Interviewing is an important step in the employee selection process. If done effectively, the interview enables the employer to determine if an applicant’s skills, experience, and personality meet the job’s requirements.
The various techniques of interview structure include phone interviews, one-on-one interviews, group interviews and panel interviews. Phone interviews are used primarily as a screening tool. Interviewers use them to check salary requirements, clarify items on the resumé and ask about any gaps in employment.
