Do you have experience in corrective discipline and terminations?
Professional answer
I do have some. At my last position, our HR department took the lead on terminations, but I was in the room for everyone one of them. I did handle all small employee disciplinary actions. Larger issues were assisted by the HR department.

What was your biggest take-away from your post-secondary education?
Professional answers
I gained some really useful knowledge on the art of negotiation. No matter which role I end up in, I feel prepared in the way of great communication and negotiation.
I learned better time management skills. Yes, I learned a lot in my classes, but the change in scheduling and the format of my day was an eye opener. Learning how to manage my time, schedule, and deadlines is a skill that is necessary for any professional.

Question 5 of 11
Judging by your resume, you appear to be overqualified for this position. What would keep you here, if you were offered the position?
Professional answers
The job titles in my last 2 roles do make it appear that I am overqualified for the role. They were big titles but, rest assured, this position is very much in line with my current skill level.
I do not think that I am overqualified for this role. I do believe that I bring a lot to the table, but my last few roles were with smaller companies where everyone wore many hats and had time to handle more responsibility. I like the idea of focusing on one job for a change.
