As you can imagine, at Coburg Banks, we spend a lot of time advising our candidates about how to do well in job interviews.
But they’re not the only ones who need a little bit of advice from time-to-time.
Interviewers too are on trial during the recruitment process.
And if they mess it up – it could really negatively affect their employer brand!
So this week I’ve created a SlideShare about the 12 most common mistakes interviewers make – to give interviewers a helping hand.
It is really (really) important that you behave appropriately in an interview.
So, remember these key rules of interview etiquette…
• Be prepared.
• Be (or act) confident.
• Be (or act) interested.
• Never, ever ask inappropriate questions.
• Let your candidate speak!
• But don’t just sit silently.
• Don’t ask unfair questions.
• Your interviewer is NOT your best friend. Be professional.
• Don’t lie.
• Don’t give in to bias.
If you stick to all of the above, you’re interviewee is bound to feel more comfortable and will go away feeling positive about the opportunity.
