Although this article is good, I would have to say that these are questions that many companies ask potential employee’s that would want to work for their company. Of course, I am interested in the company or I would not have accepted the interview. So in answer to the three main questions:
Do you have the skills? Let us see here I went to college managed to graduate all three degree’s with a 3.0 or better. I have worked in numerous positions management wise. I have raised three children while attending college. (I know many people do this nowadays). However, after obtaining three degrees in Business Management and Business Administration that is not enough to obtain a job. Because I do not have experience in that field means that they will not give the job to me because they will pick the person who has experience in that field. How do you obtain the experience in that field? Well first, you have to meet someone that is willing to take a chance and give you the opportunity to obtain the experience for that field. That is hard to come by these days!
Are you enthusiastic? I go to work every day because that is what I have to do. Do I like my job? Yes! People that I work with love me because I work and I do my job. Do I motivate others? Yes! I love my job because of the customer’s that is why we are in business. The customer’s is what makes the company money. When they come into your company, establishment or business they are coming in to spend their money that they have worked hard for in return they want great customer service for the tangible or intangible items that you have with your business.
Will you fit into the team? Well you know because I have a great personality I believe that I fit into any type of team. I am what people would call a geek! I know this is on the internet however, I am who I am, and there is nothing that is going to change that. I love to learn new things. I am a leader not a follower I try to do any job with the intentions to get it done without regards to anyone else on the team. You have to work together to get something accomplished. This type of question can mean several different things if you stop and think about it. It could mean are you willing to spend an excessive amount of money and live above your means, take expensive vacations, buy the most expensive car or anything else. In my opinion, you have to be a leader and make sure that the people around you know that you are a leader.
You know for the last seven years I have been told that I have too much education, I do not have enough skills or knowledge, I am over qualified for every job that I apply for, and most of all the moment they find out I am homeschooling puts a big damper on finding the right job. I show up to work on time, I never call out, and when my schedule is changed well that is all part of it. Being in business means that you have to go beyond without regards to how it affects your life. You have to be willing to work countless hours to make sure that your employee’s are doing the job that they are required to do.
So the main question I have towards companies is what can your company do for me? Is there going to be continual learning in how your company works? I have given you a preview of what I can offer and there is more than what I have written here.
