Listening Power -The Jobseeker’s Secret Weapon Lawrence Alter
Former U.S. Secretary of State Dean Rusk once said, “One of the best ways to persuade others is with your ears — by listening to them.” Most managers and executives love to talk about their companies and themselves. When you listen, you acquire knowledge, and knowledge gives you power. It allows you to channel your marketing efforts to emphasize how your acquired skills will help a company to solve their problems and contribute to growth and profits. It helps the employer see you as a better “fit” for their specific organizational culture.
