Elements of Good Interviewing

Adhere to these tips for best interview results

Meeting the interview goals requires the following on the interviewer’s part:

  • Interpersonal skills, which put a job candidate at east and elicit the most accurate responses
  • Preparation helps an interviewer cover all job-related questions and avoid saying things that might violate antidiscrimination laws, create an implied employment contract, or misrepresent the job.
  • Objectivity requires the interviewer to be impartial and unbiased. Interviewers must evaluate a candidate based on the factors that predict future job performance.
  • Good recordkeeping supplies the information needed to compare different candidates and documents the screening process in case a rejected candidate challenges the hiring decision.
