7 QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK AT THE END OF EVERY JOB INTERVIEW.

Click here to find out why these questions help you.

This is so important!

I never know what to ask and end up looking like a fool cause I don’t have a question prepared.

Don’t be me.

As someone who has interviewed and hired people, I’m going to say that that last question “Do you have any hesitations about my qualifications,” is actually a terrible idea.

1.) Often, I don’t even think of them until right before my meeting with the hiring committee. You definitely don’t want me talking about why I wouldn’t hire you to be one of the last and therefore most memorable parts of your interview.

2.) What if you have no way of laying my hesitations to rest? What if I say “I’m unsure about hiring someone who hasn’t developed the network connections necessary to succeed in this field?” And then what if you don’t have a good answer, and you just look at me. Or you give me a bad answer?

3.) You should know the position, the company, and yourself enough to foresee my hesitations and talk about them in the interview. Like when I ask what you think you can do for our organization/company/whatever, your answer should include “… and I know that I don’t have the same networking connections that other applicants might have, but I have a very outgoing and friendly attitude and I’m willing to attend every board meeting, and to reach out and make appointments to introduce myself to the big players in the game like soandso and blahblah until I’ve built up my network.”

Not really into how many compliments I’m getting from the Fellows on my outfit. I really like this new hat I got, so I’m a little more butch than usual, and I’m disconcerted with this microaggression of praising me for looking more masculine than usual.

Is it a fedora?

It’s a billed cap that says “#nguyening”

i read somewhere once that straight people can’t cross over running water? someone from the science side of tmblr confirm?

FALSE. 

This is a common misconception. Though crossing over running water causes straight people extreme pain and discomfort, they can do it if the situation is dire (i.e. there are sports on the other side of the water)

This is why you should always fortify you moat with a circle of salt and a good sturdy hedge.

Remember when Olympia’s white gay men got together and decided I was a terrifying, raging, cisphobic, reverse racist misandrist? And I wasn’t invited to their parties anymore?

Creating a staff accountability process in the fellowship because folks think I’m a reverse racist or something.
