Your candidates might not jump for joy, nor will their interview be televised nationally, but they should have a great interviewing experience. Tips for conducting great interviews: -Be prepared (if you fail to plan, you plan to fail). Remember, YOU are in control. -Give a warm greeting and show sincere interest -Listen, summarize, demonstrate that you understand -Provide information and answer questions -End the interview with set expectations. What’s next? What’s the time frame? Who should they call with questions? Also, if you know you are not interested in a candidate, it is your choice if you would like to tell them in person. The situation can be awkward, so if you’re not comfortable doing that, here is a way to handle it: “We are talking to quite a few applicants this week. Once we get through the first round of interviewing, we will contact you and let you know if you are still being considered.” We can then send a regrets letter to inform him/her that we have chosen another candidate. AVOID: -Leading candidates on. -Making the applicant feel unwelcomed by cutting the interview drastically short. All candidates should leave with a positive experience, even if they were not right for the job.
