Several people have recommended that I write a blog, and I resisted it for a long time. I worried that I would sound flippant by discussing what I see every day in the interviewing world. What I have discovered is that sharing the stories of humanity that naturally occur during the interview process is actually helping. Interviewing is one of the rare instances where power is completely one-sided. The interviewer completely holds the fate of the candidate in their hands. Have the utmost respect for candidates because usually they have no idea what the interviewer is looking for. Treat your candidates with the best care you can give them- without them, where would you be?
