Craig taught me this about 2 years ago now and it really works. When I am interviewing now it is a conversation instead of an interview, if I can steer it in that direction. So interviewers are the stick to the questions they wrote down type but I have had great conversations with so people in interviews. It also helps you learn the values of your potentially boss.

It was a learned skill, but as you said I learned to relax. I did A LOT of rehearsing with others and by myself. Just asking myself the questions you know they will ask and having my answer ready but not overly practiced either. I also would do research on the company on (now I have the advantage b/c the job I was working for had this but there is a free version). That also gave me some more information to talk about as far as their competitors, some of the industry news and anything new with their company.
Ok well that’s my comment hoped it helped and I am still working on my conversations.

I love point #5! What a great question to ask. And if I have rehearsed my value proposition, I'll be able to pull up different points, as required by the direction of the conversation. Thanks, Craig!
