Answer Briefly

by Dona DeZube

When it comes to talking during an interview, sometimes less is more. As a general rule, you should speak one-third of the time and definitely no more than half of the time. That’s because the best interviews have a give-and-take atmosphere where you’re discussing who the company is looking for, why you’re the right candidate and how having you on board will solve the firm’s challenges. To do this, you need to ask questions and try to draw out your interviewer rather than talking about yourself nonstop. When it’s your turn to speak, don’t hesitate to tout yourself — just remember to stop talking after you do.
