Managing Silence (Behavior-Based Interviewing)

Being uncomfortable with silence during an interview may be the most common problem interviewers face, and most will just change the subject and move on. But look at it this way. When candidates are silent, it usually means they're thinking. That silence is your friend, your tool. If you change the subject and move on, you may be shutting down a revealing answer. So respect silence.
