In the last two days, I was tweaking the HTML codes, CSS and blog template tags, based on the information I found on the Internet. Now, you can see that my blog template looks much nicer. I've adjusted the right sidebars as well as the main content container. I can easily change the format, including font size, background, width, color, etc. It is always good to have these basic skills if you want your blog to stand out from others. Next step, I am going to learn how to add an image on the blog tempate.
What's popular in the blogosphere recently? Check out this cool widget - Imagini Visual DNA.
There are many websites out there providing free widgets for bloggers to download. You put widgets on your websites or blogs with a link back to their site; Your readers click it and do the same. The widget site thus get free promotion from you and increase their link popularity and Google PageRank - It is not a free lunch.
I am playing around with my template. I want to make my template look more professional but I don't have too much knowledge about HTML and blog template tags. The right sidebars just don't work well. I need to do more search on the Internet to find a solution.
Behavioral interview questions will be more pointed, more probing and more specific than traditional interview questions:
1. Give an example of an occasion when you used logic to solve a problem.
2. Give an example of a goal you reached and tell me how you achieved it.
3. Describe a decision you made that was unpopular and how you handled implementing it.
4. Have you gone above and beyond the call of duty? If so, how?
5. What do you do when your schedule is interrupted? Give an example of how you handle it.
6. Have you had to convince a team to work on a project they weren't thrilled about? How did you do it?
7. Have you handled a difficult situation with a co-worker? How?
8. Tell me about how you worked effectively under pressure.
Follow-up questions will also be detailed. You may be asked what you did, what you said, how you reacted or how you felt.
Talking on the phone isn't as easy as it seems. I've always found it's helpful to practice. Have a friend or family member conduct a mock interview and tape record it so you can see how you sound over the phone. Any cassette recorder will work. You'll be able to hear your "ums" and "uhs" and "okays" and you can practice reducing them from your conversational speech. Also rehearse answers to those typical questions you'll be asked.
During the Phone Interview
1. Don't smoke, chew gum, eat, or drink.
2. Do keep a glass of water handy, in case you need to wet your mouth.
3. Smile. Smiling will project a positive image to the listener and will change the tone of your voice.
4. Speak slowly and enunciate clearly.
5. Use the person's title (Mr. or Ms. and their last name.) Only use a first name if they ask you to.
6. Don't interrupt the interviewer.
7. Take your time - it's perfectly acceptable to take a moment or two to collect your thoughts.
8. Give short answers.
9. Remember your goal is to set-up a face-to-face interview. After you thank the interviewer ask if it would be possible to meet in person.
