Many people approach an interview as if it were a test in which the candidate patiently waits to respond to the questions asked by the interviewer. Although some of the question / answer dialogue is required, essentially the candidate is playing on the interviewer’s home court and playing by their rules. It is easy to change the game. There is an old saying, “The more they talk, the smarter that they will think you are.” With the standard q/a format, the interviewer may ask a one sentence question, and the candidate may respond with a one paragraph or one-page response. This normal interaction is the exact opposite of the old saying.
