When going into an interview, what’s your top challenge?
The interview is a unique part of the job search process that is possibly one of the most challenging parts as well. No longer are you pressing a button on the screen, you are now interacting in real time with another human being.
The #1 interview skill is a little discussed, yet powerful tool in the interview process.
The #1 interview skill is the ability to lead the conversation.
What does leading the conversation look like?
- Active listening to respond with the most relevant answers
- Following up your answers with relevant questions
- Asking timely and relevant questions throughout and especially at the end of the interview
Once you learn to treat interviews like any other conversations, you are already a step ahead of the rest of the candidates.
