The DO’s & DON’Ts of an Interview Process
When you are trying to attract and retain the highest calibre candidates for your firm your interview process is often overlooked as one of the key components. During the recruitment process you are selling your firm to the candidate as much as they are selling their skill set to you and the first impression you give off is often the deciding factor.
It is important to make yourself as attractive as possible to these high calibre candidates as they have a savvy knowledge of the market and will compare their experience during the process to your competitors.
Here are a few key Do’s and Don’ts.
An Ideal Process
Round 1: Informal interview cultural fit (ideally someone senior) – pre-screen with HR optional
Round 2: Technical interview with a “case-study” ideally on a recent project – can they do the job?!
Round 3: Leadership Interview – sell the firm/vision, progression, clarity on role, address any concerns
Round 4: Peer-to-peer chat (lunch, drinks, etc…) – what’s it actually like to work there?
