What are your general comments?

"The closed interview can be good or bad. You need to keep up with the conversation, while also remembering to say everything that is not on your application that you want them to know. If they don't bring it up, you have to work it into the conversation without sounding too awkward. Some interviewers also say that if they forgot to ask something that you want to talk about, just tell them. " Report Response
