I had an interview the other day with a young() individual. He was obviously good at his job, seeing as how he was interviewing potential candidates and was running a small department.
However, he was extremely awkward, to the point where his voice became shaky and his hands were slightly trembling. I almost felt like I was the person taking charge of the situation and had to make a major effort to try and make him feel comfortable.
It got to the point where I felt uncomfortable being in the room and could barely ask about the position b/c he was so nervously scanning my resume saying ''sooo ummm tell me about this' just trying to avoid even the remotest possibility of having a moment of silence.
Obviously this is a problem for me, because if he is that uncomfortable in that room with me, he is not going to have a good memory of that encounter and is thus not going to give good feedback when he later meets up with the other interviewers.
Anyone had a similar experience / tips for dealing with this in the future.
