Certain principles for better selection
There are therefore certain principles that if observed by both the interviewers and the interviewees could lead to better selection.1) The interviewers must be trained to know what to look for in the interviews because not all information about the candidate is relevant.
2) The interviewer should be prepared to ask the right questions, mainly questions that can be given specific answers. Questions that have no useful answers should be avoided e.g. "tell me about yourself".
3) Multiple interviews utilizing several different interviewers could be used to facilitate a comparison of evaluation.
4) The interview should be supplemented by data from an application form, results from various tests and information obtained from references.
5) The interviewers should strive to put the interviewee at ease and get them to talk about achievement and not irrelevant general issues.
6) The interviewers should allow the interviewee a chance to ask questions.
7) The same questions should be asked of all candidates for the same position.
