Art of taking an interview: Authentifaking


There are million different verdicts about what does and does not work in an interview. But this blog is not about consolidating all of those ideologies, infact this is to share an interesting response I came across in the Financial Times, where a candidate asked “Should you be yourself in an interview?

And the editor replied by quoting something that she called Authentifaking which means that ‘most people who’ve got to the age of 29 have mastered quite a few selves. There is a self with your friends, the self when talking to your boss and the self when lying on the sofa playing GTA5.’
