To get useful information from an interview, the interviewer should be focused on what candidates are saying and how they are saying it, not on what the next question will be, what probes to ask, or how they will score the responses. This Interview Guide Template will help interviewers stay focused and collect good information about candidates by providing:

  • A table to organize the questions to be asked, including probes and a rating scale that accompany each question.
  • Designated space to take general notes and notes about specific questions.
  • Steps to take after all interview questions have been asked.
  • Fields for overall ratings and recommendations for the interviewee.

This template can be easily modified to reflect any interview protocol, and once modified, is a critical tool for conducting and documenting the interview process.
