  2. Which of these phrases can be considered as disadvantages of an applicant? (Key: H, L.)
  3. Can you add one more phrase to every column?
Comments:

Выражения A, C, D, E, F могут рассматриваться как достоинства или недостатки соискателя в зависимости от вакансии и компании, в которую он проходит собеседование. Так, для начинающей компании желание соискателя работать у лидера рынка может вызвать опасения. Мотивация только на карьерный рост и высокую зарплату, как правило, считается недостатком соискателя, так как это говорит о том, что он уйдет из компании сразу же, как только конкуренты предложат ему более высокий гросс или должность. Однако если соискатель сделает акцент на том, что готов справляться с трудностями, имеет желание не только двигаться по карьерной лестнице, но и расти профессионально, является преданным сотрудником (не «бросает» работодателя) и готов к диалогу, то компания, скорее всего, захочет предложить такому соискателю сотрудничество.

Script:

My name’s John Smith and I have 5 years of experience of developing Java applications to skill and integrate the disparate systems. I’ve completed my masters in Computer Science from North Carolina State University and I am a Java developer who’ll go the extra mile to get things done. I’ve worn many hats as a full stack developer and I’ve not limited myself to just one stack. In back-end programming I use Python, Java, Spring, Ruby and PHP. In the front-end spectrum I enjoy coding in HTML, CSS, JavaScript and frameworks like React, Angular Versions, 124 and Note. I’ve also designed large data sets on Postgres and MongoDB. I’ve got exposure to Rest API design and to security, so I know my way around as a Cell, Cookies, Tokens and so on. All my projects are based on TDD focusing and resolving application defects, testing, debugging and refining the software as a whole. I completed three projects through the full STLC process using soft technologies.

I understand the importance of team work and I’m leading a team of ten including seven developers, two testers and one business-analyst with specific supervision in coding analysis and performing unit testing on applicable codes. Currently I’m wrapping up with PNC bank. It’s a mission-critical transactional system that handles 400 concurrent users, and enhances my skills in SLA based architecture.

In my free time I really enjoy blogging about the emergent technologies and how they’re going to affect the future. I am a great gamer and I love cycling.

At this stage of my career I’m still very keen on learning new technologies and I would like to work for a company which will not only challenge my technical expertise but will also provide me with attractive career opportunities.

Thank you for your time. If you want to reach me, you can find the details in my profile.

5. Interview

А теперь обратим внимание на вопросы, которые могут быть заданы на собеседовании. 

As you see from the video CV it usually contains the description of experience, including its parts as professional skills and achievements. That is why applicants are usually asked questions about other important aspects.

Experience:

A. Communication and problem-solving skills:

1. Have you had any hard tasks at your previous job?
2. What projects have you done? What were your roles in them?
3. Did you have to contact with your co-workers and colleagues?
4. Have you ever failed? What was the issue? 

Security:

5. Why did you leave your previous job? Did you have any conflicts with your boss or colleagues?
6. Can you give a contact from your previous company?
7. What are your weaknesses?
8. Are you a risky person?

Motivation:

9. What are you going to do in 10 years?
10. Why are you looking for a job now?
11. Why are you applying for a job in our company?
12. What would you prefer: a job offer from a top company with a middle-level salary or an offer from a young developing company with a high level of salary?

Think of your possible answers to the questions. Pay attention to some important moments:

  • Quite often companies prefer to bring up young specialists with no experience to have loyal, faithful and high-motivated employees. Such people will work much longer and with more effort and enthusiasm than experienced ones focused on high salary.
  • Make a CV for every vacancy and don’t use one CV for all the positions and companies: read attentively what skills are necessary in a particular job and show you possess them.
  • Think of a company and a vacancy you are applying for, try to imagine what kind of person is necessary for the company. Analyse if you match this vacancy and why, show it in your CV and self-presentation.
