    08 common Interview question and answers - Job Interview Skills 1. "Tell me a little about yourself." You should take this opportunity to show your communication skills by speaking clearly and concisely in an organized manner. Because there is no right or wrong answer for this question, it is important to appear friendly. 2. "What are your strengths?" This is a popular interview question. They want to know what you think of yourself. Although this is a general question, there is a wrong and right answer. The wrong answer is a generic answer saying you are organized and friendly. Although it will not hurt you during the interview, it will certainly not help you either. Answer this question based on the type of job you are applying for. 3. "What are your weaknesses?"

08 common Interview question and answers - Job Interview Skills 1. "Tell me a little about yourself." You should take this opportunity to show your communication skills by speaking clearly and concisely in an organized manner. Because there is no right or wrong answer for this question, it is important to appear friendly. 2. "What are your strengths?" This is a popular interview question. They want to know what you think of yourself. Although this is a general question, there is a wrong and right answer. The wrong answer is a generic answer saying you are organized and friendly. Although it will not hurt you during the interview, it will certainly not help you either. Answer this question based on the type of job you are applying for. 3. "What are your weaknesses?" For this answer, you should display a weakness that can be seen as a strength. There are many types of answers that will work. Some answers will be good answers for certain jobs, while the same answer will be a bad answer for a different job. Select an answer that will work for the position you are applying for. 4. "Where do you see yourself in five years?" This question primarily depends on where you are in your career. A person with 5 years of experience will have different goals than a person with no work experience.This question is asked to see how serious a candidate is about his or her career. Some people might not know their goals, and some people might have goals of becoming rich and retiring early. Those are incorrect answers for this question. The type of answer you want to give is an ambitious answer that shows you really love your career. A good interviewer will read between the lines and find out if a person is going to be a hard worker or just a mediocre one. Being descriptive and shooting for a big goal is something interviewers want to hear. 5. "What do you know about our company?" A typical job interview question, asked to find out how much company research you have conducted, is "What do you know about this company?" Prepare in advance, and in a word, research, so you can provide relevant and current information about your prospective employer to the interviewer. 6. "Are you good at dealing with change?" Dealing with change is common in the work place. A simple yes will not be sufficient to impress the interviewer. This is another type of question where everyone will have similar answers. Of course everyone is going to claim being excellent dealing with change. You got to communicate that you are really good at dealing with change. 7. "Do you work well under pressure?" In most cases, the best answer to this question is answering yes. Working well under pressure is a good trait to have. However, I think if you answer that you work the same with pressure and without pressure, the interviewer will be more impressed. However, you will need to explain in words why this is better. 8. "How do you make important decisions?" There are many ways to answer this question, and if you have a reasonable method of making decisions, it will probably be sufficient. One answer I thought of included not being afraid of asking your manager. You can follow up by saying even the best needs mentoring, and you always want to improve. So basically, this could work as an answer, but depending on the job, you might have a better shot with an answer like my example.

Mabuhay! This video is presented by Jose Respall, the principal of Respall Migration Australia which was founded in 1999. If you are a Filipino Quality Assurance Manager working in the Philippines or overseas in a country outside Australia here is a great opportunity for you. A chance to further your career in Australia. It is a land of opportunity with higher wages and a wonderful relaxed way of life. Joseis a registered migration agent who specialises in Australian immigration. The first step involves reading the first 4 chapters of Jose Respall's book Avoiding The Migration Minefield - How To Migrate To Australia From The Philippines. The book captures his 14 years of Australian immigration experience. Respall has made the first 4 chapters available in a downloadable e-book from the website at http://www.respall.com/. He has included real life Australian immigration case studies, hints and tips on how to migrate to Australia, technical information and the all-important code of conduct. The video outlines the process to receiving a visa to live in Australia. The Quality Assurance Manager applicant must attend a review for the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) at Respall Migration Australia Manila. This is done to help the applicant to pass it.Respall Migration Australia documentation specialists assist the Quality Assurance Manager with each document to make sure it is correct - this includes improving their CV to Australian standards. Respall liaises with the Australian assessing authority.For example, VETASSESS. Once the IELTS test has been passed and assessing authority has provided a favourable letter the next step is for Respall Migration Australia to prepare an Expression of Interest and lodge it with the Department of Immigration and Boarder Protection (DIPB). The department sends specific instructions regarding the application for Australian immigration and Respall Migration Australia help the Quality Assurance Manager to complete the requests. Once those requirements are met the department issues a visa grant for the applicant and their family members - if they are included in the application for Australian immigration. To start this whole process a Filipino Quality Assurance Manager must email their CV to Respall Migration Australia for assessment. Professionals living in the Philippines can meet Respall Migration Australia in their Makati City office; those further away can Skype. The complete book Avoiding The Migration Minefield - How To Migrate To Australia From The Philippines will officially be launched in May 2014 to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Respall Migration Australia. Respall Migration Australian principal Jose Respall says there is a real minefield when it comes to Australian immigration. Professionals being highly skilled sometimes attempt to prepare their own visa applications but they can't be expected to know the Migration Act and keep up with Australian government changes to legislation which occur several times a year. One wrong answer or incorrect document can jeopardise the entire application. The other danger is the many unscrupulous and corrupt individuals who promise to help but really are only interested in taking the applicant's money and disappearing. Some have masqueraded as migration agents. The end result is usually the visa applicant losing a lot of money for no gain. Respall Migration Australia stresses the need for a genuine and valid visa application for Australian immigration. A Filipino Quality Assurance Manager has peace of mind knowing that Jose Respall, who is located in Sydney, Australia, is a registered migration agent as is the manager of his operation based in the Philippines and they must abide by the Code of Conduct as a breach of the code would see their licence being removed. A copy of the code of conduct is provided by Respall Migration Australia to their clients.

