Help: I Need Your Answers To A Question For My Interview Tomorrow

Post by Sunrise on Fri Mar 25, 2011 9:42 pm

I need to pick your brains - I have an in-person interview tomorrow for a temporary job (probably until September). If they ask me about seeking full-time employment and if I get a job offer from another employer what will I do?

To me it is obvious that I would quit the temp job but I don't want to tell them that.

HELP! What is a good answer to this question? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Smile

I would tell them I am comfortable with making a committment through September or October and don't foresee anything interfering with that. I would keep looking for full time (discreetly) and bail if full time comes along. At this point you have to look out for yur own best interests.

You answer like you will be committed to the job for the term offered and will do your best period! You dont owe them crap so don't show your hand, get the job and when something better comes, jump for it. They don't care about you so why should you care about them? Play your cards you have in hand now.

I agree with Boonie. If you are entering as a contract "temp" worker the worst thing you could even hint at would be any thoughts of ending the contract early.

I would tell them that you know the terms of this contract, will see it to the end, will do it above and beyond their expectations, and best case you would hope would be it might become a contract to hire position in the end.

Nothing else, Sunrise. Seriously. This still does not bind you to the full term but be careful because prior jobs and endings tend to haunt.

(edit)
p.s. When I said I agreed with Boonie, I did not mean that I disagreed with Need2Bworking. That was good advice also.

Remember that depending on the state, the employer can just say "bye bye" without a reason. So keep the playing field level and don't think too far ahead. Much luck to you.
