Implementing an interview template that includes second interview questions is an important HR fundamental.
During the interview process, it’s critical that thoughtful preparation goes into the second interview questions asked and who asks them. This interview template:
Schedule no less than 30 minutes for phone interviews, 1 hour for Round 1 in-person interviews and 1.5 hours for Round 2. If the time you reserve is too short, you will not be able to vet the candidate and allow enough time for second interview questions.
It is recommended that you limit second interview questions to no more than 10 for each round of in-person interviews, with additional time allotted for follow-up and probing questions.
Refer to additional general HR tips outlined in the Interviewing Guide.
Typically, Round 1 in-person interviews are conducted with a larger pool of candidates who were shortlisted through the telephone interviewing process. Interview questions will typically be more general.
Round 2 in-person interviews (and sometimes Round 3) are conducted to determine the finalist. Second interview questions should be more specific and geared towards really getting to know the candidate. The interview template can be used for any round of in-person interviews, but the second interview questions should be different for each round after the phone interview because candidates who proceed to the next round of interviews should not be asked the same questions.
