Transitioning Military Officers: Interview Example

Recently, I conducted a practice interview a military officer preparing to transition into the civilian workforce.

As with most interviews, the first question I asked was “Tell Me About Yourself.”  Many interviews start with this and it’s a question many job seekers find challenging.  Listen to this individual’s answer and assess it for the following:

  • Did the individual answer the question asked?
  • Was the answer clear and easy to follow?
  • Was the answer concise?
  • Was the content appropriate, too detailed or not detailed enough?
  • Did the answer create a professional image?
  • What do you think the individual should have done differently?

Listen to the Answer

Tomorrow’s posting will have my assessment of job seeker’s answer.
