The interview process can often be a daunting one, but it is very important in ensuring the strength of your organization. Here are a few of our tips for getting the most out of the process and getting the best results.
1. Let your application questions guide your interview questions
When creating your job listing, 3-5 key questions can make a world of difference. It can help you easily weed out candidates and allow you to become familiar with them before the interview. Additionally, good application questions can make writing interview questions a breeze as you already have points to expand upon.
2. Be realistic and open about important aspects like necessary skills and pay scale
In the process of posting jobs, many companies can tend to stay on the conservative side when posting information about the job so as to not deter individuals from applying. However, the more important details and specifics you include in your job listing and interview questions, the better fit you will get when hiring a new employee.
3. Have a conversation
Interviews can be awkward for everyone involved and oftentimes involve a lot of pressure. The best way to really get to know your candidate is to structure the interview to be as much of a conversation as possible. This helps you get your questions answered while also understanding the applicant’s personality better.
