Daily Employer Tip: Stay Consistent

January 6th, 2011 | Hiring Resources | No Comments »

It’s natural to talk differently to each candidate you interview; after all, each person is unique and your connection with each is equally unique. But it’s important to keep the overall interview fundamentally the same because it’s the only way you’ll be able to successfully compare candidates to one another. You may get along really well with Candidate A and have a great conversation with him, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll be great at the job. So, make sure to ask the same questions of Candidate A as you do of Candidate B, and evaluate their answers by the same standards. Consistency is the key to choosing the best candidate for the job.
