SHUT UP AND LISTEN TO GET YOUR NEXT JOB

TUESDAY  TIP

If there was only one tip I would give an interviewee hoping to get an offer for a JOB it would be:

LISTEN.

Many people today do not know how to listen.  Instead, we are caught up in appearances, what WE want to say, thinking about what is coming NEXT. So how do you listen?  REALLY LISTEN?
  1. Be quiet and allow time after the question before you answer
  2. Concentrate on what the interviewer is asking you
  3. Think about what the interviewer is really asking you (subtext)
  4. Think again about how you want to answer
  5. Don't be afraid to ask for clarification
  6. Practice active listening at home, on the job, and with friends
  7. Learn more about Active Listening from one of my favorite Sources MindTools or a new site Study Guides and Strategies
  8. What tips or tricks do you have for active listening?
