As you plan to interview candidates, consider who you’d like on the interview team. Key stakeholders, partners, and peers of the position may all provide valuable perspectives on which candidate is most likely to be successful. Be sure to notify the interviewing team of the Ethical and Legal Obligations in the Hiring Process training, which is required for everyone involved in interviewing candidates.
Share the job description, interview topics and/or questions, and candidates’ resumes with your interview team; ask them to keep the candidate information confidential. A best practice is to provide your interview team with an interview scorecard where they can rate each candidate on the competencies you’ve identified for the position; this helps ensure a thoughtful, systematic approach to considering candidates.
After interviews are conducted, gather your interview team’s feedback through their interview scorecards and debrief discussions. Your manager will likely want to interview the top one or two candidates before a final decision is made.
