Round Two

The interview process and structured interview both are effective to help companies choose the proper candidate for a position.  Although this is helpful, while interviewing a candidate for some higher positions, it may be useful to have a second round of interviews.

“For senior-level positions, I’m an advocate of a 2nd round of interviews for the top two or three candidates. If you are inclined to use a 2nd interview, here are a few suggestions for formats that you could follow:

- You can conduct a working interview, where you have employees of the firm describe a situation that the executive will be handling. Then, the interview team and the candidate brainstorm solutions to the situation along with projected positive and negative consequences.

- You can use the scenarios, situations, and case studies that were noted in a previous section at this interview.

- The 2nd interview could be more of a social event such as golf, dinner, a sporting event, etc. where there is less emphasis on formality.

- Second interviews are great opportunities to include the candidate’s spouse. My suggestion is to establish an agenda for the spouse that is separate from the candidate’s agenda. Then establish joint activities later in the day to observe how the candidate and spouse interact together.”

The best thing about a second round of interviews is that,  if anything, they will reinforce things that you already know about a candidate.  Performance appraisals will be properly filled out, and employee reviews will be more accurate.
