Interview tip: Don't say a word and let the candidate do all the talking
Could you conduct an interview without saying a single word?
Globally renowned recruitment blog Tutti Recruitti caught up with Ruhig Schweigen, Talent Partner for a FTSE 20, on how he gives candidates the silent treatment
"Why bother with interview material. Don't say a word and let the candidate do all the talking
The candidate enters. I shake their hand and point to the stool
The stool has written instructions - Why should I hire you? You have 30 minutes to explain. I will not speak, but I will take notes. Once the clock reaches 0 please exit quietly
This method removes the need for interview material and ensures ultimate consistency"
