I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter and I'm back with another reminder for you. And this one's about interviewing. One of the things that people do much too often on interviews, is they confess intimate details of their life, their opinions and things along those lines and shoot themselves in the foot. How do they wind up doing this? Interviewers are remarkably capable of getting you to confess intimate details of your life, your opinions, and causing you to step on your foot or shoot yourself in the foot I should say.

Be aware. Do not lower your guard. Pay attention. Look for the macro meaning of the question as well as the micro meaning because interviewers will trip you up. Hope you found this helpful. Follow me on YouTube JobSearchTV.com will take it you to the channel. Have a great day.
