Weekly IQ: Can you tell me about yourself?

Posted by Walrath Recruiting, Inc. on May 25, 2016 in For Job Seekers, Work and Life |

Question of the Week     While job hunting can be very exciting, looking at companies and wondering what the workplace might be like, there is one part of the process that is always stressful: interviews. Waiting to hear back after sending in a resume can be tough for the inpatient, but the worst case scenario is that your experience did not measure up to what they expected, so you just move on and continue applying. However, in an interview, you have made it through the first stage and now are wholly responsible for whether or not you are offered a job. In this blog series, we will be tackling a new interview question every week, and how to approach it when you are in the hot seat. While your mileage with similar answers will vary since every interview is unique, thinking ahead and having a mindset of how to respond can go a long way. Read more…

How to Evaluate Personality and Company Culture Before Accepting A Job

Posted by Walrath Recruiting, Inc. on March 31, 2016 in Capital Region, For Job Seekers, Staffing & Recruiting, Work and Life |

Fitting Culture and Personality Together

Why do you need to evaluate your personality and company culture before taking a job? The positions you work in need to play to your skills and strengths as an employee as well as be something you have interest in and are passionate about. One thing that is often left out of the equation, in hopes that we can ‘make it work’ in order to move forward, is personality. This happens all too often; people attempt to conform to the environment they are in and end up unhappy as a result. Conformity is somewhat expected, as we do need to be flexible in life (we cannot always have everything we want) but, it does not have to come down to changing your personality completely in order to work.

Career Accomplishments

As we progress throughout our career, we will ideally gain valuable experience that can be beneficial to other potential employers or to those within our current place of employment. As we work; we will encounter various challenges, projects, tasks, etc. that result in quantitative and/or qualitative results.

How to answer “Where do you see yourself in 5 years?”

Posted by Walrath Recruiting, Inc. on March 24, 2016 in Capital Region, For Job Seekers, Staffing & Recruiting, Work and Life |

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

You are on an interview for a new job, it seems to be going well so far and then you are asked the question, “Where do you see yourself in 5 years?” It was bound to come up at some point, as it is a pretty commonly asked question after all, but it is often difficult for people to answer. The problem is you do not know where you will be in 5 years; anything can happen during that time and the course of your life may change entirely, but that is okay. The interviewer is not looking for a specific answer that describes some far reaching goal. The purpose of this question is to gain insight into what you want out of the job and where your professional interests lie, in order to help them decide if you are a good fit or not. Read more…
