1.
This position aside, which California Chamber Of Commerce department would you work with if you were given the opportunity?
In public works, there are a variety of areas in which you can work, including public recreational areas such as parks and green spaces. Public works can also include the care of community centers and government-owned building. Transport infrastructure and roads are often considered public works as well. In addition to these, public services such as water supply, sewage treatment, and electrical grids fall under the umbrella of the public works. The interviewer would like to know, aside from the role to which you have applied, what other areas of public works catch your attention. Discuss any other interests that you have.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I have a variety of interests and, aside from this position, would be happy to learn more about water supply and treatment. I believe that water supply is one of the most important services we can provide to the public. It's important to me that I understand how water treatment processes work."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Although my primary interest is in the landscaping and beautification of public spaces such as parks and green spaces, I do have an interest in roads and infrastructure. If there were an opportunity to learn about other public works services at California Chamber Of Commerce I would choose roads and bridges. It's fascinating to me how the city comes to decisions on road expansions and more."
2.
Why would you rather work in the public works sector versus the private sector?
There is a significant difference between public works and working in the private sector. Public works often offer better pay. There is generally more job security, excellent benefits, and other perks such as a pension. However, the private sector may offer faster growth, better tech, and other perks. Discuss with the interviewer why you are choosing to find a role in the public sector versus private.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"Each sector, private or public, come with their challenges; however, I feel that the offering from the public works sector better fits my needs. There is more job security, and opportunities for competitive benefits and pension; all factors that I consider as I raise and support my family."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I have spent time comparing public and private sector work, as I want to begin my career on the right foot. A recent Fraser Institute report showed me that public works jobs pay more, on average, but also offer more job security in unionized and non-unionized roles. Starting my career, it's important to me that I build a secure future for myself. For those reasons, public sector work became the clear choice."
3.

Public services never stop running. Are you willing to work a double shift, weekends, evenings, overtime, and holidays?
Depending on the role, and whether or not this position is unionized, you may be asked to work overtime, doubles, evenings, weekends, and more. Before you blindly agree to work any hours, make sure you are clear on expectations.
