For this discussion, post at least two interview questions you like to ask (if in a position which requires you to interview others). If you are not in a position that requires you to interview others, develop and post at least two questions that you believe would be good questions to ask candidates interviewing for the position you hold now or for one you have held in the past.
After you have posted your questions, reply as if you are the interviewee to some of the questions posted by your peers. Try to pick questions to which others have not yet responded.
Ideally, you will walk away from this discussion with a list of interview questions you can use in the future or for practice.
Keep these guidelines in mind as you develop your questions:
· Do not post any question that is not related to work. For example, “What do you like to do outside of work?”
· Do not ask close-ended questions. A close-ended question is one which can be answered in a single word. For example, “Do you like to work in teams?” This type of question is easily answered with a “yes” or “no.” An improvement to this could be “Could you describe a time when you were part of a team?”
· Do not ask typical surface-level questions. For example, “Please tell me some of your strengths or weaknesses.”

Financial reports are commonly found on city government websites. You should see items such as Yearly Budget, YTD Projection, YTD Actual, and YTD Variance for both Revenues and Expenditures at the top of the report. You should also see Revenues over Expenditures Variance (Fund Balance) for these categories.
For this discussion, complete the following: Use Excel or another tool to create a graph that shows YTD Projection, YTD Actual, and YTD Variance for one of Revenues, Expenditures, or Revenues over Expenditures Variance (Fund Balance). If you use a tool other than Excel, make sure that your file is a common format, so it is easily accessible. Attach your file to your discussion post. Begin a conversation, and engage in ONE of the following:
· Explain the key financial information that your graph communicates.
· Discuss why your graph communicates key financial information effectively.

Begin a conversation about the following:
