Tip #5 for senior interviews - Be ready for “behavior-based” interviews. One of the most common interview styles today is to ask people to describe experiences they have had that demonstrate behaviors that the company thinks are important for a particular position. You might be asked to talk about a time when you made an unpopular decision, displayed a high level of persistence, or made a decision under time pressure and with limited information for example.

Step 1 is to anticipate the behaviors this hiring manager is likely to be looking for. Step 2 is to identify at least one example of when you demonstrated each behavior. Step 3 is to prepare a story for each example. Step 4 is to practice telling the story. Also, make sure to review your resume before the interview with this kind of format in mind; this can help you to remember examples of behaviors you may not have anticipated in advance.

Tip #4 for senior interviews - Be assertive and take responsibility for the interview. Perhaps out of the effort to be polite, some usually assertive candidates become overly passive during job interviews. But politeness doesn’t equal passivity. An interview is like any other conversation - it’s a dance in which you and a partner move together, both responding to the other. Don’t make the mistake of just sitting there waiting for the interviewer to ask about that Nobel Prize you won. It’s your responsibility to make sure he walks away knowing your key selling points.

Any HSB Student that has not turned in cookie forms must do it by the end of Activity Period today.


Tip #3 for senior interviews- Make your selling points clear. If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, did it make a sound? More important, if you communicate your selling points during a job interview and the interviewer doesn’t get it, did you score? On this question, the answer is clear: No! So don’t bury your selling points in long-winded stories. Instead, tell the interviewer what your selling point is first, then give the example.

Congratulations to the sophomores who did a great job with their detergent fundraiser. We appreciate everyone who contributed or donated. Tayden Pingle was the top seller and 2nd place goes to Landyn Dotson. Ninth period English class sold the most items! Thanks everyone!

The following students should report to the Guidance Office today during activity period: Madisyn Ditto, Hannah Hines, and Aneesa Langhals.

All seniors will be participating in Senior Mock Interviews on Friday, December 13th. To help prepare a little better for this, we will be having a daily interview tip leading up to this day.

Tip #2 - Think positive. No one likes a complainer, so don’t dwell on negative experiences during an interview. Even if the interviewer asks you point blank, “What courses have you liked least?” or “What did you like least about that previous job?” don’t answer the question. Or more specifically, don’t answer it as it’s been asked. Instead, say something like, “Well, actually I’ve found something about all of my classes that I’ve liked. For example, although I found math to be very tough, I liked the fact that I was being pushed academically” or “I liked a previous job quite a bit, although now I know that I really want this new position.”

The following juniors need to come to the guidance office today during their study hall to finalize job shadow forms. Reagan Clymer, Sara Dipnarine, Blaine Hoffman, Trinity Kopenhaver, Aneesa Langhals, Emily Schumacher, and Grace Selhorst.

All seniors will be participating in Senior Mock Interviews on Friday, December 13th. To help prepare a little better for this, we will be having a daily interview tip leading up to this day.

Tip #1 - Score a success in the first five minutes. Some studies indicate that interviewers make up their minds about candidates in the first five minutes of the interview- and then spend the rest of the interview looking for things to confirm that decision! So what can you do in those five minutes to get through the gate? Come in with energy and enthusiasm, and express your appreciation for the interviewer’s time. (Remember, she may be seeing many other candidates that day.)

Also, start with a positive comment about the company- something like, “I’ve really been looking forward to this meeting [not “interview”]. OR “I think Columbus Grove High School is doing great work in leading students towards volunteerism, and I’m really excited by the prospect of being able to contribute.”
