How do you spell intimidating
I am an attorney and have recently sat on panels for engineers and heavy equipment operators.* Each applicant for a position has to be asked the same questions, and the panelists must rank each answer on the same numerical scale.
The panelists will have a cheat sheet of suggested answers to compare the applicants’ answers to.
You can only threaten an opponent in this way if they are within 30 feet and can clearly see and hear you.
Using demoralize on the same creature only extends the duration; it does not create a stronger fear condition.
I complain with some frequency here about how awful most government interviews are: They often stick to a pre-set list of questions that they ask all candidates, don’t deviate from the list at all (which is crazy, because some of the most useful information comes from digging in with follow-up questions about a candidate’s answers), refuse to allow themselves to consider information about the candidate outside the formal interview process and application, and otherwise insist on treating everyone the same to a degree that hamstrings them in making good hiring decisions.
A regular reader who frequently sits on government hiring panels decided to shed some light on these practices.
See if you can find out ahead of time whether this will be your interview format.
If you have the Persuasive feat, you get a bonus on Intimidate checks (see Feats). A lot of times after the candidate leaves the room, the panelists will ask the hiring manager how close an applicant was to the “ideal” answer if they lack the expertise to judge a given answer.5. Even though this is a highly formalized process, that does not mean that you should leave without gathering the information YOU need to determine if the position is right for you.Even though there might not be a formal way for the panelists to score you on this, I will go back to my scores and adjust upwards if someone asks good, intelligent questions that show interest and motivation at the end of the interview.6. It will have absolutely no impact on whether or not you get the job, but the person who scheduled your interview is probably the gatekeeper to how quickly you get information about the hiring decision and it might improve your chances of getting timely responses to any follow-up questions you need to ask.7.If the question is “Do you have experience in Microsoft Excel?” tell us how you’ve used Excel extensively for three years and can do pivot tables, but ALSO tell us about how you used Excel to analyze a massive amount of data and solve a critical problem at your current job.If you are successful, the target is shaken for 1 round.
