How to effectively take the driver’s seat during an interview
If you’re reading this article, it is likely that you’ve been interviewed before. Your first-ever interview might have been when you were a teenager applying for a spot at the grocery store. You may have experienced a few higher-stakes interviews since then but have you ever been on the other side of the table (or screen)?
Conducting an effective interview is no small task and there is no one way to do it. G&A’s Recruiting Manager, Eleesha Martin, was recently featured in the Ladders article, “9 reasons hiring managers will remember you." Martin discussed the interview process from a hiring manager’s perspective.
When it comes to conducting a good interview, she recommends that you first create an interview guide with a list of questions related to the specific role. She also suggests a 20/80 talking ratio, “Talk 20% and listen 80% of the time,” she says. “The more the candidate talks, the more information can be gathered to help make a decision on their candidacy.”
