Overview




Interviewing is a universal experience, but it is no one’s job.

Interviews are the gateway between people and jobs — they are a critical connection point. And yet, while the interview is a universal experience, it has never been recognized as its own discipline. In fact, the vast majority of people conducting interviews receive no formal training in how to do so.
