FULL DISCUSSION
 

I know it's important to communicate with the interviewer during the interview. But how much / little should you talk ? I tend to think better when I'm not talking and then explaining to others later when I have understood the concept. How do you think this should flow ?

 

This varies from one person to other, for me I always start with a bit of dummy talks to make them feel comfortable because I've also been on the other side of the table and then we transition to the presentation, I will say just be nice and when you have the chance to talk be authentic, if you don't know something don't try to come up with an answer right away, you can say that you need time to understand the question and I also like a lot when they make questions to clarify assumptions because then they can make a fully informed solution/answer.
