Interview Tip of the Month:

Don't Overshare in Your Job Interview

Strike the right balance when it comes to divulging personal information in an interview:

  1. Let the interviewer set the tone. Pay close attention to their formality and word choice. Mirror their tone as the conversation progresses. 
  2. Stick to "cocktail party" details. Some interviewers want to get to know you as a person, but don't give them any more detail than you would give to a person you meet at a party. Keep it light. 
  3. Always take the high road. Even if you are stuck in a miserable work environment, do not speak ill of your current boss or employer.
  4. Keep "failures" professional. When you're asked what your biggest weakness or failure has been, don't bring up the time you cheated on your spouse or the fact that you eat a gallon of ice cream every Friday.
