‘Past Performance Predicts The Future Performance’ In Interviews

by Dov Waxman

The past performance of candidates will predict the future in the interviewing process. By knowing the past performance of a candidate, the interviewer can assess the future behavior of the candidate in different situations.

In the interviewing process, the interviewer should check the person’s past performance by focusing on candidate past experience, behavior, attitude, and capacities in different situations. By asking different type of questions the interviewer can assess the candidate past performance. When evaluating the answers, interviewer should look at the correct answers as well as candidate’s attitude expressed by the answers. By asking such type of questions, interviewer should know how the person can handle different situations in the future. And the interviewer could assess the candidate’s performance in similar situations in the past.

Asking those behaviors based questions with examples, interviewer can easily identify that the candidate is giving fake answers or right answers. Knowing about the past performance in different situations, the interviewer can easily assess the candidate behavior in future, how the person will reacts, if the same situation happens in the future. In the hiring process behavioral interviewing technique plays major role in assessing the candidate past performance.

Translation Jobs Are In Demand

by Andrew Veazey

Translation jobs are in demand right now because of several reasons. Two of these reasons are: the need to tap highly competent translators from other countries and the necessity of outsourcing translation jobs so that business outsourcing groups will have more time to do things that are more important and pressing. Translation jobs have been considerably extended in view of the great number of countries where translators are outsourced from. Translation is challenging and enjoyable especially to people who find these interesting and financially and professionally rewarding.

In doing translation, a Norwegian translator has to have the necessary tools like computer and dictionaries to get started. These tools are more like requirements to any translator. Persons engaged in translation jobs also have to designate considerable periods of each day because this kind of work also has pressures caused by deadlines and stringent standards. Persons doing translation also have to designate a specific workstation. Translation jobs are truly professionally and financially rewarding jobs that can bring you lots of enjoyment.

Translation jobs are by far the most simple and easy-to-do jobs available online. All you need to do is to translate data from English to some other language or vice versa. So if you know that “other language”, you can do the job easily.

A1Cothern’s Advice to Those Who Lost Job in Financial Sector

by Andrew Veazey

A1 Cothern, Franchise Owner at FASTSIGNS spent 11 years working for a national subprime mortgage lender as a senior vice president and had visions of some day becoming an executive vice president before retiring from the world of finance. Unfortunately this week, Al Cothern watched as laid-off workers streamed out of Lehman Brothers’ headquarters in midtown Manhattan with boxes in hand. He was laid off from his job a year ago.

Cothern Said…

“I was worried when I lost my job, but I saw it as an opportunity to make a change and get away from the things that were bothering me throughout my career, mainly the ups and downs of the markets,” he explained.

Here’s Cothern’s advice to those of you who have just lost a job in the financial industry:

“Immediately cut back on expenses,” he advises, adding that he sold his boat and got rid of extras like satellite radio after he was handed a pink slip.

Cothern also suggests that people figure out fast if there really are other opportunities in finance, and if not, look for something new.

“I have associates who after a year are still trying to replace that $200,000 salary and a corner office,” he explained. “You just have to open and broaden your horizons.”
