1. How does interviewing for intern positions differ from interviewing for permanent, professional, experienced positions?
2. Since the candidates all have english as their sencond language, should I have a native speaker interview them for me?
I've been given the task to interview and have an intern reporting to me. This is my first time in a management role in awhile. I am a younger individual contributor. I am concerned that all the advice out there deals primarily with hiring experienced professionals.
Just as if that wasn't easy enough, the candidates I am interviewing travel from Europe to the US for theirn internship. English is their 2nd language. I can have a 2nd person do the interview with me (my boss) who is a native speaker of the intern's first language. On one hand, I'd like them to be as comfortable as possible. This would mean they interview with my boss. On the other hand, I would like to interview the candidates myself. Thoughts on this topic too are welcome.
