Crack The Interview :
Of all of the various faking behaviors listed, ingratiation tactics were found to be the most
prevalent in the employment interview, while flat out making up answers or claiming others’ experiences as one’s own is the least common. However, fabricating true skills
appears to be at least somewhat prevalent in employment interviews. One study found
that over 80% of participants lied about job-related skills in the interview, presumably
to compensate for a lack of job-required skills / traits and further their chances for employment.
Most importantly, faking behaviors have been shown to affect outcomes of employment interviews. For example, the probability of getting another interview or job offer increases when interviewees make up answers.
Different interview characteristics also seem to impact the likelihood of faking. Faking
behavior is less prevalent, for instance, in past behavioral interviews than in situational
interviews, although follow-up questions increased faking behaviors in both types of
interviews. Therefore, if practitioners are interested in decreasing faking behaviors
among job candidates in employment interview settings, they should utilize itructured, past behavioral interviews and avoid the use of probes or follow-up questions.
You must remember that the best-qualified person does not necessarily get the job. It is one who presents himself / herself confidently, speaks well and sells himself / herself at the interview. And this can be despite the fact that others may have better qualifications and more experience. The person who makes the interviewer believes that he has that extra magic and that the company cannot afford not to have him / her, is the one who will get the job. The extra magic is really preparation. Successful persons will tell you that to succeed there is no substitute for hard work. Similarly for a good interview there is no substitute for preparation.
