The job search can feel dreadful, but what about the interview process? How many interviews should you go through? How do you know if it's normal?
In this episode we talk about:
1) What is too excessive during an interview
2) Why communication is important
3) What the reality really is
4) How long you should your notice be
5) A helpful schedule for job searching
A recap of some of what we discussed:
I don’t believe there's a need honestly for more than 5 interviews if it’s in an executive role. If you are in a mid or entry position 3 should be more than enough.
Through an interview and based on the conversation you can easily understand if the individual has the skills that's needed to perform the responsibilities of the role.
I think what brings in a positive interview experience is how streamlined and how much communication you receive.
If you want to limit the number of interviews, panel interviews are great.
2 or 3 individuals over the web meeting or in person.
This way everyone can get an understanding of a candidate and they aren’t going through the crazy interview process, feeling discouraged.
It’s a terrible feeling to go through all the interviews and then not end up as the one with the offer.
I get that, I do think each interview is a lesson and experience for the candidate to learn and take advantage of.
This is why I do believe though just as finding the right candidate is important to the employer, the candidate having the right experience is also just as important.
Panel interviews are also a great way to help with this.
