How can humor be a resource in an interview—and when can it backfire? Our own Cheryl Hyatt was recently featured in Fast Company discussing the role of humor in an interview. Hyatt points out the relational dimension of laughter. She explains,  “You don’t need to be a standup comedian or tell bad dad jokes, but humor can put both the interviewee and the interviewer at ease. If you’re qualified for the position—which you must be if you’re being interviewed—the answers to questions should come easily. The goal is to create more of a relationship with the interviewer. Humor can do that, helping people feel relaxed.”
