An unorganized interviewer and an ad hoc interview process leaves candidates with a poor impression of the organization and reduces consistency across interviews. Uniformity is critical for ensuring interviews yield valid candidate information that can be used to compare candidates. This Pre-interview Guide for Interviewers will help get interviewers organized before and during the interview by providing:
- A checklist of key activities to complete before the interview.
- An overview of the steps involved in conducting the interview.
- A review of red and yellow flags that can surface in candidate responses.
The information in the template is based on McLean & Company’s interview guidelines; modify it to suit the particulars of your interview process.
