What are some common questions that an interviewer would ask in a job interview ?
Krease has been mulling over this problem and has made a list of some of the questions that he would like to ask. Unfortunately they are not in an English format. Hereís the list. Could you put his ideas into complete sentences ?
1. Present Job/dislike/like ?
2. future/U/5years ?
3. Y/me/hire/Earthling ?
4. Direction/take ?
6. With others/work/alone ?
7. Pressure /deadlines?
8. Accomplishments/failures ?
9. Y or where/here/work ?
10. Situation/faced/difficult ?
12. Do/how/differently/career ?
Can you make up a list of questions that a candidate might ask a representative of a firm like : How is one judged in this position ? How is success measured in this firm?
Now that you have quite a few questions you might break up in twos and pretend to conduct the interview. Answer the questions as if you really were the applicant as they would apply to you. Alternate being the extraterrestrial and the candidate.
These are often called « loaded questions » meaning in part that they are difficult to answer. Discuss in class why these were hard to answer and why would a firm be interested in how you respond. Are these trick questions ? Try to give a resume of what you learned about the other student.
