The Difference Between a Good and GREAT Job Interview


How many times have you walked out of a job interview thinking “That went well” versus “That went great!” Job interviews are tricky because even after we evaluate ourselves and the company we are pursuing, how do we know what is the best way to approach the interviewing process? Below are three tips that will benefit you in the long run when it comes to interviewing, as well as a video with tips to spare! 

Show Your Personality

Good: A good way to show your personality is to smile, express what a hard worker you are, and expand on your goals for working with the company.

Great: A GREAT way to show your personality is to make yourself unforgettable. When your interviewer asks how you are, say something that reflects your personal demeanor. “I’m great now the kids are back in school” is a more memorable than “I’m fine. Thanks. You?”. Use this tip to dive into your skills and ambitions as well. 

Know The Company

Good: You know how long the company has been standing for, you know the president, and you know the company’s mission.

Great: A GREAT way to stand out in an interview is knowing the company’s reputation. “Your company is well known for it's nationwide awards for customer service” sounds better than “Your company has an excellent reputation for the last 50 years”.

Ask Questions

Good: A good question is short, sweet, and simple to answer. It shows some interest in learning more about the position you are applying for.

Great: A GREAT question highlights your sincere interests and concerns. “What does a typical day look like for the position I’m applying for?” versus “What are some things I should know coming to work for your company?”

Overall, the goal of a job interview is to be hired. You want to walk away feeling like you’ve got the job. You also want to treat the interviewer and yourself with respect. Show who you really are; a professional and enjoyable person. Know the company's history in order to prove that you’ve done your research and that you have a genuine interest in the position you are applying for. Ask questions that help you explore the company. This way you can learn if this is a place you truly want to be.

Why Tech Entrepreneurs Should Attend College

Attending college is more than acquiring a degree in a particular field of study. It’s about becoming a part of a community so that you can begin to have new experiences, make partnerships, and learn from the people around you.
 
In the video below Nichole Pinkard, professor of computing and digital media at DePaul University, states that she is impressed that the digital software classes are in the same building as photography. 


Why is that important?


When you enter the world of computer programming, you begin to work on projects to aid or entertain people in their daily lives. There is nothing new under the sun. Many thoughts and ideas have been imagined, but not all have been executed. Even the ones that have been executed could always be improved by looking at them with a different perspective.

That’s what the college experience does for your mind. The college experience opens up a new world of inspiration. Many of us seek inspiration to finish or begin a project. On a college campus, around every corner, there is a new person with a new need to aid or a new experience to share.

College is about learning. Not just from your books, not just from your professors, but also from every other student who has a different outlook on life from your own. You’d be surprised what stories you hear from complete strangers that spark your next entrepreneurial idea.

My Entrepreneurial Journey! What I learned from my juvenile detention days.

While being in residence at a juvenile facility I witnessed so many other young black boys dealing with the same issues I struggled with. We made poor choices but those choices were based on how we lived, what we were taught, our constant family financial struggles and not knowing if we were going to eat that day. Read More
