Interview Myths

When heading into an interview, it’s easy to have a lot of preconceived notions about the process. However, there are a few myths that might surprise you.

Interview preparation can be intimidating. Did you do all of your research about the company? About the position? One thing you might not think about is the interviewer may not be as prepared for your interview as you expect. Perhaps they were recruited last minute to the task and aren’t fully apprised of the role or your resume.

We’ve all heard that succinct and concise answers are best when interviewing, but sometimes this is not necessarily the case. For some questions, more thorough answers will be appropriate. However, don’t forget to stay on track—your answer may be longer, but it should still pertain to the question.
