### IT Consultant at FDM Group was asked...

Feb 10, 2013
 Three things occur at once. A baby is crying, a tea kettle is whistling, and the phone is ringing. In which order will you take of the problems and why?3 AnswersTake the kettle off so you can hear the caller once you answer the phone. Do these both and you've removed the likely causes of the baby's crying.Check on the baby in case its a life/death situation then pick up the call because it could be an emergency then deal with the kettle afterwards since its highly unlikely that it could be a lif/death situationTurn off the kettle, attend to the baby, and let the phone go to voice mail. Turn off the kettle first because it would be too risky to hold the baby near a stove in operation with steam coming from the kettle. Attend to the baby because once you have removed environmental risks, it is the most critical situation and most immediately resolvable. If the phone cannot be answered before the baby's crying has been resolved, delegate the task of answering to voice mail, and then answer the voice mail at the earliest possible chance.

 Do you consider yourself lucky to have a job in this economy.4 AnswersI felt lucky to get the interview.that's a real nasty question by the interviewer. i would respond with a question, such as "what do you mean?""Not really. Most people I know in this industry are employed." Or something to that effect. The idea is that you want to humbly imply that you (and the people you associate with) are "good performers", who of course would never get laid off! Admitting you are unemployed and that you know lots of people who are too is like painting "LOSER" on your forehead.Show More ResponsesI would answer "No, there are always jobs out there. They may not be the jobs I want, or pay what I want, but employment can be found anywhere. Human civilization existed for thousands of years without 'jobs', it was called survival, you grew what you needed, killed what you needed, built what you needed. Do I feel lucky that I have a job, no. Do I feel lucky that I'm able to survive, yes."

 What's your price?3 AnswersI think that is something the employer decides.When forced to state salary requirements, immediately respond by asking for the company's range for that position. If they block that, tell them exactly your gross salary in last year and your understanding of the range for the particular title in the industry and that you "hope" the offer will be in the range of \$ dollars to \$ dollars to align with industry / regional location standards.If the ball is back in your court for being the first to give a number show them that you did some homework and give the (25th - 90th percentile) or some range from Salary.com, Robert Half, Dept. of Labor or another outside source and show willingness to be flexible about benefits. Part of your research is to get the annual cost estimate of standard benefits and perks.
