To help the clients of KRA kick off successful program management campaigns, you will need to have the ability to draft program charters. Do you have firsthand experience in developing program charters during your career?
In understanding that a program charter is a written document that outlines the idea, scope and result of a program or project, speak to your interviewer about the importance of drafting a charter in seeking approval from leadership for the program. Make sure your interviewer know that you understand the importance of the document in obtaining funding for the program and setting timelines with the management team of an organization. Be sure to hit on any direct experience you have in writing program charters and your ability to do this with clients.

Ryan's Answer
"Having written project and program charters for many years while consulting in the retail industry, I would bring a great amount of detail and knowledge to your clients here at KRA. Effective charters clearly outline the overall idea of a project or program, lay out the entire scope of the program and then discusses what the ideal end result of the program will be. In my time creating charters, I know that my success rate for approval from leadership was increased greatly and my ability to obtain funding for my clients to utilize was greatly increased. This helped ensure that all resources necessary to make the program a success were available."

What kind of people do you enjoy working with?
Culture fit is a critical factor when looking for a new position. Talk to the interviewer about the types of personalities that you best work with. Be sure to remain positive and avoid using this as an opportunity to speak poorly of previous colleagues.

Ryan's Answer #1
"I best enjoy working with individuals who are driven, positive, energetic, and take accountability for their work. I do have the ability to work with a large variety of individuals; however, these are the ideal traits I would see in future colleagues."
Ryan's Answer #2
"Some other great characteristics of co-workers:

- Encouraging
- Helpful
- Engaged
- Positive
- Hard-working
- Punctual
- Reliable"

If you are hired for this position here at KRA, what do you think the biggest hurdle for you would be from the start?
For this question, you can showcase your research that you've done on both KRA and the role you are interviewing for by being upfront and honest about what you feel would be the biggest learning curve for you if hired for the position and giving your plan for how you would approach this hurdle. In your answer, make sure that you highlight your skills and abilities in making a molehill out of a mountain on your way to success in this role.

Ryan's Answer #1
"As you can see from my resume, most of my career experience is in the food industry. If fortunate enough to be hired for this position, the biggest area for learning for me would be the finance side of other industries like technology, telecommunications and healthcare. From day one, I would begin by thoroughly research the clients here at KRA and speaking with as many industry experts that I know through business networking. While learning the ins and outs of other industries is the biggest learning curve for me, I see it as a great opportunity for me to become more proficient and effective in the work that I'd be doing for you."
Ryan's Answer #2
"While this may sound funny to you at first, I think the biggest challenge for me from the start will be adapting to the great corporate lifestyle and culture here at KRA. When I saw this position being open for applicants and I did my research, I was extremely excited to hear about the flexibility and openness to the ideas of your staff members. I've been working for six years in an environment that is very opposite of an open culture for new ideas and for me personally, it will feel foreign for me to bring new ideas to the team here and have them be accepted."
4.
With your experience as a Human Resources professional, do you have any niche areas of the field that you'd be most interested in providing consultative services in?
As an organization that provides consulting services in Human Resources across many different industries, KRA is looking to build a diverse pool of consultants to help clients in the many different areas of HR. For this question, your interviewer will be looking to get a sense of both where most of your experience has been in the field and also where your personal interest falls. Speak openly about both for your interviewer so they can have the best sense possible about where you fit among the needs of the company and their clients.

Ryan's Answer #1
"As you can see from my resume, I have many years of experience as an HR Generalist and Manager where I developed a very broad spectrum of experience across payroll, hiring, performance and HR administration. In the recent four years, I have had a majority of focus in recruitment and retention for management level positions. If I were lucky enough to join the team here at KRA, my best areas to work with your clients on would be recruitment and retention of staff. On top of those areas, I still have a great interest in performance management and I bring a great deal of experience in that realm."
Ryan's Answer #2
"Having been an HR professional for over ten years, I feel like I would bring a great amount of experience and knowledge to your clients here at KRA. My preferred niche to work in is total rewards, including comp and benefits. I have a multitude of experience in the administration of benefit plans, payroll systems and new compensation policy implementation. I think that this experience would pay off well for clients that are in need of a reset in these areas."

This role will put you face to face with leaders of our clients and have you coaching them on how to coach performance related issues. What insight will you bring to the area of performance evaluation and development?
In this role with KRA, part of your role would be working with clients on performance management and optimizing the performance of their staff. Be prepared to talk about any aspects of perfomance management that you have been a part of during your career as well as speaking about hte importance of the bigger picture of performance manageemnt in respect to teh performance of an organization. Another important thing to discuss is anything pertaining to coaching those that will be coaching others.

Ryan's Answer #1
"During my career, I have been involved in the creation of two different performance management system creations and both have provided a ton of insight to me looking to move into this role. I have been a part of creating effective evaluation tools that are used to drill down to the KSA's required for a particular job. This process entailed detailed job evaluations to help in identifying key performance measures for each job. The tool creating process also offered me the chance to design and create soem great feedback guidelines that hiring managers were trained on. I think this experience will pay off very well for your clients that are in need of creating or revamping their current performance management systems."
Ryan's Answer #2
"In my current role, I have worked with our management and leadership staff on education and training for a new performance management system that my organization began using two years ago. While the technical side of learning the electronic evaluation program was very important, our leaders found the background knowledge around the evaluation process even more helpful. During that training, we talked about the importance that effective performance management played in reducing turnover and boosting employee satisfaction and gave our leaders great tips and tricks to use with their staff. I'd love to bring these things here to work with teh clients of KRA."
