Don’t be afraid to take a moment to think about a question, or ask your interviewer to repeat it. It shows that you are considering your answer, that you want to understand, and it demonstrates your communication skills.

Very helpful service. So much so that I got a new job at an interview within weeks - have been unsuccessful for over a year at interview. Thank you.
