Recently Asked HR Interview Question Answer and Tips – What would your first 30, 60, or 90 days look like in this role?

;

Start by explaining what you’d need to do to get ramped up. What information would you need? What parts of the company would you need to familiarize yourself with? What other employees would you want to sit down with? Next, choose a couple of areas where you think you can make meaningful contributions right away. (e.g., “I think a great starter project would be diving into your email marketing campaigns and setting up a tracking system for them.”) Sure, if you get the job, you (or your new employer) might decide there’s a better starting place, but having an answer prepared will show the interviewer where you can add immediate impact—and that you’re excited to get started.

30 60 90 day plans should be divided into segments–

Your first 30 days, ;which are usually focused on training and getting to know everyone (co-workers, other departments, customers, etc.)

The next 30 days ;(the 60-day part), ;which is usually the getting-up-to-speed portion, as well as getting feedback on your progress
The last 30 days ;(the 90-day part), ;which is where you set goals for accomplishing on your own (like going after new business, starting new projects, establishing new procedures, making improvements, increasing efficiency, or otherwise contributing to the growth of the company)

;If answering this interview question from an entry-level position:

– Describe how you will best utilize your training
– ;Focus on how you plan to build relationships with your coworkers
– Outline skills and experience that you would hope to put into practice
– If you are a manager or higher, you have a more extensive background.

If your position involves a team working under you:

– Go into detail about how you intend to interact with your new employees
– Talk about what steps you would take to gain their trust and respect
– Delineate a few specific teamworking goals relevant to the position
– This is essential for any manager’s success as you are only as good as the production of your team.

Understand what’s expected during the first three months on the job.
First, let’s take a look at what this question is actually asking. Why the numbers 30, 60 and 90? These numbers correspond to standard cut-offs for your first three months on the job—30 days, 60 days or 90 days. Interviewers ask this question for a number of reasons. They want to see how you think about ramping up in your new role, how fast you’ll complete the onboarding process and what types of goals and standards you hold yourself to, especially in a new environment.

This onboarding period may seem daunting, but it can be an exciting time, too. You will learn a lot about your duties, your supervisor, company culture and workplace etiquette. You also will learn a lot about yourself and how you fit into the larger organization.

Do your research.
Even if you’ve had an internship in the field before, you can’t really know what a job entails until you’ve worked full-time in the role. That doesn’t mean you can’t do your research to get a fuller picture. Here are some ideas for where to look for a dose of realism (and some healthy inspiration):

Job listings—Do a quick Google search for similar roles and titles to get a sense of what those responsibilities look like.
Employee resumes—Perusing the online resumes of young professionals in your intended field can be invaluable. Resumes provide more in-depth information than company profiles and bios. Again, start with people who are just a couple of years more experienced than you to see what they’ve accomplished.
Talk to someone—Arrange an informal meeting with someone in your intended field, preferably someone around your age and experience level. Explain that you would like to get started in the industry and have questions about what to reasonably expect during the first three months and the rest of the first year on the job.
Prepare your answer by outlining your goals for each month.
After you’ve studied up on what you may be doing at your job, think about what you can realistically accomplish during this initial period. What kinds of concrete goals can you set? What projects are you excited to take on? If possible, stick to quantifiable results. Then practice your answer to the interview question. Try to condense your response to 3-4 sentences.

Sample Answer: ;“In addition to getting to know the team and getting fully up to speed with the role, there’s a lot I want to accomplish during my first three months in the role of editor. During my first 30 days, I want to get a sense of our blog’s editorial goals and use those to create a new blog design. After 60 days, I want our blog redesign launched and to have at least 50 contributors writing for the website. After 90 days, I want to switch the efforts from building the team to tracking growth, and I’m hoping that we can have 100,000 unique visitors by then through utilizing our marketing channels and those of our contributors.”

Always have a backup answer ready.
If you don’t a clear idea of the exact goals for the position or what you would like to accomplish, there are some things you can touch on that are relevant for almost any role. This can serve as your backup answer and you should always have one ready.

Sample Answer: ;“Within 30 days, I plan to get to know the people I’ll be working with the most and to be comfortable with them. Within 60 days, I plan to have a solid understanding of the industry, the company and the competitive landscape so that I can hold my own in any conversation about the company. Within 90 days, I plan to meet the goals that have been set for me.”

11 New Employment Vacancies at Jordan University College (JUCO)

JUCO BACKGROUND AND HISTORY:
The religious Superiors of the congregations working in Tanzania agreed early on with the Salvatorian Mission Superior, Fr. Andrew Urbanski, SDS, that there was need for an Institution of Higher Education for their Religious members – especially for those who felt a calling to the presbyteral ministry.
To the great satisfaction of all concerned, preparations for such an institution began at Kola, in the town of Morogoro in Tanzania. Discussions concerning this project were initiated at the annual meeting of the Religious Superiors Association in Tanzania (RSAT) in 1988. Some time later it was clear that there was a need to have both a Philosophical and a Theological Department at the proposed institution.

On December 11, 1990, the Mission Chapter of the Salvatorian Mission in Tanzania agreed to work towards the organization of the Salvatorian Major Seminary in both philosophy and theology. It was decided that the Seminary’s patron would be the Founder of the Salvatorians, Fr. Francis Mary of the Cross Jordan. Permission was obtained by the Salvatorians in Tanzania to sponsor the project.
The Rt. Rev. Bishop Adrian Mkoba, Ordinary of the Morogoro Diocese (on February 22, 1988), and the Rt. Reverend Archbishop Anthony Mayala, then Chairman of the Tanzania Episcopal Conference (in his letter of March 2 of that year) on behalf of the Conference, gave the respective nihil obstat and their blessings. On September 2, 1990, the Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, blessed the cornerstone of this Seminary at his meeting with the clergy and religious, during his pastoral visit in St. Peter’s Church, Dar es Salaam.

NYU-CBA Virginia B. Toulmin Fellowship 2020-2021 for Women Leaders in Dance (Fully-funded)

Deadline: November 1, 2019
Applications for the NYU-CBA Virginia B. Toulmin Fellowship 2020-2021 for Women Leaders in Dance are now open. The Virginia B. Toulmin Fellowship for Women Leaders in Dance is a unique fellowship designed for women choreographers and composers that promotes broader gender equity in the field of dance.

These fellows work on projects that expand the way we think about the history, practice, and performance of dance. There is no expectation of a finished product. CBA Fellows are encouraged to ask questions and take risks. They gain colleagues they would not otherwise encounter. These engagements between artists and scholars, two communities that do not often intersect, strengthen and deepen the work of both.

The residency must occur during the NYU academic year (September 2020 – May 2021). Award durations vary by fellow and project needs. Applicants may request the amount of time that fits the project scope, between one month to one academic year.

Fellowship

  • $2,500 per week
  • Use of Center dance studio, offices, and conference rooms
  • Housing, as needed and available

  • Submit feedback on your fellowship as requested.
  • Note: At this time, The Center cannot commit to additional funding for collaborators. If a fellow decides to work with collaborators (e.g. designers, musicians, dancers, etc.), the fellow is expected to pay those collaborators out of his or her own fellowship.

Application

  • The application should reflect the applicant’s genuine aspirations and expertise. They expect scholars and artists to each demonstrate different strengths that are reflective of their training. Project proposals are not required to involve both scholarly and artistic inquiry. Successful proposals will focus on the project’s essential research questions.
