Let's say you're a manager or employee (or even a new member of HR), and you're ready to begin interviewing candidates. If resources for interviewing are available, you're often pointed to the company's public shared folder to find the resources you need. Like this.

This type of folder-view doesn't answer the questions your staff and managers will ultimately be asking about the interviewing process. Here's just a handful of them:
- Who does what? When? And how?
- Who reviews the applications?
- Who shortlists the applicants?
- Who does preliminary telephone screens?
- Who schedules the candidates and the interview panel?
- How many interviews are conducted?
- Who's included in the interview panels?
- How do we keep track of applicants?
- Who sends the regrets?
- Is there a form for that? Where is it? Is it the latest version? How do I fill it out? Then what do I do with it?
- I've never interviewed before. What type of questions are off limits? Are there any how-to guides for interviewing?
