Coaching responses to interview questions
Filed under: Interviewing
Posted by: site admin @ 3:26 pm

Eugene Raudsepp offers some nice ideas for responding to
interview questions in “Don’t let tough interview questions
sabotage your interview” 

He offers not only pros, but also some watch-outs.  Not
mentioned in the article are three things that should be in
your “high-beams”:

[1]Interviewees need to be acutely aware of body language
and “meta-language,”
the voice utterances one makes when
we hear but don’t listen, or are thinking what to say.

[2]Interviewees will feel more confident if there is a chance
to do mock interviews to practice responses to questions.

[3]Be aware of the importance of voice intonation, voice
pace and minimizing background noises
especially in phone interviews
where visual cues are absent.  Using mirrors to remind yourself
to smile and have good posture is one positive action to take.
