  • Respond appropriately in a conversational tone but avoid over-communicating.
  • Reinforce ability to communicate effectively by speaking clearly and avoiding “um”, “you know”, “like”, and other slang terms.
  • Remember to listen actively. A good interview is a two way conversation that flows both ways.
