Building Rapport for the Job Interview

It is necessary to make a lasting impression during any job interview. While your skills, experience, and work ethic may spark the interest of the hiring manager what makes YOU stand out from the crowd is the relationship you build with the person interviewing you. This guide will give you a few quick steps to building that “fake friendship” necessary to get you the job you want!

Before the interview: Find out who will be interviewing you. Do some research online (Try Google, LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.). What do you have in common? What topics can you discuss besides the job?

During the interview: Start with some small talk. What’s small talk? Chit chat? Talk about the weather. Ask how the interviewer is doing. Discuss your commute to the job interview site. And my golden tip? Make the interviewer laugh! They will always remember an applicant who is funny. Just one joke may land you the job.

Topics to avoid: Never talk about politics or religion during an interview. These are taboo subjects in English.

After the interview: Be sure to send a follow-up e-mail thanking the interview for their time. Try to repeat some of the topics you discussed during the interview to remind him or her of who you are.


Now that you’ve mastered building rapport during an interview it’s time to focus on key elements like describing your experience and answering the interviewer’s questions. Book a session with me today to learn the subtleties of a job interview in English, have your CV revised, and do a mock interview to ace your next job interview.

Want a teacher who knows what they're doing? You've found her! I'm a PhD student studying Linguistics: Second Language Acquisition. I have mastered and use only the best and most current ways to learn languages based on today's research in my sessions! Plus, I always make sure we have a lot of fun and laughs too! I'm a current English instructor at the University of Florida and a recent adult ESOL instructor at Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Florida. Previously, I also taught at the English Language Institute of UF, instructing students of all ages. I've taught French at the Ohio University to undergraduates and at the University of Florida, as well. I've been teaching since 2009 and I am SLAT (Second Language Acquisition and Teaching) Certified by the University of Florida. As an instructor, I play the role of a coach. I enable students to focus on their goals and hold them accountable to accomplishing them. I promote student agency and allow students to make choices about their own learning; this way each lesson fits their individual needs and differences. Before being a teacher, I was a success coach for college students. Not only will you learn your target language from me, but also the metacognitive and self-regulatory skills necessary to get ahead in life, your career, and academia! Who else offers that? Overall, I am passionate, dedicated, outgoing, sometimes silly, and, above all, motivating. Let's make an action plan together! It's time to reach your goals!
