You’re never going into an interview empty handed, right?! but are you also leaving the interview without anything new written down?
Suggestion: before the interview, make a mental note to write a few keywords that are being asked/discussed during the interview, hopefully without interrupting the flow.
I believe this shows that you are engaged in the conversation, you stand out, as well as showing your studious side.
After the interview is over, reflect and expand on those keywords, while writing a few sentences about the topic, maybe what questions were asked and if you recall how you answered and how you felt while discussing them.
I think you’ll find a pattern in some of the questions that get asked, as well as some self-reflection, and it will also help you prepare for your next interview.
Bonus: write a post-interview summary article on LinkedIn to share with your connections to bring forth additional insights and conversations.
