Question # 165
Posted Friday September 13
Q) What should you do if the interviewer experiences constant interruptions from the phone or by employees walking into the office?

A) Interruptions give you time to develop suitable follow-up points to the conversation prior to that interruption. This provides an opportunity to sell yourself by showing you are organized and analytical.  Make note on your pad of where you were in the conversation and, looking at it briefly, refresh the interviewer on where you left off.  You can rephrase and add your additional comments and s/he will be impressed with the new information as sell as your level head and organization.
