When you interview candidates, you typically know within a few minutes whether it’s a thumbs-up or thumbs-down. Realizing this, some employers, including Travelodge, Texas Instruments and Abbott Labs, have taken a page from the “speed dating” trend.

They’re hosting so-called “speed interviews” in which a large number of candidates are called for brief (three to 10 minutes) interviews. If that goes well, they’re brought back for traditional interviews. For more info, google “speed interviews.”
