  1. 1. JOB CLUB NEW JOB OPPORTUNITIES 8 December 2011
  2. 2. Interviews for fun or practice, done with people who are passionate about the same thing you are; Interviews for information, done with information specialists, experts in the industry that interests you, or employees holding down the same job as you are exploring; and Interviews for hire, done with employers in general, and the person who has the power to hire you for the job you want, in particular.Tips about InterviewingThis is about this third kind of interview, the one for hire. Here are ten tips about thatkind of interview:TIP #1 An interview resembles dating, more than it does buying a used car (you). An interviewis analogous to two people trying to decide if they want “to go steady.” An interview isnot to be thought of as marketing yourself: i.e., selling you to a half-interested employer.Rather, an interview is part of your research, i.e., the data-collecting process that youhave been engaged in, or should have been engaged in, during your whole job hunt.While you are sitting there, with the employer, the question you are trying to find ananswer to is: “Do I want to work here, or not?” You use the interview to find out. Onlywhen you have concluded yes, do you then turn your energy toward selling yourself.An interview is not to be thought of as a test. It’s a data-collecting process for theemployer, too.They are trying to decide if you fit.They are using the interview to find out “Do I want him or her to work here?Do they have skills, knowledge, or experience that I really need?Do they have an attitude toward work that I am looking for?And, how will they fit in with my other employees?”
  3. 3. Tips about InterviewingTIP #2An interview should be prepared for, before you ever go in, by taking these three steps:1. Research the organization or company, before going in.Go to their website if they have one, and read everything there that is “About Us.” If yourtown has a public library, ask your local librarian for help in finding any news clippings orother information about the place. And, finally, ask all your friends if they know anyonewho ever worked there, or works there still, so you can take them to lunch or tea orStarbucks and find out any inside stories.All organizations love to be loved. If you’ve gone to the trouble of finding out as muchabout them as you can, they will be flattered and impressed, believe me—because mostjob hunters never go to this amount of trouble.Most just walk in the door, knowing nothing about the organization. I knew a man whoran a large organization in Virginia; he said to me, “I’m so tired of people coming in here,saying, uh, what you do here? That the next person who comes in here and has donesome prior research on us, I’m going to offer a job.” He called me a week later to say, “Ikept my word.”2. When it is you who is taking the initiative in setting up the interview, specify the timeyou are asking of them—unless they ask you to stay longer.Experts recommend you only ask for twenty minutes, and observe this commitmentreligiously. Watch your watch or timepiece like a hawk! Stay aware of the time, and don’tstay one minute longer than the twenty minutes, unless the employer begs you to—and Imean, begs.Always prepare to end it at the time you specified, with, “I said I would only take twentyminutes of your time, and I like to honor my agreements.” This will always make a bigimpression on an employer!3. As you go to the interview, keep in mind that if this is the person-who-actually-has-the-power-to-hire-you, then they are just as anxious as you are.Why? Because, the hiring-interview is not a very reliable way to choose an employee. In asurvey conducted some years back, among a dozen top United Kingdom employers, itwas discovered that the chances of an employer finding a good employee through thehiring-interview was only 3 percent better than if they had picked a name out of a hat.
  4. 4. Tips about InterviewingIn a further ironic finding, it was discovered that if the interview was conducted bysomeone who would be working directly with the candidate, the success rate dropped to2 percent below that of picking a name out of a hat. And if the interview was conductedBy a so-called human resources expert, the success rate dropped to 10 percent belowthat of picking a name out of a hat. No, I don’t know how they came up with these figures, and maybe they are flat wrong,but I don’t think so. They are totally consistent with what I have learned about the worldof hiring during the past forty years. I have watched so-called experts make wretchedlybad choices about hiring in their own office, and when they would morosely confess thisto me some months later, over lunch, I would playfully tease them with, “If you don’teven know how to hire well for your own office, how do you keep a straight face whenyou’re called in as a hiring consultant by another organization?” And they would ruefullyreply, “We act as though it were a science.” Well, let me tell you, dear reader, hiring isnot a science. It is a very, very hazy art, done ineptly by most of its employer-practitioners, in spite of their own past experience, their very best intentions, and theircarloads of good will. TIP #3 What this adds up to, is that the hiring- interview is not what it seems to be. It seems to be one individual (you) sitting there, scared to death, while the other individual (the employer) is sitting there, blasé and confident. But what it really is, is two individuals (you and the employer) sitting there supremely anxious. It’s just that employers have learned to hide their fears better than you have, because they’ve had more practice. But this employer is, after all, a human being just like you. In most cases, they were not hired to do this. It got thrown in with all their other duties. And they dread making the wrong decision.
