It seems whenever I set up a panel interview for a job seeker, he /she groans, "Not a panel interview! I'd rather meet each interviewer one-on-one." Most job seekers seem to have a fear of being interviewed by several people at once. In reality, panel interviews have many advantages that should convince those looking for a job that they may be better off with this style of interview.
