Stop With The Cliché Interview Answers

Interview managers are tired of people claiming to be perfectionists and team players. “You know all those interview answers you just memorized? Forget about them! Why? Because hiring managers are sick of hearing the same ol’ generic answers to their questions…They want a real (albeit qualified) person who can hold a real conversation — flaws and all,” reported Career Attraction. “Instead of saying ‘I’m a perfectionist,’ for example, tell them about a time when you used your unique skills to perfect a difficult paper, project or proposal. This will certainly help you stand out in a crowded sea of sameness.”
