What if you got an interview for a job you knew you had no business really getting? You probably would just go into thinking hey whatever happens, happens. You go through with the interview and it turns out to be a great conversation you start to think “hey I might just get this job.”

A couple days later that’s exactly what happens, the interviewer calls and offers you a position. Your wondering how when you couldn’t have been as qualified as others. It’s simple you were a perfect chemistry match with your potential boss.

Now an academic study by an assistant professor of management and organizations at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management confirms this trend; Hiring managers don’t always pick the most qualified applicants.

They hire people they like and want to spend time with. They hire people who they think could be their friends.

So from now when you go in to an interview don’t be nervous, just be yourself and you might just getting a job you never expected.
