Most employers do job interviews before offering a position to a person. Do you think this is the best way to do it or are there better alternatives? What is the best method of choosing employees in your opinion?
Employers have various types of recruitment methods and processes to hire employees. Interviews are face to face interaction between employer and employee and one of the common ways to recruit candidates however, it is not the best way.
Every recruitment method has its own advantages and disadvantages. To assess the 360-degree personality of a candidate. Recruiters should merge more than one hiring technique. For example, In IT companies to judge technical as well as error solving ability. Recruiters should take the mock practical tests and panel interviews of the candidate. Depending on just one hiring method can result in selecting an inappropriate candidate.
The job interview method is only good for selecting candidates, whose job is to business interactions with clients and customers. For instance, people in marketing jobs, HR jobs, and consultant jobs need good customer service skills that can be best judged in interviews.
The biggest downside of the interview is that the candidates are already prepared and answering prepared questions will make it hard to check the applicant’s worthiness. In addition, it is hard to believe that candidates are not faking and showing their true intentions towards work ethics and dedication. Another drawback is simply on the basis of the degree one can’t judge the ability to perform in the workplace. In such a situation putting candidates into the task, they should typically do before offering a job position to them.
To conclude, in my opinion, the interview is not the best method for choosing a candidate’s worthiness. Employers should combine and assemble two different recruitment methods to choose suitable candidates as per the job profile.
