How you interview
Your high levels of enthusiasm for most things in life mean that you can conjure positivity out of the most mundane situations. You will make a candidate feel welcome by creating a positive environment. You have plenty of time for an interview as long as it is positive and fun.
Where this works
Louise, you an eternal optimist who can’t bear to be around people who give off negative vibes so your interview questions will celebrate the positive rather than feeding off the negative. Due to your low boredom threshold you will try to make an interview fun and this will mean asking lots of interesting and exciting questions.
What you need to watch out for
You are also interested in those you meet and will ask lots of questions of them, some of these questions can be very personal but that is just your style and usually taken in the spirit in which it was meant. However, some candidates may be offended by this, especially the quieter ones.
3 Things to Remember If You Want To Make Better Hiring Decisions
1) You will need to keep an eye on the clock as you enjoy interviews and with some candidates you will easily run over your allotted time. Make sure you have your questions prepared and try and stick to the agenda.
2) The candidates that you will struggle with most come from the SW of the personality spectrum, so make allowances for this. Remember you are not looking for people who are good at interviews, you are looking for the best candidate for the job role.
3) Work really hard at letting the candidates do the talking. This is especially the case for candidates with high Introversion. You like to think on your feet, they like to mull things over. Both approaches have their place.
