You might do better in an interview by making the interviewer talk more.
Just hush and listen for once:
When anyone is going to an interview I say, “try and get the interviewer to talk more than you do. Keep asking them questions.” Because the research shows that the more the interviewer talks, the more favourably he or she views the interviewee.
