This Process Guide for Interviewing ties together the Who, What, When, Where, and Why of your interviewing process. It tells staff in each role what’s expected of them, what to do when, how to do it, and what tools to use. It makes them accountable, and eliminates the excuse, “I didn’t know I was supposed to do that.”

The point of the interviewing process is to answer these three questions about candidates:

  1. Can they do the job?
  2. Will they do the job?
  3. Can you work with them?

While it sounds easy, there are several steps involved to do it right. During the interviewing process, you want to be sure to treat applicants like customers. Their experience with you will make a lasting impression that they’ll remember and share with others.

The guide is used by HR, managers, and staff involved in the recruiting process to outline the step-by-step process for interviewing, clarify who is responsible for each step, and provide point-and-click access to the documents needed for each step.

The Process Guide for Staff - Interviewing references all the ConnectsUs documents related to interviewing, and gives you the option to link them directly to the guide so your staff can open the documents while reading about them. Linking to documents right from the guide eliminates questions like:

  • What documents do I need?
  • When am I supposed to use them? 
  • How do I use them?
  • Where do I find them?
  • Is this the latest version?
