Technical trainers provide the essential service of training a company's employees in new technology. Good candidates must have extensive knowledge in the field and have the curiosity and drive to constantly learn about new technology. Interview questions may include walking through how you would develop a lesson plan or a teaching simulation. Employers are also looking for strong leadership skills and the ability to effectively communicate to people one-on-one or in large groups.
If you are in charge of 30 people and there were 5 that were doing really well, 10 that were mediocre and 5 that were just not doing their job and not putting in any effort, how would you effectively better the situation?
Fire the bottom 5 and hire 5 new people.
I would find my last 10 employees :)
I would figure out the 'WIIFMs' for the 5 not putting in effort, and come up with a POA for them in a one-o-one session. Make the 5 good ones take some responsibility for the 10 mediocre associates, which would inculcate peer learning and inter- team interactions.
