  • Interview Tips: The Right Way To Answer "Tell Me About Yourself"

    Business Insider ^ | 06/10/2011 | Patricia Laya
    There are a couple questions that everyone dreads in an interview. "What is your greatest weakness?" "Where do you see yourself in five years?" and "Tell me about yourself." It's the default question (and the first) in most interviews, and to many candidates, it can feel like a trap. So we spoke with executive headhunters and career coaches about how best to answer this question. "They want to gauge how the person thinks," says Eileen Finn, president of executive search firm Eileen Finn & Associates in New York. Even though there is no one right answer, focusing on the past,...

    When interviewing for a job, we all want to put our best foot forward, but sometimes we end up putting it in our mouths instead. Even though you may feel comfortable chatting and making small talk with your interviewer, it’s best to leave some things unsaid. We checked in with experts to find seven things you should never say during an interview. 1.) Don't Compliment the Interviewer's Appearance in Any Way. Don’t say: “I love your skirt!”. 2.) Don’t Cry. Don’t say: “It was the hardest thing I ever went through, and I still break down just thinking about it.”...

    Oprah Winfrey taped her first joint interview since 2006 with President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama last week. A major coup -- until President Obama announced Sunday that U.S. Navy Seals had killed Osama Bin Laden. "Trying to decide what to do about tomorrow's show with prez that was taped last week. Show will feel dated because we taped last week. Not even a hint of Osama's demise," Winfrey Tweeted Sunday night. In the end, the show aired uncut without Winfrey explaining the turn of events since it was taped last Wednesday. The phrase "previously recorded" flashed across the screen...

    Is he a message control freak? See here and decide for yourself. Even Mediaite concedes Obama’s interview style is often so disciplined — and prone to filibuster on even the most basic questions... To be fair, it's hard to really tell how exactly things went down, because the video is heavily edited. Also, Presidents do have to have a firm grip on what they're trying to say. However, to the chagrin of the liberals who support him, Obama ain't God either. What he says can and should be challenged not matter how much of a local yokel the reporter...

    President Barack Obama got into an annoyed confrontation with Texas's WFAA TV reporter Brad Watson after being asked serious questions for the length of an interview. At the end of the sit down, which included Mr. Watson interrupting Mr. Obama several times, the President took Mr. Watson to the side and said, "Let me finish my answers the next time we do an interview, all right?" WFAA, also known as News 8, is a television station out of Texas, a state that Mr. Obama lost in 2008. According to CNN, Watson was self-absorbed and more interested in himself. According to...

    Human Events ^ | February 18, 2011 | Jason Mattera
    You may have missed it, but this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) didn’t just play host to a myriad of presidential candidates, but to famed actor Richard Dreyfuss too. Dreyfuss didn’t have a speaking slot at the premier conservative gathering, but rather was milling around the conference with his friend Roger Simon of PJTV. Is the star of Jaws, Close Encounters, and W even a conservative? No, not in the least. In an impromptu interview with HUMAN EVENTS at CPAC, Dreyfuss strangely described his political leanings as “libo-conservo-rado-middle-of-the-road-o.” When asked how he felt being around so many right-of-center individuals,...

    If I were Bill Daley, the new White House chief of staff, my first act would be to surgically attach a teleprompter to Chairman Obama. It's pretty obvious that our Dear Leader is helpless without one, since he's almost as gaffe-prone as Joe Bite Me. Every time Obama goes off 'prompter, another FUBAR moment occurs. (Like getting outed as a socialist by a plumber, calling cops stupid, calling Republicans hostage takers, just to name a few public relations disasters.) I'd call the Failed Messiah an empty suit, but that would be unfair to empty suits the world over. (They might...

    Fox News host Bill O’Reilly sat down for an interview with President Barack Obama in the White House before the start of the Super Bowl Sunday afternoon. The turmoil in Egypt and the recent decision against his signature health care law dominated the 14 minute interview. O’Reilly thanked the President for his role in protecting Fox News journalists who were attacked and beaten in Egypt. In calling for an "orderly transition" of power in Egypt, Obama said Egypt could not go "back to what it was". While telling O'Reilly that the U.S. cannot dictate what Egypt must do, the President...

The letter “just made me shake my head till it nearly fell off.” But it isn’t rare. In fact, Laermer says, it’s typical. “Lazy...

A Fox News spokeswoman confirmed reports that the president would sit down with the conservative pundit for a pre-game interview before the Super Bowl on the Fox broadcast network. The sit-down will be a moment of outreach between Obama and the network, which his administration has clashed with during the past two years over the network's coverage of the White House. It's also the second straight year Obama will use one of the most watched television events of the...

Christine is running for Vice President Joe Biden's open Senate seat in Delaware. Because Biden has vacated his term, her reign as Republican Senator would begin immediately on November 3 and the Senate make-up now at 59 Democrats, generally filibuster proof,...

During WWII, he signed the paper from Himmler that marked the beginning of the Nazi "Final Solution" against the Jews.

