You’re in line for a great job, but the interview isn’t going well. The
questions you are being asked are not only making you uncomfortable but
many of them are illegal. There is a way to handle these types of
situations, says employment expert Aaron Boyce of the Sacramento Stride
Center, a non-profit educational organization that provides computer
training and business development to primarily low income people.
Many soon-to-be graduates with advanced degrees from well-respected
institutions across the country are finding it harder than expected securing employment as the
anemic economy continues to struggle with the adverse after effects of
the Great Recession and a persistently soft job market—characterized by
economists as a market in which there’s an oversupply of workers at a
time of limited demand by employers.
Are you able to see the big picture while monitoring small details? Do
you have the ability to work with a team yet feel comfortable spending
time alone going over schedules and budgets? Can you assume a leadership
role and build consensus among different people with varying needs and
agendas? Do you thrive in a deadline-driven environment? If your answer is yes to the above, then perhaps a career in project management is for you.
