In this article, we’ll be sharing with you some tips on how to improve your communication skills to land a job. It will help if you strengthen your eloquence, especially when you’re looking for international opportunities.
Two most vital receptive skills to develop are your reading and listening skills.
By listening actively, you are ensuring that the person you are speaking to is heard. Instead of focusing on yourself, formulate a response by listening to what the other person is saying. The reason why candidates fail at interviews is their inability to listen to the recruiter’s questions which consequently leads to inadequate responses. Also, another reason job seekers fail is lack of preparation.
For example, if a recruiter asks a job candidate questions like “What do you know about this company?”. The candidate shouldn’t reply with “ I do not know much about the company”. Instead, the candidate must provide a response that shows interest in the company.
By providing appropriate answers, it shows you’ve done your research, and you’re genuinely interested in the job.
Also, showing a sense of passion about the company keeps the recruiter engaged and more in tuned with what you have to say.
Another vital skill needed to land a job is reading. Frequent reading about your industry puts you in a better position to answer interview questions naturally.
