For your recruitment drive to be a success, use these four tips to develop an interview questionnaire

Tip #1: List a set of questions you'll ask all applicants to check if they're right for the job.

Tip #2: Tailor your questions according to the candidates' CV and abilities.

Tip #3: Don't include personal or discriminatory questions in your questionnaire.

Tip #4: The Labour Law for Managers Loose Leaf Service says when you prepare your questions, you need to:

  • Prioritise the competencies and behaviours relevant to the job specifications and requirements;
  • Develop accurate scoring criteria for the rating of your questions, based on the above priorities;
  • Classify questions into functional areas and determine the weighting criteria for each to focus on scoring; and
  • Apply this approach fairly and consistently to all candidates.

But be warned, your interview questionnaire could fail if you don't do this one thing…

Slash your recruitment costs by 45%...

Fire your poor performers…

Save yourself hours, days, even weeks…

In three easy steps

***********************

When it comes to interview questionnaires, allocate the same amount of time for each candidate and ask similar questions

The Labour Law for Managers Loose Leaf Service says 'if you've got a standard set of questions and time allotted to each interview, it'll be a lot tougher for a candidate to claim you unfairly discriminated against him.'
