Common Interview Trap #2: Talking in Generalities

Here’s another common trap people fall into during interviews.

The Trap: Talk in generalities, saying things like: Teams work better when a leader works on a collaborative basis. It’s good to get the team together right at the start of a project so they buy into the objectives. To the listener, this sounds like you know what you should do but leaves them wondering if you’ve actually done it.

The Solution:  Instead, give examples, in the form of carefully crafted interview stories, to support your claims of how you can help the hiring organization fix its problems.
