2. What is Interview Process?

If you are looking to hire only the best minds, you must have a streamlined interview process. So does that mean you should go for a harder interview process? The answer is yes. A rigorous interview process proves that the company places a high value on finding employees who are a good match for the company culture and the position. 

So are you looking to improve your company’s interview process? Here are some steps to consider when structuring your interview process:

Telephonic/Web Interview: Telephonic/Web interviews are a no-nonsense way of shortlisting the right fits for the position before you invite the candidates for a personal round of interview. They also save a lot of time and effort. 

The Aptitude/Behavioral test: The aptitude/behavioral tests allow you to find the best suitable candidate for the position, and help you hire employees who can drive innovation, team spirit, productivity, customer satisfaction, and profits. Focus on the objectives like Domain knowledge, interpersonal skills, values, etc. and decide how candidates will be moved forward or eliminated based on the results.

Face to Face Interview: Once you have decided to invite a candidate for a personal round of interview, you already know that the candidate is well qualified for the role; next, you should focus on culture fit and work style. See if you can identify what motivates a candidate, what drew him to your company and how they work on a team, amongst other questions.

Conclusion: The ultimate goal of the whole interview process is to find candidates who have the right skills and who are also a great culture fit for the organization. Once you have identified the right interview process for your company you’d be able to make the right hires.
