After submitting your job application and waiting an agonizing amount of time, you’ve finally landed an interview for a position you’re absolutely thrilled about. Congratulations! If you’re serious, you’re probably going extraordinary lengths to research the company, talk to current and past employees, and prepare stories for those pesky behavioral questions you’re likely to get in the interview. That’s great!
But, even with the most prepared interview candidates, I’ve found that a lot of people still make one critical mistake. They’ll deliver absolutely fantastic and relevant stories, and I’ll be completely hooked—all the way up until they end with, “and… yeah” or just an awkward pause.
So, how exactly can you prevent yourself from flubbing the end of your answer? Practice definitely makes perfect, but rarely will you be able to prepare for each individual question the interviewer will ask.
