I left my last two jobs, each with a tenure of under six months, due to differences with my boss and a co-worker. Both blame everyone else when they don't get their work done. To avoid coming across as a difficult construction executive or not a team player, what should I tell prospective construction employers at an interview as to why I left these positions?
Why do job interviewers ask what you read, and what's the right answer?
I realize that the job-applicant process has been automated by many, maybe most, construction employers of midsize and up. One of the things I'm not sure about is whether comments made by the original interviewers get passed on in the automated systems. That is, if you have a series of interviews at a construction employer, do subsequent interviewers get to see what the first interviewer said?
Is it appropriate to wear the same black suit to a second interview with the same construction employer?
Because of personal reasons, I was not at my best during a job interview and was turned down for a position that I wanted very badly. What are my chances of getting a second interview and what is the best way to ask?
At a recent job interview, I was interviewed by a group of individuals who were involved in the hiring process and final decision. In the middle of my interview, one of the individuals got up and left the interview ? with no warning or explanation offered. This made me feel very awkward, and left me with a bad taste in my mouth toward the construction employer. Am I overreacting?
Should I tell a potential construction employer about my criminal history from 7 years ago before they conduct a background check?
I recently interviewed with a construction employer and as I was pulling out of the parking lot I saw a manager from another dept in my construction employer. I am not sure why she was there but when I see her in the office, there is a bit of tension and a very uncomfortable feeling.
What is the correct way to answer the question? "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?" This is one of the tough questions interviewers like to ask applicants. The best way is to avoid saying (for example) 'I want to be an account manager.' The title Account Management means different things depending on the construction employer. Instead, think about what types of skills you'd like to be using. Would you like to manage a team? Work independently? Use your organizational skills? Think of these types of things to include in your answer.
