I have presented hundreds of sessions on how to interview effectively. I believe that interviews give you a good feel for the cultural fit of the candidate.
They are not particularly accurate for predicting job performance, however. I spend a lot more time on background checks and reference checking to determine what the candidate has actually done in contrast with what he tells me he will do when he comes to work for me.
But, interviewing can tell you a lot about the person you are thinking about hiring including how he may fit in your work group. Here are my favorite interview tips and my best interview tips to help you conduct the most successful interviews.
I have also developed job interview questions that guide you in leading a behaviorally based interview. Readers have taken the time to share some of their favorite interview questions, too. These reader submitted interview questions and answers are hilarious.
