You thought your interview was tough?

Posted on Dec 12, 2012 in Career/Life and News

There’s no question; interviews create anxiety even among the most confident candidates. Whether it’s a one-on-one meeting with the boss, or an interview with a selection committee, being on the hot seat can be a challenge behind closed doors. Now imagine interviewing in front of the whole world. Hard to imagine? Well, if you’re interviewing with a public entity, it could happen, as it did recently at Tennessee Tech University according to the Wall Street Journal’s CIO Journal.

The public university is required to comply with the state’s open records and open meetings laws, so when evaluating CIO candidates, they elected to live-tweet the interviews from their Tennessee Tech News Twitter account (@tennesseetech). Followers have taken notice and urged candidates to address issues such as access for students with disabilities and improved mobile websites. To date, Tennessee Tech has more than 2,700 followers. And you thought your interview was tough!
