Kelly's Resume/Career Tip of the Week
MALES INTEVIEWING WITH FEMALE HIRING MANAGERS: I’m not trying to help anyone who can’t get this on their own. However, it’s worth bringing up because sometimes you may not understand your own subtle biases or may not be aware how you may come across. If a male candidate is going to have issues reporting to a female manager, the best thing you can do is withdraw early; if not, please blow your interview. My wife interviewed a candidate a few years back, per company policy they always wanted a second interviewer in the room, in this case it happened to be a male. Whenever the candidate would answer a question, he would look directly at the male who was not even in the same department or speaking-he was DOA. I had a candidate that was in the final interview stage, the company has an above average amount of females in management. The candidate commented that he had never seen so many females in a management. I didn’t get the impression it was an issue for the candidate, but the lady he would be working for didn’t even want to clarify, it was over. If it wasn’t intentional, he should have added, “that’s impressive”. He was shocked and disappointed that one sentence cost him the job. References were done, it was his to lose and that’s what happened. Little things matter and say a lot about you in interviews.
