I had occasion to don the mantle of interviewer for the first time last week. It's not the fact that I'm in any superior position or that I am a talent-spotter, but more because we're filling positions for a specific set of needs that my current project has, and the people on the ground would probably know best. I hoped my debut wouldn't be as nervous as that of the interviewee, and it wasn't too impossible: the questions I wanted to know came of their own accord, helped by an initial understanding of what I was seeking. I don't think I did too badly. Yes, it would be improper of me to comment similarly on the performance of the candidate!
