7 Ways Interviewers Miss Out on Great Talent

To attract top talent to your organization, it is important to avoid some common pitfalls of interviewing candidates, including:

  1. Making the interview all about your needs
  2. Starting the interview by sharing all the pressures and difficulties of the role
  3. Making the individual uncomfortable by showing how senior and important you are
  4. Giving the candidate no real opportunity to talk about themselves
  5. Structuring the interview so that there is no time to have any in-depth discussion of anything
  6. Making the candidate feel as if they have to jump through hoops to feel worthy
  7. Asking hostile questions designed to stump the candidate rather than opening up discussion

We can help you establish best practices in the way you conduct interviews to hire the best talent and position your company as an employer of choice.
