Interviewing is one of the many responsibilities in my role as a manager. In my career thus far as an applicant I’ve attended eleven interviews in person and taken two over the phone with an 85% success rate.
As an interviewer I’ve conducted over fifty in the past twelve months at a hire rate of 40%. According to my HR associate I have the most rigorous screening process as well as being the most difficult manager (out of the six of us) to impress.
I’m going to share what I’ve learned about the interview process through my experiences as an applicant, employee and employer. Some of these points may seem obvious and I really hope they are, but since each of us have access to different resources perhaps mine can teach you something new.
