Recently I’ve been helping some of my clients to prepare for job interviews. What I’ve noticed is that we often listen to questions and then try to answer them. While we are trying to, the interviewer loses their focus and never hears what we want to say.
So what to do? Try to get to the point where you answer the question as soon as you can.
If you need some thinking time, take a couple of seconds to reflect or introduce the context and then get straight to the point.
We all want our stories to be heard and we have to make sure our audience is still with us.
Good luck with your next interview!
