Q: When interviewing with multiple people, is it alright to deliver similar responses to different interviewers?
A: The most important thing in any interview is being your authentic self. Don’t feel like you have to change up your story simply for the sake of variety. However, if you find an opportunity to tailor your message to the person you are interviewing with that’s usually an effective strategy. Take note of the interviewer’s background and job function which they generally discuss at the beginning of the interview; you may find you have a perfect way to position your experience that will resonate with that individual.
