    Today’s LA Times featured an article about the unusual antics and questions that some companies are using to hire their talent.  I’ve included the list of oddball interview questions that were included as well as the top reasons applicants made poor impressions during their interviews.

     Oddball questions:

    Name five uses for a stapler, without the staples

    What is 37 times 37?

    Are you exhaling warm air?

    Room, desk or car-which do you clean first?

    How would you get an elephant into a refrigerator?

    Would Gandhi have made a good software engineer?

    What do you think of garden gnomes?

    Please spell “diverticulitis”

    How many planes are currently flying over Kansas?

    Does life fascinate you?

     

    Reason applicants made poor impressions:

    Answered cellphone during interview

    Dressed inappropriately

    Appeared uninterested

    Spoke negatively about a current or previous employer

    Chewed gun

    Didn’t provide specific answer

    Didn’t ask good questions 

    The GREAT news is that we are seeing getting busier and busier in ALL of our offices!  There are great jobs and excellent companies out there so now is the time to get serious about that career search.  We’ll be there every step of the way to guide you through the maze of questions and interviews and be your advocate to get that job!  And the most oddball question we hope to ask you is “when can you start??!!!” 

    Be sure to refer your friends, family, neighbors and anyone who wants a terrific career.  Thank you for following us on Twitter, Facebook and LIKING us!

BEST EVER APPS TO MAKE YOU MORE PRODUCTIVE!

Let’s face it, anything that can make your life easier and more productive is a welcome addition!  I’ve come to rely on several apps that I know have been great tools for me so let me share my top five with you:

DropBox– functions as an  online backup and file storage tool. You can use it to share large files and grant conference attendees access to powerpoint presentations.

Dragon Dictation – this app for your iPhone let’s you speak a memo and have it converted to text.  Sometimes it may miss a word but it’s a definite time saver.  You can then e-mail your text. 

Hello Fax – allows you to receive a document like an agreement or contract that needs edits or a signature.  You just download the document, upload to HelloFax, make your edits, add your stored signature and e-mail it back – done!

Text Expander – I use certain text often and Text Expander lets me write large copy once and then paste that copy whenever I need it with just a couple of key strokes.  A real time saver and mitigates errors in typing and re-typing.

Transmit – A file transfer tool that lets you move files around in your laptop as well as uploading and managing files via FTP to your website. 

With all the time you save, you can visit OUR website and let us help you find a great new career opportunity – or refer your friends.  We are busy and would WELCOME your call!!
