You? A Biased Interviewer? Of Course Not. Oh, Wait…

by Evil HR Lady on September 21, 2016

Most people aren’t experts at conducting job interviews, so it’s no wonder we’re not perfect at it. In fact, we often stink. emphasisHR helped me out on putting together some biases that occur when we’re interviewing. It’s not the traditional spiel about diversity, although that plays a role as well.

It’s actually some pretty eye opening stuff about mistakes you’re making when interviewing, just because you’re subconsciously biased.

Yes, yes, yes, to notes. While it might be okay to not take notes during the interview and quickly jot them down afterwards (sometimes note taking during the interview can make interviewees nervous) it amazes me when others just sort of “wing it” when following up with others about their interviews.

Thanks for this. Volumes have been written on the Internet about racial and gender biases lately, and all of these other types of biases that don’t have to do with the person’s physical makeup are being ignored – even though they are so pervasive and harder to root out. A manager falling victim to these is often going to Just cite their gut instinct and not evaluate their bias…….
