Interviewing Skills Appraisal

Interviewing applicants for a position within your organisation is one of the essential requirements for all leaders.  While the employment interview is likely to be one of several tools that are used to hire employees, it is the most important one, because it can tell you more about a potential employee than any other employment selection tool.

The purpose of the interview is to find the right person who has the right mix of skills, qualifications, experience, personality and attitude to make positive contributions to your organisation and be a success in their position.
  As an interviewer it is your responsibility to draw out all the information from the applicant to establish whether they will have the best fit for the role.  This will reduce the risk of passing over a good candidate and making a poor hiring decision in the long term….

This appraisal has been designed as a self-appraisal of a person’s interviewing skills.  However, it can be effectively used to determine the interviewing skills of other supervisors or managers and identify areas for improvement.
