FAQ

Do recruiters usually ask you to fill out employment application after two rounds of interview?
Consider yourself lucky! Many companies won’t even consider looking at your resume until after you have applied.The application process is often times used by recruiters as a filter for people who are actually interested. So many people now-a-days want to mass apply to positions, often times positions they apply for are way outside their qualification range. If you have been interviewed before you applied it means that you obviously meet the requirements of the position and that you have a good chance of getting the role.If a recruiter really likes you and doesn’t want to lose you s/he will conduct interviews before they make you apply. Many Fortune 500 companies hiring for leadership development programs will fly you out to the facility before you even officially apply.Keep up the good work!
How does one get invited to the Quora Partner Program? What criteria do they use, or is it completely random?
I live in Germany. I got an invite to the Quora partner program the day I landed in USA for a business trip. So from what I understand, irrespective of the number of views on your answers, there is some additional eligibility criteria for you to even get an email invite.If you read the terms of service, point 1 states:Eligibility. You must be located in the United States to participate in this Program. If you are a Quora employee, you are eligible to participate and earn up to a maximum of $200 USD a month. You also agree to be bound by the Platform Terms (https://www.quora.com/about/tos) as a condition of participation.Again, if you check the FAQ section:How can other people I know .participate?The program is invite-only at this time, but we intend to open it up to more people as time goes on.So my guess is that Quora is currently targeting people based out of USA, who are active on Quora, may or may not be answering questions frequently ( I have not answered questions frequently in the past year or so) and have a certain number of consistent answer views.Edit 1: Thanks to @Anita Scotch, I got to know that the Quora partner program is now available for other countries too. Copying Anuta’s comment here:If you reside in one of the Countries, The Quora Partner Program is active in, you are eligible to participate in the program.” ( I read more will be added, at some point, but here are the countries, currently eligible at this writing,) U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy and Australia.11/14/2018Edit 2 : Here is the latest list of countries with 3 new additions eligible for the Quora Partner program:U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, Australia, Indonesia, India and Brazil.Thanks to Monoswita Rez for informing me about this update.
Does it make you uncomfortable to fill out equal opportunity employment forms with job applications because of your disability?
I’ve never actually had to do this in job-seeking, I already had a job, then had a stroke, then, when I returned to my job, I filed for Accommodation.I wouldn’t have even done that, but my District-level person was being a butthead. I wasn’t coming back to full-time fast enough for her, a month after my stroke, my doctor allowed me 25 hours, two weeks later, I requested being ticked up to thirty hours, and my doctor held me there until I’d had my whole first round of PT/OT. My DD started making noises about me stepping down from managerial and going on-call (more hands-on/physical *snort*) so I asked my doctor for forty.When I took that paper to the DD- forty hours, back at full-time- my DD immediately put me back into the on-call manager rotation, and, lo! and behold! I was scheduled as primary on-call that very weekend! Doc said, “No- forty hours, no nights or weekends,” and castigated my DD for wanting to kill me so soon after almost killing me. So, with that paper in hand, I wrote a letter to HR explaining what I was requesting and why, including my Doctor’s Note, and was granted my accommodation.They nearly had to do this. When I was hired into my position, I was assured then I was not on-call, I worked straight eight M - F, no OT unless I volunteered to take a shift somewhere else in the district to cover a call-out. Both the President and Vice-President told me directly I was not on-call. It was the DD who had instituted a weekend on-call rotation a few months after starting her own position, because too many of her younger, more vibrant, managers liked to party on the weekends and so were not covering their programs correctly, and, because I try to be a good employee, I didn’t fuss, I pulled my call-weekends like a good little soldier, covering for others. But not anymore.Not anymore. HR granted my accommodation, DD wasn’t happy and still isn’t. I get notes to record for any little thing she can find- it gets old. I know she’s covering her ass, she knows I’m covering mine, so here we are, in a state of detente, neither one of us giving an inch.My job is difficult, all mandated paperwork for 35 people- and it has to be exactly, meticulously, correct. I do it. I do it and manage a program which is richer and more widely varied than any other in the company, but, as boxed-in as I am, I boxed them in, with me. So, here we are- it isn't fun, it isn’t “right”, it just is.I despise that I had to force my company to do the right thing, but I wasn’t going to allow them to brush me away simply because I can no longer pick up the slack in other departments.
How do I fill out the employment and income section on the UK visa application if sponsored by a partner?
The answer depends on what kind of visa you are seeking, and also what you mean by the word “sponsored”…If you wish to VISIT the UK then all that your partner can do is cover the costs of your trip. The visa officer still needs to be sure that you are likely to return home after your holiday, and usually that means that you have to demonstrate that you have a decent job and a reasonable income at home.If you wish to SETTLE in the UK then what is important is your partner’s income, since that income will have to support you as well. Information about what you earn in your home country is not really relevant, since presumably you would be leaving your job in order to move to Britain.
How did you learn to fill out a job application?
First you must be truthful. Look at your assets, what do you do best, then look at what the future employer’s needs and fit the two together as best you can. On any job application or any correspondence try to master the King’s English to your very best ability. This is especially important if the new job requires communication interfacing with other people outside your company.
Why do companies ask for resumes and filled out work experience forms?
OQ: Why do some employers require you to provide a resume and fill out a job application?Currently, the resume is the one and only way for companies hiring staff to evaluate your experience doing the work that would be required of you at the job you’re applying for.You’re asking because you have no experience, aren’t you? Or you have a big ol’ gap where you were doing something else that you want to get away from? I know, I know…there should be a way for us to get a good job, too, but currently, there isn’t.The job application is for legal reasons, mainly to do a background check on applicants to make sure they aren’t wanted by the police or something. And to confirm in the office that they can read and write.
As a business owner, what online/offline templates would you benefit from having (e.g. a template to fill out and send invoices, business plan templates, etc.)?
One awesome highlight of ZipBooks’ invoice templates is that you can save default settings like your notes and payment terms for your invoices once you nail down the details of what exactly should be on your invoice. Using ZipBooks for your invoice means never sending off an invoice without your own company information on it (oops!). They actually score your invoice based on what information you include and so you'll be able to leverage the data we've collected from tens of thousands of invoices on what things are important to get you paid faster.Here are a couple tips on things that you will get you paid faster and should definitely be included on your invoice:Company logo: This is part of the invoice template that we provide for you. You'll save a company logo under company settings and you'll never have to think about whether your invoice template header looks good again.Notes: Thanking a customer for their business will always make you stand out in a crowd and leverages the psychological principle of reciprocity so that you get paid faster. Lots of studies show that including a thank you note gets you paid faster. I think that would especially be true when someone is getting a big bill for legal services.Invoice payment terms: Another great free feature of ZipBooks invoice templates for legal services (and anyone else who used our invoice templates for that matter) is that when you put terms into an invoice, we automatically detected it and set a due date for you. If you don't set terms, we assume that the invoice will be due in 14 days. This is the due date that we use to drive the late payment reminder and to display the number of days that a invoice has been outstanding in the AR aging report. If you don't want to set the invoice payment terms every time, you can set it up once under Account Preferences in the ZipBooks app. Pretty neat, right?Customer information: This one might seem pretty straightforward but it should always be on the list of "must haves" when thinking about what you should put on your invoice.Detailed description of bill: ZipBooks' invoice template lends itself to the ability to show a detailed account of everything that you have charged since you last sent an invoice. You can do that by manually entering the invoice details or you can use the time tracker to automatically pull in billable activity once you are ready to send the next invoice for your legal services.
