Tips and Advice for Employers

Candidates are more discerning than ever and often have several vacancies to choose from. It is in your interest to present a professional image of yourself and your company. Even if the candidate is not chosen for a job, at least they will convey good feedback to others.

  • Review CV’s before candidate arrives.
  • Let reception know that you will be busy and stop calls or divert you telephone. Turn off mobile.
  • Have a private room where you can talk.
  • Ensure that there are no interruptions.
  • Introduce anyone else who is to be involved in the interview.
  • Put the candidate at ease to start with.
  • Let them know what your process is and what they can expect.
  • Establish and use a standard bank of questions.
  • Wherever possible don’t interview across a desk, try sitting the candidate at the side.
  • Ask candidates to briefly take you through their career and verify dates (see if these match up to their CV, if they have fabricated dates; they won’t remember).


  • Ask candidates to complete application forms in busy reception areas.
  • Interview in busy areas or offices where you are likely to be disturbed.
  • Give positive vibes unless you’re sure that they are the right person for the job.
  • Take up references until you have offered the candidate the job, this may jeopardize their current role.
