What do you believe is the biggest culprit of reputation crisis, today?
The interviewer would like to understand what you believe to be the biggest driver of crisis for companies, today. Discuss how you feel the digital age has affected the way companies are viewed in the public eye. You could also address common factors that you see when it comes to reputations threats, today.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I believe that the biggest culprit of reputation crisis today remains an unclear vision. When a company seems to be split on their vision, their talking points, and their overall brand, that will be a significant weak spot. The moment something goes awry, this weak spot will grow and threaten the health of the company in its entirety."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"In today's digital age, I believe the biggest culprit of a reputation crisis is lack of planning when it comes to the social media and social networking side of a business. The internet is forever, and many companies still do not have clear branding and messaging strategy when it comes to their online footprint. These days, all it takes is one bad tweet that is misconstrued by the public, and a company could be facing a firestorm online."
2.
Are you applying for any other jobs?
The interviewer would like to know if they will need to compete with other companies when it comes to hiring you. It always puts a little bit of fire under the hiring manager if they are aware that you are actively looking for a new position. Tell the interviewer about your search so far without disclosing every single detail.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I am keeping an eye out for viable positions. Although I am not in the final stages with any other company, I am actively seeking a new position."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I am applying to other jobs, and am actively interviewing. I do have a strong interest in your role and am wondering what your timeline looks like for the next round of interviews?"
3.
Besides compensation, what do you value the most in the workplace?
Financial compensation aside, the interviewer would like to know what is most important to you when looking for a new job. Your answer will show the interviewer some direction when they are ready to make you an offer of employment. You can talk about health benefits, work-life balance, workplace culture, growth, or even continued education opportunities. The sky is the limit!

Rachelle's Answer #1
"What I value most in the workplace are growth opportunities. I am missing this in my current role and very much look forward to working with a company who will provide me with bigger moves as I prove myself."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"For me, the room for creativity and a flexible workspace is significant. This flex could include a great office where it's easy to collaborate, or the ability to work from home when needed."
4.
Have you ever broken a confidentiality agreement?
Yext will have confidentiality agreements for a variety of reasons. These could be to protect their trade secrets or to ensure that you do not bring clients over on the occasion that you leave their company. Talk to the interviewer about your thoughts on confidentiality agreements.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I never have, to my knowledge, broken a confidentiality agreement. Despite my reasons for leaving a position, I would never choose to hurt a previous employer in any way."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Confidentiality agreements are necessary and important to protect an organization. I understand the need for confidentiality and take those factors very seriously. I have never broken the trust of my employer."
5.
What is the worst thing a previous manager could say about you?
Nobody is a perfect employee! Think about some mistakes you have made at work or any suggestions for improvement received. If a manager were to provide you with feedback or criticism, what might they say? Keep your answer brief and be sure to finish on a positive note by discussing your willingness to improve and take constructive feedback.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"When I started my most recent job I had a pretty big learning curve. The software and my daily tasks were all very new to me. I made a lot of mistakes in the beginning because I felt rushed and wanted to learn as quickly as I could. My manager suggested I slow down and not worry so much about keeping up with the people who had been there for a while. He was understanding, and it helped me to learn that it's okay to take my time to avoid mistakes."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"The most critical thing a manager could say might be that I need to thicken up my skin a little. I always want to learn and improve, so I take comments very seriously and to heart when they come from someone I respect. Occasionally, this can dampen my morale when negative feedback is said. I know that I need to work on taking their feedback in stride. I already work on incorporating it immediately; I need to skip the middle step of letting it bring me down or letting others notice that it has brought me down."
