Recruiting – Prep for Interviews
Last time I talked about Tackling Resumes and some tips for getting a ‘shortlist’. This time I want to talk about preparation for interviews.
Preparation for effective interviews is crucial to an effective result. Here’s my top three tips for Interview Preparation:
- Compile a list of questions to ask each applicant – this ensures that you can compare each applicant easily (Trust me, you wont remember after a few interviews in a row or if there is some time between them)
- Write out the questions on a sheet of paper with room for your answers and print several copies – give a copy to each interviewer
- Compare answers with the other interviewers using these sheets
Next time we’ll talk about what types of questions to ask.
