Editor’s note: Today’s post was written by Heather R. Huhman (@HeatherHuhman), President of Come Recommended.


We know that job interviewing is tough. Did you know the average employer may receive upwards of 100 applications per job opening? In addition, even if an applicant does land an interview, it can be difficult to navigate through the process since every interviewer is different. So, how can job seekers ensure they are reading each situation correctly?

This inforgraphic, compiled by Interview Success Formula, a program that helps job seekers to deliver powerful interview answers, illustrates how job seekers can read the most common types of interviewers and how to succeed in the process. Some takeaways to note include:

  • The average duration of an interview is 50 minutes
  • 60% of managers conduct video interviews
  • 34% of U.S. workers say they have a younger boss
  • 17% didn’t believe the employer was knowledgeable
