Keep the scoreboard ticking over
By Liam Horan, Career Coach, Sli Nua Careers

Every Sunday, you will hear a GAA manager or pundit extolling the virtues of ‘keeping the scoreboard ticking over.’

It implies a consistency of effort rather than a fascination with occasional dramatic inputs.

A job interview is the same.

Keep the scoreboard ticking over.

Keep talking about things that help them see you as the right person for the job.

Every answer is important. Don’t wait for the interview panel or yourself to warm up. Don’t hold out for the Eureka moment – it may not arrive.

From first answer to last, concentrate on transmitting important and relevant information.

In our sessions with clients, we work on helping them to do just that. While goals are nice, and powerful, sometimes you can’t force them. Keep the scoreboard ticking over.
