Interview Techniques

Mai and I have been doing mock interviews. She has the ability and natural propensity to go on, and on, and on, and on about something. That's one reason our phone bills are so high! Is this a good interview technique? Obviously, if a question is direct and narrow, such as, "Have you ever been married before?" the answer can only be "no." But if the question were, "Has your fiance been married before?" many people would answer simply "yes" until prodded further. Mai would tend to answer, "yes" and then go on to explain for five minutes about it. Within reason, do you believe that is a good technique with the HCM consulate? To let them stop you when they've heard enough?

Just my opinion but I think simple answers are best at any consulate.

I naturally tend to want to elaborate on things as well but don't think i'd offer any more than what they asked.

best of luck to you both!

Hmmm she sounds like me..... Did she ever want to be a lawyer?.........or a Politician?...... :lol:

Seriously. I agree with WideAwakeintheUSA and KimandRuss. While it's good to explain your answers if they need to explained, less is more where the Consulate is concerned.
