- Very First impressions:
If the candidate is doing a presentation or an exercise make sure that they have full details of technology, format, expected time. Prior to interview send them:
- Where, when, who to ask for
- Panel members names with title
- Interview style – behavioural based?
- Structure of the interview – what happens in what sequence
- Any background information.
Ensure the person at reception knows they are coming & greets them in a way that the candidate knows they are expected.
- Inspect the room:
Make sure clean & tidy before the candidate arrives.
- Check the tech:
- Be prepared:
Ready CV before interview & make notes.
Have panel members sorted as to what they will do in the interview. Who asks what questions?
Have answers for questions the candidate might ask. What will I be working on, who will I work to etc.?
- Start of interview:
To get the genuine answers & see the real person (some people can act very well for an hour) get them relaxed. Introduce the panel, describe roles. Ask questions non work related – what did you do in the weekend?
