Review your candidates well
One of the most important things to remember in interviewing is that you must assess the candidates well. The truth is, there will only be very little time for you to review and assess your candidates most especially if they come in big numbers. You do not really have enough time to review all their skills and their capabilities. So some of the things that you, being an interviewer must consider are the attire they are wearing, their accessories, their way of talking or their communication skills, their way of answering, their composure since it would be the answer if they are well-experienced, confident or professional enough. It is hard to assess the candidates well, but you must consider that this is one of the most important parts in interviewing that is why it would be best if you take all these things into consideration by observing them properly.
Be warm to the candidate
It is not that you must make friends with the candidate. But giving them a warm ambiance will help them relax. The truth is, there is no point in trying to intimidate the candidate and trying to look down on them. During the interview, discuss the matters with them while looking at their eyes. Show them that you understand what they are talking about by nodding your head and always see to it that you create a comfortable discussion between the two of you. Do not rush the questions and always see to it that you are giving the candidate a chance to explain himself or a chance to answer the questions properly.
Observe probable deceit
Being the interviewer of the company, it is an important role for you to decipher if the candidate or the applicant is telling the truth. After you have asked the questions to him or her, you will know if he or she is saying the truth or otherwise. There are clinically or psychologically claimed ways on how to detect these deceits and some of which are fast blinking of the eyes while answering you, avoiding eye contact while discussing the matter, nervous fidgeting of the arm or the leg or the constant turning away from you. As the interviewer, you have the responsibility to check if the interviewee or the candidate is telling the truth and you can easily read all these from his or her movements and behavior during the interview. In applying for a job or accepting a candidate, always remember that it is important that the employer is transparent to the company so as the latter knows who they are hiring or who they trust their company with.
Make a steady silence
In this type of job interview, having silence in between conversations is not awkward at all. It is in fact a strategy. After you have asked the question to the candidate and after he or she had answered, give him or her enough time for silence. This silence is not for awkward or intimidating purposes, but you will see the characteristic of the applicant by letting the silence fall in. Either the candidate will go on talking or the candidate will reveal the much-hidden intimidation and will fall nervous and insecure during the interview. Some of the candidates who can handle well the silence during the interviews would often ask if they have already answered or the question or if there are more left to be asked. So make sure that you will be able to leave some silence after some topics with the applicant.

These are some of the reminders for those who are holding the interview and also a reminder to all those who will be held for an interview – so that they now know how the other party thinks.
