One of the ways I like to give back is by answering career questions on Quora. One recent question is one that I have been asked numerous times and want to share my answer here on the blog.
A savvy candidate would definitely prepare for the interview. However, It can go very wrong if the candidate over-rehearses. For this reason, I recommend to my clients to use bullet-points and not remember a script.
A candidate who is over-reliant on a script can jeopardize the interview by doing the following:
Many candidates are not aware that they actually control the “feel” of the interview in how they carry themselves, non-verbal and verbal cues and engaging the interviewer through “connection.” I recommend that candidates prepare but remain aware. Lead the interview into more of a discussion, than an “interview.”
