During the spring preceding her graduation. She went out on many jobs interviews, most of which she thought were conducted courteously and were reasonably useful in giving both her and prospective employer a good impression of where each of them stood on matters of importance to both of them. It was, therefore, with great anticipation that she looked for an interview with the one firm in which she most wanted to work: apex environmental. Where she thought she could have a successful career while making the world better place. PowerPoint Presentation: The interview, however, was a disaster. Maria walked into a room in which five men began throwing question at her that she felt were aimed primarily at tripping her up rather than finding out what she could offer through her engineering skills. The questions ranged from unnecessarily discourteous , (“Why would you take a job as a waitress in college if you are such an intelligent person ?”) (“Are you planning on settling down and starting a family anytime soon ?”) Then , after the interview, she met with of the gentlemen individually (including the president) and the discussion focused almost exclusively on her technical expertise. She thought that these later discussion went fairly well. However, given the apparent aimlessness and even mean-spiritedness of the panel interview, she was astonished when several days later she got a job offer from the firm. PowerPoint Presentation: The offer forced her to consider several matters. From her point of view, the job itself was perfect-she liked what she would be doing, the industry, and the firm’s location. And in fact, the president had been quite courteous in subsequent discussions, as had been the other members of the management team. She was left wondering whether the panel interview had been intentionally tense to see how she’d stand up under pressure, and. If so, why they would do such a thing. Question 1:: Question 1: Q . How would you explain the nature of the panel interview Maria had to endure?

The question ranged from unnecessarily discourteous to irrelevant and sexist such NO!.according to are group it is not carelessness on the part of the firm’s management because through this kind of interview or unnecessarily discourteous question firm can easily identify how can candidate would stand up under pressure or stressful situation. Question 2:: Would you take the job offer if you were Maria? If you’re not sure, is there any additional information that would help you make your decisions, and if so, what is it? Question 2: Answer:: Answer: If I was Maria I would definitely take the job offer. This is because from the very past .I was willing to take a job which can evaluate my working ability also where, I can implement my working on technical ability. So if my interview was not good enough, I would definitely be disappoint. But later when by a discussion the president knows my ability and technical skills it would help me to get the job. And after getting the job offer I would definitely take the job. PowerPoint Presentation: If a scenario arises that I am not sure whether I would take the job or not, then to make myself sure I need some more additional information. This information can be as follows ; PowerPoint Presentation: Are there any securities of my employment? Is my job future is pessimistic? Is there any lack of insurance and pension benefits? Is there any chance to be underemployed? Is the working environment is suitable for the job? Where the firm is located and what it is supposed to be my job? Are the people of the firm behaving in a courteous and friendly manner?