  5. 5. Tips about InterviewingThe employer’s fears include any or all of the following: That you won’t be able to do the job: that you lack the necessary skills or experience, and the hiring-interview won’t uncover this. That if hired, you won’t put in a full working day, more often than not. That if hired, you’ll take frequent sick days, on one pretext or another. That if hired, you’ll only stay around for a few weeks or at most a few months, until you find a better job that you can go get. That it will take you too long to master the job, and thus it will be too long before you’re profitable to that organization. That you won’t get along with the other workers there, or that you will develop a personality conflict with the boss. That you will only do the minimum that you can get away with, rather than the maximum that the boss is hoping for. Since every boss these days is trying to keep their workforce smaller than it was before the Recession, they are hoping for the maximum productivity from each new hire. That you will always have to be told what to do next, rather than displaying initiative—that you will always be in a responding mode, rather than an initiating mode (and mood). That you will have a disastrous character flaw not evident in the interview, and turn out to be either dishonest, or irresponsible, a spreader of dissension at work, lazy, an embezzler, a gossip, a sexual harasser, a drunk, a drug-user or substance abuser, a liar, incompetent, or—in a word—an employer’s worst nightmare. J. (If this is a large organization, and your would-be boss is not the top person) that you will bring discredit upon them, and upon their department/section/division, etc., forever hiring you in the first place—making them lose face, possibly also costing them a raise or a promotion from the boss upstairs. That you will cost a lot of money, if they make a mistake by hiring you. Currently, in the U.S. the cost to an employer of a bad hire can far exceed $50,000, including relocation costs, lost pay for the period for work not done or aborted, and severance pay, if they are the ones who decide to let you go. (Put “cost of a bad hire” into a search engine like Google and you will see figures ranging from fifteen times the hire’s monthly salary to five times the hire’s annual salary.) No wonder the employer interviewing you is as anxious as you are. In your heart, be as compassionate toward them, as you hope they will be toward you. Forget the title—”employer” or “employee”—both of you are just persons.
  6. 6. Tips about InterviewingTIP #4During the interview, determine to observe “the 50-50 Rule.” Studies have revealed that,in general, the people who get hired are those who mix speaking and listening fifty-fifty inthe interview. That is, half the time they let the employer do the talking; half the time inthe interview they do the talking.1. People who didn’t follow that mix were the ones who didn’t get hired, according to thestudy. My hunch as to the reason why this is so, is that if you talk too much aboutyourself, you come across as one who would ignore the needs of the organization; if youtalk too little, you come across as trying to hide something about your background.2. This one was done by a researcher at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, whosename has been lost in the mists of time.TIP #5In answering the employer’s questions, observe “the twenty-second to two-minute rule.”Studies have revealed that when it is your turn to speak or answer a question, you shouldplan not to speak any longer than two minutes at a time, if you want to make the bestimpression. In fact, a good answer to an employer’s question sometimes only takestwenty seconds to give. (But not less than that, else you will be assumed to be “agrunter,” without any communication skills.)
  7. 7. Tips about InterviewingTIP #6Determine to be seen as a part of the solution, not as a part of the problem. Everyorganization has two main preoccupations for its day-by-day work: the problems—theygenerally prefer “challenges”—they are facing, and what solutions to those challengestheir employees and management are coming up with.Therefore, the main thing the employer is trying to figure out during the hiring-interviewwith you is: will you be part of the solution there, or just another part of the problem.In trying to answer this concern, you should figure out prior to the interview how a bademployee would “screw up,” in the position you are asking for—such things as come inlate, take too much time off, follow his or her own agenda instead of the employer’s, etc.Then plan to emphasize to the employer during the interview how much you are the veryopposite: your sole goal “is to increase the organization’s effectiveness, service, andbottom line.”Be aware of the skills all employers are looking for, these days, regardless of the positionyou are seeking.
