Interview Guide Management

Interview Guide Management enables administrators to build and configure interview guides that define the competencies that an interviewer should be looking for in a candidate for a specific interview. You can add questions to each competency to direct interviewers in assessing how the applicant demonstrates the competency. Interviewers can also rate applicants on each competency, based on a rating scale defined for the guide. The guides can be used by interviewers to more effectively manage the interview process and ensure that key elements of the skills, ideal qualifications, and minimum position requirements are covered during the interview.

From the Interview Guide Management page, administrators can create, view, edit, and copy all interview guides that are configured for the portal.

Note: Implementation of the Performance module is not required in order to use Interview Guide Management. Competencies and a rating scale can be created within the guide. However, for portals with Performance enabled, all existing competency models within Competency Assessment Management are available for use in interview guides.

To access Interview Guide Management, go to Admin > Tools > Recruit > Interview Guides.
