Good morning. It’s Sunday, June 17, 2018 and this is your first early morning Jobs briefing!

In today’s Jobs news: Wide Orbit looking to fill several positions, PAC 12 is seeking a Communications Director and Alex Wellen has been appointed President and General Manager of Discovery Inc.’s Motor Trend Group.

Cyn 3 is brought to us today by Laura Bishop, Talent Acquisition, First Media US.
3 important things you should ask in an interview 
  • “What does the day-to-day look like in this role?” – I am constantly in shock at how many people make it through interview rounds and never ask what their daily life will entail! 
  • “What does it take to be successful in this job?”  What’s your measure of success? – might as well ask for the answers before the test! 
  • “What’s the management style of the company and my direct leader?” I love this question because there is no “right” answer a company can just dish out. They can be vague but that’s your opportunity as a candidate to dig in. How your employer handles stress, how they reward success, how they critique can all DRASTICALLY change how you feel about your job
Inspirational quote: “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” –Neale Donald Walsch
