No experience here yet, but my understanding is they still look at the whole application when making final decisions and use interview as one of several considerations. Essentially, they don’t level the playing field across interviewees and only use that in making final decisions.

I think the interview also plays a bigger role eliminating folks with great scores who can’t form a sentence than it does pushing up borderline candidates

Well it is a zero sum game - so if more 750+ GMATs get whacked the better changes for other folks

From what I’ve seen, interviews won’t elevate a candidate - it’s mostly to eliminate candidates, but not in a way where they’re trying to “catch you”. So people who can’t articulate their story, can’t explain why school, lack of awareness (speaking too long), boring/weird people you wouldn’t want as classmates, etc.

Can anyone at a company like Amazon, Microsoft, Apple, etc tell me about the breakdown of a Recruiters job? For example, when I worked in agency recruitment, it was 100% sourcing. Working for a healthcare system now, it is more about the candidate experience, much less sourcing, and focusing on the candidates who do apply (thankfully we have a great reputation).

Being that most corporations have dedicated sourcers, I was interested in learning more!

Have a big interview tomorrow. The question I dread the most is about why you’re looking for a new job.

Do I just make something else up entirely?
