One of the greatest (and most under-utilized) weapons in the job-seeker’s arsenal is the ability to effectively listen. Unfortunately, when you are in front of a potential employer as a job seeker, you may be so intent on telling the employer all about you, your work history, your accomplishments and all of the other great things about yourself, that you are not LISTENING to the needs that the employer has.
Here is a video I would like for you to watch on effective listening skills. I want you to watch it from the perspective of being in a job interview.
OK… so know that you have learned a little bit more about effective listening skills, how can you implement some of these ideas into your interview preparation?
Please share your ideas with others…
