The Good (and bad) News about Interviews
Unfortunately, some new research is revealing a bit more about interviews and the fact that they might not be as reliable as we once thought. Fast Company's recent magazine deals with this issue, making the case that a good interview is just that- a good snapshot of a person but maybe not an accurate indicator of a person's work performance.
Turns out more companies are now relying on work samples, mini-performances and even writing tests. They figure that a person's ability to handle real workplace issues outweighs their ability to cleverly answer what can too-often be planned questions.
How will you conduct your next interview?
