one of many reasons why I love the Evil HR Lady

There's a brilliant post from the Evil HR Lady up over at BNET, called "It's a Job Interview, Not a Beauty Pageant." Excerpt:
We see the hiring manager as a contest judge who is to be feared and impressed. Instead of thinking, “what would I really do in this situation” we think, “what does this judge want to hear?”
The difference is at the end of a beauty pageant, the winner gets a crown, some money and the the obligation to ride on the back of a convertible in the town 4th of July parade, while the “winner” of the job interview “pageant” gets to spend 40-50 hours a week with the “judge.”
Go read it.
