Beautiful December

Now, when the garden awaits the return of spring
Now, when the silence is deep and blue
Now, when the winter has cast her spell again
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Here, where the snow is as soft as a woolly lamb
Here, where the nightfall is deep and blue,
Here, where the stars are so bright, you reach for them
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Child, may you sleep in gentle peace tonight
Dream of songs that rise on silken wings!
When you wake, enchanted by the snowspun light
Sing the songs that came to you in dreams,
Your beautiful December dreams

    Did you answer or turn them down? What happened @mheredge?

    It's frequent here for people to be intrusive about the whereabouts of family members. It's usually based on the family name and the region you are from that rings a bell, but they are rarely direct questions. They pop in more into the conversation mode?

    @mheredge I don't know why they ask this kind of question !
    maybe they don't look for your skills but for you social situation !! it's not professional at all

    I answered the questions but underneath I wasn't happy @Zom. I think interviewers like to know as much as possible about your family background in case it might influence their decision to employ you. Obviously if my father had been a banker, this might have been seen as as a positive point as people often follow their parents in their career choices.

    In France a lot of companies are like private societies or clubs, they hire people that come from the same lineage, I mean people that are from the same few schools and / or have already family members in the industry/field you are applying for.

    Within the same line, if you are hired and don't fit exactly their criteria, it's pretty easy to guess how far you'll be able to go up the ladder whatever your skills. It's better to know this when you are looking for a job in France, especially if you are a career oriented person.

    They said prior going to your interview, make a research about the company and their history first. :)

    A. I'm not in sales.

    What type of industry are you going to pursue now? For your future endeavors, feel free to practice a lot (as much as you can), especially those basic interview questions so that it comes out naturally when you're asked of those stuffs. ;) @Wirginia
