Thank goodness for the internet interview training

Thank goodness for the internet! I honestly wouldn’t know what to do with myself if it weren’t for the internet. I would probably be uneducated, unemployed, and most likely homeless. Not to mention I would probably have fewer methods to communicate with my family and friends AND I wouldn’t have pinterest to keep me occupied when I’m bored at work.

If I were to win an award it would go something like this “I would like to thank my family and friends for this award, most importantly Le Internet for giving me the chance to get the job I love.” Then, naturally there would be a grand applause and so on and so forth. Unfortunately, I must return to the real world. At any rate, if it weren’t for the internet I would never have heard of nor applied to my dream job.

Alright, I’ll be honest: the application process for this job absolutely sucked but it all balances out now. The worst part about this application process was the abundance of employee assessment tests. Some of them were on my personality and others on work ethic. It was all bleh in the end. Then, right when I was about to give up, I saw the light at the end of the application-tunnel: it was the interview training system. That’s right! I passed all of the assessment tests and they gave me access to the interview process. After a steady three interviews (after the interview training of course) they offered me the job! It was a very long and drawn out process but it was well worth the wait!

Employee assessments help organizations better understand their employees.

People come from all walks of life and as a result expect different things out of their jobs.  I had a drink with a friend last night and she told me about a friend of her’s that was only interested in having a job to get paid.  The person said that it did not matter what kind of job he had because it was his family that he found all of his life in.  As a result, he reasoned that he could do any job, so long as he could go home to his wife and kids at the end of the day.  I consider this to be somewhat naive.  I think that he could be very unhappy at his job and this would undoubtedly be carried over to his personal life.  There are people like this out there and I think that organizations would want to avoid hiring them.  One way an organization could weed out these people is through employee assessment tests.  These tests help organization gain a better understanding of what their current employees want out of their jobs and what prospective employees are like as people and professionals.  I would definitely avoid hiring someone like my friend’s friend because I would want someone that is committed to the organization and the work that it does.  As a result, I would send out an employee assessment to all prospective employees in an attempt to find out more about who they are as people and who they could be as employees.
