This blog is dedicated to improving the interview process for both the job candidate and the hiring manager. It contains information the candidate can use to “interview their best” and hiring managers can use to make a better more informed “best fit” hiring decision.
An employment interview is a challenging process for both the job candidate and the hiring manager. Typically, neither person has a great deal of experience interviewing and making a hiring decision based on a limited interaction is risky at best. It is no wonder that an interview only has a 50% success rate.
