Difficult Interviews

Since I'm looking for a job in a medical office, I'm interviewing with office managers who don't do corporate interviews. One mgr recently just kept asking me, "what questions do you have for me?" We'd talked a lot on the phone, I asked all kinds of things, read everything I could on their website (it's a small medical practice), and left there not knowing how I did at all. I even asked her how my qualifications stacked up, and she said I was very smart. Since most of my interviews are with small practices of 5-20 people, I expect more of the same in future. Any suggestions here?

—Guest Guest Guest

What is a stretch for you the job req?

You should be honest. If you don't have experience in the industry, then say so, but that you're willing to learn. I had experience in the field, but not in the specific industry. Be honest because you don't want to lie and you also don't want them to think you're more experience than you really are.

What is your social media experience?

I didn't have professional social media experience, so I based it off of personal experience.
