Manahan: Talkative Interviewers
Interview expert Rowan Manahan gives outstanding advice on what to do when the job interviewer talks too much. My favorite part:
If you are being hit with closed questions (the kind of questions that demand ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers) make sure you immediately follow your monosyllabic answer with an explanation as to why this is your approach, how it has worked for you in the past and why this makes you different/special/wonderful. You need to do this without drawing breath!
