Got Some Job Interviews Tomorrow

Recommended Posts

It's not something I've done before as the main question asker (usual chap is away, I normally sit in on onterviews & scribe/ ask ad-hoc questions)

I want to make sure that the candidate is properly relaxed as personality is more important than experience for the role i'm employing for.

Has anyone carried out any interviews? Any tips?

If you want them relaxed, go and greet them personally in the waiting room, shake their hand and smile, have a couple of minutes of jokey casual chat before you go into the interview room or give them a quick tour and have a chat while doing that.

If the interviews are one on one do them on a couple of comfy chairs instead of behind the desk and make sure there is drinks.

Put a sock on your hand and ask all your questions in a ventriloquist style.

Assess their reaction :D

I always hated doing interviews and am glad that someone else does them for me now.

This has the added benefit of not ever having to blame myself for hiring twerps.

Sound advice that works.
