Interviews Just updated for ! There are some job interview questions that are guaranteed to come up in most if not all of your job interviews — regardless of your industry, your experience level, and job type. At the top of this list is the universal and much-dreaded classic: In fact, we think this question is so important that we created an entire video lesson around it in our flagship product Big Interview.
Here's a little bit about me My name is Stephen Savage. I was born in a small farming town in Queensland, Australia, the youngest of five boys. Yes, I know "my poor mother!! My father worked on a local fruit orchard, and my mother ran the post office, which was in a room that my Dad built onto the front of our house.
I lived there until I finished secondary school, then moved to the city to attend university. I was gonna be a school teacher, or so I thought. During the school holidays, I would return to my home town for some good food thanks Mum!
Often I would be working alongside visiting backpackers, and the wild tales they told of their adventures in far off places would distract me from my work. That is when the seed was planted!
More and more, I started to wonder about what was outside my little world. So, I worked hard, and saved every penny, until in FebruaryI set off with an old schoolmate of mine, Cosmo, to see what was out there.
We didn't always travel together, but managed to keep track of what country the other was in, and often bumped into each other by chance. Like the day I was walking past a pub in London, and Cosmo stuck his head out the window. He was due to fly to South America the next day, and I was leaving for the Middle East, so we swapped a few travel stories over a quiet pint or two, and parted ways again.
We both spent much of the 's dragging our backpacks from country to country, stopping to work wherever the opportunity presented itself.
Now in I'm currently footing it round the globe again. If you want to see what I'm doing, click on the 'this project' link at the top of this page, or to see my latest adventures, go to the 'journal' page.

I picked apples and stonefruit in New Zealand. In Israel, I picked avocados, and also worked as a DJ's assistant. In England and America, I earnt my keep by painting houses. I lived and worked in a hotel in London for several months, and picked up whatever odd jobs I could along the way; labouring, gardening, tour driving, even holding down a job as a cook in Athens I climbed mountains and hiked trails, camping in some of the most beautiful places on earth.
I hitchhiked thousands of miles, in cars, on the back of trucks, even on the back of motorbikes; often sleeping by the side of the road wherever my last lift took me.
I hitched rides around the north of England and Ireland during a blizzard, across more than a dozen states in America, and into the Sahara Desert. I sailed on the Nile, floated on the Dead Sea, was thrown overboard on the Red Sea, kayaked under a waterfall in New Zealand, canoed through swamps in Louisianna, snorkled in the Florida Keys, went yachting off Santa Monica, and skinnydipped on half a dozen Greek Islands.
I bungy jumped, jetboated and abseiled, and gave myself an embarrassing injury attempting to waterski. I drove across Paris without a map, clung to the back of a bus through the Phillipines, my train partly derailed in Africa, I tore myself to shreds in a motorcycle accident in Thailand, and talked my way out of several speeding tickets in the United States.
I was thrown out of bars in Mexico, chased down by five patrol cars in South Carolina, followed the Whisky Trail through Scotland, and got stranded in Manilla with no money.
I narrowly missed danger on a constant basis; I left Manchester for Israel just before the IRA bomb tore the downtown area of that city apart.
I left Israel just before the suicide bombings resumed. I was on my way south through California when the La riots began, and Hurricane Andrew ripped through Florida just as I was heading there from New Orleans.
I was standing on the rim of a volcano in Indonesia when it bellowed and shook, throwing a huge cloud of smoke into the air. I was the victim of an attempted mugging in Amsterdam, and the survivor of two rather nasty bouts of food poisoning in the States. I met wonderful and fascinating and strange and scary people.
I made lifelong friends. I fell in love What I found was a world so exciting and challenging, that since I stopped travelling, it has been hard to settle into what we call a 'normal life'. Apart from a couple of short holidays in Asia, I have been home in Brisbane now for almost six years.A Bit About Me.
