Handwriting Analysis

I used to have some fun when interviewing candidates for various posts in IT at a previous company that I worked for. The standard process would be for them to complete and sign some forms before the interview commenced, so I would normally ask to see the forms before even meeting the candidate. 

By looking at their signature, I would tell the other members of the interview panel what I thought the individual would be like, and often I would even guess the duration of the interview. I was right every single time. It was hilarious. Eventually, I had managers walking up to my desk before they went into an interview that I wasn’t involved in to find out if I thought it would be worth their while to interview the candidate before they even met him. 

Poor candidates. Finding a job is tough these days. 🙂
