Quell that ‘feeling’ about job candidates

by on
in Hiring,Human Resources

As the person you’re interviewing starts to answer your first question, you’ve already made a preliminary call about whether he or she would make a good hire.

That’s the way most of us think when interviewing. But should we? Why trusting that intuitive “Yea” or “Nay” voice often results in a bad hire:

1. When you rule out candidates too soon, you tune out and tend to miss the good things they say later on.

2. When you decide too soon to hire someone, your critical thinking dulls, and you minimize faults and defects that pop up later in the interview or while you’re checking the candidate’s references.

Better: Place a clock or watch where you can see it, and refuse to decide “Hire” or “Don’t hire” for the first 15 minutes of an interview.
