Sample from the eBook

Questions: Why do you want to work as a secretary here (at our school, in our office), and not somewhere else?

Hint: You should focus on personal preferences to the institution, their goals and visions that resonate with your goals, or on the methods of work they use, their working environment. You should simply focus on something that distinguishes them from their competitors, something the hiring managers are proud of.

Having said that, interviewers are not stupid. They understand that a typical job seeker would be happy to get a secretary position in any institution that somehow resonates with their values, and offers a good salary and decent working conditions. However, you should do your best to convince them that their place is your first choice.

If you can not come up with anything better, say that the location is perfect, or pick other trivial reason for your choice.

Sample answers

– I have been reading about you in news for years, and I have been watching your campaigns closely on social media. You are my favorite NGO, I like your vision, and the way you allocate the resources to projects. When I spotted the job offer for a secretary, I didn’t hesitate for a second. I would love to belong to this team.

– Your office is just ten minutes away from my apartment. This is the main reason for my preferences. I believe it is good also for you, becasue if I can come to work quickly anytime you need me around.


Question: What do you want to accomplish on this position?

Hint: You should always have some goals on your mind, though it is not easy to find any major accomplishments in the profession of a secretary.

But you can focus on small things, or everyday achievements, such as helping the work to flow nicely, helping to improve the reputation of the company (with your excellent customer service and professional conduct in work), maintaining a good atmosphere in the workplace, etc. Simple everyday achievements, which happen to be extremely important for each company.

Sample Answers

– I do not seek any major achievements. If I help this company to prosper, if my boss enjoys their work, and if I help them to work effectively, it will make me happy. That’s all I want to accomplish as a secretary.

– Since this is my first job application, I look forward to learn new things, and to become a great administrative worker. I believe this position would be a good starting point for me. At the same time, however, I hope to help you enjoy your time in work, and reduce the workload, helping with administrative tasks, and with anything else you may need.

End of the sample

These were just two questions. You will find twenty in the book, and more:

  • Two winning interview strategies that will help you to stand out and get a job.
