  • A good interviewer has 2 core goals:
    • Get signal on the candidate's abilities
    • Provide a great candidate experience
  • Unfortunately, these 2 things usually conflict. In order to get good signal, the candidate often times has to struggle to solve a tough problem. Struggle is generally not associated with good experience.
  • A truly good interviewer makes it so that the candidate enjoyed their round even if they didn't pass. This means that you need to get signal in a positive way by building the candidate up and bringing out their true skills without solving too much of the problem for them.
