Conduct Multiple Interviews, Chapter 1 - Part 1
- How many interviews do I need to do?
- What kind of interviews do I need to do?
- Why is interviewing so important
This guidance describes how to interview candidates by conducting multiple interviews.
Interviewing candidates effectively is the most important thing a manager does. We don't get to say that - "the most important thing a manager does" - but one time, so when we say it, we mean it.
Unfortunately, interviewing candidates falls under the Christmas rule. We don't do it very often. It's really important to us. Therefore, most of us STINK at it. And to make matters worse, the only way many of us have seen it done is poorly... so with no other model we're likely to repeat doing it that very same way.
This is BAD. This is, in fact, VERY VERY BAD.
To alleviate this, let's learn how to interview others effectively. We start by learning that one interview is never enough. Never, EVER enough, even for our best friends whom we've known for years.
