      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Sending a cover letter along with your resume is considered a standard practice when applying for a job. The cover letter allows you to introduce yourself, highlight your qualifications, and explain why you are interested in the position. It provides an opportunity to personalize your application and make a good first impression on the potential employer. Therefore, it is recommended to send a cover letter along with your resume to increase your chances of getting noticed and considered for the job.

    It is best to provide one single "generic" resume to use for all job applications, tailoring your resume for particular jobs is costly and time consuming.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Tailoring your resume for particular jobs is not costly and time-consuming, but rather essential for increasing your chances of getting hired. A generic resume may not effectively highlight the specific skills and experiences that are relevant to a particular job. By customizing your resume for each application, you can emphasize your qualifications that align with the job requirements, making it more appealing to employers. This targeted approach shows your dedication and effort, increasing your chances of standing out among other applicants.

    "Any type of work" would be a great career objective to place on your resume.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    "Any type of work" would not be a great career objective to place on your resume. A career objective should be specific and tailored to the job you are applying for. It should highlight your skills, qualifications, and goals that align with the position you are seeking. A generic objective like "any type of work" does not demonstrate focus or direction and may give the impression that you are not committed or serious about a particular career path.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    You should always take a trusted friend, or your parents, to an interview along with you.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is not necessary to take a trusted friend or parents to an interview. Interviews are typically conducted one-on-one between the interviewer and the interviewee. Bringing someone else along may give the impression that the interviewee lacks confidence or independence. It is important for the interviewee to present themselves professionally and handle the interview process on their own. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    • A.

      True

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    After a job interview, it is important to ask questions to gain clarity, show interest, and leave a positive impression on the interviewer. By asking questions, you demonstrate your enthusiasm for the role and the company, as well as your desire to learn more about the job responsibilities, company culture, and potential for growth. Leaving without any questions may give the impression that you are not genuinely interested or prepared for the position, which could negatively impact your chances of being selected for the job.

Being outgoing allows the salesperson to confidently approach potential clients and engage in conversations, while being friendly helps create a positive and welcoming environment. These traits are essential for building relationships, persuading customers, and ultimately closing deals.

    • C.

      Your brother

    • D.

      Your current employer

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    While a former teacher, old basketball coach, and current employer can provide professional references and speak to your skills and abilities, your brother may not be able to provide an objective assessment of your qualifications. Family members are generally seen as biased and may not have the necessary knowledge or experience to provide a meaningful reference for employment or academic purposes.

It is a way to express gratitude for the interviewer's time and consideration. Sending a thank you letter also allows the candidate to reiterate their interest in the position and highlight any key points discussed during the interview.

It introduces the applicant to the employer by highlighting their qualifications, skills, and experiences that make them a suitable candidate for the position. The purpose of a cover letter is to grab the employer's attention and persuade them to consider the applicant for the job. Therefore, a cover letter is the letter that helps you introduce yourself to the employer.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    A mission statement is a concise summary of a company's purpose, goals, and values. It provides insight into the company's overall direction and can help job applicants understand the organization's mission and whether it aligns with their own values and career goals. Reviewing the mission statement before an interview allows applicants to demonstrate their knowledge of the company and show their genuine interest in working for the organization.

    • D.

      Ten days after the interview

    Correct Answer
    C. Right after the interview
    Explanation

This can be helpful if you want to send a thank-you email or follow up on any questions or concerns discussed during the interview. Asking for the business card immediately shows professionalism and a proactive approach in maintaining communication with the interviewer. Waiting too long to ask for the business card may result in difficulty in reaching out to the interviewer later on.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    The interviewee should always talk wrongly about the previous employer.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is not advisable for an interviewee to always speak negatively about their previous employer. Speaking negatively can reflect poorly on the interviewee's professionalism and ability to work well with others. It is important for the interviewee to be honest about any challenges faced in their previous role, but focusing solely on the negative aspects can give the impression of a negative attitude or inability to take responsibility for their own actions. It is better for the interviewee to speak diplomatically and constructively about their previous employer, highlighting what they learned and how they grew from the experience.

    The statement is false because company stocks are indeed searchable by symbols. Stock symbols are unique identifiers assigned to each publicly traded company, making it easier for investors and traders to search and track specific stocks. These symbols are widely used in financial markets and can be easily searched on various platforms, websites, and databases to retrieve information about a particular company's stock.

