Preparing for a Job Interview : Job Interviews: Using Voice


In addition to your nonverbal cues, your voice
can sometimes make or break your interview. Some things that you want to be aware of you
don’t want to talk too fast. If you’re a fast talker and you might end up being nervous
in this particular scenario, make a conscious effort to slow down or have someone tell you
that’s practicing with you that you need to slow down. You don’t want to go too slow and
you need to articulate your words as well. Volume is real important. If you speak very
quietly, you may need to pump up the volume. If you are very loud, you might want to tone
it down a little bit. Also something that you need to be real aware of are vocal mannerisms
and vocal mannerisms are things like you know, like, ok you know like when I was working
for them you know, don’t be doing that. That’s also like uh, uh, uh, and um, um. Those are
vocal mannerisms. That’s one of the things that you can catch when you practice. Ninety
nine percent of the people that have vocal mannerisms don’t even have a clue that they
do it and everybody has something. It’s called idiosyncratic gestures and everybody has something
so find out what yours is and don’t do it. These are the things that you want to practice.
Fix your voice. Be delicious.
