Is the Job interview process too old fashioned? Do we need to modify it?
Should there be a drastic change in the way job interviews are conducted? Give your unique suggestions in overhauling the manner in which they are conducted.
We have all attended interviews, dressed up our CVs and going smartly to the interview and sit there waiting, answer a few questions asked by senior members and get an answers yes or no. Many companies recruit through online interviews and decide on fresh appointments.
Many times we have seen the most suitable person for the post does not get the job and the best performer at the interview does not deliver as promised. Sometimes people are appointed via interviews based on the important phone calls and strings they pull.
There will always be exceptions (niche jobs that needs a rigorous selection process), but, in general, are there any other methods of appointing a suitable person based on aptitude? That is, selection not necessarily based on years of experience on paper? Based on actual performance, would a trial of 1-2 months decide that yes, this would be the best candidate to be appointed?
