Like most things in business, there is no magic number of interviews, it depends on the organization. However, four seems to be an important threshold for both employers and candidates to avoid interview fatigue. If you're well prepared for interviews, you can expect to receive job offers after interviewing 2 to 4 employers. The total number of interviews you would need to conduct with those employers is usually 6 to 12 (based on an average of 3 interviews per employer).
Some candidates in a hiring process will only reach the telephone interview stage and will not move on to a second interview (depending on their performance in the interview). Now you know how many candidates get interviews and how to convert more interviews into job offers so that they hire you faster. The typical employer will interview 6 to 10 candidates for a position, and candidates will go through at least 2 or 3 rounds of interviews before receiving an offer. I'll share some interview tips in the next section, because this is one of the most important factors in the number of interviews needed to get a job.
Since most employers interview fewer than 10 candidates for a position, only 2 to 3% of applicants will receive an interview on average. So, while an employer will never interview 50 or 100 people for a job offer, you can greatly increase your chances of being between 2 and 3% of people who get an interview by building networks. Even Google, which used to be known for having its candidates go through 15 to 25 rounds of interviews, has concluded that four is the ideal number of interviews before they offer diminishing returns.
