So, how do we conduct an effectual group interview?

  • Begin the interview the same as any, with an introduction to the company and your position.
  • Have all of your interviewees introduce themselves. You could, for example, ask for a small piece of their recent work history background.
  • Create an atmosphere of sharing with questions that leave it up to the group involvement for quality answers. This is a great way to see people with extroverted or introverted tendencies within the pool.
  • Concentrate a handful of questions to ask each individual. Questions like: What things motivate you? What things frustrate you? What are your expectations of your work environment? In what ways do you handle stress?
  • To conclude leave a few minutes for candidates to ask questions to the interviewer or panel.
