Interviewing: Fast Start and Good Fit are Key

From the Society for Human Resource Management survey of nearly 500 HR managers:

  • 30% of hiring managers will decide whether to hire you within 15 minutes
  • 40% of hiring managers say a cellphone ringing in the middle of an interview is a “deal breaker”
  • 70% prefer job candidates to have unpaid internship experience directly related to their companies’ work versus paid employment in an unrelated field
  • 39% say “chemistry” with a job applicant accounts for half of their hiring decision
