And if you’re not a Katniss Everdeen fan, there’s still plenty to read below. There’s a case for walking out of bad interviews, a takedown of “inbox zero”, a sneak peek at what interviews will look like over the next decade, a deep dive into why the NFL’s “Rooney rule” isn’t actually helping diversity efforts, and a look at a new trend in South Korea — three-hour workshops promising to help candidates beat AI interview bots.
