What’s important to you about that?(1B 27:10) Interviewer: That this person seems to fit in well with what we will be doing You: OK obviously you know that seems apparent because if you get someone who doesn’t fit in really well there’s going to be some sort of conflict. I mean when you have someone who’s fitting in what does that allow you to have that’s even really more important Interviewer: A sense of comfort that this person can do the job You: OK Yeah Comfort’s important because that sort of allows you to relax and not have to worry about them.

Please feel free to call me back.(tape 3 4:02) CLOSE #2 I appreciate us talking, letting me know about the job and the company and how we might be able to create a sense of accomplishment together. I realize that you’re going to talk with fifty other people before you’re able to fit me into those ten people that you’ll recommend. As you do that I really appreciate you showing and understanding that there is a certain degree of comfort in doing that. I want to thank you very much and I look forward to hearing from you.(tape 3 4:55) Example of future pacing Adv SS 1 (26:40) As you look her at my resume, I’m sure you can think of all the things you look for in a _____.
