Four types of interviews

Use any, or a combination of these interview types to find the candidate that fits the brief.
  1. Use an unstructured interview when you want to find out a little more about the candidate. Hold a conversation rather than asking planned questions.
  2. Use a structured interview to compare candidates. Ask all applicants the same structured questions.
  3. Use a mixed interview to ask the same structured and unstructured questions and get more information through conversation.
  4. Use a competency-based interview to find out if the person has the required competencies for the job. Ask questions that allow the candidate to give examples of times in the past when he's displayed the required competencies.

Generally, a first interview should take approximately 30 minutes. If you include the competency-based questions, the interview should take approximately an hour. Decide how many interviews you need based on the number of questions you need to ask and how many competencies you need to assess.
