Last week, we asked: During the hiring process, an in-person interview is usually a required step. However, some researchers say snap judgments and gut feelings can cause problems for the interviewer. Is a face-to-face interview the best way to determine whether a candidate is a good fit for a job opening? Ninety-two percent responded yes, and 8% answered maybe.

Comments:
“Resumes can be done by others, and hide problem areas. In-person interviews can also show the applicant's demeanor, discipline, and knowledge—or lack thereof.”

“If you have any doubts, watch the episode of “House of Cards” where they interview candidates for the House Whip position.”
