is something that you're looking for one on one help from me then I will give you details

about that at the end of this video now as a recruiter or hiring manager you may actually

find that when it comes to interviewing candidates this might actually comes very natural to

you maybe you really enjoy asking people questions and gaining insight into their experiences

and who they are as professionals but are you interviewing them in the best way possible

where you're gonna get true insight into what they're really capable of or So asking them

questions that are a little bit tricky that will make them nervous and squirm and limit

their ability to be able to show you who they truly are so today I'll be showing you the

right way on how to interview a candidate so that it's not only efficient but you're

gonna be able to gain clear accurate insight into whether there are real potential employee

for your company so here's a checklist of four tips that you wanna make sure you're

doing tip number one Have at least three to five questions that you want to ask ready

beforehand never start an interview with so what questions do you have for me too the

job candidate good job candidates can smell lack of preparation on your part as a hiring

manager right away if you start with this question being prepared with targeted questions

shows professionalism on your part as a hiring manager and these questions can be anything

that you personally feel are appropriate to To determine if they are a potential fit for

the job and the company you can always start off with the classic tell me about yourself

followed by why do you feel you're fit for this position followed then by can you please

tell me about a time where and insert a specific experience or type of experience that you

want them to describe to you and then ended off with what we're aspects of your previous

world that you most enjoyed each of these questions have a unique purpose as to why

you would be asking them so you want to determine what that purpose is What it is that you're

looking for in your ideal candidates answer tip number two is to communicate your expectations

for this person in this position throughout the interview process as a hiring manager

it's easy for you to get caught up with just asking the interview we questions about them

their roles and their experiences without revealing very much about yourself the job

or the company you wanna make sure that you let the job candidate know what it is that

you The hiring manager hopes for this person to achieve when you explain the goal for this

position the purpose for this role if they're good job candidate you can see enthusiasm

and excitement in their face but if they're not you can see that maybe they're not really

looking to contribute or add value to your Organization they have to show some sort of

level of enthusiasm and excitement when you can describe the purpose and the goal for

this role tip number three I like the items in this Tv that you want to ask about when

you highlight Specific experiences and then ask the job candidate about them this is giving

them the opportunity to showcase to you their value what they can do for you and what experience

they have so if they have the ability to answer you well by giving you clear details giving

showing clear achievements then you know that they know what they're talking about and that

they have the ability to do your job but if somehow you're asking about specific experiences

and they're stumbling and they don't they're tripping over their words and it's not just

cuz they're nervous but they don't really know Talking about then that is a Red flag

tip number four know the difference between someone who's nervous versus someone who has

the wrong experience credentials or is unqualified one of the things that I find happens with

recruiters and hiring managers when interviewing candidates is that they mistakenly assume

that when a candidate is nervous that that automatically means it's a sign that they

are probably not a good fit for their Organization nervousness should not equate to their potential

maybe they're nervous Because of the way that you greeted them and that the way that you

are currently exiting your body language is causing them to tense up and not feel comfortable

around you as a recruiter and hiring manager you wanna give a fair chance to every candidate

that comes through the door to be able to demonstrate and prove himself to you because

that slightly nervous candidate might actually be a superstar employee who is hardworking

and dedicated but you were too quick to dismiss them because they were nervous now on the

other hand if you have Done a good job at getting them to feel settled and not nervous

and they're still struggling to tell you what their experience is then that is a Red flag

and that is an indicator that maybe they don't have the right qualifications for what you're

looking for and finally tip number five if they seem to be a fit for your company let

them know what the next steps would be managing expectations is extremely important in keeping

your reputation as a hiring manager and as a professional in general so just Simple email

because it's common courtesy so there you have it those are my top tips on how to interview

your job candidates the right way now if you yourself happen to be a job candidate you're
