One of the feedbacks that I keep getting is that I am sometimes silent in the middle of the case. This is when I am thinking about what step I should take next. But I guess it feels uncomfortable for the interviewer, and that I am silent for too long. Sometimes I do get a bit lost with new information and numbers. How do I become quicker at determining what the next steps to take are, or decrease the awkward silences?
Also, sometimes I am analysing a particular branch of my framework. However, I uncover an interesting piece of information that will require me to jump to another branch. Do I finish off my current branch, or jump to the other branch and return to analysing the current branch later? Thanks!
