Sure, you want to sell yourself, but talking non-stop during an interview is a turn-off. ‘Some candidates have so much to share that they don’t pay attention to what the interviewer needs,’ says Dorio. ‘I may say to myself, Is this person even listening to me? It makes me think that they wouldn’t be a good listener on the job or that they might be too wrapped up in themselves.’ Instead of yapping away, Dorio suggests showing that you’re a great communicator.
