Next 5 Things an Interviewer Expects but Never Tells You-3 Next

Timing

Your answer should have ended five minutes ago.

It's natural to ramble when you're nervous, but know when to stop yourself before you begin to give TMI. Get to your point and stay on topic. If the original question was about your educational background and you're now talking about your freshman year roommate, it's time to shut up.

Know where the line between appropriate and inappropriate lies and do not cross it. This doesn't just mean being polite, but also professional. If your last boss was terrible and you're asked about him, focus on flaws with his managerial style, not his personality or character. This is an opportunity to tell the interviewer what type of relationship you prefer to have with a superior, not bash an old boss.

We've all had those interviews. You've done your research on the company. You have great answers lined up for the most frequently asked questions. You've even spent time looking at those really weird questions that interviewers love to throw at you to see how you deal with a curve ball. You're dressed for success. You're ready. Unfortunately, the interviewer really doesn't seem interested from the start.

According to Heather Huhman, writing for Glassdoor, even if you give stellar responses in an interview, an interviewer expects other things but never tells you. In this slideshow, we've highlighted Huhman's five insights that can help you during your next interview.
