Didn’t get that job you applied for? Not invited for the second interview? One of the biggest reasons why candidates don’t get offered the role or don’t get invited for the next round of interviews is communication skills.
Here are 3 communication mistakes you may not be aware you’re making during a job interview and which may be standing between you and success:
1) The habit of talking too much – When the interviewer asks a question, the candidate finds it difficult to come to the point and keep the response concise and clear.
2) Criticising an ex-employer – One of the worst things you could do is vent about someone you’ve worked for in the past.
3) Assuming a job interview is a 1-way street where the candidate simply answers questions asked by the interviewer and does not actually begin a 2-way dialogue. You need to ask interesting questions too throughout the interview. Don’t wait until the end of the interview to ask your questions.
Avoid these three communication errors and increase your chances of getting the job of your dreams.
