Not Reading The Signs
Every now and then the interviewer will try to help you out by dropping hints of what they want to hear from you. It’s crucial and in fact one of the best interview tips to notice these small signs, which can commonly be demonstrated in the form of specific question wording or subtleties in body language. The best way to respond to this is to consider what the employer might want to hear, and how they may hope to hear it.
For instance, a corporation such as a law firm or government facility is likely to want responses using the STAR method (Situation, Task, Action, Result) and a less professional workplace such as a cafe might desire a more informal situation for an interview. Just use your head, and if you have the resources find out from the company website or from employers who work there if they know which method is best. Often it pays to contact and question the person who is potentially hiring you and ask them what they would most like to hear.
