  • Interview tomorrow!

    With some company called Telogis. They make truck fleet management software... stuff like optimizing truck routes, gathering info like idling time, average speed, etc. for big companies like AT&T that have giant fleets of trucks. I met the company at a career fair here on campus and all of a sudden they e-mailed me and asked to interview.

    Only downside is that it's at 8:30 am (that's early for us college folks) tomorrow with a 2 hour programming test Makes me kinda nervous but I'll take it

      Best of luck to you! You'll do fine!

      I really hope to get a similar job in the next year or so... but it's taking so long to get through the programming classes, etc. Hope to find something.

      Anyway... Congrats in advance!

          Good luck Hoser!!! Think over what questions they might ask (check over the requirements of the job, and imagine a question or two on anything mentioned in the posting), and prepare an answer for each if possible. This includes the practical stuff as well as the competences (such as initiative, problem solving, leadership, planning and organizing, teamwork....try to have an example of each....and make them all positive outcomes. They may ask for an example of each type of competency they are high on.....as in, "tell us about an idea you came up with recently and what you did to make it happen?").

          I'd do all you can to prepare, and then stop well before bed time....that way the osmosis takes over and does not get messed up with too much cramming late into the process.

          Also, this may be obvious, but be able to sell yourself, including why you are right for the job, your work and non work history that are important requirements for the position, and make you the right person for the job, and so on. Be direct, and be straight up without be boastful. And look them in the eyes. And a little passion never hurts....

          And take one question at a time....if one doesn't go as well as you hoped, just move on and start the next one fresh. You can add on later if you think of a better answer. Be like Jack Nicklaus....if he bogeyed a whole, he'd tee up the next one, not even thinking for a second about the bogey.

          You can do it!!!

            I guess I shoulda mentioned this isn't really for a job job, but rather an internship. So if I get it it'll still be like.... 8 months till I start working there

            Still though, kinda nervous about that programming test. And thanks for the good advice Can :thumb: I'd CP you but I've gotta spread it.

              ya i know and im not complaining because im still finishing up my final college internship and all but parks and recreation is hard to find, at least i havent been unemployed for 5+ months like some were saying so im thankful

              there are jsut SOOOOO many park districts/gov agencies/fitness centers that its just incredibly time consuming looking through them all only to usually end with the same outcome of "no available positions"

              i should hear back next week about this first interview (said 7-10 days) but its not in my field at all which kinda sucks

                Internship is part of the process........it's all good!

                Now start putting on that "I'm the right person for this internship" face!!!!

                      I hope all goes well.......and sometimes we have to bite the bullet and go off the track a bit to get to where we want to be. By staying active and productive, you can keep busy, and you can still get to where you want to go. Interestingly, sometimes really good things happen when you are "off the track" so to speak. You may like the work, or meet some great people, or get some new connections who accelerate your career plan.

                      Take it all in!:thumb:

                        Hoser, it's yours.

                        Tell them I said so.

                        You'll do great.


                        SBboundBRONCOS, hope you get it.




                        Anyone want to relocate? Saw on the news, a state in the midwest (?) has like 3,000+ job openings. Blue color/factory-type jobs. They don't have enough people to fill them.

                          I read somewhere that your buds up north (us Canadians) may be looking to hire Americans in certain locales/fields. If so, you should think about it.....good quality of life, friendly people, and lots of great scenery (not just talking mountains, lakes, and that kind of stuff!!!). There are a lot of Americans who've made their home here, just as we made homes in the US....we're very similar people! We tend to start eating Turkey a little sooner.....so we celebrate Thanksgiving earlier.....but we also tend to celebrate your Thanksgiving as well, and pretty much any holiday anywhere!!!!
