Making the Job Interview More Effective

Ask an HR professional which the most important tool for selecting a candidate is, and the pre-employment interview is likely to emerge as the overwhelming answer. Few other means get close to the interview as a tool for helping an organization with the hiring. No other method helps the organization’s HR assess the suitability of a candidate.

Despite the extreme importance of the interview, many organizations fail to derive the high value that it is capable of delivering. This is because they fail to understand that the interview can be a potent tool for helping the organization to assess the candidate, but only if it is structured properly. Most interviews fail to elicit the best from a candidate because they do not have the depth and incisiveness needed for doing this. A wily candidate could artfully trick the interviewer into mistaking what she wants to hear for real ability.

Is the interview per se to be blamed for this? No. It is not so much the interview itself, as much as the way in which it is done, that is responsible for this situation. Why this happens is that candidates can easily trick untrained and unskilled interviewers and can get ahead of them in guising what is undesirable in them and overplaying their attractive qualities. If an interview fails to get the best out of a candidate, its purpose if largely unserved. This is what an unstructured interview does. It is likely to select an unsuited candidate and end up hiring a bad resource for the organization.

A thorough understanding of the techniques for making the interview more effective

With some thoughtfulness and insight, interviews can become more effective. It is never impossible for organizations’ HR to learn this art and inculcate it into their interviewing practices. When the interviewer is armed with the right techniques, the interview becomes effective and impactful and results in the company finding the right fit, something that is of vital importance to it. A few principles need to be adapted and applied to help companies achieve this.

Safety Sign Colors and International Standards

Colors make a difference to our environment. They help us analyze the surroundings and distinguish between objects. We recognize plants as green and the sky as blue, whereas a frog, for example, can be either green or blue. Deviant colors, in this case blue, warns us about poisonousness. If we detect unusual colors in our food, for example, we associate them with rottenness, which then activates a warning in our mind “Don’t eat!” Colors cause diverse feelings and opinions, and even distinct…See More
