OUR COACH SAYS
Example #1
"I am currently unemployed and am willing to start as soon as needed."
Example #2
"Could you share with me your ideal start date? I am happy to be flexible. However, I will need to give at least two weeks' notice to my current employer."
Example #3
"I am currently looking for a career change within a 6-week turnaround timeline after an offer letter is signed. This timeline would give me enough time to smoothly transition my team and help to find and train my replacement."
Example #4
"I need to give my employer two weeks' notice. Due to my length of employment, it is possible that I may need to work an additional week if they were to request it of me to aid in the transition to the next content manager, but I am available immediately following. Can you clarify your timeline for me?"
Example #5
"I would need to give my current store the courtesy of two weeks' notice, but I am available anytime after that! Looking forward to getting started!"
Example #6
"I would need to give the customary two weeks' notice to my current company so that they could choose if they want me to stay and transition accounts or make it my last day. But, out of courtesy to them, I need to let them make that final decision."
Example #7
"I plan to finish out this school year so that I can offer my students a clean transition. Will this timeframe work for you?"
Example #8
"As a professional courtesy, I would like to give my current employer two weeks' notice. I could start anytime after that."
Example #9
"I can quit my job today and start tomorrow!"
Example #10
"I am currently unemployed and am willing to start as soon as needed."

About Our Approach to Q&As
Our interview questions are created by writers, most of whom have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with the companies, careers or schools they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We strive to match our experts' background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
