February 20th Topic: Jedi Mind Tricks for Job Seekers

Presenter: Master Job Search Jedi, Paul Cameron

Wouldn’t it be great if you could wave your hand in front of an employer and say, “You will release the other candidates from consideration and hire me for this position.

Of course they would respond, “We will release the other candidates and hire you for this position!

The reality is that the right words and body language can directly change their thoughts about your candidacy. This may seem like fantasy, but it truly isn’t. The “force” I speak of is rooted in statistically documented human tendencies.

There are specific, involuntary facial expressions that, once you see them, will tell you what the interviewer thought of your answer. There are physical movements and word choices that have statistically proven to influence others to make more favorable decisions about you – over 70% more favorable. There are preparations you can make before a meeting that have nothing to do with your qualifications for the job that will dramatically improve your chances of getting hired.

You have more control over others thoughts than you think. Here’s a Jedi Mind Trick for you in the form of two questions:

1. On a scale of 1 to 10, where 10 means, “I will definitely be there“, how likely are you to be at this event? Actually think of a number before reading the next question.

2. Why wasn’t your number lower? Again, actually think of an answer before moving on.

Did you notice when I laid out the 10 scale that I only assigned a value to the top end and didn’t draw your attention to the bottom? Nor did I assign values to any of the middle numbers because my definitions for those numbers could be different than yours and thereby create a disconnect between us. I simply defined the best answer, “I will definitely be there” to focus your attention where I wanted it. …but that wasn’t the Jedi Mind Trick.

By asking why your number wasn’t lower, if you engaged with the question and actually thought of an answer, then your thoughts were forced to defend the reasons why your number was as high as it was, thereby influencing you to sell yourself on why you will likely be there! One carefully chosen question changed your mindset from, “tell me why I should go” to you thinking about all the reasons why you will go. The force is real my young padawan, join us at this event to begin your Jedi training.
