An Average Life

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 an85% 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.

We owe the mastery of this art to the candidates who often put in hours if not days of effort. Over the years, I’ve observed a few common traits in some of the best interviewers I’ve ever come across. While these traits may seem obvious, it takes time to inculcate. Everyone has witnessed a poor interviewer. Some come across as arrogant, too full of themselves or just bored. You may be the best HR pro out there, but it is possible to be terrible at interviewing despite your achievements. So the next time you step in to take an interview…

Résumé
