INDIANAPOLIS (March 24, 2016) – There are many articles, courses and lectures on being an interviewee, but the latest issue of the Diary will show you how to be the best interviewer possible.
Whether you have conducted hundreds of interviews in your lifetime or you are about to begin your first, your aim is to get the right person for the job. Two articles in the Dairy are specific to honing interviewing skills and becoming acquainted to the warning signs, “Smart Interviewing: Getting the Right Person” and “Crucial Signs You Should Take a Pass on a Job Interviewee”.
Do you know what characteristics will fit well with the team? Do you know how to probe for vital qualifications? Before the interview even begins, preparation of questions and the format need to be decided. It is up to the discretion of the supervisor, but if necessary, more than one interviewer might be considered useful. Interview training might also be useful if you lack the ability to make an interviewee comfortable and keeping questions relevant. Arbitrary questions are occasionally useful, but often-times wind up far from useful in finding the right candidate.
Even before making decisions between interviewees, you must focus on identifying any red flags. By avoiding potential problems during the hiring stage, you are free to focus on developing the potential of individuals with qualities you admire.
More useful information for the interviewer is available in the full articles found in latest issue of the Diary (volume 105 no. 1).
