Hey Interviewers, Here’s a Gut-Check for You: “Interview Illusion”

“…We all think we’re good at it. We are Barbara Walters or Mike Wallace, taking the measure of the person. Psychologist Richard Nisbett calls this the “interview illusion” — our certainty that we’re learning more in an interview than we really are.”

I love this. So true. I was a part of a great organization that actually did learn how to interview, and I learned a lot from them. Unfortunately, most don’t.
