Being Too Quick

During a structured interview, it is likely that a candidate will make a favorable or unfavorable first impression.  While these impressions can go a long way for many interviewers in the final decision making process, it is essential to try to give the candidate a significant amount of time to come up with a view on the candidate.  By making an early decision while interviewing a candidate, the candidate is not given the chance to prove themselves during the interview process.

“Most interviewers make a like or dislike decision about a candidate within the first 5 to 15 minutes of an interview and spend the balance of the time confirming their first impressions – positive or negative impression. This first impression will often taint the interviewer’s perception of the answers received. (e.g., A candidate who is perceived negatively will have his/her answers judged more critically than a person who is perceived more positively.)

RECOMMENDATION: Interviewers should make a conscious effort to reserve any judgment for at least 30 minutes to allow any nervousness on the part of the candidate to dissipate. Very often, a candidate who does not make a positive first impression can really shine as the interview progresses, while the candidate with a great first impression begins to diminish as the interview questions require more specificity.”

Utilizing this interview technique, as well as by unbiasedly completing employee review and performance appraisal forms, will ultimately lead to greater hiring success for your company.
