Interview Tips for People Who Suffer From Hearing Loss

A typical recruitment process includes two types of job interviews. The first is a phone interview which is designed to ensure that the candidate has the basic skills and experience for the job, and the second a face to face interview which is designed to ensure complete suitability of the candidate for the job based on skills, experience, personality and expectations. As a job seeker, you might be faced with both types of interviews, or just one type depending on the position.

If you are one of the 9 million people in the UK who suffer from hearing loss, a job interview may appear quite challenging, perhaps even complicated. Before we explain how to better your chances of securing the job, you need to know that in the UK employers have an obligation to make reasonable adjustments based on your condition and that hearing loss is a common condition which affects all age groups. The Royal National Institute for Deaf People (RNID), a charitable organisation working on behalf of those suffering from hearing loss, is reporting that 2.4 million hard of hearing are between the ages of 16 years old to 60 years old. This group is representative of the typical active job seeker market.

To improve your chances of a successful job interview, you can use three strategies. These are divided into amplification aids, coping strategies and universal interview tips.

Amplification aids - there are a number of aids which are designed to amplify external sound, so that the sound is enhanced to a suitable level for you to hear it.

1. Hearing Aids - used for face to face or telephone interviews, hearing aids are available free via the NHS or may be privately purchased. The devices are micro-computers which can amplify external sounds and deliver those straight to your ear canal.

2. Amplified Telephone Aids - most telephones and mobile phones are used for telephone interviews are designed for the general public and offer basic amplification levels, often not loud enough for the hard of hearing. There are a number of aids which can amplify the sound of the phone. These are often called ALD or Assistive Listening Aids and include extra loud telephones, extra loud mobile phones and external amplifiers which fit your standard phone.

Coping strategies - these are designed to improve your chances of hearing the interviewer if your hearing loss does not require amplification aids but you suffer from some degree of hearing loss.

3. Ask for a written interview instead of a phone interview - nowadays a telephone interview is common and is used by the employers to short list candidates before a face to face interview. If you are more at ease taking a written interview instead, you should disclose your hearing loss to the recruiter and ask for a written interview instead. Remember, employers have an obligation to make reasonable adjustments and often they will oblige.

4. Position yourself accordingly during a face to face interview - move closer and position yourself so that you are facing the interviewer as close as possible, but leaving enough personal space. Ensure that the room is well lit and you can see the interviewer clearly. Watch the speaker’s face, lips and gestures for clues as to what’s being said.

5. Deal with missing words - if you are concerned about hearing every single word, you should not be. People who do not suffer from hearing loss tend to miss words as well, but they cope with the situation by filling in words. The strategy of filling in words is designed so you understand the concept, rather then every single word. If you missed more than one word and you are concerned about what was said, you should ask the interviewer to repeat the question.

Universal job interview tips - people who suffer from hearing loss may feel greater anxiety over an interview due to hearing loss concerns. By using these job interview tips, you will be able to relax and focus on your answers.

6. Pay attention to your body language - verbal content only provides some of the message and feedback that the interviewer is getting from you, the rest comes from your body language. The best way to prepare is to practice in front of the mirror, paying extra attention to your tone of voice and body language.

7. Do your research - before the interview takes place, write down your recent achievements and how the employer might benefit from your skills and experience. The employer is most interested in your achievements and experience, so having these answers prepared will allow you to focus better and feel more relaxed and confident in your suitability for the position.