  8. 8. Tips about InterviewingThey are looking for employees:Who are punctual, arriving at work on time or better yet, earlyWho stay until quitting time, or even leave lateWho are dependable; who have a good attitudeWho have drive, energy, and enthusiasmWho want more than a paycheckWho are self-disciplined, well-organized, highly motivated, and good atmanaging their timeWho can handle people well; who can use language effectivelyWho can work on a computerWho are committed to teamworkWho are flexible, and can respond to novel situations, or adapt whencircumstances at work changeWho are trainable, and love to learnWho are project-oriented, and goal-orientedWho have creativity and are good at problem solvingWho have integrity; who are loyal to the organizationWho are able to identify opportunities, markets, and coming trendsAbove all, they want to hire people who can bring in more money than they are paid.
  9. 9. TIP #7Realize that the employer thinks the way you are doing your job hunt is the way youwill do the job. So, be sure that you illustrate throughout the interview what you want toclaim will be true of you, once hired. For example, if you plan on claiming that you arevery thorough in all your work, be sure to be thorough in the way you have researchedthe company or organization ahead of time. The manner in which you do your job huntand the manner in which you would do the job you are seeking, are not assumed by mostemployers to be two unrelated subjects, but one and the same. They can tell when youare doing a slipshod, half-hearted job hunt (“Uh, what do you guys do here?”), and this istaken as a clear warning that you will do a slipshod, half-hearted job, were they foolishenough to hire you. Most people job hunt the same way they live their lives, and do theirwork.TIP #8Try to think of some way to bring evidence of your skills, to the hiring-interview. Forexample, if you are an artist, a craftsperson, or anyone who produces a product, try tobring a sample of what you have made or produced—in scrapbook or portfolio form, withphotos, or even videos. (Just in case.) If you are a programmer, bring examples of yourscripts. And so on.
  10. 10. Tips about InterviewingTIP #9Do not bad-mouth your previous employer(s) during the interview, even if they wereterrible bosses. Employers sometimes feel as though they are a fraternity or sorority.During the interview you want to come across as one who displays courtesy toward allmembers of that fraternity or sorority.Bad-mouthing a previous employer only makes this employer who is interviewing you,worry about what you would say about them, after they hire you.I learned this in my own experience. I once spoke graciously about a previous employerduring a job-interview. Unbeknownst to me, the interviewer already knew that myprevious employer had badly mistreated me.He therefore thought very highly of me because I didn’t bring it up. In fact, he never forgotthis incident; talked about it for years afterward.) Plan on saying something nice aboutany previous employer, or if you are pretty sure that the fact you and they didn’t getalong will surely come out, then try to nullify this ahead of time, by saying somethingsimple like, “I usually get along with everybody; but for some reason, my past employerand I just didn’t get along. Don’t know why. It’s never happened to me before. Hope itnever happens again.”
  11. 11. Tips about InterviewingTIP #10Naturally, the employer is going to ask you questions, as a way of helping them figure outwhether or not they want to hire you. Books on interviewing, of which there are many,often publish long lists of these questions, with timeworn, semi-clever answerssuggested, and the recommendation that you memorize the answers to all thosequestions. Their lists include such questions as:• Tell me about yourself.• What do you know about this company?• Why are you applying for this job?• How would you describe yourself?• What are your major strengths?• What is your greatest weakness?• What type of work do you like to do best?• What are your interests outside of work?• What accomplishment gave you the greatest satisfaction?• Why did you leave your last job?• Why were you fired (if you were)?• Where do you see yourself five years from now?• What are your goals in life?• How much did you make at your last job?But really there are only five basic questions that you need pay attention to.The people-who-have-the-power-to-hire-you need to know the answers to these five,which they may ask directly or try to find out obliquely: 1. “Why are you here?” This means “Why are you knocking on my door, rather thansomeone else’s door?”2. “What can you do for us?” This means “If I were to hire you, would you be part of theproblems I already have, or would you be a part of the solution to those problems? Whatare your skills, and how much do you know about the subject or field that we are in?”3. “What kind of person are you?” This means “Will you fit in? Do you have the kind ofpersonality that makes it easy for people to work with you, and do you share the valuesthat we have at this place?”
