Give the candidate your attention. Get to the details. Ask probing questions about real situations. Take time to document key conversation highlights immediately Select a quiet and stress-free environment, no interruptions Avoid ambiguity, accomplishments by a previous group may or may not reflect the individual talent Focus on the Candidate : Focus on the Candidate Focus on the Candidate, not the job. A frequent mistake is to focus the time discussing details of the position, the organization or the past employees. Be sure to keep the attention on the candidate. Measuring Responses : Measuring Responses Direct the candidate to keep questions and responses focused on personal decisions and actions. Situation – Action - Result : Situation – Action - Result Situation Action Result Ask for an example of a real situation from the candidate experience related to specific Key Job Factors. “Give me an example of a situation in which you used communication skills . . . “ Discuss details of the action and specific candidate action. Identify use of skills related to the position. “Did you write the text, give the speech or make the copies? How many people involved . .” Discuss the result of the action, possible alternatives, good and bad impact, and what was learned. “If you have the opportunity to do that again, what would you do same or different?” Use “Open Ended” questions so the candidate has a chance to ‘tell the story’ in his or her own words.
