balance of power in interviewing

Do market dynamics influence shifts in the balance of power from interviewer to interviewee?

In working with clients on Talent Acquisition, one of my key focus areas is to enhance interviewing and selection techniques for all levels, from junior to senior positions. This would include facilitating assessment centre interviews for top management succession planning. Over the years, there has been a distinct shift in the interviewing process, its constituents, as well as approach The air of formality has certainly dissipated making way for a more conversational style. Despite these changes, is there an invisible ‘power’ on either side of the divide – interviewer or interviewee? If yes, what factors could be causing this? It is broadly seen from the employer or employee market standpoint.

Perhaps this “pre-Covid” (how we define our world now!?) interview shared here, may throw some light on this ‘balance of power’. This is certainly a case study on how to tip the balance, rather than walking away defeated. Your thoughts?
