Often, I see articles about interviewees making mistakes when looking for a new job. Tips, books, and lists abound, instructing the potential employee on how to prepare for an interview. Conversely, managers need similar help. Many hiring managers can make the same kinds of mistakes that the people they interview make.
See the article by the staff at BNET. They hit on 10 mistakes that managers make while conducting job interviews.
The first three mistakes hit me between the eyes. I have been guilty of the following:
- Talking Too Much
- Gossiping and Swapping War Stories
- Not Asking the Tough Questions
How about you? What mistakes have you made in interviewing? What mistakes have you seen an interviewer make?
