Mock Interview Reflection 2017

  • Interviewing a classmate made me feel more prepared for when I have to go for an actual interview for my future job and it also made me fell more confident in myself to go through the interview without hesitation in asking questions.
  • While I was being interviewed through my classmates I felt more prepared and hopeful for a good job in the future while also going through the interview successfully.
  • During the process of the interview, I rethought what I was about to respond to and used accurate grammar and vocabulary in the response to add points to the interview and so I think I the response to the questions was adequate. Also, I think the question of “where do you see yourself in 5 years?” was more difficult than the rest because I can’t imagine where I would be in 5 years.
  • I would advise the upcoming pupils to be confident and truthful towards the upcoming mock interview. Also, I would advise myself to sound more enthusiastic than normal.
  • If I was to take an actual interview I would advice myself and the others around me to be on time, dress according to the preferred job, take the interview seriously, be motivated, and don’t stress out during the interview.  Also, be prepared by bringing a spare pen or pencil for forms or if the interviewer forgets to bring to do so.
  • This class activity was really interesting and a good warm up and reflection for a future job interview. Moreover, to improve the activity I would suggest making it more formal and serious so we can take full advantage of the activity and more accurately reflect the actual interview. Lastly, I do believe this is a skill we as students need for the future because if we do become successful in life and own businesses or prepare our future family for their jobs, then we would need the ability and knowledge to function a proper interview which puts all of our skills into a good summary.
  • There various questions that could be asked in an interview but there is a certain answer that makes it Good or Bad. The question could be “Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?” a good answer to this question would be “I see myself working hard and advancing in life with minimum stress” and a bad answer would be “I see myself at home eating food and watching Netflix”.

EduBlog Challenge: Current News Amazon Drones

In the article, “Amazon’s delivery may drop packages via Parachute” by Matt McFarland, the writer goes through the journey of Amazon’s decision in making the drones deliver the packages and the process of how the drone will deliver the package safely, without harming the public. In addition, the writer also mentions that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office had granted Amazon a Patent for the manner of guiding the packages via drones to the customers safely. Furthermore, the patent also portrays a description of how the packages will be dropped using parachutes, spring coils, or magnets. Towards the end of the article, the writer had informed the readers that Amazon would not be able to launch the drone delivery in the United States and the reason being it is currently illegal to fly a drone without human supervision. The Competition continues in regards to the delivery through the assistance of drones because Google also declared ideas in relation to delivering packages. Moreover, what I find interesting about the article is that the idea of using drones to deliver the package.  Lastly, based on the article I feel like it is more Neutral rather than biased based on the script within the article.


Challenge 5 Family & Culture

Growing up in a big family can have both pros and cons to it, mostly pros. As a family, we really like to travel often, and throughout the years my family had branched out into different locations and eventually settled in. On the other hand, the only part of my family that continued to travel included my parents, sister, and myself. Our family culture falls of the branch of the Indian ethinicity, so our traditions mainly include family dinners during the holidays and etc. As a family of four we traveled through Boston, Washington D.C. , Nairobi, Virginia, and finally Joliet IL. Laslty, the journey of traveling more may continue further after Joliet or it may even end.
