Beware Hiring Managers! Legal Risk Ahead A single wrong question during a job interview can land you in legal trouble.
A personal interview remains the most important part of hiring. Large organizations usually own a team of experts that work hard and put a lot of research to set the interview process. The well-structured interview processes help them evaluate various metrics and hire the desired candidate, but smaller companies usually lack this amount of time, resources, and research.
