If you’ve been interviewing candidates for a while, you’re all too familiar with rehearsed answers that sound great when said out loud but don’t tell you much about who the candidate really is. After all, anyone can regurgitate lines, right?
Honesty in a conversation is always appreciated but when it comes to interviews, there is such a thing as being “too honest”. Even after years of going to job interviews, candidates still haven’t figured out how honest they should be with their interviewers.
Have you ever left a job interview feeling pretty good about how it went, only to never hear from the company again? There’s no need to be too hard on yourself, you probably were a “good” candidate that met most of the requirements for the job opening but maybe you weren’t the best.
