Interviewing Managers — Tips to get more realistic responses to your questions

Interviewees often get nervous before interviews, and why ? …mainly because they are worried about being ‘put on the spot’ with questions and have no time to put together a reasonable answer, which can throw them for the rest of the interview and .. they may actually be the perfect candidate. So why not give the candidates a little more time to think about what they really want to say ? Have you thought about this for an idea ? …………

When organising interviews, why not ask the candidate to come in 45 minutes earlier than you see them. Sit them in a comfortable area and give them a copy of the questions you want to ask them at interview. They will have time to think about their answers, they will be more relaxed and they will appreciate your efforts and foresight. Remember, you are not testing the candidates as to whether they can answer questions quickly but their knowledge. Who doesn’t need some time to put together their thoughts ?
