Each and every doubt will be given a green or red flag, by making use of their unique interviewing techniques. A board of experts interviews the candidate with an aim to access his personal abilities and suitability for providing the service or services he has applied for.
The interviewing authority will also have a record of the individual candidate’s career. The interviewer intends to judge the intellectual quality of the candidate and assess his social traits as well as the level of his awareness of his surroundings. The I.Q level, mental alertness, power of analysis, assimilation, logical exposition, the balance of judgment and moral integrity are some of the signification traits of the personality of the candidates that are taken into consideration during the interview process.
However, the technique of interview should not be considered as a very difficult cross-examination. Most of the candidates tend to develop a fear out of their anxiety. It is just a conversation, a natural thought-provoking and purposeful talk which intends to bring out the tendencies of a candidate. Moreover, the personal interview is not at all meant to test the candidate’s knowledge in a particular subject or field or his general knowledge.
