Mock Job Interview Reflection 2018





1.How did you feel while you interviewed a classmate? Do you believe that seeing an interview from the employer’s perspective makes you more prepared or not? Please explain.

I interview one of my classmates I felt like a real boss and I had a feeling on how important it is to make eye constant with others.  I feel like seeing an interview from an employer perspective did make me feel prepared  because they had said somethings that I was like that was good I might use that for my future interview.

2.How did you feel while you were interviewed by a classmates? Did you feel anxious, nervous, scared, prepared, overwhelmed, confident, etc? Please explain why you felt that way.

I felt nervous because I always put myself down and in a interview you have to talk highly about yourself so for me that was hard.

3.How do you feel about your responses?  Do you think your responses to the questions were adequate or do you feel you could have done better? What question did you find easy?  What question did you find difficult to answer?

I feel like my responses was pretty decent but they could be better. The questions I found easy was nun of them because all of them was about how good I am at things but I don’t even know what I’m good at. The questions I found hard was must of them.

4.What advice would you give someone who is participating in a mock interview or a real interview? What advice would you give yourself; in other words, how do you think you could improve for your real interview?

My advice for others is to sit up straight and be confident with your answers.  How I could improve for my real interview is to practice on my vocabulary. What I have learned so I can be prepared for a real one was how they watch every step you take so in other words if you don’t pull up your pants the right way men right away they judge.

5.Yes, I know these mock interviews weren’t real, so imagine how you would perform in the interview if it was real.  What have you learned you need to do to be better prepared?  How should you dress for an interview?  How should you behave before, during, and after an interview?  What should you bring with you to an interview?

How you should dress for a interview is causal and clean. How you should act during, after and before an interview is being respectful and polite. What you should bring is yourself of course and basically that’s all I think.

6.Evaluate the activity.  Be honest.  What do you think was good about this class activity?  How do you think we could improve this activity for next time, next year? Do you believe this is a skill you do need or do not need in real life?  Please explain.

What I think was good about this class activity was how we could have a feeling on how the real world is. We could improve how the kids should take this activity a little more serious. This is a skill we need for the real life because in school we don’t really learn a lot about the real world and this here will help out.

7.Take one of the 20 interview questions below and write a response that would be GOOD and one that would be BAD, then explain the difference with reasoning. It’s always good to practice job interview questions so that you become more and more comfortable.

One of the questions was tell me about your self and why do you think you fit in the job is a good one and bad. The reason why I said that is because you can talk good about yourself but at the same time if you don’t know how then your in a deep whole.

Father’s Day

Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of June. We celebrate this holiday because we honor fathers and fatherhood. The way we celebrate father’s Day is by taking them out and making them feel special because they play a big role in our life’s. A lot of people might not know the celebration has a religious born out of tragedy one of that serves as a remainder to cherish the fathers on our lives. Christians usually are the ones who celebrate this holiday. “I am really not looking forward to Father’s Day. ” This quote is what some people have in mind when the holiday gets closer. It’s hard because you don’t have them by your side on a day you want them to be. In my house we don’t really celebrate any type of holiday so seriously because my father says ” treat this day like any-other, its just a regular day nothing new”. The reason why he says that is because he says “everyday is a holiday”. In my opinion I feel like we should continue celebrating this holiday because we don’t usually appreciate what our parents do for us until there no longer with us. That’s when we realize our parents are here for a reason and we should always remind them how much we love them.

Gay marriage

What is your social issue?

My social issue is gay marriage.

What is it such a social issue? What do people disagree about in relation to this topic?

The reason why its a big issue is because some who open up and admit that there gay had lost their jobs, get arrested. They get punished because some don’t accept. What some people disagree about are the punishments they get for being who they are.

What is your proposed solution? Why do you think this is the best solution?

My solution for my topic is we should give gay marriage the same rights as a straight couple because its unfair and we need justices and liberty for all. I think this is the best solution because if we are not all equal then there is no peace between each other.

What are pros to your solution?

The pros in my solution are that in the past years there has been some changes for those who are different and it will continue through out the years an other one is those who finally open up can live in peace.

What are cons to your solution?

The cons in my solution are that they don’t get accepted as who they are and the hate/ equal hasn’t been stopped yet or started yet.

What are your thoughts on my topic?

Do you think gay marriage should have the same rights as a straight couple?

This picture is a smile with a tear drop it represents me because I hide my emotions. I laugh, smile, keep a happy vibe so I could hide how I really feel just because I feel like life is a gift and I should enjoy every moment of it while i’m breathing. I do not hide who I really am because I want to keep it real between me and others. This is a really good symbol of what my paper is about. Why’s that? Well because coming out as who you really are isn’t so easy like for those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual… etc. They have to put a mask over there real identity just to not be picked on, but it slowly kills you. In this society there is a lot of kids who commit suicide because they don’t fit in and many more reasons, but the answer isn’t killing yourself. You got to stand high and be proud of who you are because your unique even if you don’t think so you are! It’s sad how others don’t accept each other for who they want to be theirs also  got to be those who like to criticize and make others feel bad about themselves. That’s why we wear masks over our image just to feel safe. How I came up with the symbol was hard but it was something that I do a lot and I know for a fact others do the same. Basically the whole purpose of everything I said was for others to read and understand that words can cut someones heart/soul because it hurts to hear those things.



Do you support the legalization of same sex marriage?

In the website I picked the topic of same sex marriage. Through out the whole United States 60% said yes and about 28% said they don’t accept. The 60% of people who said yes, say that people have the right to love even if its the opposite sex. Also, they said love is love and should be expressed in different ways. Liberty and Justice for all. The 28% that had said no, say that the marriage of gay isn’t holy because its not a sacrament of the church and that gay marriage is immoral and wrong because it’s between men and women only. In Illinois there is more people who accept this law then those who don’t because love is hard to find and should be celebrated no matter what. Even in Chicago there is more who believe that everyone should fall in love with whoever they please. Some church’s are against gay beliefs because god did not create man to love man but that’s an opinion. In all races the yes category is more lager than the no the reason being is because people know that we have our own beliefs we can’t just change our minds,why brother and hurt something that we each believe in. Just support and love. The income they say the government should be taken out of the marriage and make it a religious decision. Overall gay marriage is a beautiful commitment that is made.
