The Interviewer's Shoes

All kinds of goofy things happen in interviews.  Crazy questions.  Bluster.  Fluffed up claims of accomplishments and skills……etc.

It’s a good idea to put yourself in the interviewer’s shoes.  Ask yourself what they want.  What the interviewer wants is to hire someone who will do the job they need to fill really well.  To make an impact on the company and to make the company better, more profitable.  If you can’t do that the interview is pointless.  If you can do that, you just need…

Ghosting has become quite a thing throughout the recruiting world.  Going completely silent (non-responsive) when one decides to go in another direction, loses focus, or doesn’t know what to say at the moment is not confined to the dating world anymore.

Opportunity Cost

Opportunity cost is huge in recruiting.  It’s important in all walks of life, but even more so in recruiting.

Wasted time on a search that is impossible or nearly impossible.  Wasted time on a candidate that doesn’t work out or interviews for a job that you aren’t going to get.  You don’t get that time back and we all know that there is a search that will fill, and a candidate that will fill the role, and a right job for everyone.  Wasted time is time not spent on the one that works. …
