Six Tips For Better Interviews

If you want to get the best from your applicants, you can help yourself by building up trust and encouraging openness.


Here’s six tips for better interviews:

  • Arrange the room layout
    Sit at adjacent sides to a table; avoid direct across-the-desk positions, alternatively dispense with a table altogether.
  • Maintain intermittent eye contact
  • Look positive and interested
  • Show concern, surprise, amusement
    reflect emotional responses, facial expression and tone of voice.
  • Sit forward at times, work at the desk with the candidate when appropriate
    use space and body posture.
  • Leave silence
    when the candidate needs to reflect over issues.
