And 2) It helps you to remain focused during the give and take of the interview, when gathering the needed information you’ll want to share with others, as you compare one candidate to another, and then are asked 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 - no matter. Just get organized and take your assessment and hiring to another level with sold tools.