  12. 12. Tips about Interviewing4. “What distinguishes you from nineteen or nine hundred other people who areapplying for this job?” This means “Do you have better work habits than the others, doyou show up earlier, stay later, work more thoroughly, work faster, maintain higherstandards, go the extra mile, or … what?”5. “Can I afford you?” This means “If we decide we want you here, how much will it taketo get you, and are we willing and able to pay that amount—governed, as we are, by ourbudget, and by our inability to pay you as much as the person who would be next aboveyou, on our organizational chart?”These are the five principal questions that employers need toknow the answers to. This is the case, even if the interviewbegins and ends with these five questions never once beingmentioned explicitly by the employer.The questions are still floating beneath the surface of the conversation, beneath all thethings being discussed.Anything you can do, during the interview, to help the employer answer these fivequestions; will make the interview more helpful to the employer.
  13. 13. Tips about InterviewingOf course, it’s not just the employer who has questions. You have some too—inevitably.And—surprise—they are basically the same questions (in only slightly different form) asthe employer’s. Your questions come out sounding like this: 1. “What does this job involve?” You want to understand exactly what tasks will beasked of you, so that you can determine if these are the kinds of tasks you would reallylike to do, and can do.2. “What are the skills a top employee in this job would have to have?” You want to findout if your skills match those that the employer thinks a top employee in this job has tohave, in order to do this job well; not just an average employee.3. “Are these the kinds of people I would like to work with, or not?” Do not ignore yourintuition if it tells you that you would not be comfortable working with these people!! Youwant to know if they have the kind of personalities that would enable you to accomplishyour best work. If these people aren’t it, keep looking! You don’t want to be miserable atwork. It pays to be picky here.4. “If we like each other, and both want to work together, can I persuade them there issomething unique about me, that makes me different from nineteen or nine hundredother people who are applying for this job?” You need to think out, way ahead of time,what does make you different from other people who can do the same job. For example, ifyou are good at analyzing problems, how do you do that? Painstakingly? Intuitively, in aflash? By consulting with greater authorities in the field? You see the point. You are tryingto put your finger on the “style” or “manner” in which you do your work, that is distinctiveand hopefully appealing, to this employer.5. “Can I persuade them to hire me at the salary I need or want?” This requires someknowledge on your part of how to conduct salary negotiation. (Key things to know: itshould always take place at the end of the interviews there, and whoever mentions asalary figure first, generally loses, in the negotiation.)You will probably want to ask questions one and two, above,out loud. You will observe quietly the answer to questionthree. You will be prepared to make the case for questionsfour and five, when the appropriate time in the interviewarises.

  47. 47. What is an Arizona Fingerprint Clearance Card and who uses it?The State of Arizona allows a person seeking employment, professional license, oradmittance into an educational program to apply for a Fingerprint Clearance Card(hereinafter referred to as the “Card”). The Card is a small laminated card, similar to adriver’s license, which verifies that said person is capable of legal and gainful employmentbased on his criminal background or lack thereof.Employers use the Card as a means of establishing a potential or current employee’sbackground. An employer may verify the validity of the Card by calling (602) 223-2279,and providing the card number, the potential or current employee’s name, and SocialSecurity Number. Under no circumstances should the employee attempt to use a Xeroxcopy of the card, while no employer should accept a Xerox copy of the card from anyemployee.Persons under eighteen or over ninety-nine years old are exempt from the fingerprintingclearance requirements, but he or she must be under the direct visual supervision ofpersonnel who have valid fingerprint clearance cards.Who issues the Arizona Fingerprint Clearance Card?The Fingerprint Division of the Department of Public Safety issues the Cards (hereinafterreferred to as the “Division”). The Division conducts the fingerprint background checksfor applicants who are seeking various employment opportunities. Additionally, theDivision performs periodic state criminal history record checks for the purposes ofupdating the clearance status of current fingerprint clearance cardholders. The Board ofFingerprinting (hereinafter referred to as the “Board”) and the agency employing theperson may be notified of the results of a record check.How do I obtain a Fingerprint Clearance Card?A person seeking a Card must submit a completed application to the Division.

