What’s the most important aspect of any recruitment drive? Some might say it’s the sourcing of high-quality candidates while others might suggest that it’s the screening process. The vast majority of recruiters, however, will agree that it’s the interview, or in other words, the conversation you have with a candidate that is the most essential cog in the process.
We’ve heard it said many times before – recruitment is a calling. And at times it takes a superhuman effort to make that one last push to get through those resumes or to track down that candidate who went AWOL. But at the end of the day, recruiters (even those with awesome superpowers) are only human and as humans we go through the same emotions as everyone else.

Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to weed out the Pinocchios from your recruitment efforts and improve your interview game.
The gender pay gap exists, and although governments across the globe are taking measures to address the current state of inequality, it will be quite some time before they catch up with Iceland, who many consider to be the world leader on gender equality.
