Interviews Have Changed This Year, What Job Seekers Should Know

Here’s what job seekers need to know about the interview process in 2023.


Today, I’d like to discuss the evolving interview process for those of you who are seeking new opportunities. In comparison to the past couple of years, there has been a noticeable change in the standard length of the interview process as of this year.


In 2023, we’re observing that the average interview process tends to encompass about four to five steps. However, this number can be slightly more or less depending on the circumstances. This is in contrast to the previous years where the average interview process typically consisted of around three steps.


It’s evident that the interview process is now taking more time due to additional steps. This doesn’t imply that every company will subject candidates to an extensive eight, nine, or more interview steps—that would be an outlier. Rather, the trend has shifted towards a longer and more intricate process.


This change not only pertains to the number of steps involved but also the frequency of conversations that occur throughout the process. If you’re currently on the job hunt, it’s wise to be mentally prepared for this shift in the interview landscape. Don’t hesitate to call or email us with any questions about this topic. We look forward to hearing from you.
