First Impressions: Dealing With Interviewer Bias
Studies have shown a majority of interviewers do not have a scientific way of determining who would do best on a job. Instead, most simply use their own biases to determine whether they think the person is smart and would "Fit in" with the rest of the people at the company. Deciding on this basis is really no better than flipping a coin, and it tends to favor people who are good interviewers rather than good employees.
