Shhh! You shouldn’t be the only one speaking in the interview


Interviews may make you nervous. 

You may be nervous about meeting new people, you may worry you’ll say the wrong thing or you may fear the interviewer’s questions are designed to make you look foolish. Regardless of the source of your nerves, you panic.

You’re asked about your last job and you begin to babble about silly policies, old technology, a bad boss, unused sick days or a project gone wrong. You hear them say, “Tell me about yourself” and launch into an in-depth explanation of every job on your résumé. While you chatter away, you fail to realize the glazed look and bored fidgeting going on across the table.

No matter how nervous you may be, learn to pick up the cues:
  • softening of the facial features
  • fidgeting with a pen
  • stacking papers
  • a lack of note taking
  • crossing and uncrossing legs
  • leaning back and folding arms
These are all methods of communication that indicate you’ve lost your audience.

Be sensitive to the listener's body language as it can tell you you’ve been talking too much.
