I have a panel interview for California DOJ on zoom any tips ? What should I expect?

If it is your first round, then you can expect a very rigid interview, whereby people will literally read questions to you from a pre-selected list and won’t try to engage you in conversation. If you try to ask for clarification on any question that you are asked, all the interviewer can do is repeat the question, word for word. I’m not trying to scare you, but just be aware if the interview feels a bit awkward because the people on the other end seem like robots. (All this might feel easier in a virtual setting, but in person it was just weird.) This happened during my interview process with California DOJ, and I’m told it is set up like this for initial interviews with ALL California state positions, supposedly designed with the intention of avoiding favoritism. Like I said, it can feel awkward at times, as the interviewers often pause to write down your questions without trying to have a natural back-and-forth exchange. That said, having also sat on the other side of some of these interviews, it helps to stick to the 20 second to 2 minute rule in answering their questions and act as though you are having an actual conversation. Best wishes to you :)

Which section are you interviewing with? I’ve heard that the substantive portion of the interviews can vary drastically depending on the section. But from my experience, you can expect to be asked about your experience and qualifications (including metrics, even though you already had to submit everything in your written application) and be asked several hypotheticals. The hypos are more about testing your thought process and less about reaching the right conclusion.

In 2020 I was diagnosed with epilepsy. I have a number of seizures a day but don’t knowwhen I’m having them (EEG detected it). I started on meds and am feeling much better, however the only way to know if meds are 100% working is to go to hospital for 3 day EEG. I’m supposed to try to live my daily life as much as possible during EEG so I need to work. But can’t do zoom calls. I hadn’t planned on disclosing my diagnosis to my boss but now feel like I’m backed in a corner here. (Cont in comments)

Something a little more fun that got me thinking - attended a Zoom dinner party with a French guest and an English guest. They asked what typical American dinners are. I didn’t quite know how to answer fairly since I’m from the Midwest, and that answer can be so regional, not to mention cultural! What are the two meals you think of first when you think of your families? Definitely interested in anyone who is not American too!

Hi guys, I have a last interview round with a company coming up, and I already know I don’t want to work there (as I’m interviewing with other places I find more exciting). Would you do the last interview and THEN let them know you don’t want it? Or would you tell them before the last round interview? And would you just say you’re interviewing with some other places more aligned to your end-goals?

Hi all. To give everyone an update on my best friend, who had recently become my girl friend, we broke up.

I confronted her about it and she did indeed confirm my worst fear that she was cheating. I am sad now.

Useful tip: Try to maintain a file where you diligently update notes about all the projects you have worked on, what challenges did you face, your learnings, client/ manager testimonials etc. This will help you in your next interview. It is not humanly possible to remember every single detail.
