Candidate Selection Rule #6: Keep Them Talking



Keep candidates talking about themselves.

Don’t let a candidate trick you with a discussion on sport in general, or what you both thought of some holiday spent somewhere. Turn the topic of sport into their competitive drive, achievements and recognition that they get from it.

Some interviewees are extremely adroit at introducing red herrings and so dodging crucial areas of their past life or present circumstances.

The subject is the candidate. Make them keep to it.
