+ Interviewing to Fit Your Personality
1 lecture 05:49

We firmly believe that you need to be yourself when interviewing candidates. Yes, HR will have guidelines on what they expect and what you can and cannot ask. By all means, use that information, but find a way to deliver it in a way that is natural to you. The more comfortable and confident you are when speaking with a candidate, the better the interview will go. Plus, you’ll inspire great candidates to really shine and the weak ones to become more obvious. We provide ways to mix and match different interview style questions to create a comfortable yet productive conversation.

Now that you have a better understanding of the different interview styles to consider, now you need to put together an interview plan. Your first step is to create an Interview Questionnaire Form and we have included a sample form for your reference. This form is vital to hiring the best candidate!

Lastly, we review the steps necessary to select your interview questions, provide tips for reviewing resumes, help you prepare your introduction speech, and stress the importance of practicing.
