What are your general comments?

"This was my hardest interview, also my first. The girl ahead of me walked out literally white in the face. She found it very intimidating to sit infront of the panel and have them shoot questions at her. They can be tough, but stand your ground and work to direct the conversation. They will let you do that if you try. Remember to laugh, smile and act like you are having a good time, even if you are hating every second of it. " Report Response
