Non-traditional interview tips?

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Jun 25, 2013 11:07 pm

What are some non-traditional interview tips that work extremely well if you can pull them off?

I am very outgoing and personable, but feel like I cannot really express myself in an interview. I am too worried about breaking decorum that I feel like it may hurt me.

Is there any latitude in conduct if you can "pull it off" so to speak?

If you are outgoing and personal use your common sense and read social cues

To deal with not having local ties. Just tell them about your fiance who grew up there.

This doesn't work for women because we demand you be a shrew instead.

Tell the attorney about asking this question, pause for three full seconds without breaking eye contact, and then say "wouldn't it be weird if I were really like that?"
