Wiz’s Wisdom — Interviewing Tips from the White Now Wizard


Interviewing a prospective candidate is an unnatural and stressful situation for BOTH the interviewee AND the interviewer !!!

The key to a successful interview is PREPARATION and PRACTICE.

It is important that you have done the ground work PRIOR to sitting down with the candidate so that you are more relaxed and at ease. This will be reflected in the way you speak and relate to the candidate and will ultimately make for a much more successful and meaningful interview. Below are some key points that you need to consider if and when you are going to interview:

  • Make some general notes about the questions that you intend to ask
  • Sit down with the Position/Job Description and establish what the KEY attributes and skills are that you require and use these to tailor your questions
  • Make a detailed list of questions (usually between 12 and 20 depending on the role you are recruiting for)
  • For any of the important information that you require, make sure you have a couple of questions that probe the area you want to find out about. It is important that you are prepared to ask the candidate to expand on their answer if you do not get what you want the first (or second, or third) time
  • Plan the environment. Thought should be given to where you and the candidate are going to sit. Where possible, try to avoid having the candidate’s back to a door and if there are windows looking in to the offices, draw the blinds to avoid distractions; make sure the process is private; that there are not any interruptions and that the interviewee is looked after upon arrival and whilst they wait (tea/coffee/water)
  • Don’t forget that when you get nervous, your mouth dries out. Your candidates are exactly the same — please remember to have plenty of water on hand so that you can keep them hydrated
  • Put yourself AND the interviewee at ease — begin by ‘chatting’ about the position/ organisation and get the candidate to tell you a little about themselves or previous roles (try to keep this brief, but make sure the candidate is in the swing of things before you move on to the more probing questions). Remember to SMILE !!!
  • Ask open-ended questions (questions that require more than a YES of NO answer)
  • Make sure the interviewee does the majority of the talking — after-all, you want to find out about them
  • Bare-in-mind the idea of an interview is not to ‘stump’ the interviewee !!! Ask questions that they will be able to answer and encourage them to expand. You should lead in to an in-depth question with a brief query about whether they have had a specific experience. For example: Have you had the opportunity to be involved in the setting of budgets ? If the candidate answers ‘No’, you can move on. However if they answer ‘Yes’, you can probe more deeply with: “Please would you tell us about a time when you have had to set a budget and how you went about doing so ?”
  • Building pressure will most likely cause a candidate to ‘clam-up’. Calm, relaxed and well-thought-out questions will bring out the information you need to make an informed decision
  • Once again, don’t be afraid to go back over something if it needs further clarification
