Interviewees 'must connect emotionally'

People heading into a job interview can help to boost their chances of success by connecting with the interviewer on an emotional level, it has been claimed.

Patricia Seabright, founder and managing director of Archimedes Consulting, said the key thing is to get off to a good start and create a strong first impression, but then the trickiest part is capitalising on this.

In order to set themselves apart from other people interviewing that day, the key is to create a long-lasting impression on the interviewer by connecting with them on an emotional level.

"To stand out in the crowd you need to connect with your audience on an emotional as well as a rational level. Many in business remain absolutely clinical in and lose the human appeal," she explained.

In addition to the data, argument and facts they are delivering, people should not lose sight of what it actually means to their audience, the expert added, and quoted the famous American author and poet Maya Angelou.

"People will forget what you said, forget what you did - they will never forget how you made them feel'," Ms Seabright added.
