The interviewer would like to know the extent of your experience with asbestos. Discuss any time you have worked with building inspections that involve asbestos, supervised asbestos abatement contractors, collected asbestos air samples, or did an onsite analysis of asbestos air sample cassettes.
Do you have the skills to perform air, soil, or water sampling? Do you bring experience in the oversight of subcontractors, and health and safety monitoring activities? These experiences can be considered an advantage and can help you beyond the closed doors of a laboratory.
"I have worked on approximately three asbestos focused cases in my career. I would rate my level of experience still as a beginner compared to others; however, I am more than willing to gain further knowledge on this topic."
"I have not worked in any asbestos based projects; however, did complete a unit of asbestos while obtaining my Bachelor of Science degree. I look forward to learning more about the topic of asbestos."
"I have experience with asbestos from a few projects where I supervised asbestos abatement contractors. My experience is at an intermediate level, and I look forward to advancing this."
