Hi, everyone. I'm Brian Krueger with and this is The Job Search Minute. Here is a simple technique to add more power to your interview examples and stories. Use the power of the pause. As you come to the conclusion of your example or story, and just before you present the final outcome, simply pause. Using a 2-second pause will emphasize the importance of what you are about to say, and make it more memorable. For example, “…and then a received a call from my manager. (Pause).

I was the only intern to ever receive this award.” Use the power of the pause in your interview. This has been The Job Search Minute, for more career information please visit
