Full-Time Jobs Overview

There are plenty of reasons to consider looking for a full-time job. Besides advantages like healthcare, a steady paycheck, a retirement account, and paid time off, full-time jobs can be perfect for people who want to dedicate their time to a company, cause, or work they're really passionate about. They're also good if you no longer want to deal with the changing schedule of a part-time job. If you've just graduated or are ready to commit to a career path, there are tons of opportunities for full-time employment across industries.

Working for a company as a full-time employee comes with a slew of upsides:

  • benefits, like dental and vision insurance
  • a 401k retirement plan
  • paid holidays
  • predictable 40-hour workweek that sticks to a schedule (you know when you're working and when you can have a day off)
  • you learn the ins and outs of the business quickly
  • you have more opportunities to advance your career and score a raise or promotion
  • a steady income that can help you increase your savings, especially if you earn overtime

Interviewing for a Full-Time Job

Before they hire you, your future employer will want to know more about you, your experience, and your work style. Through a job interview, both you and your company will have the chance to ask each other questions to determine if you're a good match.

While it's normal to feel nervous before an interview, don't put too much pressure on yourself. You're interviewing them as much as they're interviewing you! To get prepared, try doing a mock interview with a friend to help you work out clear, informative answers to the following commonly asked questions:

  • Tell me about yourself.
  • What are some of your strengths and weaknesses?
  • Why do you want to work for this company?
  • Tell me about a time you had to resolve a conflict with a coworker.
  • Why should we hire you?

Monster has gathered a list of additional interview questions that hiring managers might ask you, so you can get a head start on impressing any employer.

How Much Do Full-Time Jobs Pay?

To learn what the median pay is for your job title in your area, use Monster's handy Salary Tool.
