This recording is to demonstrate how to interview. Some of these stories are going to be silly but I hope it'll convey the message. As per the Career Unleashed theme we had a horse, a cow, pig, a car and a dragon. Today we are gonna talk to the horse. We are going to interview different horses to see how they would interview if they had to get a job at a delivery company. The job is to deliver packages from point A to point B. Let's talk to horse A. Hello there! Thank you so much for showing interest in our job. Could you give me some of the highlights of what makes you fit for our role? Horse A - Well according to double trailers we have some unique characteristics. Did you know that we have the largest eyes of any land mammal? Did you know that we can run within hours of birth? When we laugh or we look like laughing we are not really laughing but we are just smelling!! Interviewer - Well hold on there, those are very unique points but what I want to talk about is. how are you a fit candidate to deliver our package from point A to point B? Horse A - Oh yes yes!! that's right Well according to double trailers we can run quite fast at an average of 27 miles per hour, some of us can run to 55 miles an hour Interviewer - that's very good to know. How fast can you run? I have never measured my speed but I think I run fast I think I can get your job done! Interviewer - Well thank you so much for your time we will get back in touch with you Horse B! Interviewer - Well thank you so much for coming in. Can you introduce yourself or tell us How you would be a good fit for this job? Horse B - Absolutely! let me give you an example in my previous job there was a big problem for my owner the owner was a king and he had to go across different forests to visit the Queen. It was a treacherous journey. He chose me because I had proven that I could run fast I could go across different forests, I could cross rivers, I had done it all before so I took the king a job that usually takes a horse maybe two days took me one day because I can run at 55 miles per hour and I know this because on previous jobs I had done, I had kept a tab on how fast my speed was and how fast I could run and deliver and I did all of this keeping the King safe and getting him to the Queen on time the result King was happy Queen was happy and I got a lot of food to eat. I think I can deliver your packages. End of interview Who do you think will get the job? So whenever we interview if we just keep talking about maybe the skills we have or what we are known for or what program managers are known for or project managers are known for it doesn't come across genuine just like the first horse they were just talking about the characteristics doesn't help. The second horse went into a story told th em the problem the solution and the result. Which one do you think will be more effective? I want you to apply the same idea to your profile and tell me a problem-solution result that differentiated you from all the rest Thank you. Don't forget to Subscribe to www.careerunleashed.com
