Cracking the HR Interview (Jak poradzić sobie podczas Interview)

Interviews can sure be nerve-racking(denerwujące). The person sitting across you is going to judge whether you get your dream job or not. No wonder you’re nervous.

With some planning and a bit of practice, nailing your interview won’t be hard. The whole point of an HR interview is to assess your personality and see if you are a good fit for their team. Below are a few Tips to Attract HR while in an interview :

1- Research(Badania)

It can be quite awkward during the interview if you have no prior knowledge about the company’s goals and needs, and are just winging it. Do your research before an interview. Read up on their growth patterns, product, and marketplace. Assess the information and find common areas where the company’s needs and your talents intersect.

2- Be Confident(Bądź pewny siebie)

Think about how you were short-listed for the HR interview. The employers must have seen something in your resume to call you in for an interview. This thought alone should fill you up with enough confidence. Think about everything you can bring to the table, and it’s value. Confidence is key.

3- Appearance (Wygląd )

Do not go for tacky colours. Instead, wear something neat and professional. 

Be well-rested. That means do not stay up late the night before worrying about the interview. Getting a good night’s sleep is quintessential.

4- Be pumped(Napompuj)

If you can, perform a light workout before your interview to get the blood flowing. This will help your stomach stay strong when you’re nervous.

Also, do not forget to have a nutritious breakfast.

Enthusiasm and proactiveness(proaktywność) can take you a long way. Listen closely to everything your interviewer is saying and make notes if necessary. 

5- Language 

HR interviews assess your language skills too, because communication is quite important in a corporation. Hence, be precise(precyzyjny) in your speech.

As a rule of thumb, keep technical jargon(żargon techniczny) at bay for an HR interview, unless the interviewer explicitly asks for details.

6- FAQs 

HR interviews are quite well known for asking questions about how you resolved a conflict in the past. This is done to assess your integrity and ability to integrate. Be prepared for it.

Practice answering the most commonly asked questions in HR interviews like:

  • Tell me about yourself?(Opowiedz mi o sobie?)
  • What is the most significant advantage you can bring to this organisation?(Jaka jest najważniejsza korzyść, jaką możesz wnieść do tej organizacji?)
  • Why do you want to leave your current position?(Dlaczego chcesz opuścić swoją obecną pozycję?)
  • What are your salary expectations?(Jakie są Twoje oczekiwania płacowe?)
  • What does ‘success’ mean to you?(Co oznacza dla Ciebie sukces?)

7- Most importantly 

As mentioned before, HR interviews assess your real personality. Being honest and open about your expectations and needs will help you in the long run.

It is important to show that you have great interpersonal skills, so act naturally and keep calm. 

Keeping these tips in memory will ensure that you have a pretty good chance of clearing the HR interview and moving on to the next stage of the selection process.

If you do not get a callback, ponder over the interview and learn from it. Remember, one bad interview doesn’t mean that you are incapable of getting your dream job.

Prawo Autorskie (Copyright Law)

“When you have a wit of your own, it’s a pleasure to credit other people for theirs.”

~ Crissa Jami

Rewind to your school days, summer break is now around the corner, and your class has been asked to write a poem. For a month, you have read poems, done some research on poetry, and ignited the budding ‘Frost’ in you. Your piece is now complete, and you can’t wait to show it to the class. Fast forward to the next morning, its recess, and you just went out of the classroom for 5 mins. You come back to witness almost your ENTIRE SECTION BLATANTLY COPYING(NIEZWYKLE KOPIOWANIE) YOUR POEM and authorizing it as their own. Hurts, right? 

The above story is a small anagram of what happened with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Out of a total of 56 short stories and four novels to feature Sherlock Holmes, a final ten short stories that Doyle published between 1923 and 1927 are still in copyright.

So that leads us to the question – Why is copyright law important? 

The U.S Copyright Law is a form of intellectual property law(prawo własności intelektualnej) that protects original works of authorship(autorstwo) including literary, dramatic, musical, and artistic works, such as poetry, novels, movies, songs, computer software, and architecture. It encourages creativity and innovation(innowacja) and enables producers to benefit financially. They are relevant because it takes a lot of talent, energy, and resources to come up with creative, new ideas or products, and it is only natural that creators benefit financially from their efforts.

The main goals of copyright incur : 

  • To encourage the development of culture, science, and innovation.
  • To provide a financial benefit to copyright holders for their works.
  • To facilitate access to knowledge and entertainment for the public.

Copyright is a creation of law in each country, and therefore there is no such thing as international copyright law. Nevertheless, nearly 180 countries have ratified a treaty – at the Berne Convention, administered by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) – that sets a minimum set of standards for the protection of the rights of the creators of copyrighted works around the world.

Copyright provides a framework(struktura) for relationships between the different players in the content industries, as well as for relationships between rights holders and the consumers of content. 

Another issue to be elucidated(wyjaśnione) upon here is plagiarism(plagiat). Every creation requires a lot of hard work, research, and dedicated working hours. And to flagrantly(rażąco) copy it and pass it off as someone’s own is utterly very wrong work conduct. And sadly it is prevalent in today’s market, mainly in the IT industry, called ‘piracy’. Piracy(Piractwo) is a form of online copyright infringement(naruszenie praw autorskich), wherein games, movies, software, etc. are sold and distributed without the knowledge or permission of the original creator.

For example, a software company has to spend years and crores of rupees to come up with a commercially viable(opłacalne) product. It stands to lose money if someone cheaply reproduces the product and sells it for a fraction of the price. Pirated software not only brings losses to the developing company, but it also acts as a disincentive(zniechęcający) to others who may come up with new innovative products.

So to sum it all up, we can say that the benefits of copyright include – 

  • Exclusive use: Once you get a copyright for your work, others cannot use it without permission. If any infringement takes place, you can carry out legal action.
  • Record of ownership: Once you get the copyright registered, there will be a public record of the ownership of your work.
  • Preventing misuse: You can prevent misuse of your work by registering a copyright. You will have more control over how it is presented to the public.
  • Economic gain: The most crucial benefit is the economy you derive from the same. You will have the sole right to any revenue that accrues(narasta) from your original work.
  • Encourages creativity: It encourages general creativity in society as owners enjoy the benefits of creative work.

I hope this article gave you an idea about copyright law and plagiarism. And kids, if you ever come across this article for a school assignment, please learn from it and express your opinion in your own words. Remember, knowledge never goes waste and never leaves your assignment in class unattended 😉
