A List of Tough Job Interview Questions For Tough Times

Click Here!
The information presented here is designed to provide a benefit to anyone who must answer questions during the dreaded job interview. The main point presented here is that the key to a successful job interview is preparation. The following discussion expounds on this key point.

While some tough job interview questions take us off guard, others we can see coming a mile away. How we answer job interview questions will make the difference between getting and not getting the job. We all have questions that we'd rather not be asked during an interview. But how can one prepare completely for a tough interview?

The answer to this question really comes down to intense preparatory work. In a nutshell, do your homework. Make sure that you know your resume thoroughly and expect questions to come from your work history. Also, expect questions about the company you want to work for and the type of future you want in that company, and finally, expect questions about you. You should use several large lists of questions in preparation for the interview. Below, you will find a list of tough job interview questions, which should be helpful in preparation for the job interview.

While the questions below are pretty standard and can be expected at most job interviews, you should also create your own questions. In creating your questions in preparation for an interview, you really need to sit down and think through what you would ask if you were the interviewer. Remember that the person interviewing you has a job to do as well. If you can provide a good answer to most of the questions below, and to the questions you have created, you have increased the probability of obtaining the job you are seeking.

Obviously during a job interview, regardless of your personality, you need to be congenial and polite. Try not to appear nervous as well. Most importantly, try to appear confident in yourself but not to the point of appearing cocky. Remember, the interviewer is not only trying to select the best candidate for the job, they also want to be sure that you will be compatible with other employees you will be working with. Also, remember that the interviewer is trying their best to find any red flags that may be present in your past work history.

The following is a list of questions you can expect at most job interviews. You most likely will not be asked all of these questions, but you can expect some of them. Many of these questions come from About.com, and some were created by our staff.

What are your salary requirements - both short-term and long-term?

What will you do if you don't get this position?

Once again, the key to a successful job interview is preparation. When you are completely prepared, you will tend to be less nervous. Of course, it is highly likely you will be presented with a question or two that you did not expect. This is why preparation also entails having the knowledge base that you can expect the interviewer will tap into.

Here I am not talking about the knowledge needed to do the job. That should be a given anyway, otherwise you would have not been asked to be at the interview. Here I am talking about knowing yourself and your attitudes, and being able to present your attitudes in a way the interviewer can appreciate. It does not hurt to let the interviewer know what really makes you tick, if the interview goes in that direction.

Make sure that you display an enthusiastic attitude. Make sure you present to the interviewer a willingness to learn and a desire to advance in the company you are about to potentially work for. You do not want to appear as if you are lacking seriousness and definitely do not appear cavalier. Try to appear enthusiastic and positive in a mature and professional way. If you are naturally an enthusiastic and positive type of person, then half the battle is won. The point is to be your self, but try to present the best of who you are.

Remember this, many employers prefer a less educated candidate with fewer credentials who is bright and willing to learn, over one who is more prepared but lacks the proper attitude. A good example of this is the entrepreneur who wants to launch a new business. For him or her who is starting a new venture, hiring someone who is bright and has the right attitude is extremely important. More important then previous education. In this case, the entrepreneur is looking for someone who is not afraid to take risks and is very much goal oriented. Here it is very important that you display to the interviewer your ability to work as part of a team. The 9 to 5 type worker who expects to work basically the same hours 5 days a week would not fit well here. And the interviewer needs to know this.

To conclude, in the end, most interviewers are looking for the right attitude for the job they are trying to fill. If you also have the right credentials along with the right attitude, then your chances are increased tremendously. If you can answer most of the above questions, display an enthusiastic attitude, and present yourself in the best possible way, this should result in you obtaining the job you are seeking.


Discovering Fraudulent Appraisals During Foreclosure

Discovering Fraudulent Appraisals During Foreclosure
by: Nick Adama


Without question, one of the enablers in many fraudulent mortgage lending schemes has been a crooked appraiser willing to give a property any value that the Realtor, mortgage broker, or lender wanted. The real estate bubble could not have been inflated to such a high level without the complicity of many appraisers who threw all conservatism out the window and began giving properties ridiculous values in order to help secure loans.

Now, with the housing market collapsing all around us, these appraisers have had to go back to valuing homes at more reasonable levels. However, this leaves many homeowners out in the cold, having received inflated appraisals just a few years ago and now finding out their homes were never worth that amount. What recourse, though, do these borrowers have, especially when they fall into foreclosure ?

The degree of appraisal inflation and fraud has been found to be astronomical in too many cases already. Homeowners have discovered that their home's value was inflated by up to 1,000% of its non-bubble price. The typical mortgage insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) is inflated by 30-50% in order to raise prices of property on first-time home buyers and low income borrowers.

So clearly, there is a problem with a large number of appraisals, but homeowners may have trouble holding the individual appraiser or his company liable for the inflated value. However, there are a number of different claims that can be brought against an appraiser that blatantly misrepresented the actual fair market value of a home, especially if the borrowers relied on that appraisal in their decision to buy or refinance.

The most obvious claim borrowers may be able to bring against an appraiser is fraud due to the misrepresentation of the home's value. While valuing a home is sometimes just as much art as science, obviously using inappropriate comparable sales or making unreasonable adjustments to justify a higher value can be a clear case of fraud.

The only problem with this claim that homeowners may find is that the conditions may be hard to meet. For example, the borrowers will need to show all nine elements are present for a fraud claim to be made. Unfortunately, this may be easier said than done, and homeowners may want to contact an attorney to discuss the potential of a fraud case in more depth. These nine elements are the following:

1. representation of an existing fact.
2. the fact is material.
3. the representation of the fact is false.
4. the speaker knows it is false.
5. the speaker intends the listener acts on the knowledge.
6. the listener is ignorant of the falsity.
7. the listener relies on the truth of the fact.
8. the listener has a right to rely on it.
9. damages are suffered by the listener.

Far more promising as a claim against appraisers is state Unfair and Deceptive Acts and Practices (UDAP) statutes. This claim is also somewhat easier to make. The reliance on the misrepresentation does not have to be show, and some of the other conditions are also loosened. Homeowners should contact a lawyer or do some research on their state's UDAP laws, however, to find out all of the relevant information.

There are also a number of other claims that can be made against an appraiser, either in or out of foreclosure. Depending on the circumstances of the case, some of these include violations of state licensing laws, civil conspiracy, fraudulent concealment, and civil RICO claims. Again, it may be in the homeowners' best interests to speak with legal counsel or research these issues in depth before making a claim.

Far too many homeowners were given the most expensive mortgages they qualified for and their home values were inflated to justify the large loans. Appraisers played a role in these transactions, and many of the most corrupt may have engaged in acts that carry significant legal liability. Especially in cases where a lender pushes homeowners into foreclosure, doing some research on these issues and holding the appraiser accountable may be called for.
