Moo.

HELLO FROM REHAB!!!!   Not sure if anything's been shared but Sunday dinner at my parents' a couple weeks ago was in fact an elaborate ruse to stage an intervention.  Actually it wasn't very

Everybody take a minute tonight (or today) to raise a glass to HeckDad.  My sister just called to tell me that he passed away at home.  Don't have details other than he fell, but he was 94 with a bad

I thought you were retiring?

My company considers me retired (5 years experience & 55 years old), but not the Govt. I still have 10 years left according to their standards

So in the email I got from the head hunter, they want me to prepare 3+ professional questions. These should be about the company, structure, day to day responsibilities, etc (not about pay or benefits)

This is only my second interview in 18 years...... What do I ask?

This is only my second interview in 18 years...... What do I ask?

When I did my last interview, I researched as much as I could on the company. I then tailored my questions towards things that only one who did such research would know enough to ask about.

E.g. "I see you have established footholds in (these five countries), and your market share for each is: a, b, c, d and f. What are your goals and strategies on this? How can I best maintain or expand on this? I see many possible strategies, but I want to be in line with your goals and methods. Where can I learn more on this?"

Now, that may not be the right question for your position, but it's something along the lines that I used.

 

Good luck Mr. Pack. :thumbup:

My last employer rejected my attempts to institute Thong Thursdays, and I never felt free to be myself in all that clothing.  What's your casual day policy?

I always like to find out their sexual harrassment and drug screening policies up front.

:goodposting:  This is key.  Going after a job in telecom myself.  Should be talking to recruiter this afternoon.  17-20% raise if I get it.  It would be nice to get out of consulting all together.

Oh, one other thing:

Try to make all of your questions about how you can help them...not about how their structure may impact you.

I like this, Thanks!

Your welcome. :)

 

Also, I want to clarify my quote above. I am only referring to the 3 formal questions you are being asked to initially provide. Once I got past that part of the process, I tried to keep most of my questioned angled as above, but I eventually asked the questions about how things may impact me. Those questions were very important to me. But, I tried my best to display that my primary concern was to help, and my secondary concern was my own interests. 

You probably already knew that, but I didn't wanna come off as a rube that was not willing to ask about anything that might turn me off regarding the company. :doh:

Don’t look elsewhere for this. You really need to think about what you would want to know about the job, its challenges, their expectations, etc.   The headhunter shouldn’t need to prompt you for this.

Better question is why were you in the hotel bar in Austin.

I don’t live in Austin.  When I travel there, I stay in a hotel.

But there is a thing called Uber that takes you wherever you would like to go. I use it all the time so I am not drinking in crappy hotel bars but awesome places, which are plentiful in Austin.

The ability to just walk to an elevator, go up, and go to your room is an underrated feature of hotel bars.

I like this a lot.  I fondly remember going to a conference in Daytona a couple of years ago.  Hotel had a great steakhouse in the lobby and it just so happened that night there were wine vendors dining at the bar with me.  So glad it was a short walk because those guys like to drink.

You know what else is plentiful in Austin? GMTANers who would buy drinks for shuke.

A low income version of this is the apartment on top of a bar with a separate entrance.

Absolutely, but he doesn't have time for GMTAN, though I think he would be welcome here. Joffer and a few others live here too.

The point is, shuke's money is virtually no good here, but he's in a hotel bar, alone.

We must really be jackholes. :lmao:

And cos, and bentley, and occasionally bAbe.

Last time I was in Austin it was for a conference so I couldn't get away for a drink. Hoping I get sent back down there soon for actual work, then I have time every night.

If you sing this to the tune of David Bowie's "Heroes" it doesn't sound so self-loathing.

Okay but then Is this why you were being rude to your wife during the soccer game?  That she had a problem with you being preoccupied with the fence guy's wife? :)

Couldn't talk the wife into Shell Beach, but we'll be heading just south of there ourselves.  Hoping to recruit Tanner to join us wine tasting.