  48. 48. The fee to obtain a Card is $69 for a paid employees and teacher certification and $65 forvolunteers.For an applicant with no state or federal criminal record, the processing time isapproximately three to five weeks from the date the Division receives the applicationpacket. For those persons who have a criminal record, the process may take four to eightweeks. Cards issued prior to October 1, 2003, are valid for three years. Cards issued on orafter October 1, 2003, are valid for six years.The applicant must submit a full set of fingerprints to the Division, though the Divisiondoes not itself take applicant fingerprints. The applicant can obtain a set of fingerprintsfrom his local law enforcement agency or the applicant may use a private fingerprintingservice. The applicant must submit a new set of fingerprints to the division for afingerprint background check every six years.After the Division receives the applicant’s state and federal criminal history, it comparesit to the record with the list of criminal offenses (contained in A.R.S. § 41-1758.03(B) and(C)) that preclude an applicant from receiving the Card. The Division issues a Card, subjectto the resultsWhat offenses prevent me from obtaining the Card?A complete list of offenses that would prevent an applicant from receiving a Card iscontained in A.R.S. § 41-1758.03(B) and (C). By way of example, applicants precludedfrom receiving the Card are those applicants required to register as a sex offender, orwho have been convicted of or are awaiting trial for first or second degree murder, sexualassault, child abuse, molestation of a child, sexual abuse, assault, theft, robbery, crueltyto animals, kidnapping, arson, welfare fraud, possession or use of any controlledsubstances, etc. However, even if a person has been convicted of or is on trial for any ofthe listed offenses, he or she may petition the Board for a good cause exception.A person will be given a Card under the good cause exception if:1) An agency (meaning the supreme court, the department of economic security, thedepartment of education, the department of health services, the department of juvenilecorrections, the department of emergency and military affairs, or the board of examinersof a nursing care institution administrators and assisted living facility managers) granted agood cause exception before August 16, 1999, and no new precluding offense isidentified; or2) The Board granted a good cause exception and no new precluding offense is identified.Will clearing my record help?According to agents at the Fingerprint Division of the Arizona Department of Safety,having a conviction set aside can increase the chances of having the application for a cardbeing approved. Because having the conviction set aside demonstrates rehabilitation,
  49. 49. having a conviction set aside is especially helpful when using the good cause exception,which specifically looks for rehabilitation. An Arizona attorney can aid applicants withcriminal histories to obtain the Card and restore not only their rights, but also theirconfidence. It is highly recommended that record clearing be done at least one monthbefore applying for a card.What if my application is denied? May I appeal the denial?The Division will send a letter of denial if, after conducting a state and federal criminalhistory record check, the Division determines that the applicant is ineligible for a Card.After the applicant receives the letter of denial, he or she has 30 days to appeal. Theapplicant must request, complete, sign, and mail an appeal packet to the Department ofPublic Safety. The appeal packet can be obtained by calling the Board at (602) 223-2279or by fax at (602) 223-2947.Upon receipt of the applicant’s appeal packet, the Department of Public Safety conductsan extensive background check on the individual. Thereafter, the agency turns theapplicant’s information over to the Board. The Board is comprised of 5 individuals whomeet once every two weeks.After deliberation, the Board decides whether to 1) grant the applicant an automaticclearance based on the information provided in the appeal documents and thebackground check, or 2) grant the applicant a hearing. If the applicant is granted ahearing, he or she will be notified of the time and place of the hearing. At the hearing,the burden of proof falls on the applicant to present evidence that he or she has madepositive changes since the time of the conviction. The applicant may have an attorneypresent with him. Judgments that have been set aside or dismissed