Why You Suck At Interviewing

 When you do something a million times every year, it becomes second nature. We get comfortable. We use the same 3 questions to qualify. We get in a routine.

It works for now. But if you ask the candidate, which you probably haven’t, they’d tell you that you suck at…

How many interviews does it take to hire top talent?

At the Australasian Talent Conference held in Sydney last month, I attended an interesting break-out session on the future of interviewing and whether assessment would make interviews redundant.

Why Candidates Decline Job Offers (And What To Do About It)

Every recruiter has had, or will have, the experience of a candidate declining a job offer, contrary to everything the candidate has said or done up until that point. 

This is a very expensive failure of your recruitment process because at the time of the offer you have completed around 95% of the necessary…

Interviews don’t work. But don’t worry, I have the answer.

My own 143 years of experience in the recruitment industry (that's dog years by the way) has brought me to a place where I find myself agreeing…

How Law & Order teaches you better interviewing skills

‘Objection! Leading the witness! 

‘Objection! Speculation!' 

‘Objection! Relevance?' 

These lines are classic courtroom interjections I have heard in movie and TV dramas for as long as I can remember. 

It's all designed to create greater dramatic tension. How true is it all to real life in a US courtroom? I don't know, as I have never been in one but I certainly enjoy watching the fictionalised courtrooms that the characters in the various…

What's the Max Number of Interviews You Should Go On for One Position?

Google is famous for being a tough hire. According to The Washington Post, candidates are forced, during interviews, to write hundreds of lines of working code and are asked a bunch of brainteaser type questions, like "How many golf balls does it take to fill an airplane?"



It's a sort of hazing that has been running rampant throughout the tech (and other)…

Interviewing: What type of car salesman are you?

There are two things (hopefully) that every person will encounter in their life (among a million other things, but we’ll focus on these two for now).

  1. Interviewing for a job
  2. Buying a (used) car

What do these two things have in common, you ask?  I’m glad you asked, let me tell you why.

Imagine yourself walking into a car dealership to buy a brand new Audi A6 sedan.  You’re going to encounter 1 of 2 car salesman.

  • The skeezy car…

follow-up flubs, fiascoes and failures that frustrate candidates

Plenty of explanations or excuses exist for why many in the recruiting industry decide to put minimal effort into creating a quality candidate experience. One of the most common gripes job seekers have is lack of follow up after they’ve applied for a position. Even worse, many applicants never hear any feedback whatsoever after interviewing. Or, the communication they receive along the way is vague, mystifying, and in some cases downright unprofessional.

 

The following are…

Can Recruiting be Completely Mobile?

Do you remember driving without a cell phone back in the day?  What were we thinking?  What did we do if we were the unfortunate recipients of a flat tire on the highway at 11PM?

We survived.  We walked.  We stuck our thumbs high in the air (not recommended).  That’s what we did back then.  These days, our mobile devices are pretty much our everything and they can do just about everything.

While mobile is critical for every business and function, it’s currently not the most…

What roles and campaigns do video interviews work best for?

I’m regularly asked by recruiters and HR directors what type of roles video interviewing works best for. It’s a very pertinent question, for which there is no simple, right or wrong answer. It depends on a number of factors such as the seniority of role you’re recruiting for, or the size of your organisation.

The first thing to say is, you shouldn’t be thinking of video interviewing replacing face-to-face interviews. Instead, video interviews provide a great way to filter large…

Dear CEO: Hire Me

Two years ago I attended the Annual Carolinas Payroll Conference in Myrtle Beach, SC. As a vendor my role was to raise awareness for my organization and discussion potential career opportunities we had for a client implementation. The next morning at 9:45 AM, I was approached by the conference coordinator and asked if I could step in and do a 45 minute presentation given that one of the…
