Once upon a time in Job Hunting Land, before mega job websites, computers, Internet, email, and texting, there was something known as the “interview”. This ancient form of communication provided potential employers and prospective employees to assess whether a person would be a good fit with an organization. Somewhere along the line, however, some students have acquired the notion that face-to-face interviews are no longer required. I even had an alumna ask me if it was “normal” to have an in person interview after a telephone interview. I assured her that not only was it normal, but also something she should want to do to see if she wanted to work with the people in the organization.
