Interview Planning

A successful interview occurs when not only the candidate is well prepared for their interview, but when you are as well! Structured interviews are twice as effective in predicting how well an employee will do for you. A structured interview, unlike a free-flowing interview requires that you do your planning, both on the candidate and the position, and create a structured plan for your interview process.

How To Interview For A Cultural Fit

If an employee lacks particular skills to perform a duty, they can be trained. If they do not fit into your company culture, you have a whole other problem on your hands; one that will not be fixed with any amount of training. Employees that do not align with your company culture leads to poor work quality, decreased job satisfaction and a potentially toxic environment. 

There is no one single question to determine if your potential employee will fit into your company culture. A cultural interview should have a flow to it and be natural in conversation, all the while you are assessing their mannerisms and reactions to your questions. Below are some general tips for interviewing for company culture as well as topics to be aware of when conducting your cultural interview.

Cracking the Resume Code


A resume holds a lot of information and says a lot about your candidate. It's a piece of paper that is initially the only tool a candidate has to make an impact. The average HR manager spends only 6 seconds reviewing a resume. How many superstar candidates have fallen through the cracks of various career opportunities because the interviewer missed a key detail or strength? 

If you know what to look for, resumes can tell you much more about a candidate than just their education and a list of jobs they have had in the past. All you need to do is look between the lines and past the list of jobs for signs of the type of candidate that this person really is.
