I Hate Interviews

I hate job interviews.  I hate the fact that it seems so random, whether or not you will get the job.  And that you get interviewed for things involving skills that have nothing to do with interview skills.  That people who are good at interviews get jobs easily and often aren't good workers, just good at interviewing.  I hate the fact that interviews are so unnatural.  I could keep going.

Why can't you people stand an interview? It should be a friendly conversation between two people. Please remember, it is people you are going to spend time with (most likely more time with them than with your own family or friends) with and they just want to make sure they are selecting a person they can get on with, who will click with the group, with the rest of the employees. I have been in countless job interviews and have had many different jobs in completely different sectors and it all comes to one thing at the end of the recruitment process: how much they like you.

I completely agree with you.l am very perfectionist with high educational background and am very hard working individual but because I am not good at interviews I haven't been able to move on to higher level job and better paid job. this is really bothering me. I can't stand an iterview.

I do agree with you. I think that employers should get the potential employee to do one hours worth of whatever job they are doing just to show how good they are before they get the job.



By the way, I was thinking that some of my Data Entry job interviews does involve taking the typing test. So something like that in all jobs is what the employer should do. Or have a test lab to see how good the potential employee is about handling tasks before they get hired. Besides, interviews themselves are all talk and not action. You can't tell if the person is a good employee just by talking to them. Besides, shy people and people with low self esteem are good workers too.
