PRACTICE LISTENING AND INTERVIEWING

Often job hunters miss important information the interviewer conveys. You can sharpen your listening skill by tape recording and listening to dialogue from the radio or TV. Record 5 minutes of dialogue as you’re listening. Then write down all you heard. Compare it with the actual recording. Then do it for 10 minutes. Do this exercise several times until you’ve sharpened your listening skill so you won’t be missing key points people are making in interviews.
Ask a friend to conduct a mock interview with you while it’s being recorded on a video. View the results paying particular attention to your posture, eye contact, how you answer the questions (the pace, the clarity of your answers), tone, and upsetting mannerisms. Ask your friend to critique your performance.
