    When I'm nervous at interview I tend to talk too much. During one discussion at an interview, I talked for 10 minutes - it felt like I couldn't stop myself! Does anyone have any advice on how to be concise and precise with my answers?

    *Bump* - and I should have put 'Dear Theo' in the thread title.

    A while back someone had some advice along the lines of 'Answer the question simply backing it up with evidence or an example and then ask "Would you like further information?" If the answers "No", move on and be prepared should the answer be "Yes, please go on".
