I know that an interview has gone well when my candidate can tell me why she thinks it went well and can tell me what she learned about the person who interviewed her.
But that's not always so.In interviews, candidates focus so much on telling their own story that they pay no attention to the interviewer.
Having heard their own tale so well told they come out beaming with confidence that things went well.
But they can't tell me in any detail what was said to them and they don't pick up any nonverbal cues because they are too wrapped up in themselves.It helps if I tell them in advance that when they call me after the interview I want them to be able to tell me something they learned about the person and the company.
