The selection process.


I really hate going for interviews. I know that it is an area in which I am not skilled. Even though I have a background that includes recruitment and conducting selection interviews, I am hopeless on the other side of the questions. Conducting interviews can be just as nerve racking for others.

The hardest part of the whole process is devising the right questions. Which questions will being you the information that you are after? How can you encourage the candidate to give you the answers that you want?

If you are part of a selection panel, or applying for interviews, here is a site that you might like to visit. It is called Good Interview Questions, and it looks at how to structure the questions for the best results. This is really good information especially if you are applying for jobs. Knowing how a selection panel works will give you clues into the best way to present your answers.

This is a new site but promises to have lots of great content.
