Is Interviewer Training Necessary?

Why should we assume our hiring managers are well skilled at Interviewing? The answer is we shouldn’t. The false assumption is that because we’ve all been interviewed during a job search we know how to switch roles. Most hiring managers need some form or training geared towards covering how to ask questions, what to ask, what you cannot ask, and then interpreting the answers. Be it a formal class, a webinar, a podcast or even some printed material on the internet we should insist our hiring managers find more out about this critical skill.
