There’s a surprising number of really terrible interviewers out there: interviewers who treat interviews like a casual get-to-know-you chat rather than rigorously exploring the candidate’s skills and experience … interviewers who ask goofy and useless questions like “if you were an animal, what kind of animal would you be?” … interviewers who devise terrible exercises that demean their candidates and won’t help them identify the strongest hire … and many more.
I recorded a piece for the BBC about terrible interviewers and what companies need to fix in their hiring. It’s about three minutes long and you can listen here.
Additionally, I did an interview with Marketplace Morning Report about why people avoid taking time off and what employers can do about it. It’s also about three minutes long, and you can hear it below.
