Good point Abby. I had one of these the other day, for a very senior position -- the fellow being interview had 15+ yrs of experience and yet he went into the Skype interview without having thoroughly checked out the company. He asked too many negative-tinged questions, he didn't have enough knowledge of the area that the company was in, and so on. He thought he did fantastic and was telling me that the next step would be to fly him out there for an interview. But when I spoke to the client, they had ZERO interest in him.
“Humility is not my forte, and whenever I dwell for any length of time on my shortcomings, they gradually begin to seem mild, harmless, rather engaging little things; not at all like the glaring defects in other people’s characters.” - Margaret Halsey
