questions such as those about a candidate’s marital status or political beliefs. During the interview, nonverbal gestures like smiling, maintaining eye contact, and nodding your head can show your attentiveness and make the candidate feel more comfortable. 6. Avoid unlawful or discriminatory questions Questions regarding race, religion, age, ethnic group, national origin or ancestry, political affiliations, military service, disability, or other sensitive topics may be considered discriminatory and should be avoided. Do not ask questions that might elicit such information – for example, asking about the origin of an unusual surname. As a general rule, information requested in an interview should be limited to that which is essential for determining if a person is qualified for the job. 7. Document the interview Document the interview by taking interview notes. You can later use these notes to refresh your memory when it is time to review the candidate’s qualifications and compare his or her strengths and weaknesses against other candidates. Limit your documentation to job-related information and facts, and do not include subjective observations. Disregard any irrelevant or inappropriate information volunteered by the applicant during the interview and do not write it down.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
