Practice your ladder interviewing skills online

Back in faculty I was thrilled after I read about this interviewing technique. I started practicing it on my friends to become better at it and managed to keep a friend talking for about an hour by climbing to her previous answer… over and over again…

Surfing the web recently brought me to Omegle, a random chat site where you can type to strangers. Why is this cool, you may ask, it’s just another site helping people procrastinate… Well, yes, but if you use it for the right reasons it might pay off. Image you have a virtual person with whom you can play reporter. They can always leave, some of them are rude and the majority is not looking for an extensive conversation… so more work on your shoulders to keep them talking.

Have a go at it and give me a shout if you know other ways to improve this technique.
