about the overall performance of the candidate, then will finalise the decision. But if the decision is taken any timeduring the interview abruptly after hearing/observing a few performances, the decision would be incomplete. Thiserror is known as snap judgement and would obviously make selection decision faulty.
5. Leading questions:Leading questions are those which will indicate a desired answer into the question like ‘Doyou agree that profit is necessary?’. This type of questions does not help to being out the hidden talents, qualities, orother characteristics that the interview intends to uncover. It will make the purpose of interview lost.6. Interviewer Domination:It is expected that the interviewer will talk less and the interviewee will speak more toexhibit his/her talent. But if the interviewer talks the interviewee down with talking more about the company,importance of his/her job in the company, the incentive and benefit package of the company etc. in the board, thenthe purpose of interview will not be achieved.7. Playing Attorney :Interview is a two-way communication that will help both the parties to know, understand,and to convince one another. But if the interviewer interrogate the interviewee like whatan advocatedoes in thecourt with adefendant, then the purpose of the interview is lost without any positive result for making effectiveselection decision.8. Similar to me:Interviewer sometimes take decision in favour of the candidate if he/she speaks, believes,projects anything which has got strong resemblance to that of the interviewer. This ‘similar to me’ error also makesthe selection decision incorrect and faulty.9. Improper phrasing of questions:The questions should be specific enough to draw out the necessaryinformation and they should not prematurely reveal what answer the interviewer would like to hear. So, improperphrasing and timing of questions is a difficult problem in getting desired result of interview.How to Overcome the Errors of InterviewIn order to overcome those errors to interviewing, experts have suggested actions that will help makinginterviewing effective. They are:1. Interviewers’ Training:Interview is an effective communication. It is not learnt automatically. A systematic andprogrammed learning will make a person competent to take interview. So, the interviewer or interviewers shall haveto take training on ‘how to take interview’ to make oneself competent and knowledgeable about the interviewingsystem, effective question framing, logical judgment and evaluation system.2. Interviewing Plan:Plan precedes all courses of action. Interviewing also needs a plan. So, before interviewing,a plan will be made about where and how to take interview, the seating arrangement, who will speak about what,who will be the chairman/coordinator, the sequence of questioning and other relevant issues and matters. It willmake the interviewing successful.
