Just like searching for a new job, interviewing for that next great hire can also seem like a full-time job in itself. Once you have some candidates in the pipeline, and are ready to interview, here are 4 quick tips on how you can maximize your time and make it as efficient of a process as possible.
1. Conduct Back-to-Back Interviews with Candidates whenever possible.
2. Get to know your candidates before you interview them.
In the interest of efficiency, study up on your candidates prior to the interview! This means reading their resume, checking out their LinkedIn profile as well as other social media avenues. You will then be able to come to the interview prepared with more tailored questions specific to the candidate as well as notes on areas that you want to dig into during the interview. You will be able to pull more insightful information from the candidate that will result in better hiring decisions. This prep work will likely impress candidates as well just as it impresses you when candidates do their homework prior to the interview. People appreciate that.
