It’s the silly season again. No, not the political races—the interviewing season. For thousands of people this is a time of year when they are subjected to the stress and strain of interviews. College seniors are interviewing for permanent positions. College juniors are interviewing for increasingly important summer internships. High school students are interviewing for college placement. And then there are the rest of the millions of Americans out of work who are interviewing for whatever job they can find. Each of these groups finds themselves in a room with a recruiter asking mind-numbingly silly interview questions.
