The Silent Interview

  1. 1. “The Silent Interview”<br />www.kathycommunicates.com/fpq<br />
  2. 2. How many jobs have you interviewed for lately? <br />Would you like to get the edge in your next interview? <br />Now you can with these tips. <br />Ssshhhh! <br />And you don’t have to say a word.<br />
  3. 3. My chair was small in the office of my would-be boss. <br />It was my first job interview since leaving the military. <br />Behind the large desk, my would-be boss was explaining the job duties as his secretary. <br />He was leaning back in his very large chair, folding and unfolding his arms.<br />
  4. 4. I answered his questions with zest and zeal, eager to go to work for the federal government. <br />During that time I was doing something he was unaware of. <br />I was asking myself some questions about him and the office. <br />Because of my secret skill, I got the job!<br />
  5. 5. 1. Turn your face fully towards the interviewer/s, even if you must move your chair. Don’t look sideways. Sideways glances may give the impression of slyness. Your prospective employer can get the wrong idea.<br />2. Show that you are listening. Be attentative. Make frequent eye contact with everyone in the room as they address you, or by looking at each in turn.<br />INTERVIEWS DOs<br />
  6. 6. 1. Fidget with your hair, tug at your beard, twiddle your moustache, pull ear lobes, or play with earrings. These are nervous gestures.<br />2. Rub your eyes or touching your nose. Yes, they are nervous habits, but they can also be construed as a sign of lying, half-truths, or giving misleading information.<br />INTERVIEW DO NOTs<br />
  7. 7. Here’s 12 Tips to Help You in your interviews (and don’t knock these until you try them)<br />
  8. 8. 1. If your interviewer’s lower eye lids straighten out, they are tuning you out. Start over.<br />2. If your interviewer has a small mouth, be brief, concise, and to the point.<br />3. If your interviewer has a long straight nose, be clear, logical, and stick to the facts.<br />
  9. 9. 4. If your interviewer has a turned-up (ski jump) nose, they respond to emotion. They like to be of service. So you can ask them for help.<br />5. If your interviewer has an arched (hook nose), they are skeptical and proof. They are business-like, so stick to it. They like to have others implement their ideas.<br />
  10. 10. 6. If your interviewer has high round pencil-thin eyebrows, they need reassurance. They want to be above reproach. Sincere compliments will pave the way. Don't rush them. They may be self-conscious.<br />7. If your interviewer has eyes that slant up, they are optimistic. Explain how great it will be to have you. They expect everything to work out well.<br />
  11. 11. 8. If your interviewer has a mouth that turns down, they are wary of what others tell them. It will be helpful to make a very balanced pitch by pointing out a few flaws or showing other alternatives to what they want. Your unexpected candor will help gain their trust.<br />
  12. 12. 9. If your interviewer has a bigger upper lip, it's important to be authentic. These people connect less to what you say and more to who you are. A slick answer may sound phony, and they can quickly spot deception. Relax and be yourself.<br />10. If your interviewer has angled/shaped curved eyebrows, ask for their opinion and how you can assist them. Allow them to feel in control.<br />
  13. 13. 11. If your interviewer's eyes slant down, they are looking for problems. Don't be too enthusiastic, and refrain from being jovial. To them life is serious.<br />12. If your interviewer has a diamond shaped face, you should get to the point, especially if they also have high placed ears. They don't have time to waste and can be very impatient.<br />
  14. 14. You can also try these tips with everyone you know and meet. <br />More information is at; www.facesarevealing.com or www.kathycommunicates.com/fpq<br />Kathy Thompson,writing@kathycommunicates.com<br /><ul><li>www.kathycommunicates.com/fpq</li>
