  3. 3. 1. WHAT IS INTERVIEW INTUITION?<br /><ul><li>Whenever we interact with people, we are picking up on imperceptible messages that give us a feeling that isn’t necessarily based on fact
  4. 4. We often look back at decisions that we’ve made and say, “I had a bad feeling about that person but</li></ul>I ignored it. If only I had listened to my instincts.” Or “I trusted my gut and the person worked out well.”<br />
  5. 5. .<br />2<br />CAN I USE<br />INTUITION BEFORE<br />THE INTERVIEW?<br />
  6. 6. 2. CAN I USE INTUITION BEFORE THE INTERVIEW?<br /><ul><li> Yes you can. Take the resume of the candidate and read it over. What is your gut telling you? Are you getting any intuitive sense from it?
  7. 7. Record those thoughts and feelings. Check them against what you pick up on during the interview. Intuition may be useful in this way even before the person is in the room</li></li></ul><li>.<br />3<br />USING INTUITION<br />DURING THE<br />INTERVIEW<br />
  8. 8. 3. USING INTUITION DURING THE INTERVIEW<br /><ul><li> Ask good questions, pay attention to body language, be an attentive listener, and try to detect what isn’t said but should be
  9. 9. Don’t try to figure out what’s “right” or “not quite right” about a candidate immediately. Give yourself some time to get a feel for what it is about them that is tripping your alarm bells (or lighting up your positive senses)
  10. 10. Know your trigger points. Is this coming from your or from them? Are you projecting your own baggage onto the candidate or is it them that’s giving off either positive or negative vibrations?
  11. 11. Don’t dismiss your gut feelings just because they aren’t “scientific”</li></li></ul><li>.<br />4<br />USING INTUITION<br />AFTER THE <br />INTERVIEW<br />
  12. 12. 4. USING INTUITION AFTER THE INTERVIEW<br /><ul><li> Go somewhere quiet to review your notes and general impressions
  13. 13. Compare what you wrote about this candidate before the interview, based on your intuition
  14. 14. Are you impressions consistent, or did the actual interview change your views?
  15. 15. Is the candidate a better fit, or a worse one, now that you’ve had a chance to process your “sixth sense”
  16. 16. Check with others who interviewed the candidate (if possible) to see if anyone shares your impressions</li></li></ul><li>more on this topic:<br />Do You Have Interview Intuition<br />and Montreal coach Julie Cusmariu (usingyourintuition.com) <br />more Employer/Recruiter/HR advice:<br />http://hiring.monster.ca/hr/hr-best-practices.aspx<br />join us on:<br />
