Youre wearing your best suit. Shoes shined. Resume in hand. Youve prepared for any interview question that could come your way.
But rather than questions, there are awkward pauses. Stony silences. Theres a seeming lack of interest in the entire event -- on the interviewers part.
Just because someone is interviewing you, doesnt mean theyre a good interviewer. Dont let his ignorance sabotage your interview or your chances at landing the position.
A Day in the Life
As your bad interview lumbers on, dont wait until your interviewer asks you if you have any questions. Rather, at the first awkward pause, ask him to describe the position for which youre applying in rich detail. What would your key responsibilities be? What is a typical day like? What time does the workday begin and end? Would you need to be available after hours or on weekends? Is there any travel involved?
