What Are Interview Skills? A Definition

Interview skills are highly polished communication skills that are often applied to interactions between two people. It may be a formal boardroom occasion or an informal watercooler conversation, but there is everything to play for in interview situations. There is risk of being caught off guard in the intimacy or by the unpredictability of the interaction, so it’s important to have a plan, to understand whom you're talking to, to know what you mean to say, and to identify the effect that you hope to have on your counterpart.

Interview Skills: Examples

Avoid the pitfalls

Avoid the pitfalls

Human resources professionals have a long list of items that can ruin a promising interview --knowing what to avoid is just as important as knowing what to do. Ensure that you walk into your next interview ready and able to avoid mistakes.

Interview Process

Shape the process

An interview isn't simply a 30-minute conversation with an HR rep. It's a lengthy process with multiple phases that can last weeks or even months. Developing a gameplan for the entire event is critical. Discover strategies and techniques that will put you in the driver's seat.

Adapt your approach

Adapt to the environment

Job interviews reflect today's professional environment. They're done over the phone, by email, via virtual conferencing, and in person. Each calls for a different approach and has definitive pros and cons. Learn to be flexible in and out of the interview to maximize your chance of landing the job.

Would you like to improve your interview skills, but are unsure how to do so? Perhaps you know what you want to achieve but you don’t know what key skills you need to get there?
