Interview Techniques


An interview only offers you a short space of time in which to learn about candidates, evaluate their skills and competencies and reflect on whether they are the right person for a particular position or role. Every minute spent interviewing therefore needs to tell you something important about the person in front of you, and all the information you gather needs to be specific and relevant so that decisions can be made about the possibility of recruitment.
