For decades now, the hiring process has been the same: Candidates apply, employers interview them and the best one gets the job. But in recent years, it’s become apparent that interviews are starting to lose their effectiveness. Someone who interviews well isn’t necessarily going to be a great employee.
A lot of research points to problems with the interview. According to Leadership IQ, 50% of new hires fail within the first 18 months!
Google has gone as far as to suggest that interviews are often no better than a coin flip, saying there’s no correlation between how well someone scored on an interview and their eventual job performance.