    Ben Bernanke may or may not succeed in saving the economy, but at least he has the courage to try — and the honesty to tell the truth. The same cannot be said of our elected officials. Congress is buried under a crushing surplus of cynicism, while the White House seems paralyzed by a deficit of courage. An expert on the Great Depression, Bernanke is determined not to be the Federal Reserve chairman who allows the nation to plummet into Great Depression II. Since our political leaders can't be bothered to do what urgently needs to be done — stimulate...

    Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told CBS in an interview to be aired Sunday that he’s not ruling out purchasing more bonds to aid the U.S. economy, the network said in a release Friday. In an interview taped Tuesday in Columbus, Ohio, Bernanke defended the central bank’s program to buy $600 billion in U.S. Treasury notes, which was attacked by senior politicians in the U.S. and abroad. Top Republicans charge the bond purchases, due to end in June, could bring high inflation and may weaken the U.S. dollar excessively.

A: A lot of small businesses are not seeking credit, because, you know, because their business is not doing well, because the economy is slow. Others are not qualifying for credit, maybe because the value of their property has gone down. But some also can’t meet the terms and conditions that banks are setting.

    President Barack Obama should make the most of his "Daily Show" appearance on Wednesday night - charming the pants off Jon Stewart and the crowd, as he did when he showed up there two years ago. It's a terrific show, Stewart is a great interviewer and Obama makes good television. Then, the President should cancel all future trivial media appearances. While they may have kept him personally popular, in broad terms they've degraded the Obama brand. Obama's handlers were supposed to be smarter than this. They were supposed to use his celebrity strategically to advance his agenda. Instead, they've been...

    Daily Bell: What is your overwhelming political concern these days? Is it financial? Economic? Sociopolitical? What are you most worried about for America? Steve Forbes: Right now my biggest concern is misbegotten ideology and economic thinking from Washington. What we are experiencing now is what you might call a form of soft-core socialism or quasi-Third World socialism where the government doesn't take over industries but, in effect, dominates industries so that you can't do anything without the permission of the federal government. You see it in health care, in finance and in the new so-called financial reform bill. I think...
  • SPIEGEL Interview with Iraq's Ayad Allawi 'Every Corner in the Region Is Frightened

    Spiegel ^ | 8/29/10
    In a SPIEGEL interview, Ayad Allawi, Iraq's former and possibly future prime minister, discusses the withdrawal of US troops, the power struggle in Baghdad and the "very high possibility" of a new war in the Middle East. Three bodyguards are sitting in front of his hotel suite in Kuwait, their guns bulging from beneath their suits. It's Ramadan and the men are fasting. But Ayad Allawi isn't, and he asks for an espresso. Allawi doesn't even create the impression that he lives according to religious rites. And that's also one reason why, nearly six months after the Iraqi election, he...

    Long before last week's revelation that a large and growing chunk of Americans believe that the President is Muslim - and that only about one in three Americans correctly identify him as Christian - Barack Obama was battling misperceptions about his religion. (snip) With Thursday's Pew poll showing that nearly one in five Americans think Obama is Muslim, our conversation from 2008 - conducted by phone while the future president sat aboard his grounded campaign plane - has become relevant again. Here's what Obama told me in 2008 when I mentioned the false rumors that he was Muslim:

    The GovTrack Blog ^ | July 6, 2010 | Josh Tauberer
    Although I’m a programmer, I also consider myself a journalist. GovTrack reports on what is happening in Congress day by day — even if the reporting is just a nice presentation of a lot of raw, unedited facts about legislation. But I often lament the lack of a human touch, which is why in January I started GovTrack Insider, now on a bit of a hiatus. I need your help. The nation needs your help. We all need to be reporters. So here it is: The Summer Citizen Reporter Contest......more

    RFE/RL ^ | July 27, 2010
    July 27 is the 30th anniversary of the death of Iran's last imperial ruler, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. The shah left Iran in December 1978 after 37 years in power. After living in Morocco, the United States, Mexico, and Panama, he went to Egypt where he died in a Cairo hospital on July 27, 1981. His body was laid to rest in the Al-Refai Mosque in Cairo. His wife, Farah Pahlavi, spoke to Radio Farda's Jean Khakzad about the incidents of those times. RFE/RL: I would like to ask you whether it's true that the shah was unaware of the illness...
  • Mystery SC Candidate's Bizarre Keith Olbermann Interview (Bush's fault/plant?)

    Mystery SC Candidate's Bizarre Keith Olbermann Interview What the hell? At this point, it's the only reaction we can have to Alvin Greene, the unemployed veteran who beat out a much more-qualified opponent in the South Carolina Democratic Senate primary. Watch his halting Countdown interview for yourself. It wasn't much different than other interviews he's given on television and in print. These are all marked by a frustrating vagueness about every aspect of his almost non-existent campaign. Tonight he told Olbermann his campaigning consisted of door-to-door canvassing and a couple of "informal meetings." When Olbermann asked how, given his lack...
