Effective Interview Techniques

Behavioural questions ask the interviewee to describe situations where they have actually demonstrated the abilities you are looking for. An interview is a two-way communication process to gain an accurate picture of the candidate’s attributes, character and potential fit within the company, whilst at the same time ensuring that you give the interviewee a good impression of the firm. This guide will tell you how.
