    15 Real Tech Company Interview Questions You Will Probably Be Asked (And How To Answer Them)

    There's a scene in the 2013 move "The Internship" where the two laid-off sales guys (played by Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson) are asked one of those legendary Google brain teaser interview questions. The question was: You are shrunk to the height of a nickel and your mass is proportionally reduced so as to maintain your original density. You are then thrown into an empty glass blender. The blades will start moving in 60 seconds. What do you do? Answer: Lots of variants but one is that you jump out. According to the square-cube law your strength-to-mass ratio should have changed, allowing you to be much stronger for your size and jump really high, like an insect. That's a real question that Google…

    Here's The Top LinkedIn Tip From Its Director Of Product Management

    Kevin Simon, LinkedIn’s director of product management, leads the team responsible for the site's Identity and Search products. Naturally, he's a LinkedIn whiz, and in a recent interview he shared one of his favorite tips for members. "The number one thing I’d like members to know is that you’re limiting your prospects and doing yourself a disservice by only updating your profile when you’re hunting for a job," he says. "Eighty-percent of opportunities are going to those who were discovered when they weren’t actively looking." Professionals who update their profiles are more likely to be called for enriching, if not strictly job-related, opportunities like nonprofit board positions, speaking engagements, or mentorship.  "Having the ability to highlight everything from what you’ve accomplished to what you aspire to do,…

    The Beatles’ Top 11 Tips to Reinventing Yourself

    What advice would you give your 12 year-old self if you could go back in time?  I know I’d warn little Susan not to drink peppermint schnapps at 3AM at that Halloween party in college. I’d also tell her to start learning Italian, since she’d need that language to speak to her future husband. And I’d most definitely tell her to start playing the guitar, that it would come in handy when she reinvented herself as a performing singer/songwriter. “Huh?” She’d say.  “When I’m a what?“ We’re taught to do what we love, and once we find that “thing”, that’s pretty much all we do for the rest of our lives. But I’ve found that’s just not true. I am the Mother of Reinvention…in…

    How Your 'Locus Of Control' Drives Your Success (And Stress)

    Do you think that the events in your life — getting hired or getting fired, falling in or out of love, moving from one city to another — are due to your actions or some outside power?  How you answer predicts your job satisfaction, stress levels, and how high up you're likely to climb in an organization.  Psychologists call it your locus of control. Here's Stanford psychologist Philip Zimbardo's take:  A locus of control orientation is a belief about whether the outcomes of our actions are contingent on what we do (internal control orientation) or on events outside our personal control (external control orientation). Essentially, where you believe the locus (Latin for "place") of control lies in your life says a lot about how much…

    17 High-Paying Jobs For People Who Don't Like Stress

    Think there's no such thing as a high-paying, low-stress job? Think again. It turns out there are plenty of low-stress professions in which you can pull in a pretty penny.  We reached out to Laurence Shatkin, Ph.D., a career information expert, to find out which ones fit the bill. Shatkin compared average salaries and stress levels of the 767 occupations identified by the U.S. Department of Labor to identify jobs with that perfect combination of high pay and low stress. The stress tolerance for each job is a rating on a scale from zero to 100, where a lower rating signals less stress. It measures how frequently workers must accept criticism and deal effectively with high stress on the job. The data was gathered from the Bureau of Labor Statistics…

    This 2-Minute Trick Will Boost Your Productivity

    Even the most organized to-do lists can be overwhelming if you don't know where to start.  Luckily, Edward G. Brown lays out a simple solution for prioritizing tasks in his book "The Time Bandit Solution: Recovering Stolen Time You Never Knew You Had." All you have to do is differentiate between what's most important — the "critical few," as Brown puts it — versus what can wait — the "minor many." At the core of this decision process sits the classic 80/20 rule: You should dedicate 80% of your time to the 20% of tasks that prove most profitable. "Not everything we do is of equal importance, no matter how it feels when our entire to-do list is racing around our brain,"…

