 Have you read the checklist on our website for the Top 50 Interview Questions? It is a must if you are preparing for interviews.

After having been in recruitment and HR for many years and interviewing hundreds of people for hundreds of roles, we have a pretty good understanding of what questions elicit the best responses.

A good interviewer should ask you behaoural questions, which require you to use the STAR model response – that is talk about the Situation, Task, Action and Result.

For example if asked how you deal with difficult customers, your best answer would be within the region of … “When I worked at XYZ company, I had a situation where …and so what I did was… Because I did that ….”

The most powerful thing that you can do at interview is give solid examples – like “when I worked at …” and “ I had to” etc.

Talking to children about terrorism

close

The recent terrorist attacks in London following on from the recent events in Manchester, where children and young people were among the victims, has spread shockwaves across the globe. With media coverage reaching saturation levels it’s difficult to shield children from these events. The task for parents is to reassure children, while to trying to explain events that for most of us are inexplicable.

While most parents quiet naturally don’t want to discuss terrorism with children, it’s not a topic that you should avoid, particularly if your children ask pertinent questions.

Here are some ideas that will help:

1. Discuss age-appropriately

The Australian Psychological Society recommends, “It’s best to shield pre-schoolers completely from frightening or traumatic world events.” This means protecting young children from media coverage and being mindful of adult conversations around young children. However even young children overhear conversations and know is happening, so be prepared to discuss events in ways that they understand.

Primary school-aged children have more exposure through the media and the schoolyard. However children can easily misinterpret events so be prepared to clarify misconceptions and open the way for conversations.
