Trinity Preparing for interview questions
Hello, my name is Cory Minter and I am with Ethan May and we were with Trinity Employment Specialists. We are the a player. Matchmakers is what we try to do, try to help employers find a players and help a players find the a player, employers. That’s what we try to do and it is. It is really rewarding when you’re able to get that done today. This is the finally we’re done with this particular series. I, we created a worksheet, a worksheet to put on our website and I was gonna. I was gonna. Go through it in. I thought that it seemed pretty simple because it’s only a two sided sheet worksheet, but CNC Machining, we did. This is our fourth version a or our fourth, a segment episode of going through this because there’s so much content in such a little bit. Eat a workshop, but if you would, if you’re interested in this, go to our website at Trinity Employment Dot Com and you can download this under our career resources and it’ll give you a really great snapshot of things to do when preparing for interviews.
So this particular segment, it’s for the employee that is looking for a job, someone who’s struggling, trying to find the right position, CNC Machining, you know, they’re feeling unprepared and their interviews are not understanding exactly what things are not going right and they’re looking for different ideas to improve. And this particular segment, we’ve talked about everything in the process except for the questions that you might get asked when you’re in an interview. And CNC Machining, I think a lot of people are like, that’s the most important part. Why were you talking about all this stuff? But, CNC Machining, but yeah, [inaudible] interviewing questions, preparing for it. It is, it is a really important part of it. Of course, it’s like the test, you know, when Merlin hearing school, I mean college and all you wanted was the answers to the test. You’re like, man, I would crush it then with CNC Machining.
Well, I’m going to give you, I’m going to give you the test, like almost guaranteed Ethan Ossuary. I’ve never even shared this with you, but like almost guaranteed we can help people know and be prepared for almost anything that they could be asked. Oh yeah. And it’s really simple to do, and this is, this is what I. I went out and I taught a course on this for years and so many people thank me for this one little bit of advice. He taught a course on this where man, I’ve taught hundreds of courses. Professors, professor. Alright, cool man. They used to. They used to pay me to come and talk about this stuff in, in all these different schools. They, you know, I wrote, I wrote a book about this. It’s published and I sold it to a university. Wow. I didn’t even know this semester. Our professor continue. Please. You didn’t know this. I want to. I want to hear the. I’ll give you a copy of it. I’ll do that same thing that so many different people do. They give you a book of theirs. I don’t know if you were in then they sign it for you.
Best wishes, Corey. Well, some of the advice has changed a little bit since then, but this is the advice that works really does. If you will go out and Google and say sample interviewing questions and you get yourself ready and know what you’re going to say for each one of those questions, most likely they’re, you know, if you were to google something like that, they’re going to come in numbers of like 35 to 135. And really, truly, if you know what you’re going to say in every one of those different scenarios, you’re going to cover almost anything that is thrown at you. And so the problem is, is that people in an interview, you ask them a question and especially if they’re really wanting the job and they’re nervous, they look like a deer in a headlight and they hadn’t prepared for it. And the like, well, Dag Gum, I better come up with something real quick and I’m seeing this for CNC Machining.
I know that you have. And, and, and so it doesn’t come off very well. But, CNC Machining, you know, I’ve, I’ve, I said it in the last segment, you know, your level of preparation really changes your circumstances sometimes. And so that’s what we’re, that’s what we’re here to encourage you to do. CNC Machining, so tell us a little bit about the stats, like what are, what are recruiters looking to see from job seekers recruiters? First off, I mean they spend so much of their time going through resumes. We set it in the last segment, but on average a single job opening will receive about 250 applicants, which is a ton. And when you think about recruiters who are staffing for 10, 12, 15, 20 positions at a time, you can imagine how many resumes to go through. CNC Machining, but this is a pretty staggering number, but it’s a very accurate number.
Says on average recruiter takes about six seconds to scan a resume before they decide if they’re interested or they’re going to toss it. And when, when you read this, because I watched you read it, you were like shocked. Why were you shocked that, that was interesting? Because it, it shocked me because hearing that is. I mean, it sounds almost ridiculous, but then I thought I’m one of those recruiters and I said six seconds, maybe less sometimes. I mean, you know, almost immediately whether you do, but that’s just pretty staggering to hear because you put a lot of work into your resume and when you hear that it can be discounted and written off in about six seconds. That’s a little daunting. You know, you know what’s so crazy that I think about that just from, you know, trying to find the right person for trinity and stuff like that is the margin of error that you must have if you’re only spending like six seconds there because you’re really trying to find culture, you know, and I’m getting us off base with new.
You think about the margin of error there that’s happening. One on the, on the behalf of the employee who might have written their resume in a way that did not grab the attention and then also the error on the recruiter’s perspective where you’re only. I mean we’re, we’re, you know, even the meeting that we had today where we having were like we’ve got to go crank in pushing and the pressure that you guys feel to make sure and get as much done in a day as possible. That really that really, CNC Machining, yeah, I was surprised that you were shocked by that actually. It’s by the, the, I think here are seeing it written out, hearing it, you know, but the actuality of it is really true. You know what I mean? That’s reality. That’s what happens. Yeah. What are some of the other stats that interested you, man?
