Conquer interviewer bias

by on
in Hiring,Human Resources,Leaders & Managers,Management Training

When interviewing job candidates, beware of giving too much weight to factors such as race, cultural background, age, level of education, religion and so on. This sounds obvious, but many wellintentioned interviewers may not realize that they see what they want to see in people, not what’s really there. Such judgments can unfold in subtle or even subconscious ways. As a precaution, have another interviewer join you when you meet with key candidates. When you compare notes later, you can determine to what extent your partiality influenced your evaluation of the interviewees.
