You’re waiting for your candidate to arrive, you’ve already looked through their CV and although you have a few individuals to interview today, this particular CV stands out, you think they have potential. You have your questions at the ready. They walk in, they appear to stumble over themselves, you notice their shirt tail is hanging out and they proceed to give you a nervous handshake. You as the interviewer may look at this candidate as clumsy, scruffy and lacking in confidence and in this early negative judgement, may write them off as unworthy of your role. But, what if the candidate isn’t clumsy and has a completely different view on what happened? They may blame the floor or the new shoes they bought for the occasion to make a lasting impression, the shirt tail came out as they tripped and their adrenaline kicked in causing the shaky handshake. Should you judge that candidate based on that one act?
