In an executive interview, you are entering a highly competitive situation, and every technique of persuasion will help.
In this video above, Tammy Kabell introduces six "magic" words that are highly emotive, and therefore highly persuasive in any communication. These can be some of the most effective job search strategies and job search advice you can use in executive interviews.
Tammy also gives you examples of how to use each word in an interview situation. Learning these six simple words can help you gain an advantage in your executive career search, or really in any situation in your life.
For instance, the first magic word in an interview is the word "YES." So you'll want to ask questions of the interviewer that elicit the response of "YES." In fact, the more times you get an interviewer to say "YES" in the conversation, especially if you are talking to the ultimate decision-maker, the more likely it will be that you'll get the offer.
This technique is swiped from sales, where studies have shown that if you are able to get someone to say yes seven times in a conversation, they are much more likely to buy your product or service. And don't you agree that in a job search, YOU are the product/service, and you are also the salesperson trying to sell it? (...and I just got you to say YES in your head.)
You'll find five more of these highly persuasive words in this video and exactly how to put them into play in an executive interview.
