I have never heard of speed interviewing...until today. I was forwarded this article today from Life.Inc/MSNBC, "Want a job? You have 60 seconds to convince me."
It starts off, "In at least one extreme example, workers are being given just one minute to sell their skills to a hiring manager. If they fall short, they are out the door. That’s the approach MediConnect Global has been taking with its interview process. Even though it may sound like a nightmare for some job seekers, it has worked out great for the medical records company and some lucky employees who passed the test."
I was certainly intrigued. And it makes sense. Personally, I would still do a thorough interview process.
Another way of looking at this...it's your answer to "Tell me about yourself." It's your job hunting elevator speech.