Principles of Auditing: Professor Liburd Lecture 1 Overview 1/24/14 Please visit our website at http://raw.rutgers.edu TIME STAMPS 0:19 In the Public Interest 1:58 Center for Audit Quality Website (& video) 6:44 Auditing vs. Accounting 11:35 Definition of Auditing 27:03 Purpose of Auditing 30:01 Information Risk 30:59 Assurance vs. Attestation 34:25 Sarbanes-Oxley Act The purpose of this lecture is to provide the student with an overview of auditing and assurance services and the CPA profession as a while. Auditing and accounting are technically two different fields, and thus should be distinguished. Accounting is the recording, classifying, and summarizing of economic events for the purpose of providing financial information used in decision making. Auditing is determining whether information that has already been recorded properly reflects the economic events that occurred during the accounting period. More specifically, auditing is a systematic process of objectively obtaining and evaluating evidence regarding assertions (financial statements, including footnotes) about economic actions and events to ascertain the degree of correspondence between the assertions and established criteria (GAAP) and communicating the results (auditor's report and other reports) to interested users (persons who rely on the financial reports to make economic and financial decisions, such as creditors and investors). An audit is performed by a competent, independent person (both independent in fact and independent in appearance). The auditor must be qualified to understand the criteria used and must be competent to know the types and amount of evidence to accumulate to reach the proper conclusion after the evidence has been examined. The competence of the individual performing the audit is of little value if he or she is biased in the accumulation and evaluation of evidence. Overall, auditors lend credibility to the financial statements presented by management. There are numerous factors that have contributed towards the need of independent auditing today. (1) Remoteness of information (i.e. lack of stockholder interaction with management, directors not being involved in daily operations and decision making, and dispersion of the business among numerous geographical locations and complex corporate structures). (2) Biases and motives of the provider. Information will be biased in favor of the provider when his or her goals are inconsistent with the decision maker's goals. (3) Voluminous data. Most business have to deal with millions of transactions processed daily via a sophisticated computerized system. There are also multiple product lines, and multiple transaction locations (probably for EACH of the aforementioned product lines). A fourth is (4) Complex exchange transactions. New and changing business relationships lead to innovative accounting and reporting problems. The potential impact of transactions is not always quantifiable, which in turn leads to increased (and sometimes more complex) disclosures. Auditing plays an important role in reducing information risk. Information risk reflects the possibility that the information upon which the business risk decision was made was inaccurate. Causes of information risk include the fact that it is nearly impossible for a decision maker to have much firsthand knowledge about the organization with which they do business (i.e. information from others must be relied upon). Furthermore, if information is provided by someone whose goals are inconsistent with those of the decision maker, the information may be biased in favor of the provider. The higher the volume of transactions, the greater the risk that improperly recorder information is included in the records. Exchange transactions between organizations have become increasingly complex and therefore more difficult to record properly. There are four major elements of the broad definition of assurance services. (1) Independence-integrity and objectivity. (2) Professional services (which involves some element of judgment based on education and experience). (3) Improving the quality of information or its context (assuring users about the reliability and relevance of information). (4) For decision makers. An attestation service is a type of assurance service in which the CPA firm issues a report about the reliability of an assertion that is the responsibility of another party. To attest means to lend credibility or to vouch for the truth or accuracy of the statements that one party makes to another. It is primarily financial information. There are five categories: (1) audit of historical financial statements, (2) attestation of internal control over financial reporting, (3) review of historical financial statements, (4) attestation services on info technology, (5) other attestation services.