are looked uponfavorably, as they demonstrate the applicant’s rehabilitation and ability to be a law-abiding citizen. Applicants are therefore well advised to consult an attorney prior toinitially applying to obtain the Card.Denial or Suspension of a Fingerprint Clearance Card (Department of Public Safety)This section describes the process after a person applies for a fingerprint clearance card,especially when the fingerprint clearance card is denied or suspended.DenialIndividuals who apply for a fingerprint clearance card — whether a Level I fingerprintclearance card or a standard fingerprint clearance card (see below for an explanation ofthe difference) — submit this application to the Arizona Department of Public Safety(DPS), along with fingerprint imprints. DPS conducts a background check on your criminalhistory at both the state and national (i.e., FBI) levels. If there are any arrests on yourrecord, DPS compares the criminal offenses with a list of offenses that would cause thedenial or suspension of a fingerprint clearance card, such as assault, theft, drug offenses,
  50. 50. as well as many others. Offenses that appear in this list are referred to as "precludedoffenses."If a persons criminal record includes precluded offenses, DPS will see what thedisposition — that is, the final result of an offense, such as conviction, no contest plea,dismissal, etc. — of each offense is. If a conviction exists, DPS denies the card.Sometimes, though, the criminal record does not include disposition information. DPSconducts research with a variety of law enforcement agencies to try to find out thedisposition. If, after 30 business days, DPS still does not know the disposition of anoffense, it will deny the card.In most cases, individuals whose card is denied are able to apply for a good causeexception to the Board of Fingerprinting.SuspensionA suspension occurs when DPS discovers that a person who holds a fingerprint clearancecard has a new arrest for a precluded offense. For instance, a cardholder who is arrestedfor assault will have his or her card suspended. In most other respects, however, there islittle difference between a suspension and a denial for the purpose of the good-cause-exception application process.Difference between Level I and standard fingerprint clearance cardIn 2009, a new law went into effect that created two types of fingerprint clearance cardsrather than just one type. Beginning on July 1, 2009, DPS began issuing Level I fingerprintclearance cards, in addition to the standard fingerprint clearance cards. There are moretypes of criminal charges that can cause a Level I card to be denied or suspended, so theLevel I card is more restrictive and harder to get. Standard cards correspond, for the mostpart, with the fingerprint clearance card that existed prior to the legislative changes.Struggling with AZ fingerprint clearance cardBeen working on appeal process -"good exception cause"- since last Oct. with Az. Boardof Fingerprints. Sent in all court documents showing completion of sentencing terms,sent in completion of inpatient treatment and all supporting documents regarding myrecovery process. Received a letter from fingerprinting board today stating now I have togo to an "administrative hearing" in 20 days. Has any other nurse out there gone to anadministrative hearing for fingerprint clearance and wonder what should I expect? I havejumped through many hoops to get my LPN license reinstated and by the grace of God iwill make it through another hoop. But would like to hear of any similar experiences withthe fingerprint clearance card process in Az.Hello gr8fulnrs,RN from Tucson, Arizona. Been through that same process in Phoenix. No big deal, justsell yourself. You will be interviewed by a judge that records the whole interview. Mycontact was a female judge, she sat behind a desk, about 6 feet away and I sat in a chairacross from her where I was asked to sit. It was just her and me and of course, amicrophone. I had a DUI in my past and I just told her what was happening in my life then
  51. 51. and how my life is now. How I was promoted as a unit manager at the LTC facility that Iwas working at and etc. She even told me at this interview, (maybe 30 minutes) that shewould grant me the card and that I would expect to wait up till 6-8 weeks for here to typeup the report. I think it took about 3 months, but I finally got it. You can E-mail me, if youlike.Reasons for Applicant Card Denial (Rev 12/10)41-1758.03. Fingerprint clearance cards; issuance; immunityA.
