10 Tips to Interview Like a Pro

How to Determine Which Candidates are Right for Your Company

Given that your staff is your top resource, it is important to make the most out of your interviews with potential candidates. In her article “10 Tips to Interview Like a Pro,” Dawn Cacciotti, senior vice president, human resources of the National Restaurant Association offers guidance for interviewing job candidates.

 

  • Conduct the interview in a quiet spot which allows you and the candidate to focus on the conversation.
  • Always show the same respect to candidates that you expect from them.
  • Include a variety of questions in the interview, asking candidates yes/no questions, as well as questions that require a more lengthy response.
  • Try to learn more about the candidate’s personality through questions that ask them to provide examples from their past work experience.
  • Make sure to ask follow-up questions which demonstrates genuine interest in the candidate’s answers.
  • If the position requires specific certifications, make sure that the candidate has the necessary background to qualify.
  • Focus on behavioral-based interviewing. Think about the common characteristics of your top performers and ask questions to determine if candidates also possess these traits.
  • Always pay attention to smaller details, such as non-verbal cues from the candidate. Did they come in and smile? Did they dress appropriately for the interview and the position?
  • Consider a test run, giving candidates the opportunity to work half days with their potential team (with pay). This will be a great way to reveal the candidate’s strengths and weaknesses.
  • Allow job candidates to ask you questions which can reveal their preparedness as well as enthusiasm for the opportunity.
  • Have closing comments prepared. Always thank the candidate for their time and interest. Even if you’re not interested in hiring the candidate, it is always important to remain courteous.
