How to hire the right person: Part 4 - Preparing for the Interview [Video – 4:35] (2013)

This is part four of a five-part series on the hiring process, offering advice to employers on hiring the right person for a job.

The best interviews are based on good job descriptions and job advertisements, the narrator says. She encourages employers to plan their questions in advance, and focus on open-ended questions that will help candidates demonstrate why they are suitable for the job.

Decide how each candidate will be evaluated in a systematic way. For example, responses might be rated on a three-point scale, and certain questions may carry more weight than others.

Other tips include establishing a calm environment for the interviews and doing a quick review of each candidate’s application before the interview begins.
