All-day interviews: The interviewer’s perspective?
~ 09 April 2007 ~
The tips you outlined were bang on the money, but I too face interviewing folks and I’d not only like to hit all the marks for the company and my team but also for the perspective employee. As I’m sure you know, as the interviewer, I’m cheering for the person sitting in front of me. I’d LOVE for them to be right person so we can all pack it up and head out with the team for an early drink. I’d really like to hear your thoughts on how we as the person behind the desk can help the person on the other side of the desk be the best that we need them to be.
I gave a hearty effort on the last article, so I’ll pass the mic to all of you. Pipe up, forthright reader: How do you prepare applicants to perform their best? What are your interviewer tips and techniques in general?
