This challenge is highlighted in the sixth instalment of Finding Talent, a training video by TRIEC that follows the fictional experiences of MetroCan Technologies as it considers hiring a skilled immigrant named Tarek.
In this chapter, Tarek arrives for his interview. Both he and the hiring manager experience culturally-based misunderstandings as they engage in pre-interview small talk.
Tips for Employers:
- Neutral topics are best for small talk.
- Body language is an important component of communication.
