Valentine’s Homage: how interviewing is like dating

January 25, 2012

The business of recruiting and executive search is often likened to matchmaking, and fraught with melodramatic language about courtship and marriage analogies. In the same vein, a friend/candidate of ours and I were laughing over dinner last night, musing about how the interview process could be related to dating. Not to be crude, but we started to get into what in interviews would be tantamount to first base, sImageecond base, and so on…

It was funny at the time. Guess you had to be there. 🙂
