principles of effective communication

cultural differences there will be some difference in communications here as some people are not open to other races as much as others as there cultural differences they might not agree with each other or pretend to not like each other but not know each other just being ignorant meaning if an employer has different cultural backgrounds from a worker they might dis agree or fail to communicate in a proper manor and the skill would be to look beyond all of this and communicate with different cultures and be able to communicate properly.
also there is adapting your voice to make your self more assertive and loud to be heard clearly and fluently as well as being able to make seance of what you are saying without mumbling. whilst in an interview you can use some technology to make your self stand ou t by either having a digital portfolio or presentation about your self and skills that you could bring to the job/ there is also methods of using questions and answers to ask the employers and this will improve the interviewers opinion of you and again make you stand out from others/ having presentations will engage the audience and become more interested in imploying or look at you and understand what you want to happen or say aswell as make you stand out from others. which would be genarall communication skills

interpersonal skills would be

verbal communications effective verbal communications firstly begins with clarity which is slowing down and speaking more thoughtfully and not being rushed through and rushing responces to questions and conversaitions immediatley as pausing and considder answers better as a thaught full person is better than a rushed unthaughtfull person

non verbal communication is people notice weather you are aware of your actions or not by body language is speaking constantly as it shos how you are feeling and shows what you are saying facial expressions like eye contact posture voice and gesturs and phisacaly positioning yourself phisicaly in a room

listening listening is important because you have to listen to what people are saying to you/telling you as well as feedback from staff also being able to listen to others in groups and other scenarios

being responsible and held accountable for actions that you perform and be able to be responsible for your actions and admit to doing wrong and avoid lying

being assurtive is to stand up for yourself and to seem agressive but is the only way to get your ideas across to others also standing up for what you beleve in.

communication can be also used in writing such as use of emoticons, letters, fax, emails, spelling and grammar, relevance, proofreading and note taking which will extend to the employer that you have knowledge os spelling and wording emoticons would not be used in professional text but toward friends in a banter manner fax would be used if an email is not available to receve letters making sure that the letter is relevant to the topic at hand and not divert off subject
