Sample Answer
Young people need to prepare themselves when they begin looking for jobs. In this article, the job selection procedures used and questions asked will be focused, which hopefully shall be useful guidelines for the new jobseekers. There are two types of written procedures namely extended writing tasks and multiple choices. First, extended writing tasks involve writing a longer piece of work in Chinese or in English, the task should always be something that they might have to do in the company. This is a very practical assessment of candidates writing ability and can test whether the candidate can handle the job language wise. Second, multiple-choice tests require candidates to choose an answer from several options given. The advantage is easy to mark and able to find out the personalities of candidates. Apart from written procedures, there are also oral ones which include multiple-candidate interviews, role-plays and individual interviews. For multiplecandidate interview, it involves two to four candidates being interviewed at one time by two or more interviewer. It lasts about 1-2 hours, can by conducted in Cantonese, English or Putonghua. This helps save time for interviewers, allows easy comparison of candidates and job applicants can be assessed on their oral language abilities. For role-play, it involves 2-4 candidates getting together and performing tasks. This also helps save time for interviewers and is good for observing candidates problemsolving and decision-making skills and allows observation of personal interaction. For individual interview, it involves one candidate alone in a room answering questions of the interviewer. It is the best way to go as the interviewer can focus one candidate in depth, ask follow-up questions and assess job applicants oral language ability. Finally, there are also some informal procedures say extensive multipurpose visits. The candidate is invited to spend several full days with the companys staff to have relaxed chats, lunch and dinner, recreational activities. Employer can get and excellent picture of the whole candidate, his/her personality, social skills, education, professional skills, goals can all be assessed.

Regarding the questions to be asked by the interviewers, the most common topics of questions involve experience, work habits and personality. There are two forms of questions namely closed questions and open questions. The former one, on the face, requires either yes or no answer. In order to answer it well, the candidates should elaborate the question by giving more information than a simple yes or no. The answer should be informative, interesting and polite open questions. For open questions, they encourage candidates to give information and tend to begin with word like what, why and how. When answering such questions, make sure that what one says is relevant to the question and should avoid exaggerating answers. Wherever possible, make sure the answer is related to the contents of the curriculum vitae. The above illustrates the major job selection procedures and questions asked. No matter which selection procedure will be used by employers, new job seekers have to prepare themselves in order to get the job.
