So for today's you know you're from Rhode Island I will share this video and let it speak for itself.
As a native Rhode Islander, I can tell you everything is based on location and the amount of time it takes to get there haha and everyone knows everyone. The state is small after all ; ) but that's what makes RI so awesome.
Give the video a watch, I guarantee Rhode Islanders will laugh!
Everyone hates those awkward first moments when you are sitting in an interview. Whether it’s a video call or in-person those few seconds of total silence is enough to make your palms sweat.
The key to forging a connection during an #interview is doing two things:
1 - Finding something in common with the interviewer
2 - Answering questions in a way that tells YOUR story
Ice breakers are a fantastic way to get the conversation rolling! You could begin by saying...
"It's a pleasure to meet you. How was your weekend and/or week been so far?"
This demonstrates to the interviewer that you're confident, proactive, caring, and friendly. Avoid talking about cliche things like the weather. Mention something interesting that you did that weekend after they discuss theirs. Be sure to listen attentively and respond!
"I read something really interesting yesterday."
Discuss it a little and if the interviewer seems interested continue, if not move on. Just be sure not to take over the conversation and allow the interviewer to engage as well!
"Have you been working on anything interesting lately?"
Interviewers will love the chance to reflect and respond to what it is they’ve worked on or are currently working on. This will also provide further insight into what they are doing now in the company as well as give them a chance to talk about their own accomplishments. And who doesn't want to do that?
Find something in common
Consider taking a quick glance at the interviewer's social accounts and discover some common interests. Perhaps he/she is really into bowling and you started your own league two years ago. Or perhaps they love dogs and you do too. Whatever the case, when they ask the inevitable "How are you?" you can reply casually mentioning your common interest(s). For example: "I am doing great thanks, just had a bowling tournament last week and we took third place!" OR "The weather has been great so I've been walking my black lab a lot. Do you have any pets?" This will allow you to forge that connection and make things more comfortable.
