English Speaking Skills: The Job Interview as an Audition – Part 2

English Speaking Skills:  Job Interview as an Audition- Part 2

When you are interviewing for a job, the frame of being in an audition will focus you and help you to stand out from other job applicants.   Practice these tips during your rehearsal for the interview:

  • State or show the not-obvious.  Create an intriguing statement about yourself.  For example, a woman expecting to be told “Tell us a bit about yourself,” ( the most popular interview question), replied, “ I think I should tell you I’m a non-conforming conformist.” She explained what she meant and wound up getting the job.
  • Think and Show Outside the Usual: Think about a visual that really represents what you can do.  Perhaps a photo taken at an event you organized.  If you have nothing that symbolizes your capabilities, look for a pattern not easily apparent in your resume.  Be prepared to talk about that interest or talent, apart from your official work history.
  • Get to television or YouTube interviews: Watch interviews and make note of what works.  Look for traits that make people likeable and competent.  Research indicates that people who use gestures are perceived as being more social. Research also indicates that people who speak clearly are perceived as being 30% smarter.
