Secret from a recruiter: “When responding to questions, answer completely giving one to two examples to support your response, yet be succinct. Interviewers are often on a schedule and can lose patience when a candidate rambles. Finally, help the interviewer help you! Come prepared with your story. Be specific and make a clear case for why you are the best candidate for the job.” – Eileen Springer, Talent Acquisition & Development
