About a PHONE INTERVIEW ============? Topic: How to write a good interview question
July 24, 2019 / By Trinity
Question: I have a phone interview for an unpaid internship in a couple days. It's over the phone because I'm presently in another city. I was told that the interview will probably be about an hour. How many questions do you think I will be asked?? I already have answers written out for the common interview questions. If you had an experience with phone interviews, can you tell me what to expect? I really appreciate it. ========================= So how many questions do you think I will be asked? An hour seems like a pretty long time...

An hour before the interview turn off all radios, TV’s, and telephones except the one you will be using. Organize your notes into “questions they might ask me”, and “questions I might ask them”. Have those documents with your resume in front of you for easy reference. Dress the part (dress for success). Do not chew gum. Sit at a desk or in a chair. Think happy thoughts- get a positive attitude going and a smile on your face. Do not lay in bed in your jammies munching potato chips thinking it is OK because they can’t see you. Your attitude usually will come off pretty clearly over the telephone. Good Luck! Same questions as a regular interview. I was nervous, too- Its a standard pre interview. Just take it seriously as a face to face & be as prepared.

As you have no practical experience within your job role, it would prove too expensive to employ someone requiring sponsorship and visa's - You would have to show exceptional skills, qualification and past experience in the job role for a company to sponsor you. In any applications or covering letters you should express that you are not a US Citizen and may require a Visa Sponsorship, if you don't you will be getting interview appointments that will do nothing but give you false hope.

nobody want fresh grads ,, they can get those in America .. they want highly experienced Pick a visa There are basically NINE ways that you can get a visa to live and work in the US: (1) Marriage (or engagement in anticipation of marriage) to a US citizen. (2) You have skills that are in short supply in the US e.g. scientific or medical training. A degree is normally a must. Or you have superior specialist skills with at least 12 years experience. (H visas)applications next received on 1st April 2014 (3) You have an Employer who is willing to transfer you - but even the employer has to make a good case for you - so you have to be a manager unless you fall under category (2) above.(L visas) (4) You may get a Green card in the diversity lottery (UK citizens, except N.Ireland, are not generally eligible unless you, your spouse or parents were born abroad or held a different citizenship. (5)You own or buy business (does not get you permanent resident status i.e. no green card)You must be a national of a qualifying Treaty countries. The business must have a minimum value of around $150k (more the better) bearing in mind you will need somewhere to live and with any startup business you will need at least 2 years living money as back up. So a figure of $350k would be a nearer minimum (E-2 visas) (6)You are an "investor" i.e. you have at least US $1m in assets to bring with you. half of that in a few areas. And your background will be investigated to the hilt. (EB-5 visas) (7)You have a close relative (mother, father, brother, sister and no further) who is an US citizen who would sponsor you, approx time this take 2-12 years? (8.The R1 visa is available to foreign members of religious denominations, having bona fide non-profit religious organizations in the U.S., for entering the U.S. to carry on the activities of a minister or religious worker as a profession, occupation or vocation (9)THE UNUSUAL You are in a position to claim refugee status/political asylum. or You get a member of Congress to sponsor a private bill with legislation that applies just to you. The S visa issued to persons who assist US law enforcement to investigate and prosecute crimes and terrorist activities such as money laundering and organized crime Recruitment agent will not take you seriously if you are not already in the US. Writing for jobs is really a waste of time; likewise US employers have no idea what foreign qualification are or mean (except Degrees) it may pay you to get your qualification translated into a US equivalent, there are Companies that do this (www.wes.org) .. But if you are getting a visa under (2) above then you need a job offer before you can get the visa. Your Employer will be your sponsor this will cost them upward of $5k. So you can see you have to be offering something really special to get considered They may also have to prove to the Dept of labor that there is no American who can do the job if the position is to be permanent © DO NOT USE VISA CONSULTANTS

It cost money for employers to sponsor a work visa................... so why would they appoint a new graduate who has nothing additional to offer than an American new graduate who doesn't require the employer to pay out money in sponsoring a visa It is about economic reality, you as an employee don't make economic sense

You just have to tell them straight up. Many will not hire you if they need to sponsor you and pay for the move.

Sally Originally Answered: JPL Phone Interview! Please help?
There are two documents you need to consider carefully: the person specification and your completed application form. Regardless of the exact style of interview these are what any questions will be based on. There are also two distinct forms of interview process. The first is a fairly open format where the interviewer looks through those documents and asks about anything that catches their eye. You need to be able to expand on anything you have written or is in the person specification. Having been on a few interviews panels myself my attention is always drawn to things that are not verifiable. If you say "I've passed the exam for XYZ" we can instantly check that by asking for certificates. If on the other hand you say "I understand so and so to approximately XYZ standard" that is less easy to verify. I'm always drawn to asking questions based on those kind of statements, even if we didn't ask for XYZ in the first place. I'll ask a question that you would need to know instantly to pass that exam if you were to take it: if you can't your stock goes through the floor since we can't trust what you have said, and it would have been better never to have said that in the first place. The second form of interview is more structured and the type usually favoured by government agencies, so it is the form I would expect JPL to use. It is generally known as a competency-based interview. That relies exclusively on the key skill areas presented in the person specification. The specific skills needed are usually arranged in to a small number of distinct categories or themes and a question will usually be of the form "Tell me about a time when you..." You then need to determine which category they are asking about. They are generally looking for specific examples rather than abstract statements. Thinking up those examples right away can be tricky so it pays to look through the spec in advance and plan what example you would give to any category. Don't overlook the "soft" skills since a question on managing conflicts or disputes for example is as likely to come up as anything else. Again things that are verifiable are always to be preferred (for example, if a referee can confirm it, or you can show them something you have made) but much of the time they will appreciate that is not always possible. Finally, it pays to show an interest. If they explain about working for them during the interview, ask about anything that occurs to you - it shows you are paying attention and showing an interest. Similarly try to have a question for the "Do you have any questions for us?" bit that is always at the end of the interview. Asking about when you might hear about their decision, or for an internship how many interns go on to full time employment with them, are good generic questions if nothing else arises.
