At a Starbucks today on the road. Listening to a manager interview a barista candidate.
The candidate hasn't had to say a word in 20 minutes. No joke.
Love Starbucks. Good people. Word of advice to all the candidates out there:
If your interviewer won't stop talking, you are gold. Let them talk.
I know, it runs counter to what you think. You think you need to get your talking points in. The bottom line? If the interviewer talks 90% of the time and you spend 10% of the time concurring, you're going to be a finalist. That interviewer is going to go off his gut after the interview and say, "That felt great. I really like her."
Of course you felt like it really went great, Bob. You got to listen to yourself for 45 minutes. Nice. You are so money. Ballers ball, after all.
So if you want the job, let them talk. If you want to determine whether you're a fit for the job? That's a whole other post.
I wish I could take video of this - but I can't do that to my guy...
Good luck out there candidates. It's a jungle for sure.
