Interviewing a candidate in a couple of minutes.

Does this ever become fun to do?


@patrick I’ve had fun interviews, where we establish rapport early and go from there. But it might be a personality thing?

@dznz today’s was one of the more enjoyable ones thankfully.

(The annoying thing is I know at least some of the ones that aren’t enjoyable might still be good hires :/)

@patrick @dznz some people just aren't at their socially free-est when being interviewed

@dznz @PetraOleum exactly!

There’s a power dynamic there that ignored will lead to bad hiring choices (something I’m even more conscious of now that I’m hiring for additional direct reports)
