What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview and I was extremely nervous. I think it probably was apparent and affected the interview. My best advice is to relax as much as possible and use the opportunity to have a discussion with the interviewer. I felt that I was in the mode of answering specific questions followed by awkward pauses. My first interviewer was very nice - I didn't realize how nice until I met me second interviewer. Not that the second guy was mean, maybe a little pompous, it is just that he would look through papers as I was answering his questions. " Report Response
