Whether or not you agree with the post, the interview tips listed in the article are sound. Here is my spin on the three tips mentioned:
contact is key. It starts at the moment you walk in
the elevator. Say hello to people you meet there. They could be your
interviewers. Continue the eye contact with the receptionist, when you
shake the interviewers' hands, and during the interview.
intelligence is powerful. That includes checking
your audience and understanding the impact of your posture, hand gestures,
and manner of speech.
- Face-to-face communications still rule the day. The clear majority of the "digital natives" we have counseled through the interview process would rather communicate by text or email rather than by telephone or in-person. That is the way you are wired. In an interview, however, you should demonstrate you understand that face-to-face communications are the most important way to be in relationships with colleagues, particularly when a difficult issue needs to be resolved.
