ABSTRACT
This article states the five most common misconceptions about the employee interviewing process. While first impressions can be important, the interviewer should avoid making snap judgments. Relying on handshake intuition would cheat employers out of qualified candidates. Rather than comparing candidates with one another, it is best for the interviewer to base the evaluation against his own criteria and standards.
