Job Interviews 1.2

The interview can be of poor method of selection if the people involved in the process are not trained or aware of the pitfalls that may occur and lack of skill to avoid making mistakes. Pitfalls include

  • Thinking ahead to next question instead of listening to answers
  • Interrupting or answering the question instead of allowing candidate to answer.
  • Being selective about what you want to hear.

Some interviews place more importance on negative impressions than on any posstive evidence they encounter during interview - as if they are looking for a reason to dismiss the candidate'

Some come with a set of preconceptions before they even met candidates, forming impressions from CVs, covering letters and application forms.
