In this day and age, we want everything faster. I want my coffee faster, my French fries faster, and the person in front of me to drive faster. As Maverick would say, I feel the need….the need for speed!
Speed dating has been around for a while, but what about speed interviewing? Could you interview someone for 10-15 minutes and make an educated decision as to whether or not you want to bring him or her in for a second interview? What types of questions would you ask? Would you want to sit in a room with dozens of other employers vying for the same candidates?
As a candidate, how would you stand out from the others in such a short period?
As a competitive person, I’d be game for sitting at either side of the table. In my opinion, this tactic might work for sales openings, but fail miserably for accountants or IT professionals.
Would you try it?
