Having an interview guide when interviewing has a dual benefit. 1) It makes it clear to the prospective candidates you're serious (about assessing and hiring) and that you’re not just winging it. And 2) It helps you to remain focused during the give and take of the interview, to gather the needed information you’ll want to share with others, to compare one candidate to another, and then to make recommendations for who the finalists are going to be. Whether you use the questions as presented in this guide or you create your own — it doesn't matter. Just get organized and take your assessment and hiring to another level with solid tools. Ropella often custom creates interview and assessment guides for the clients we serve. If you’d like to learn more about this, please reach out to us, and we’ll set up a conversation.
