#149: Interview Tip: Don't Ramble

When preparing for your interview, rehearse concise, to-the-point answers to the usual questions: Tell me about yourself, what are your biggest accomplishments, your strengths and weaknesses, and so on. Record yourself speaking so you can observe your delivery and make adjustments as needed. If you ramble, you're not only telling the interviewer that you didn't prepare, you're also confessing: "I have no idea how I can contribute."
