Question 4 of 25
By this time in your career, you should have advanced further. What has slowed down your career progression?
Professional Answers Preview
"I agree with you that my career progression has been slower than some. You will see that between 2005 - 2009 I worked for the same company without an increase in my job title. The company was too small to offer a promotion to me as the next level was directorship which I didn't have the educational credentials for. After this, from 2009-2012 I was on leave as I needed to care for my ailing parents. The growth since returning to work has been steady but those years were a bit of a standstill for me. I am ready to spring into action now, and forge ahead in my career as a lab assistant."
When an interviewer sees slow career progression on your resume, they will immediately want to determine whether this is by your own choice, any outside circumstances, or if you just are not motivated to create growth in your career. If your job has progressed slower than you wish, you must be honest with the interviewer when discussing this.
More Answer Examples
Entry Level Example
"I am happy with my progress as a lab assistant. My education did take me a bit longer to complete than I expected; however, I was working full time in tandem with my studies."
Experienced Example
"I have progressed comfortably in my career. Although it may not seem as advanced as some, I am content with my progression as it has offered me a manageable pace and the chance to take additional coursework related to my role as a laboratory assistant."

About Laboratory Assistant

August 18th, 2017

Laboratory assistants work in the medical field where they process specimens. These specimens are typically bodily fluids or other organic samples. Due to the potentially sensitive nature of the materials being handled, the lab assistant must closely adhere to well-defined policies and procedures. Accurate documentation is important. The work is typically done during normal business hours and performed in a laboratory. It's important for laboratory assistants to pay very close attention to detail and to follow directions precisely. Required qualifications vary by locale and typically require government-approved training and certification.

Vacancies for laboratory assistants may be found on universities' online career portals and sometimes even at job fairs focused on the medical industry. Labs may be associated with hospitals or universities. The interview will assess your ability to follow instructions, your clerical and data entry skills, and your knowledge of relevant standard procedures and best practices in your industry. Any lapses in procedure may have serious negative impacts. An analytical and procedure-oriented approach is most compatible with this job. You'll be expected to be familiar or at least comfortable with the computer systems and technology used in the course of your duties.

To prepare for the interview, think about the technical knowledge you obtained during your certification or education in this field. Laboratory assistants must meet strict deadlines while remaining accurate. You can give the interviewer confidence in your ability by talking about specific techniques that you've developed to help you maintain both quality and quantity of work. Explain it briefly and concisely in a step-by-step manner as if you were teaching it. By doing so, you're simultaneously showing that you're both a procedure-minded person and that you're diligent and organized. Make sure that you maintain up-to-date knowledge of equipment that's used in your field.
