Job interviewers must learn to become experts at improvisational conversation, says Sue Parker.

    ABSOLUTELY Sue!! Thanks for opening a conversation about this. Organisations are so frightened of "getting it wrong" they have codified the selection process until it is almost a waste of time. There is a wrong-headed view that codification means that selection will be objective. Selection will always have a subjective element to it. Organisations are much better served recognising this and adopting some of your suggestions.

      Thanks Julie for your kind words. You are so right, the fear of getting it wrong and codification just creates the exact opposite of what is sort. Ah the irony.
