In an earlier interview today, I sat down for a panel (two committee members and myself) interview, one of whom was on the committee for a previous position that I interviewed for but was not selected.
My current understanding of how hiring committees work, whether it is a single-decision maker and the rest are advisers or a member majority vote. The individual in question may, or may not have, played a role in the final decision.
Given this, should I inform the other member of the current panel that his colleague should recuse herself?
My current leaning is to let sleeping dogs lie, because the act of informing may backfire if not handled correctly or that I may have the incorrect presumption in their role.
Interview 1: Person A, B, C.
Interview 2: Person C and D.
The person in question is C and the member that I would be informing would be D.
