Interview Tip #14
When interviewing, give concrete answers.
Yesterday, I gave made a really long post about interview prep. Rereading it, I should have focused on one core element: giving concrete answers to questions you are asked in the interview.
Give examples from your experience that demonstrate your knowledge and skills. Show confidence in your skills and be positive about what you have done.
But, how do you wow the interviewer with your stellar skills and experience without sounding inauthentic? Standing out from a crowded pack of applicants can be difficult, but there are ways to show potential employers that you’re a qualified candidate.
Giving specific and concrete examples of your skills provide a glimpse into your authentic self and the work you’ve accomplished to bring you to this moment.
