Team interviews are tough, but they can be
In IT, where so much work gets done in a team
environment, they re an effective way for
employers to make sure a candidate will fit into
their overall dynamic and culture.
Team interviews allow a number of people to weigh
in, instead of relying on HR and the hiring manager
alone. And, they give a good idea of how a person
performs under pressure, because it's not easy to face
the challenge of questioning by a number of people at
Of course, it's a different thing if you're the one
who's under the microscope. "Pressured" and
"intimidating" are two words that come to mind.
Rather than focus your attention on one person, you
have to focus on several. Questions can come fast and
furious, allowing little time for you to gather your
thoughts. Your approach may resonate with some
people, but not others.
The team interview is a test of your ability to stay
focused, calm, and on-message.
Although your success with any interview depends
in large part on your preparation, planning ahead is
especially important when you're facing a group.
Here's a survival guide.
KNOW WHO YOU'LL MEET
Whether the interview is being set up by HR or a
hiring manager, find out who'll be participating and
try to get a sense of the role they play at the company.
Then research each individual by looking them up on
the corporate website, on LinkedIn, or by conducting
a Google search.
As you gather information, consider the dynamics
of everyone's job and what their concerns might be.
For instance, a project manager may want to know
about how you organize your work while a senior
developer is more interested in whether you've kept
up with technology.
As you do your research, be on the lookout for
organizations each interviewer might belong to. You
may discover you have common interests, or even
shared contacts who can give you some additional
background on the person.

GET IN "THE ZONE"
You can prepare for the unique pressures of a team
interview by rehearsing. Ask several of your friends
or family members to sit down with you at the same
time and to alternate asking questions so you can get
used to shifting your focus from one person to
another. Be sure they mix up topics so you have to
switch mental gears.
Practice engaging with several participants at
once. While you can't predict exactly what the
dynamics will be during the actual interview, you can
at least get yourself ready to maintain several threads
of conversation and meet the demands of multiple

give each interviewer equal attention, and resist the temptation to
focus on any one person.
Begin your answers by addressing the person who asked the
question, but then make eye contact with others as you continue.
When possible, make points of interest to several people by
including examples tailored to their different concerns. You may
not be able to "touch" each person during each answer, but over the
course of the interview you should make everyone feel like they've
been an equal part of the mix.
KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR INFLUENCERS
Try to understand who are the influencers in the room. A hiring
manager is bound to rely on some people more than others, and, if
you can identify those people, you can take care to address their
As in any interview, pay close attention to the questions people
ask and the points they make. Doing so will give you a sense of their
interests. Here's where you have to be careful, though. Don't focus
on influencers at the expense of other participants. One thing you
never want to do is make someone feel slighted.
Whether it's a group or individual discussion, no interview is
supposed to be an interrogation. It should always be a conversation,
with each side learning about the other's strengths, weaknesses and
Besides helping you get a sense of the interviewers' knowledge,
asking questions shows them that you're engaged and curious.
Plus, a group interview provides you with an opportunity to get a
sense of the company's culture and dynamics. So be sure to ask
questions about the workplace as well as technical subjects and the
company's business. You can often get a feel for how the group
works together by observing their reactions to each other and how
Though it's hard not to feel intimidated when you're facing
several people, remember that you've already impressed managers
with your credentials and experience. Do your research up front
and be ready for the challenges of group dynamics, and a team
interview becomes a straightforward discussion among peers that
you can navigate with confidence.
