Structured Interview Skills
Structured Interview Skills


When evaluating people for selection purposes, it is important to know whether the candidates have the required skills in order to perform in a specific position, as well as the extent to which they can adapt to the team and the culture of the organization. Given that the use of objective assessment procedures in human resources management ensures a fairer, more effective and profitable employee selection method, it is important that interviews for selection purposes are conducted in a systematic and structured way, in order to constitute an accurate and useful tool in the assessment process.

Additionally to the candidates’ biographical information, structured interviews can also focus on the evaluation of competencies that are essential for employees of the organization (competency-based interview). Through that approach, information that is directly related to the selection criteria set by the organization will be derived in the most scientific way.
