Suppose you have an interview somewhat out of your league. Should you swing for the fences with your answers--i.e., give high-risk, high-reward answers--or just give your typical spiel?

Recent Grad,
There is no such thing as an interview out of your league. If you were shortlisted then you are in the running. Also, the only "typical spiel" should be earnestly answering questions and engaging with the people you meet at the interview.

Thanks. I guess it's easy to chalk things up to mistakes sometimes.
