…should you be the first, second, third or last interview


we are often asked: “if there are multiple candidates, should i be the first, second or last interview?”..tough question

here is our experience…if there are only three or four candidates and they are all being interviewed on the same day, it really doesn’t matter much if you are first, last or in the middle…

now if there are more than that, like six or seven on the same day..or the inteveiws are spread out over a few days, it is best to be dead last…if you can’t be last…be first…

if you are first, you “set the bar”…and you had better be good!…over the next day or two after the interview, email or call and remind the hiring authority who you are and how good you are by reinforcing what he or she said they wanted….

if the interviewing process is carried out over a long period of time…like days or weeks…try to be last…it takes advantage of the “law of recency”…people remeber best what they saw last…

so often, hiring authorities leave the decision to hire someone to the very last moment…lets face it, hiring is an emtionally difficult thing to do and since it is uncomfortable, it gets left to the last moment…soooo, if you are the last candidate interviewed, you have a better chance…

now it only ammounts to a 15% or 20% better chance of being hired, so don’t let it go to your head…however, you need all the advantages you can get

…don’t answer a question you don’t understand


…my candidate didn’t understand one of the questions he got asked …and he knew he didn’t understand it when it was asked…

instead of simply saying, “i really don’t understand, could you state it again,”…he started to answer it…he actually started to answer everything he thought the question might be…he went on and on…

the only way he could have said less was to talk longer…and he did..

end of interview…

lesson: if you don’t understand the question, get clarification then answer…

The Bogus "Informational Interview"

Here's one example of the phony advice being offered to new graduates and other first time job seekers: "pursue informational interviews as a way to expose yourself to an organization". Supposedly, employers are willing to accommodate a fact-finding interview, an "informational interview", even if they do not have an open position.
