I have a few questions regarding interviews:
1. How easily is information shared with candidates (I assume this will vary depending on the interviewer)?
2. I sometimes find that my initially framework is incorrect/not the best. However the feedback is that I am able to transition very well to the correct path. Is this something I should be concerned about? Usually after I present my initial framework I ask if it sounds reasonable or is a good way to continue...is this a good idea?
3. What is a good way to proceed when stuck or completely unsure of the direction to take? Is there a question I can ask that would make the interviewer more willing to guide me if I am stuck?
4. In terms of providing a final recommendation, how is my structure:
- Describe situation: Our client is company X and is thinking of doing... or is experiencing... and wanted advice about...
- I recommend that the client ...... For # of reasons.
- Reason 1
- Reason 2
- However many strong reasons there are. No more than 4
- For these reasons I would recommend the client ...(recommendation)...
- Mention any potential risks
- Considerations/implementation advice
5. In terms of sharing an initial structure, How should this be done... I have tried reading all my "buckets" and then sharing a few specific details within each bucket. However, I find it most comfortable to share bucket 1 then share some specifics and then do the same with bucket 2 and so on.... Is this a good approach?
Thank you and I appreciate any advice!
