Template: Building a Comprehensive Interview Guide

We get it: sometimes, conducting hiring interviews can feel like another task on your full plate. However, while it might seem sufficient to “wing it” and just ask what feels right, this approach to interviewing can make your hiring process less organized and more biased.

Instead, follow a set of well-developed questions using an interview guide: a set of questions with specific wording, in a specific order, that interviewers can follow during the conversation.
