Fantastic! As a hiring manager myself (among other things), I recommend all of the above.

I'd also add, don't be afraid if your nerves show a bit. It just shows the interviewer you're a real person, not an act. (In fact, half my job is to get you off-script anyway; I've learned that if the person I'm interviewing displays absolute, unyielding confidence, they invariably have an ego the size of Alaska.)

By the way, another question I like asking when I'm the one being interviewed is:

What could I learn now that would best prepare me to get started right away if I were hired?

Not only does that usually leave a good impression, but it also gives me some valuable information about what I'll need to know to do the job.

 

That's great advice and a really good question! Thanks for sharing that!
