Interview Tips and Techniques for EmployersRecruit the right staff with better Interview Techniques.
Many employers will miss out on the best applicant and cost themselves time, energy and money because they lack basic interview techniques. The obvious solution is to utilise a professional recruitment firm who not only have these techniques down pat but can provide confidentiality.
In the current market with competition for good applicants so strong, it is important the interview is a positive experience which sells the benefits of the company. Many job applicants have turned down job offers due to a bad interview experience.
The B Series Group of Recruitment Consultancies recognises that compared to the amount of interview tip information for job seekers, employers are constantly overlooked when it comes to being educated on how to recruit the right person. To combat this shortfall B Series have consolidated some of its key Interview techniques and tips to assist Employers with this important part of the recruitment process.
Conducting an Interview – Do’s.
Conducting an Interview – Don’ts.
A short list of candidates for a particular position should include two to four individuals and will be based on your initial interviewing and reference checking. An effective tool to assist in shortlisting is an initial interview summary sheet. The summary sheet lists the candidate’s skills, qualifications etc. against a list of key requirements as set out in the person specification. The summary sheet should be on one page allowing for easy comparison.
Second interviews for shortlisted candidates are usually a good idea before a decision to hire is made.
Make an Offer.
It is usually the case that the consultant will make a verbal offer to the candidate to ensure that there are no problems or misunderstandings on behalf of either party. If the candidate accepts the offer then a formal letter or offer will be drawn up and signed by both parties. Once this has been completed we will then advise the candidate on the best way to resign from their current employer and the foolishness of accepting a counteroffer. Once a start date has been confirmed we will then follow up after one and three months to ensure that both parties are happy.
