    Default The dream job

    How would you sell yourself in your interview.

    Bearing in mind, this job is a once in a lifetime. AND you want it.

    What key words would you use?

    What would your dream job be or do you already have it?

    My dream job would be my former employment at a big 4 firm- smart people, interesting topics, fast pace- but less hours.

    I don't know, either. The interview? That's always tough, getting more used to it, but apparently still not impressive. I say stuff like "I'm a person who gets things done, you won't have to tell me twice to do it," etc. Getting paid for something makes me solidly cooperative.

    Are you confident when you go into interviews?

    Find the impressive words and tell them what they want to hear.

    It's all a game, just got to get your foot in the door.

    Money always helps. Lol.

    No, not confident going into interviews. I try to look friendly and relaxed.

    Anyway, there isn't any job I've idealized about having. There are jobs I think I'd like and some I wouldn't, but I don't have a true "dream," not for jobs.

    That would be the job of a game developer... most likely programming, but I could also be able to do designing.

    The interview? Well, I have been into one interview in my life, and it was easy. I am what I look like. Solid SJ who can deliver what is asked. I will tell them that I have a real go-getter attitude when I'm in the mood. And as a proof of that, I'm doing a game of my own (with a friend of mine). So.. I really wouldn't take any pressure on that interview, since if it fails... I can always make my own games.

    For my dream job, my skills would be so good that I would be asked to do it rather than partecipate in an interview.
