  • @lornemarr It was a presentation for mainly Dutch speaking students, so hence the dutch. I agree that you can give unexpected answers to cliché questions. In my presentation I tell that, my yellow boxes are just not big enough for long explanations.

  • Too bad that some slides are only in Dutch. I've enjoyed this presentation, but I disagree with the slide 46. I think that giving an unexpected answer to a cliché question shows your ability to improvise or that your thinking stands out from the crowd. From which research is the diagram on the slide 53?

    36. Show you’re interested.
    37. Show you’re interested.Bring your own CV.
    38. Show you’re interested.Ask questions. The aim of the first date / interview is to know if you want a relationship. You have to spend 10 hours a day on your work. Make sure you know what is coming.
    39. Show you’re interested.Write things down. It gives an interested impression and it will help you afterwards when you have to choose between the jobs being offered.
    40. Modesty rarely helps.Confidence always helps!
    41. Cliché questions I never ask those questions, but a lot of companies do. So when they ask cliché questions, give cliché answers! But be prepared. What are your best / worst qualities. Why should we choose you? Why are you more qualified than others?

    48. Words 7%Body Language 55% Tone of voice 38% Communication is 100%, make sure you use is for 100% don’t forget the body language, the tone of voice and the words.
    49. If you don’t think you be mister or misses right dare to tellit. Better no relationship than a bad one. Have your own opinion.
