It is vital to listen to what the interviewer says and to what – exactly – you are being asked. This will, of course, help you give relevant answers. But it will also give you many important clues as to what the company is looking for, and as to whether the job would be a good ‘fit’ for your own goals and ambitions. Don’t jump in to interrupt your interviewer under any circumstances, and try not to ramble on yourself. It’s not just polite to listen well; it also makes sense.
EXPLAIN YOUR RESUME
If you are asked about your previous experience, don’t imply that the interviewer should have read your resume more closely. If you are being asked about your career, it is because the interviewer wants you to expand on what is stated in your resume. The resume is the bare bones of your work history; the interview allows you to flesh that history out. Don’t allow modesty or shyness stop you from using the opportunity to the maximum.
