One of the reasons many employees love working at Pekin Insurance is the accessibility and relatability they have to our Executive Team members. The culture here means that when you walk through the hallway and see a top leader, they will stop to say hello to you. They also take the time to greet new employees in orientation and get to know them a little better. How many other companies can say the same?
Congratulations! You have made it to the interview, but now what? Whether you had an interview yesterday or have not interviewed in the past twenty years, it is a stressful situation and preparation is key. Luckily, there are many interview techniques that can help candidates prepare. Even though you will not know what questions will be asked, there is one technique in particular that you can use to help take your answers to a new level when answering questions. The technique is called the S-T-A-R Method, which stands for Situation, Task, Action, and Result. By placing answers in the S-T-A-R Method, it will walk the interviewer through the stages of your answer to help them follow along!
The technological landscape is rapidly evolving. Things that may have seemed like science-fiction only a few years ago are now becoming an everyday reality: self-driving cars, artificial intelligence (AI), smart homes, robots, and more.
