Going Indognito mode..
I had to interview potential employees today. My first time on the other side of the clipboard and it was an eye opener.
So many of the young male applicants just seemed so unprepared, unable to provide examples of demonstrated behaviour or give us the information we need to tick the boxes. These are uni students with degrees in counseling, criminal studies and in one case, biochemistry. They all have current jobs and are in their 20’s yet they struggle and stutter through basic questions with zero confidence in their answers and even go off on tangents unrelated to the questions asked.
The women were much more prepared and relaxed and the older dudes of course had a lot more interview experience and were able to remain calm and had prepared their answers in advance. They need some kind of small interview prep course for uni students if their isn’t one already.
