This may sound silly, but... at an interview, after introductions, if the interviewer asks, "how are you today," is it better to say something like "fine, thank you," and cut it off, or go on to ask how he/she is? I am used to saying fine, how about you?, like I would to an aquaintance on the street. Though, I know you're not supposed to put yourself at the level of the employer. For instance, the employer is usually the one who moves to a handshake at the closing, not the other way around. What do you do? Have you ever learned of a right and a wrong way?
