Survival of the Fittest: Mastering the Group Interview

Posted by Lori on January 18, 2010

Interviewing for a job is unnerving enough, but the thought of sitting among a group of other job seekers jockeying for the same position at the same time is a situation that I have not yet encountered. In an article from wetfeet.com, Liz Seasholtz describes why companies use group interviews and gives some suggestions on how to survive one. Here’s a list of 8 survival techniques that you should know just in case you find yourself thrust in a similar situation:

  1. Look lively
  2. Say hello
  3. Speak up
  4. Involve others
  5. Be a leader
  6. Keep your cool
  7. Form alliances
  8. Send thank you notes

Click on the link above to read the full text of the article because you never know when this could happen to you. Pay particular attention to the last item, as it is the most important one on the list – remember to send thank you notes to the interviewers!