    7 Bizarre Job Interviews You'll Be Glad You Weren't Involved In

    The internet is full of good advice for what you should and should not do during a job interview. For instance, experts recommend that candidates present a unique personality trait to make themselves stand out, while avoiding the use of excuses when describing their past performance. But there are some situations even the most rigorous research won't prepare you for. People on Quora recently discussed the question, "What is the most bizarre job interview you have ever been party to?" While the stories people told might not provide a lot of insight for your next job interview, many of them are simply too good not to share. Here's a sampling of the craziness that befell these unfortunate interviewers and interviewees: 1. Strip, please. Quora user Sami Thompson's interview for a…

    6 Steps for Auditing Your Company’s Candidate Experience

    (Editor’s Note: Today’s post is brought to you by our friends at iCIMS, a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition solutions. The iCIMS Hire Expectations Institute just released a new research ebook, “Why Would I Want to Work for You?”, offering employers advice on how to attract the best talent. You can download a copy here. Enjoy the post.) A positive candidate experience provides organizations with a competitive advantage in two ways. First, from a revenue perspective. The last thing any company wants is to say “no” to a candidate and lose a customer. The business world is way too competitive to lose a customer over a negative hiring experience. Second is competitive advantage in terms of the War for Talent.…

    22 Quotes By Richard Branson That Take You Inside The Mind Of The Self-Made Billionaire

    When Richard Branson was 16, he started a magazine called "Student." Six years later, he opened up a recording studio. The company's first song — a track called "Tubular Bells" by Mike Oldfield — stayed on the U.K. charts for 247 weeks.  The Virgin empire had begun. Now at 64, Branson is equal parts man, myth, and legend. His Virgin Group is composed of 400 companies, employs 60,000 people, and operates in more than 30 countries. He has an estimated net worth of $5 billion. Branson also has a flair for the dramatic. He's crossed the Atlantic Ocean in a hot air balloon and kite-surfed across the English Channel.

    I have never been one of these gung-ho change your life kind of people until, that was, I chucked in my job, gave away my car and moved to the other side of the world with my wife and two young children. The bizarre irony is that I have worked all my life, as a counsellor and teacher helping other people change their lives. It was time to put my money where my mouth was. At the age of forty two, with a comfortable middle class life, nice safe job teaching at a university and running a private counselling practice, things were just fine…kind of.

The Official Ground Rules for Moving Back Home with Mom and Dad

0

Did you just move back in with your parents? It’s time to start the clock.

A survey from Coldwell Banker Real Estate found that parents think 20-somethings can live at home up to five years. After that, it’s back to the real world and the vast unknown — or, you know, the pull-out couch in a buddy’s apartment.

A combination of student debt, the tough job market and a desire to save money have Millennials returning home at a record pace. A study from Pew Research reveals the number of people between the ages of 18 and 31 living with mom and dad rose 36 percent  in 2012.

As we cohabitate, let it be known far and wide — these are the official ground rules for moving back with our parents:

1. We are a family and also roommates. The arrangement may be tricky at times, but we’re all grownups and will make it work.

2. I, your child, will never, ever complain about a (free) home-cooked meal — no matter how it tastes.

3. I don’t need to tell you where I’m going on a Saturday night, and you certainly shouldn’t stay up until I get back. I will, however, keep my phone on if you need me.

4. We can exist in the same space without constantly making small talk. And it’s OK to come and go without necessarily saying “Hi” and “Bye.”

5. You must always knock before coming into my room. Even if the lights are off and there’s no sound. Even if you’re 100 percent positive I’m not home.

6. While I only need five hours of sleep and a Red Bull to function, I realize you need a solid eight to nine hours, so I’ll keep it down at night.

7. I promise to save money because I know my time in our house is temporary.

8. If the grass is getting long, I’ll mow it. If the floors are dirty, I’ll sweep them. If the sink is full, I’ll load the dishwasher. Thanks for letting me live rent-free.

9. The words “curfew” and “you are grounded” no longer exist. I don’t enjoy hearing the phrase “pick your clothes up off the floor,” but I can’t stop you from saying it.

10. You can go out of town for the weekend and trust that, while I will throw a party, my friends have matured and won’t break expensive things like they did in high school.

11. If you need me to chip in for bills or groceries, just say the word.

12. Whether it’s for one week, six months or five whole years, I will never forget to thank you for letting me come back home when I need it most.
