Interviewing a new hire can be a lot like a blind date. You show up with very little information about the person and rely on your gut to tell you whether to stay and finish dinner or escape when they go to the bathroom.
Like blind dates, most managers rely on small bits of information from potential hires: previous work experience, resume, and schooling then make a decision based on a gut feeling during the interview. They are confident they know their business and can determine if a candidate will be a good fit long term.
