INTERVIEWEE TIPS



ANSWER THE QUESTION AT HAND
You may want to talk about a lot of different topics, but try to stick to the specific question being asked and answer it to the best of your ability. If you feel the interviewer missed out on an important question, you can address this at the end of the interview.

GIVE DETAIL
The interviewer is not looking for a “yes” and “no” answer. Explain yourself using as much detail and description as possible.

USE ANECDOTES
A great way to give detail is through the use of anecdotes. This means telling a little story that explains your answer.

EXAMPLE OF AN ANECDOTE: “I remember being inspired by my father as a 10-year-old boy. We were working out in the field and…”


SHOW RESPECT
Listen to what your interviewer is asking, show interest in the interview and try to be as interesting as possible. If you’re rolling your eyes, crossing your arms, or giving one-word answers, then you’re not showing respect.

USE BODY LANGUAGE
Body language will help to show the interviewer your enthusiasm and interest. Make eye contact, nod, and use hand gestures to prove that you are an active participant in the interview.
