How to answer these common job interview questions

Q: Tell me a bit about yourself.

A: Are you currently in school? If you are, tell the interviewer the name of your school and what degree you're working on. If you already graduated, you can still mention your degree and the institution you received it from. Then talk about what you've been doing to prepare yourself for this potential job. This can include volunteer work, internships, attending seminars, and self-education.

Q: How did you hear about the company?

A: Tell the interviewer where you heard about the company name. Also mention how you found the job listing for the position you are interviewing for. If you've met company representatives from a previous event such as a career fair, mention this as well.

Q: Why do you want to work for this company?

A: Make it sound like you want to work for the benefit of the company instead of for personal reasons. 

Q: Do you know what we do?

A: Company websites will have an "about us" or a "mission" page where you can find information on the company's history and what it is that they do. If still in doubt, Google and Wikipedia can come in handy.

Q: Why should we hire you?

A: Speak with confidence about your abilities. If you have previous work experience in the position that you are currently applying for, let the interviewer know that it won't require a lot of resources to train you once you are hired.

Q: Where do you see yourself in five years?

A: If you are still in school, hopefully you will have graduated in five years. Let the interviewer know that you want a long-term commitment with the company. 

Q: Do you have any questions for me?

A: Never say that you don't have any questions. Ask your interviewer how long he's been working at the company. Ask about a typical working day. If the position you're interviewing for is a temporary one, ask about the opportunities for permanent job placement.

Budsies

Whether you're trying to make your kids' dream come true or trying to relive your childhood, Budsies is a great concept. Founded by Alex Furmansky, Budsies takes drawings and photos and turns them into plushies. Who wouldn't want a plushy of their best friend or their pet? I read these plushies make great gifts too.

Here's a sample of what Budsies can do.

I'm going to see if they can turn my favorite actor into a plushy. Stay tuned!
