Eight Types of Job Interviews !!! - May 14th, 2006

One-On-One Interviews:
One person interviews each candidate and makes the hiring decision. These interviews tend to be informal; however, it always depends on the employer's style. The interviewer will often have a series of prepared questions, but may have some flexibility in their choices. It is important to maintain eye contact with the person interviewing you.

Panel/Board Interviews:
Job seekers are interviewed by two or more individuals, who come to a consensus as to who is the best person for the position. Government, non-profit, and many high tech organizations commonly use this type of interview. Direct your attention at the beginning and end of your response to the person who asked you the question, while in between looking at each member of the panel in turn. If you can link your response to one that you have previously given, do so. If at all possible, get the panel members talking among themselves about your responses. Obtain the names of the interviewers prior to starting and use them during the conversation.


Impromptu Interviews:
This interview commonly occurs when employers are approached directly and tends to be very informal and unstructured. Applicants should be prepared at all times for on-the-spot interviews, especially in situations such as a job fair or a cold call. It is an ideal time for employers to ask the candidate some basic questions to determine whether he/she may be interested in formally interviewing the candidate.


Dinner Interviews:
These interviews may be structured, informal, or socially situated, such as in a restaurant. Decide what to eat quickly, some interviewers will ask you to order first (do not appear indecisive). Avoid potentially messy foods, such as spaghetti. Be prepared for the conversation to abruptly change from friendly chat to direct interview questions, however, do not underestimate the value of casual discussion, some employers place a great value on it. Be prepared to switch gears rapidly, from fun talk to business talk.


Telephone Interviews:
Have a copy of your resume and any points you want to remember to say nearby. If you are on your home telephone, make sure that all roommates or family members are aware of the interview (no loud stereos, barking dogs etc.). Speak a bit slower than usual. It is crucial that you convey your enthusiasm verbally, since the interviewer cannot see your face. If there are pauses, do not worry; the interviewer is likely just taking some notes.


Group Interviews:
You will meet the staff who will be your coworkers if you get hired. They will ask you several questions. They will be primarily testing your ability to work in a team environment. They want to know how you will present information to other people, offer suggestions, relate to other ideas, and work to solve a problem. In short, your interpersonal skills will be tested. It is difficult to prepare for this type of interview except to remember what is being tested and to use the skills that you have, to be the best team player and/or leader you can be. This is a very casual type of interview, but leaving a positive and friendly impression is very important.


Stress Interviews:
These interviews are used primarily when the job the company is trying to fill involves an individual to perform under an extreme amount of stress. This interviewing style, when used, is typically found in the sales/marketing arenas. The candidate may have to wait a considerable amount of time for the interview to start, and the interviewer may not be friendly during the interview. This type of interview is used to assess an individual's ability to deal with unexpected as well as expected stressful situations.


Second Interviews:
Job seekers are invited back after they have passed the first initial interview. Middle or senior management generally conducts the second interview, together or separately. Applicants can expect more in-depth questions, and the employer will be expecting a greater level of preparation on the part of the candidates. Applicants should continue to research the employer following the first interview, and be prepared to use any information gained through the previous interview to their advantage.
