Interviews are a terrible way to hire someone for a job. Because someone who is really good at interviews may be bad at their job. And the reverse is true too.
It’s an audition.
Which tells me, people are lousy at judging someone else’s character. What makes it worst is that first impression fuels so much of our narrative in what we choose to see in that person going forward.
Bad first impressions create a hole for someone to get out of.
