Hiring and Chocolates

Everytime I interview a person for a position, I remember two things. First, a recruiter once explained that most interviewers will make up their minds about the applicant in the first 5 minutes of an interview and spend the next 25 minutes rationalizing it. Second is the quote from the movie Forrest Gump, “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going to get”. 

Travel writers are special because they can visit a country and within weeks understand the culture well enough to write an insightful book about it. Likewise there are individuals with special abilities to interview someone for 30 minutes and divine what kind of employee they would be. But those people are extremely rare. Most of us will think we are picking a chocolate caramel, only to realize, belatedly, that it is filled with coconut.
