Course Overview

Conducting effective job interviews is essential yet challenging for managers. Whether using traditional or innovative techniques, following fundamental strategies is crucial to decrease bias, enhance accuracy, and maintain efficiency. These strategies significantly improve hiring success rates and promote fairness and professionalism in the process.

Preparation is key. Interviewers should have a pre-written plan with structured questions, follow-ups, and rating charts. Beyond question content, interviewer reactions, demeanor, tone, and body language influence candidate responses. Extracting relevant information while maintaining interview structure accurately assesses candidate competencies.

Rapport building is common but risky for bias and irrelevant disclosures. Structuring this phase carefully, keeping it brief and job-focused, minimizes subconscious judgment impacts. Psychological impressions can affect judgments, reinforcing the need for structured questioning and time management.

Detailed note-taking is vital. Notes serve as evidence, supporting decisions and ensuring accurate documentation of job-related facts. Avoiding bias and focusing solely on job details enhance fair and reliable candidate assessments.
