We've all run into these kind of people. You attempt to have a "conversation" with them but you know that all the time you're talking New Era Hats Uk

Give the interviewer plenty of positive visual/verbal feedback when he or she is talking. Also, make sure your eyes are focused on the interviewer and not "glazed over," thereby strongly suggesting total detachment from what is being said. If the interview is over the telephone, you might say such things as, "Yes, that's true," "Good point," etc.

Seek clarification when needed. Referring to the previous bullet point, rather than to give the nonsensical/non responsive answer that was given, which strongly suggests that you weren't listening very well at all, you might respond with a question such as this: "Could you please expand on what you mean, specifically, by 'tight deadlines'?" It's a fair question and certainly indicates that you were actively listening to what the hiring manager was saying.

Will taking this approach guarantee that you will shoot to the top of the candidate list? Unfortunately, no, it won't. I can guarantee you one thing, though: The moment you are perceived as someone who is a poor listener, as someone who is not totally engaged in the interview, you will be quickly eliminated from further consideration.

they are not really listening. They're merely thinking about what they are going to say next. And, if you happen to take a New Era New York Yankees 39thirty Fitted Cap

5 Steps to Becoming a More Active Listener

Think, Act Like TOP Salespeople

Ask intelligent, appropriate, applicable questions. It's quite all right for you to ask questions during a job interview as long as those questions are intelligent ones that are also appropriate and applicable to what has been discussed during the interview.

When asked, at the end of the interview, if you have any questions, give a brief summary of what you heard and understood during the interview, then ask the most important question to be asked during the entire interview.

breath, or otherwise pause while speaking, they jump right in and "step on" what you were saying and try to head the conversation in a totally different direction!

In "Headhunter" Hiring Secrets: The Rules of the Hiring Game Have Changed . . . Forever!, I devote an entire chapter to the idea of job prospecting/interviewing as sales process ("Selling Is NOT Telling It's Asking"). Contrary to popular opinion, the most successful salespeople are very rarely the "fast talkers." Rather, they usually are those who are the best listeners, and who, because they are good listeners, then ask prospects the best questions to determine how best to sell them! Just coincidentally, the most successful job candidates also tend to be those who understand these same principles and then employ precisely this same approach.

While friends and acquaintances may tolerate any poor listening habits you might have, don't expect this same level of tolerance from hiring professionals. Because time is at such a premium today for these professionals, the moment that they even suspect that you may be wasting their time (or trying their patience!), they quite likely will terminate any interview with you and quickly move on to the next candidate, thereby eliminating you from further consideration.

Make sure your responses are appropriate/relevant to what has been said or asked. A dead giveaway that New Era Orioles Hat

Now, assume for the moment that you are a hiring manager, "headhunter" or Human Resources professional operating under constant time constraints and that you are interviewing a candidate with these "communication" traits for an open position. It would probably get really frustrating and tedious really fast, wouldn't you agree? Well, I'm here to tell you that, yes, it can and does! get very frustrating and tedious very quickly! (It can also torpedo a candidate very quickly.)

Many, if not most, open positions today specify that candidates must have "excellent communication skills." Far too many candidates interpret this requirement to mean that they must be "good talkers." The fact of the matter is, that's really only one half of the effective communication equation.

I often relate the job prospecting/interviewing process to the general sales process. The reason for that is really quite simple. Whenever you prospect or interview for a job any job you definitely are in the sales business, and the "product" you are attempting to sell is YOU and your unique professional brand. That means, in order to be effective, you must employ the same tactics and strategies that are typically employed in any sales situation.

Want to become (and be perceived as) a better, more active listener, and thereby significantly improve your chances of success during a job interview? Consider taking these steps:

Example: The hiring manager tell you, "What we're looking for in the person we select for this position is someone who can multi task, stay within budget and meet tight deadlines. How do you stack up with regard to these characteristics?" Your response: "Well, Cincinnati Reds Hats I have consistently been able to meet each and every requirement of every job I've held during my career. I have absolutely no doubt that I can continue to do that in this position."
