Brian Lynch demonstrates a positive attitude.
Brian is being interviewed for a position as warehouse supervisor for a sweet manufacturer. These questions were asked.
Talk me through your career to date with British Coal.
This required Brian to be familiar with the various positions he had held. For example, his answer included: ' ... Having spent five years in that job, I was then promoted to supervisor.'
Brian, you spent 25 years with British Coal. Why did you leave?
As Brian's colliery was closed, he needs to answer this question positively and briefly.
'Well, my position was made redundant due to the closure of the colliery.'
Notice that Brian refers to the position being made redundant not him.
Your CV states you were awarded a Deputy's Certificate. What is this and what was involved in the training?
Brian needs to communicate in jargon-free language what this course was about and to emphasise what is relevant to the position applied for. For example, '... I successfully completed a Supervisor's course related to health and safety and management skills.
I notice from your hobbies and interest that you have an interest in computers. Tell me more about this.
Brian has only recently developed an interest in computers since he bought his son one. He hardly considers himself competent at stage: ' ... Well, as my son wanted one for his school work, I decided
it was about time I learnt about them. I'm still a beginner, but I seem to be learning new things every day.'
Brian did not use computers in his day to day work previously but he will be required to use them if he gets the job of warehouse supervisor. The interviewer's main concerns about Brian's lack of
computer experience have been alleviated to a degree because of his expressed interest. He has demonstrated a positive attitude and his ability to learn new skills quickly with the phrase.....I seem to be learning new things every day.
