You Need to Know This Before You Sign Up For Interviews!
Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard came upon a stunning revelation that may help you if you are planning to interview with campus recruiters. In particular, this is what the researchers discovered: People are poor at considering background information when making individual decisions. For example, a judge fearful of appearing too soft on crime might be more likely to send someone to prison if he had sentenced five earlier defendants only to probation on that day.
It’s the same logic for recruiters. They typically can only send a certain number of candidates on in the process and score candidates accordingly. Candidates who are impressive earlier in the process (the interview day) have a greater chance of being selected.
The bottom line: Sign up for interview slots early in the day and try to go directly after a candidate you believe will be unimpressive. You will increase your chances of success.
