For this assignment, you are to create a job interview script to study before a specific job interview. (It can be for a summer job, internship, graduate school, or an entry level position after you graduate–just make sure it’s something you can use in the near future.) You are to answer the 8 questions I have provided, plus an additional 7 questions you find through researching common interview questions online, at the library, and asking your professors, family, friends, and/or people currently working in your field. Therefore, you will prepare answers to 15 interview questions (you are welcome to do more).
Because this “script” is a document for your eyes only (not a formal document intended for others to read), I will grade this assignment on how well you prepare effective answers without focusing on writing errors. If you would like to discuss your plan to answer a specific job interview question, please ask in class when we have time or make an appointment to see me. In addition to the eight questions I’ve provided, think about what kind of questions you would expect to hear. For instance, for teaching positions, I knew I would be asked to describe my teaching philosophy and prepared accordingly.
For an extra credit point, also prepare 5 thoughtful questions that you could potentially ask the interviewer. (It’s normal to ask 1-3 questions at the end of an interview, but prepare at least 5 in case some are answered during the course of the interview.) The questions should not have to do with salary or benefits–you can negotiate these points after you’ve been offered a position. What kind of questions should you ask that could help you get a job offer? (See p. 413-414 for ideas.)
While a long document doesn’t guarantee a good grade, the majority of successful scripts for this assignment are over 1400 words and I have received scripts over 4000 words. Please number all questions consecutively (1-15) so that it is easy for me to provide feedback. Here are some complaints I have for students who lose points on this assignment:
