It’s past the close date on my application and I haven’t heard anything. Should I chase?

Question: If I chase up my application, will I seem pushy?

I talk too much in interviews

December 11th, 2009

Question: I’ve just completed a mock interview and the biggest piece of feedback was something I already knew. I can’t answer a question without loading it with so much detail that the interviewer loses interest. I even write in that level of detail when I’m doing interview prep – pages and pages of it. I know my subject and I don’t suffer with nerves. How can I train myself to be more succinct?

How can I get constructive feedback from interviewers?
