Listening Tips

43Folders had a couple good links today – here are some tips on listening. I’ve been doing a lot of this lately. Internal job hunting in it’s first phase involves "informational interviews". Basically, a sales pitch from the manager for which you are thinking of working. I don’t know – maybe I’m supposed to sell myself to them as well, but they seem so busy selling their team to me I don’t get much of a chance. And I’ve never had a team I wanted to interview with say no because of an informational interview.
