If you want to reach the level of becoming a successful communicator, then you’re going to have to learn which questions to ask. When an interviewer is asking you questions such as times when you had to reiterate other’s opinions, you can ask relevant clarifying questions to get their personal input on the subject, and then continue to let them speak without saying anything back. Also try to eliminate any non-verbal signals that you may be emitting.
- The interviewer wants to know if you will take the time to absorb the other person’s response before you respond.
- It is okay to tell the interviewer that you like to take notes to help you remember what the other person is telling you.
- One key is to know when to ask questions, yet not interrupt the person who is speaking.
