How to get away from the classical frameworks even if their accuracy is tempting

Anonymous A

Hey Guys,

I currenctly have the problem that I tend to use classical frameworks like 3C&P or others if feasable.

But I have heard and read not only here on PrepLounge that this is not welcomed by interviewers especially at the big three. Even if I try to adjust the framework to the case it is still obvious what is the base for my structure.

So what do you think how to overcome this challenge?

Thank you very much for your help.

Easiest way is to substitute the generic words such as 'competitors', with the ones relevant to the case.

Another way is to add or subtract one or more variables from the generic framework
