嗨 我是Snagajob的Kim 你的首席兼职助手
Hey guys, I’m Kim with Snagajob, your number one source for hourly jobs
欢迎收看Job Hunters 我们每周的求职指南节目
and welcome to Job Hunters, our weekly job search advice show.
Where we give you everything
from resume tips to interview advice,
and everything in between.
So we’re gonna be going over tips on how you should answer questions
if you’re interviewing for your very first job.
这的确很吓人 我们懂的 我们也经历过
It can be really intimidating. We know. We’ve been there.
But if you come prepared by practicing these interview questions,
you’ll go in with the confidence knowing you have what it takes to get hired.
Alright, so you’re in your first job interview
and they start asking you questions like what are your strengths.
Now this is a little scary because you’ve never had a job before
and well you might not know what your strengths are.
Avoid bringing up this concern with the interviewer
and stay away from answers like:
Uh, my Mom says I have an awesome smile. Does that count?
I’m not really sure.
This is my first job so we can find out together.
One time I ran a 7 minute mile. It was pretty awesome.
People cheered. There were streamers.
Also, avoid the most common answer to this question that employers hear.
This is easy. I’m a people person.
I’m a hard worker.
So everyone says they’re a hard worker
and what you really want to do is pick something about yourself
that will prove to them you will stand out as an employee.
So don’t just say you’re a people person,
talk about how you resolve conflicts
or how you can go up to strangers with no problem and start conversations.
Something like this can really set you apart
and show that you’ll make a great employee
Well I really do consider myself a people person.
I love assisting people and helping them out whenever I can.
I’m even good at going up to strangers and starting up a conversation.
That’s one of the things that really attracted me to this position in the first place.
I know just how much you guys value customer service
and I think I can really add something to your team.
So an answer like this will really show the interviewer that
you’ve done your research on what it takes to succeed in that role.
It will also prove you are taking your job search seriously
and will make a great fit on their team.
