One of my colleague told me yesterday:" Do you know Mike? I have heard that he didn't pass the interview and he has lost his chance of full time associate forever." " Really?" I asked "Too bad for him. What does he gona do?" "He has to start to hunt another job."
I still remember the very interview two weeks ago. A few questions have probably stayed in my mind forever:
"What's your career objective?"
"What are you gona do if you are heired as a full time associates?"
I didn't say that I would buy a house near my work, although that was what I had dreamed of. Instead, I said I would continue to improve my productivity, quality, safety, and to participate more company community involvement.
"How do you think of company associate service?"
In order to easy the tension of the inerview, at the end of questions, I said that as a new immigrant, I felt it would be a life time task for me to learn English and Canadian culture.
Mr. B (interviewer, department manager) encouraged me:" Your English is pretty good. Learning a foreign language is challenging and interesting." He even shared me with his tips of learning Japaness - Listen to radio on your way to work.
In the forthcoming Saturday, there was a 5 hours test (also called written test) in an college. Whose who passed the interview were informed to take this written test. Our company had arranged this test which showed company's emphasis on literature and team work (problem-solving ability).
My department coordinator walked to me while I was working that Thurday. "What are you gona to do this weekend?" he asked with a smile. Thinking the test on the coming Saturday, I replied: "I don't have any plan yet. What's up?" "There is a letter ofr you" - Ohh, I passed the interview!
It would be a long way to go for me to become a full time associate. I take nothing for granted. My team leader and my colleagues all crossed their fingers for me.＜本文发表于: 相约加拿大:枫下论坛 www.rolia.net/f ＞
