I recently attended an interview in which my supervisor is a panel mate.
After the interview, I met my mentor and asked whether I performed well and her opinion about the interview happened.
She (my mentor) told, "you performed well and I think you will get hired".
After a day, I shared this incident with a colleague. He (my colleague) opined that asking such a question to the mentor is unethical because it may be an obligation for her.
Indeed, I cannot ask opinions about my interview with other panel members and took advantage of rapport with my mentor in asking such a question, but I am not feeling that it is unethical since I didn't ask her any favor and just asked an opinion about my performance in the interview.
Is asking such a question unethical or perfectly ethical?
