What are your general comments?

"My interviewer came across as serious, yet down-to-earth. The questions he asked were fairly general in nature, however there were some that required a great deal of thought. He certainly made sure that my responses were not a bunch of bosh; he expanded upon nearly every question. I am not sure what type of impression I left on my interviewer. I attribute my ambiguity largely in part to the fact that I was extremely nervous; and because I felt it difficult to truly express who I am in just 30 minutes." Report Response
