Phase 1: Individual Project
Topic: How to prepare for a Job Interview
I’ve been ask by my supervisor to deliver an oral presentation about business communication: how to prepare for a job interview. This presentation is for business managers who work both groups of small and large public and private organizations.
Introduction: In the business industry, communication skills are very much important. Today most people such as managers, supervisor and CEO’s have a lot of responsible. They also, perform public speaks, presentations and job interviews. Those sources has become with great communication skills and decision making tips. ‘’ One of the main business communications, that I would like to discuss is job interview. A job interview – is a process in which a potential employee is evaluated by an employer for prospective employment in their company, organization, or firm. During this process, the employer hopes to determine whether or not the applicant is suitable for the role. Doing an interview process there are many methodology behavior skills that are measured to see if the employer fit the job position. Those elements are appearance, professionalism, warmth, communication ethics and performance. Most pre-employers have nervousness’, such as a slower tone, attitude and less eye contact.
History of interview questions: In interview that considered ‘’structured interviews, there are typically two types of questions interviewers ask the applications: situation questions and behavioral questions both types of question are based on critical incidents that are required to perform the job. Critical incidents are relevant tasks that are required for the job and can be collected through interviews or surveys with current employees, managers, or subject matter experts.
Behavioral –Question: ( experience-based or patterned behavioral) interviews are past orient in that they ask respondents to relate what they did in past jobs or life situations that are relevant to the particular job relevant knowledge, skills ,and abilities required for success. Example of behavior questions in preparation of a interview: Describe a situation in which you were able to use persuasion to successfully convince someone to see things your ways. Give me an example of a time when you set a goal and were able to meet or achieve it. Give an example of a time when you had to conform to a policy with which you did not agree.
Situation: Describe the situation that you in or the task that you needed to accomplish
Task: What goal were you working toward?
Action: Describe the actions you took to address the situation with detail and focus on yourself. What specific steps did you take and what was your contribution?
Result: Describe the outcome of your actions. What happened?
Situational Interview Questions: Situational interviews questions ask job applicants to imagine a set of circumstances and then indicate how they respond in that situation; the questions are future oriented. Examples: Background questions include a focus on work experience, education, and other qualifications.
Body: The job-relevant applicant attitudes that the questions purportedly assess are thought to be necessary for one to successfully perform on the job. The job relevant construct that have assessed in the interview can be classified into three categories: general traits, experiential factors and core job elements.
General traits: Mental ability, applicant’s capacity to learn and process information. Personality: Conscientiousness, agreeableness, emotional stability, extroversion, openness to new experiences.
Experiential factors: Experience: job relevant knowledge derived from prior experience. Education: job relevant knowledge derived from prior education. Training: job relevant knowledge derived from prior training.
