The Manager's Guide to Conducting Interviews

By: Stephen Walker

Overview of this book

Table of Contents (9 chapters)


In this chapter, you have learned how to work with your intuition to uncover your doubts about candidates' skills, your scoring, and the weighting factors.

Judging skills on the basis of answers to questions is a comparative process. The inexperienced manager needs to plan the scoring of the candidates to ensure that too high or too low scores given to the initial candidates does not restrict the range of scores for the subsequent candidates.

You can see how the others on the interview panel may face the same doubts from their intuitions. You can practice listening to your intuition before the interviews in everyday social interactions.

Finally, you learned how to shortlist the candidates ready for HR to make job offers.

The pre-employment checks on job references and qualifications are usually part of HR's normal process. Please make sure that is the case!

You have learned the need to plan the "special adjustments" you promised in the interview. You don't want to forget to do that.
