Play­ing it straight Keys to a suc­cess­ful job in­ter­view

The Daily Telegraph - - News -

Do

Use words that show you un­der­stand your­self. This sug­gests sub­tlety and sen­si­tiv­ity. “I think”, “I sense”, “this feels” fit the bill. Sim­ple con­junc­tions like“but”, “and”, “or” work well.

Don’t

Be a ro­bot. Over-pre­pared an­swers sound in­au­then­tic and in­di­cate an ab­sence of self-eval­u­a­tion. – Be too hon­est if you are not well suited for the job; that could make it worse.
