Week Six Assignment: Application Case: The Out-of-Control Interview 1. As Maria Fernandez being a bright, popular and well informed mechanical engineer, who graduated with an engineering degree from State University in June 2003. With this scenario, the overall experience with the interview was very stressful and it made the interview a disaster even though it was a stress interview. Maria has always expected a job which can evaluate her working capabilities to challenge her technical skills and expertise, so firms like Apex Environmental which is a well-known and a structured firm is where she would like to work. This can evaluate her working ability perfectly. The interviewers were seeking to make the applicants uncomfortable with occasionally rude questions so therefore the questions ranged from unnecessary and discourteous to irrelevant and sexist but that is what stress test does to see if the applicant is hypersensitive. To me this is a well thought out interview strategy on the part of Apex Environmental because it will help them identify the applicants with low high stress tolerance. This stress interview is controversial but was well structured and effective. 2. If I were Maria I would definitely accept the job offer because it has been something that she has wanted from the jump. Maria has always wanted a job which can evaluate her working abilities. By taking the job at Apex Environmental, Maria can also implement her technical abilities. The additional information that I would take on whether I should take the job or not, the information would be as follows: * Are there any securities of my employment? * Is my job future is pessimistic? * Is there any lack of insurance and pension benefits? * Is there any chance to be underemployed? * Is the working environment is suitable for the job? * Where the company is located and what it is supposed to be my job? * Are the people of the company behaving in a courteous and

    People from different parts of the world have been migrating to the United States for hundreds of years. During the 1920s and 1950s, there was a huge wave of Italian immigrants voyaging to our country. More than four million Italians had left their country and traveled by boat for seven dreadful, agonizing days before arriving in America. Travelers took their first steps on U.S. soil in Ellis Island, the federal immigration station, where Italians had to pass medical and legal inspections before being allowed to enter the United States. This dramatic surge in immigration was brought upon by Italians desperately trying to escape their poverty-stricken lives in pursuit of the American Dream. Upon arriving to America, Italians hoped for better lives with more job opportunities and better education.…

    With a loud creak, the door of my sister’s apartment opens and in comes Brianna freshly from a long, hard day of work at the National Wildlife Research Center. She doesn’t seem to be in the best of moods at first, but as soon as she sees me she can’t help but grin, for we hadn’t seen each other in months. She takes a seat beside me on the small yet comfortable couch in the center of her living room. As she had just gotten off of work she remains in her work clothes, which consists of a classy black polo. Khaki pants, and a pair of dainty black flats. I let her relax for a couple moments and then I begin asking her questions about her past and high school experience. She then begins fondly reminiscing on her former memories of the activities, goals, and such that she had and took part in throughout high school.…

    Based on the information given I see this as an act of terrorism because of where the explosion went off. Any explosion on a military base cannot be defined as a terrorist attack versus just an attack. In this case attacking the community center means you are looking at killing not just members of the U.S. military but also the families that reside there. Not knowing the history of the militants in Flooa and neither how they classify themselves you would not want to immediately put the stamp of terrorism on any explosive activity. With the area being attacked and the civilian community targeted just as much as the military I definitely qualify this as terrorism.…

    The parent I had interviewed was the mother of a 16-year-old son who was rushed to the hospital on Christmas Eve. He had passed out while standing during a hymn in church. He had collapsed over the pew in front of him. His mother and brother thought he was “fooling around” and pulled him upright. Once they realized he was unconscious, they laid him down on the pew and tried to get a response. It was over a minute and still no response, and the ambulance was on their way. When the EMTs arrived, he was awake but he could not talk, his body was cold, and his limbs were stiff.…
