When you enterrepparttar 125477 interviewer’s office, you notice her credentials onrepparttar 125478 wall: College degree from Connecticut, specialty credential fromrepparttar 125479 UK, master’s degree from Louisiana, photo of her in front ofrepparttar 125480 Great Wall of China.

Yes, you could ask her aboutrepparttar 125487 photo of her andrepparttar 125488 governor of your state, but it’s more subtle, and shows higher EQ if you find a way to work it appropriately intorepparttar 125489 conversation. It’s smoother; less contrived.


If you don’t get, and sustain,repparttar 125490 interviewer’s attention, it won’t matter what you say. You won’t be heard. You won’t be remembered. The point is to stand out, but to stand out in a positive way.
