That old saying, “what goes around, comes around” is so very true. It’s important that both candidate and hiring manager recognize that the world is small and circular. Meaning, that the person you are meeting regardless of what side of the table they are sitting on may be someone you need to work with, sell to, collaborate with in the future.
Burning a bridge during the interview process can have the potential to come back with a negative impact down the road. Let’s face it, not all interviews go as planned, but respectful interactions, leave the door open for the possibility of future opportunities to interact and who knows, there may be some great business deals yet to come!
