What are your thoughts on illegal streaming and content downloading?
Illegal streaming or unlawful downloading is running rampant these days, forcing legitimate companies to drop their pricing or find other ways to draw in honest customers. The interviewer would like to know your thoughts when it comes to sites that offer illegal or pirated video downloads.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I think that sites offering illegal or pirated versions of television shows, movies, and other videos are doing a terrible disservice to the entertainment industry. Taking profits away from the studios, actors, producers, and content distributors is a short term gain but in the end, will greatly affect the future of media."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I recently read an article stating that illegal media and sites with pirated content are becoming less popular among the general public. I believe we are more educated today than we were ten years ago, on the negative effects that pirated content has on media as a whole."
2.
What are your salary expectations?
In many states, it is now illegal for hiring authorities to ask about your current earnings. A question like this will give the interviewer a solid idea of what you are hoping to earn. When you change positions, you want to see an increase in wage. Most interviewees will typically aim for a 7-15% increase for each time they change jobs. This range offers room for negotiations with the new company. This percentage increase reflects economic inflation, the unique skills you bring to the table from the last time you joined an organization, and growth in responsibilities.

The best way to discuss your salary expectations is to use your current earnings as an example if you are comfortable doing so. If this makes you uncomfortable, do give as many indicators as you can. Be open, and honest. Transparency is the best choice when salary based questions arise.

If you are newer to your career, or the area, and are unsure of what a fair ask may be, there are many reliable salary calculators available online.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I can share with you what I am currently earning, and where I would like to be in my next position. Currently, I am earning a base salary of $78K plus an annual bonus opportunity of an additional 10%. Last year my earnings were $85K, and I'd like to earn above that in my next position, to reflect the MBA I recently acquired."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I am negotiable with my salary expectations. However, I am not inclined to lose compensation. Compensation to me, though, is not only net pay. I take into account work hours, commute. overnight travel, health benefits, etc."

When entering a new job, describe how you build relationships with your new coworkers and supervisors.
The interviewer would like to know how you plan to start relationships with your new co-workers. Due to a wide variety of personalities, coworker connections can take time to form. How do you ensure that you have a strong line of communication with your co-workers and supervisors, right from the start?

Here are some ideas for getting started on the right foot:

- Be willing to accept feedback and help
- Offer to join a committee or volunteer assistance in some way
- Do not have an air of entitlement or act as though you know the ins and outs immediately
- Avoid all company gossip, at all cost
- Be thankful for the equipment that you have. Don't complain about your used computer or your slow dial out line!
- Be early on your first day (and every day after that!)
- Come dressed appropriately

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I understand that some relationships come quickly and others take time to nurture. When starting a new job all that I can do is be my true self and let my personality, integrity, and reliability speak for itself."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I understand that people like to talk about themselves. The best way that I can create new relationships with others is by asking them about themselves. Hopefully, we find common ground and make a quick connection!"

Tell me about your experiences giving presentations in front of large groups.
Public speaking can be intimidating! Did you know that the fear of public speaking is the #1 phobia? It comes ahead of the fear of death and the fear of spiders! It is okay to find public speaking a bit intimidating but do assure the interviewer that you are capable of communicating well in front of large groups. Have you taken any courses or training in public speaking? Perhaps you have so much experience that it comes second nature. Assure the interviewer that you are capable of giving presentations. If you have given presentations, you can also mention the topic, what the setting was, and to how many people you presented.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"In my last two roles I have been responsible for regularly presenting to my team of 43 staff as well as to our entire warehouse team of over 200. I have taken a couple of Toastmasters sessions which helped a great deal. I am a confident public speaker."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Although I do not have experience presenting to large groups, I do have a great deal of experience presenting to my university classes and other volunteer groups. Every potential client is an opportunity to shine!"
5.
What is your personal mission statement?
The interviewer would like to know if you have a personal motto or mantra. Not everyone has a mission statement or personal mantra just off the cuff. In business, especially when entering leadership, this is an important question to ponder. Do you have a quote that inspires you or a saying that you grew up with that resonates with you?

Rachelle's Answer #1
"My mission is always to be a woman in business that others can look up to. It is important to me that I create a legacy of integrity."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"My mantra is that 'people who shine from within do not need the spotlight.' I feel that it is incredibly necessary to be a humble leader and I take this mission statement very seriously. I want my team to be in the spotlight rather than being the kind of leader that takes the credit for good work."