    Explanation
    This statement is true because it is common for multiple people to be involved in the interview process. Having multiple interviewers allows for a more comprehensive evaluation of the interviewee's skills, qualifications, and fit for the position. It also provides different perspectives and reduces bias in the decision-making process. Therefore, it is not uncommon for organizations to have panel interviews or involve multiple stakeholders in the interviewing process.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Reviewing the company website before an interview is necessary because it allows the candidate to gather information about the company, its values, mission, and culture. This knowledge can help the candidate tailor their answers during the interview and demonstrate their interest and preparedness. Additionally, reviewing the website helps the candidate understand the company's products or services, recent achievements, and any current news or events, which can be useful for asking informed questions during the interview. Overall, reviewing the company website before an interview is essential for a candidate to make a positive impression and show their enthusiasm for the position.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    The interviewee must never ask any questions after the interview.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "The interviewee must never ask any questions after the interview" is incorrect. It is common and encouraged for interviewees to ask questions at the end of an interview. Asking questions demonstrates interest in the role and allows the interviewee to gather more information about the company and position. It also provides an opportunity for the interviewee to assess if the job is the right fit for them. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If the job applicant does not know the name of the hiring manager, it is appropriate to address the person as "Dear Sir/Madam." This is a common and respectful way to address someone when their specific name is unknown. It shows professionalism and courtesy in the absence of a known name.

    Rate this question:

  • 26. 

    In a cover letter, the first paragraph is the "first point of contact". 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The first paragraph of a cover letter is considered the "first point of contact" because it is the first section that the reader will see. It is where the applicant introduces themselves and expresses their interest in the position. This paragraph sets the tone for the rest of the letter and is crucial in grabbing the reader's attention. Therefore, it can be concluded that the statement is true.

    • C.

      Blue or black ink

    • D.

      Pink

    Correct Answer
    C. Blue or black ink
    Explanation
    The correct answer is blue or black ink. This is because blue and black ink are considered professional and formal colors for business letters. Using purple, pink, or highlighting in yellow with a Sharpie may not be appropriate for a business setting and can give a less serious impression.

    Rate this question:

  • 28. 

    If I am applying to a Marketing position, I should only include the skills I have in Accounting.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false. When applying for a marketing position, it is important to include the relevant skills and experience in marketing, not accounting. Accounting skills may not be directly applicable to a marketing role, so it is more beneficial to highlight skills such as market research, advertising, social media marketing, branding, and communication. Including accounting skills that are unrelated to the position may confuse employers and make it appear that the candidate is not a good fit for the marketing role.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A firm handshake is typically seen as a sign of confidence and assertiveness, rather than weakness. It shows that the person is self-assured and capable. Therefore, the statement that giving a firm handshake to the interviewer is a sign of weakness is incorrect.

    Correct Answer(s)

    B. Calling the company's secretary to learn of the hiring manager's name
    Explanation
    Preparing for an interview involves reviewing the company website to gather information about the company, its values, and its goals. This will help in understanding the company's culture and aligning one's answers accordingly. Additionally, calling the company's secretary to learn the hiring manager's name shows initiative and allows for personalizing the interview process. However, calling the hiring manager and taking him out for pizza is not a recommended step in interview preparation. It is important to be prepared and professional during an interview. The statement "You don't need to prepare before an interview" is incorrect as preparation is crucial for a successful interview.

Salary negotiations are typically addressed after the candidate has been offered the position, making it an unacceptable question to ask during the interview process.

    I can enclose all of the following documents on a resume except,

    • A.

      References

    • B.

      School Transcripts

    • C.

      Cover Letter

    • D.

      Google Doc with my phone number

    Correct Answer
    D. Google Doc with my phone number
    Explanation
    A resume typically includes important information such as personal details, education, work experience, and skills. References, school transcripts, and a cover letter are all commonly included in a resume to provide additional information and support the applicant's qualifications. However, including a Google Doc with a phone number is not necessary or appropriate for a resume. Contact information, including a phone number, can be included directly on the resume itself. A separate Google Doc with a phone number would be redundant and unnecessary.

This allows them to have a few minutes to gather their thoughts, compose themselves, and review any last-minute information. It also shows punctuality and professionalism, as arriving early demonstrates respect for the interviewer's time and shows that the interviewee is eager and prepared for the interview. Arriving right on time or even a few minutes late may give the impression of being disorganized or not taking the interview seriously.
