Interviewing is a tedious process, and here is some advice to simplify the process, yet giving you the highest output.
Preparation is key
You may be focusing on the wrong aspects that are insignificant contributions to your interview process. Before you prepare for the interview, ensure that you have ticked these points.
- Analysing your interviewer’s resume
Conduct investigations beforehand. Hence, raising proper questions regarding their resume. Cross check through their social media platforms to verify the credibility of information submitted.
- Read your candidates’ cover letter
- Match your candidate to potential job scopes
You have to ensure that your candidates have acquired skills and knowledge which may apply to their possible job scopes if hired.
If you hire a candidate without them procuring a fundamental ability, it does not provide your company with any leverage.
- Preparing a list of questions
Tailoring questions based on your candidates’ examination is crucial. Each candidate has their highest highs and their lowest lows. Having a list of questions prepared beforehand would prevent you from re-asking the same questions, and work towards targeting other areas.
Unstructured interviews are the worst forms of interviews. They lack depth, meaning, and significance.
You should make sure to take notes of the essential pieces of information. Use abbreviations if possible. Understanding that you may be distracted take it slow and strategize. With practice, fluency will flow.
