheet can be turned into a strength i.e. you are a candidate who will make sure that the project is done on time and your work will be close to perfect.

Weakness
* When I’m working on a project, I don’t want just to meet deadlines. Rather, I prefer to complete the project well ahead of schedule.
* Being organized wasn’t my strongest point, but I implemented a time management system that really helped my organization skills.
* I like to make sure that my work is perfect, so I tend to perhaps spend a little too much time checking it. However, I’ve come to a good balance by setting up a system to ensure everything is done correctly the first time.
* I used to wait until the last minute to set appointments for the coming week, but I realized that scheduling in advance makes much more sense.

Strength
* When I’m working on a project, I don’t want just to meet deadlines. Rather, I prefer to complete the project well ahead of schedule.
* I have exceeded my sales goals every quarter and I’ve earned a bonus each year since I started with my current employer.
* My time management skills are excellent and I’m organized, efficient, and take pride in excelling at my work.
* I pride myself on my customer service skills and my ability to resolve what could be difficult situations.

How well can you work in stressful situations?

* Stress is very important to me. With stress, I do the best possible job. The appropriate way to deal with stress is to make sure I have the correct balance between good stress and bad stress. I need good stress to stay motivated and productive.
* I react to situations, rather than to stress. That way, the situation is handled and doesn’t become stressful.
* I actually work better under pressure and I’ve found that I enjoy working in a challenging environment.
* From a personal perspective, I manage stress by visiting the gym every evening. It’s a great stress reducer.
* Prioritizing my responsibilities so I have a clear idea of what needs to be done when, has helped me effectively manage pressure on the job.
* If the people I am managing are contributing to my stress level, I discuss options for better handling difficult situations with them.

What’s motivates you?

* I was responsible for several projects where I directed development teams and implemented repeatable processes. The teams achieved 100% on-time delivery of software products. I was motivated both by the challenge of finishing the projects ahead of schedule and by managing the teams that achieved our goals.
* I’ve always been motivated by the desire to do a good job at whatever position I’m in. I want to excel and to be successful in my job, both for my own personal satisfaction and for my employer.
* I have always wanted to ensure that my company’s clients get the best customer service I can provide. I’ve always felt that it’s important, both to me personally, and for the company and the clients, to provide a positive customer experience.
* I have spent my career in sales, typically in commission-based positions, and compensation has always been a strong factor in motivating me to be the top salesperson at my prior employers.

Salary Negotiations

If you’re asked what your salary requirements are, say that they are open based upon the position and the overall compensation package. Or tell the employer you’d like to know more about the responsibilities and the challenges of the job prior to discussing salary.
Another option is to give the employer a salary range based upon the salary research you’ve done up front. Once you’ve received the offer you don’t need to accept (or reject) it right away. A simple “I need to think it over” can get you an increase in the original offer.

And if you’re ambivalent about the position a “no” can bring you a better offer too. I turned down a position I knew I didn’t want, regardless of salary, and received three follow-up phone calls upping the compensation package.

Negotiating a Raise

Be aware of company policy regarding compensation. Be flexible. Would you consider an extra couple of weeks vacation instead of a raise? I know someone who’s regularly taken time-off instead of money and now has six vacation weeks a year… Then, ask your supervisor for a meeting to discuss salary. Present your request, supported by documentation, calmly and rationally. Don’t ask for an immediate answer. Your boss is mostly likely going to have to discuss it with Human Resources and/or other company managers. Despite your best efforts, there may simply not be enough money in the budget to increase your salary or compensation package offer. The company may also not want to create inequities by paying one person more than others in a similar position. In that case, you can at least know you tried. Plus, if this is a job you really think that you’re going to love, consider whether the company culture, the benefits, and the job itself are worth it – regardless of the salary.

What Are You Passionate About?

* One of my greatest passions is helping others. When I was younger, I’ve enjoyed helping mom with household repairs. As I grew older, that habit grew and I desired to help others as well. I like helping people find solutions that meet their specific needs.
* I’m passionate about painting. I take an evening art class once a week and try to find time each weekend to paint. Painting is a good way for me to relax and even though I don’t have much talent, I do it enjoy it.
* I lost my father to pancreatic cancer and ever since then, I have spent time volunteering to help raise awareness and funding for cancer research. I volunteer for PanCan, the advocacy group, and I’m part of their volunteer network. One of the things I’m passionate is to assist in finding a cure, however I can.
* I’m passionate about making a difference. When I’m involved with a project at work I want to do my best to achieve success. I feel the same way about what I do in my personal life.
* I’m an avid skier and I like to spend weekends and vacations on the ski slopes.

“What Do People Most Often Criticize About You?

There’s no on-going criticism. I’m open to personal and professional growth and welcome the opportunity to improve.

I have a teenage daughter – few things I do are okay on her radar screen.

Why do you want this job? 

* This is not only a fine opportunity, but this company is a place where my qualifications can make a difference. As a finance executive well versed in the new stock options law, I see this position as made to order. It contains the challenge to keep me on my toes. That’s the kind of job I like to anticipate every morning.
* I want this job because it seems tailored to my competencies, which include sales and marketing. As I said earlier, in a previous position I created an annual growth rate of 22 percent in a flat industry. Additionally, the team I would work with looks terrific.
* I well understand that this is a company on the way up. Your Web site says the launch of several new products is imminent. I want be a part of this business as it grows.
* Having worked through a college business major building decks and porches for neighbors, this entry-level job for the area’s most respected home builder has my name on it.
* As a dedicated technician, I like doing essential research. Being part of a breakthrough team is an experience I’d love to repeat.
* This job is a good fit for what I’ve been interested in throughout my career. It offers a nice mix of short- and long-term activities. My short-term achievements keep me cranked up and the long-term accomplishments make me feel like a billion bucks.

* I want this job selling theater tickets because I’d be good at it. I’m good at speaking to people and handling cash. I would like a job with regular hours and I’m always on time.
* Although some companies are replacing Americans with imported low-wage workers, you are standing tall. This company’s successful strategies, good reputation and values make it heads and shoulders above its competition.
* I’d fit right in as a counter clerk in your fine drycleaners. I have observed that the counter clerk position requires competence at handling several activities in quick order — customer service, payments, bagging and phones. I like multitasking and, as a homemaker, I have a lot of practice in keeping all the balls in the air.
* The work I find most stimulating allows me to use both my creative and research skills. The buzz on this company is that it rewards people who deliver solutions to substantial problems.
