Exxonmobil Interview Questions!

Yay! Just had my Exxonmobil interview on the Phone!

Can't say how well it went but I can tell you what did they ask!

So here it goes!

1) Analytical skils are important in the things we do. Give me an example of a time that you showed good analytical skills.

2) Problems can potentially have many solutions. Give me an example of a time when you had to decide between two solutions to a problem.

3) People have different perspectives. Give an example of a time when your perspective differed from someone elses.

4) Give an example of a time when you had to motivate your team.

5) Give an example of a time when you failed or almost failed.


Strategy to answer the questions!

First is the type of questions. Read my blogposts on interview skills for each type of question.

Question 1 is a technical skills question.
Quesiton 2 is also a technical skills question.
Question 3 is a team work question
Question 4 is a communication skills question
Question 5 is a biggest regret question

Secondly, how to answer them!

Follow this simples structure, Remember PREP STAR

Point - eg. I am good at analytical skills
Reason - I do reseach, find out more things than needs to be done etc.
Evidence -
     Situation - Give a situation, what was going on? How about a story?
     Task - What did you need to do?
     Action - How did you handle it?
     Result - How was the out come?
Point - make the point again!

Following these simple rules will take you miles! All d best!

YIP KUM FOOK (MCA GOMBAK CHAIRMAN) MAKES BUDDHIST & MCA SHAMEFUL!


敬爱的马来亚佛总理事先生Buddhist Maha Vihara, Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia佛寺理事先生以及佛教信徒.

自从Yip Kum Fook (MCA Gombak Chairman)当任主席, 有预谋的迫走本地和尚(吉兰丹), 而遠聘缅甸和尚, 当任主持之后Samnak Sambodhi Thai Buddhist Temple No: 19 Jalan 38 Taman Desa Jaya, Kepong 52100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia(暹廟)就一直发生种种的是是非非, 以引起方民間議論纷纷.

其因是Yip Kum Fook (MCA Gombak Chairman)所领导的理事会, 勾结外耒的缅甸和尚, 以啇業経营, 不依佛法的精神办事, 只借宗教之名捞取权和私利所引起………. 最近又自行一套商业手法, 规定任和人, 若想出家当和尚修道者, 必先供给RM400大元, 否则免谈. 這种啇業手法, 已引起广大的信徒愤怒而不满.

Samnak Sambodhi Thai Buddhist Temple (暹廟)是佛总之联会, 而身佛堂之主席Yip Kum Fook (MCA Gombak Chairman)不以佛陀的教誨, 修心養性, 却反其道而行, 接着权势, 无悪不做, 三妻四妾, 骗财骗色, 破坏別人的家庭.....现在他的排聞满天飞, 不但给佛寺帶耒不好的名声, 也間接的耻辱佛教信仰者.

所从我们祈望马来亚佛总与Buddhist Maha Vihara, Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia理事同仁, 给以关注, 共創義举, 维护佛法

此致, 并
祝安康, 工作愉快.

Please translate in Bahasa Malaysia and English, and send to everyone, Thanks
