Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
1. Discuss a time you were on an interview. Explain what happened. What do you consider the most successful or unsuccessful part of the interview? Could you have done anything differently?
I remember applying to a job at a certain company. My experience with that interview was mixed. I had gotten there a bit late, and i was really nervous. In the end i didn't get hired but i did pick on a few key details and other bits that helped me out later on. I consider the worst part of my interview, the beginning. It's the most tense part. Especially if you are not used to interviews or it is one of your first ones. I felt really nervous. I wish i was early, so i could have been comfortable before walking into the interview room. It would have given me a chance to calm my nerves, and prepare myself for the interview. I look back on it, and there is a lot i could have done, and a lot of things i wish i hadn't. But the interview made me stronger as an individual.
2. During an interview, what are some valid questions that are acceptable to ask the interviewer? Is it appropriate to bring up salary when you have not been hired yet?
From what i picked up, you want to ask about the job. Things like the office and the location and services or opportunities they offer. One of the worst mistakes is to deny their offer when they ask: "Do you have any questions for us?". You want to engage with them, and show them you aren't just someone who wants the job for the pay, but that you are here to be part of their family. Some valid questions are, how are the other employees, how well does the company handle it's employees. Who will be your manager, things like that are really important to ask. Mentioning the salary when you haven't been hired is a bit risky. If you feel confident that you are going to get the job, i would say to gently, nudge the question. Play around, don't directly mention salary or pay. Ask about the benefits, the average earnings of the company, how much they spend on employees, how many employees they have. With this information you can calculate it yourself. But it can't hurt to ask. One of my friends once landed a job for being so direct. Some times, boldness counts.
