Getting past biases in a job interview

"How to Reduce Interviewer Bias" introduces interviewers to ways they can reduce personal bias to promote diversity, inclusion, and objectivity in their interviewing and hiring processes.

We are naturally drawn to people who remind us of ourselves. We unconsciously favor people who look, act, speak and think like us, just like we automatically make snap judgments about others based on how we categorize them. These hidden biases pose a real challenge in an interview and can lead to unfair or discriminatory hiring practices. Learn how to hire fairly.
