Not new job news I’m afraid, a quick report after an interview for the Olympics 2012 next year and more so in the hope for response of ‘ideas’. It’s a voluntary position, working just 10 days out of next year somewhere in London, probably directly people or similar and nothing too crazy but I just did the whole…ah why not! I also applied for MI5, got to some multi-question online thing but didn’t pass. Shucks. Here’s my band though:
Anyway, back to the Olympics and my interview, it made me realise again WHERE I fail in this process. I need advice:
I’m always asked that dreaded ‘Give an example of when…’ today’s was ‘worked in a team’ or ‘solved a problem’ at work and my blankness on this question is simply because I work >> I have a problem >>> I solve it.
Interviewers appear to want you to re-call everytime you’ve solved a problem or worked with people and have a SPECIFIC EXAMPLE. Now, I know this is reasonable and part of the process but I’m amazingly rubbish at explaining when or whatever. Can anyone help/give examples/go to interviews as me with an earpiece?
