Topic: Interviews

Question: What are some useful tips on interviewing?

Answer: “Lean toward the other person to convey interest and enjoyment.” “Seek first to understand, then to be understood.” Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.” “Suspend judgment. Never assume you know how someone feels.” “Take notes…but don’t let your note taking get in the way of the interview.” “Maintain eye contact.” “Be aware of the interviewee’s time constraint.” “Follow up: If I need additional information, is it best to contact you by phone or e-mail?”