So skill sets listed first on a resume. Forty one percent of recruiters want to see that right up there at the top. Show me what you can do. And again, it’s not like a whole page of skills, but eight to 12 bullet points, maybe even less. It is good to see I can do this, I’m good at this, I know this and that jumps off right at the top and also 63 percent of recruiters. They want to see resumes that are tailored to the position that you are applying for. And what we mean by that is if you know that you are applying for a, we’ll just throw it out there like a, a customer service type position when we’re, you know, you’re interacting with a lot of customers, right? You’ve got to put under the skills and responsibilities of your last jobs, make sure that you’re accenting all the times that you had to interact with customers and the skills and abilities and responsibilities you had associated with that.
Is it great that you also know some quickbooks? Yeah, that’s awesome. That’s really good. But you just applied for a customer service position where that’s not necessarily as important, so that can go at the bottom of the list of skills. Make sure you’re highlighting things that specifically are tailored to the job that you’re looking for. Yeah. You know, you’re, you’re talking about that six seconds. And I brought this up in a, in an earlier thing that I was talking about, not, I can’t remember if it was on this, on this show or if it was some, some other show that I was doing, but CNC Machining, but it was, you know, when you’re driving down the road and you’re going 60 miles an hour and you see that billboard, have you ever seen those billboards? And you’re like, I really don’t know what they’re, what they’re selling, no idea.
And you have to know and when you’re doing that you’re like, dude, whoever wrote that thing, like it’s completely ineffective. You’ve got like a paragraph you’re supposed to read as you’re going 70 miles an hour and you pass it. Right? But then you have some and you’re like, oh yeah, that makes sense. Yeah, that I know what they do. I know who they are. I know what that. Your resume is really probably pretty similar to that because I bet ya you get about five, 10 seconds to see a road. It’s an awesome analogy. Your resume is a billboard and the recruiters just driving by and he’s got. They got just a few seconds to glance at it and so you got to make it pop. You got to make it stick out for what you’re able to do pretty quick. Yeah. But I mean if you’re listening to this, think about Ethan standpoint, you know, he’s, he’s recruiting and he sees something and it doesn’t have the proper job title on it.
It’s obvious that that is not really catered to what he’s looking for. Like his level of interest really dives at that at that point and CNC Machining, and if you’re interested, you might want to spend a little bit more time trying to cater your resume to the position rather than. Because really what he’s trying to screen out is, are all the people who are just blast in their resume out to anyone and everyone that they can get to it. Yeah. So, CNC Machining, so are there any, were there any other statistics that interested you before we move into some of our action items here? I mean really, I think the one that I wanted to really emphasize was that six seconds because it’s really important and a lot of that comes with a one thing that jumps out as well as how long you’ve been at a job.
When you start hopping from job to job to job, it’s, it’s pretty evident pretty quickly. CNC Machining, but one thing as well, some people get a little upset. I’ve interviewed people in later that day. They call me and they ask if there’s any updates. I mean, hours later I, I hardly had time to send the resume out and go to the bathroom. By the time they’re looking for, you know, CNC Machining, you know, something, CNC Machining, some update, but the average length of an interview process, this is from application to hire in the US in 2014, in 2015. The average was 22 point nine days. That’s three weeks. And so it takes a while. And especially when, I mean according to recruiters, 51 percent of job offers come after three interviews. I mean, you gotta realize that it’s more than just like a quick process. And so while you are preparing your resume, also be preparing your expectations as you’re hoping to hear back, hoping to get the ball rolling and jump on it when an interview comes up because you’ve got to start that process somewhere.
Yeah, absolutely. Well, listen, we had this worksheet on our website with a, with a list of 12 questions that we believe are most likely going to be asked in an interview. These are, CNC Machining, these, we, we do what we do for as long as we do it as long as we’ve done it, and so we kind of have a pretty good idea about it, but I want to encourage you to go online and check this checkout, CNC Machining, the questions there, but even if you don’t do that, just do a quick google search and start searching some interviewing questions on. Know that it will serve you well to be prepared. CNC Machining, knowledge gives you power in the more knowledge that you have on how you’re going to do, how you’re, how you’re going to answer. The more powerful, the more I’m confident that you’re going to, CNC Machining, that you’re going to appear in some of the very, very best people, the most successful people in life.
They’re just willing to do the preparation that no one else is not. My granddad told me a long time ago, he told me this. He said, listen, the most dear, follow the path of least resistance. So they follow the little trail and the, the, the big bucks, the ones that, that are always there, they’ve stayed alive. Will they were willing to stay off of that trail, which is what kept them alive and they but they were willing to go off that trail, stay off the beaten path and do more and put, put forth more work than someone else, and so in in the interview process, it’s no different than that. I just bought that story about the beer, but it made sense to me when I was, when I was a little kid. Deer Bucks go through the forest either way. Regardless of that horrible deer story, we’ve got a great worksheet that you can, that you can utilize. Go take some of this advice. I think that it will help you a lot.
