SELECT Behavioural Interview Guide

Structured Interviews

If the optional structured interview is included with the report, a detailed interview guide will be printed.  This guide will include:
  • A script to open the interview
  • A series of job-related interview questions with guidance as to what to listen for in the candidate's responses.
  • Interview Probes based on survey results.
By using this structured interview guide consistently (meaning you ask the same questions of every candidate), you will bring increased objectivity to the process. Note:  Interview guides are customized for the job and the client.
