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.

Questioning Techniques Appraisal
All of us use questions every day, whether it is at work, home or play.  To gain the information, response or outcome that you want effectively you need to consciously apply appropriate kinds of questions.

 “When you are managing people, one of the greatest timesavers is asking questions – more specifically, asking the right questions.”
                                                                                                         Jim Rohn in “Seven Strategies for Wealth and Happiness.”

 Asking questions is a fundamental communication skill for leaders, to find out information, solve problems, establish better working relationships, persuade, motivate, interview or negotiate.  How effective is it to solve a problem or issue than by simply asking the person who knows the answer?  Asking effective questions is not easy.  How a question should be asked, what question should be asked and when a question should be asked are important aspects in questioning technique.

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

Key Performance Indicator 1    2    3    4    5   
1.I use open ended questions to open conversations.
         
2. I use leading questions to close a deal or contract.  
         
3. I use probing questions to ensure that I understand the whole story.   
         
4. I keep my questions focused on one point.
         
5. To help respondents feel at ease I move from general questions on an issue to specific questions. 
         
6. I use active listening techniques when asking questions.
