INTERVIEW TYPES AND TIPS
Screening Interview: The screening interview may be conducted in person, over the phone, or by webcam. The purpose is to see if you meet the minimum requirements of the job. Typically, someone from the HR department will conduct the screen.
TIP: Emphasize clearly that you have the qualifications and skills needed for the position. If you are doing the screening interview by video, rehearse in advance. (See “Tips for Becoming a Video Interview Star,” page 64.)

One-on-One Interview: This is the most common interview and is typically held on site by the hiring manager. The questions will be designed to assess your qualifications and how they relate to the job. Panel Interview: This group interview usually includes three or more people who will ask you questions that correspond to their areas of interest.
TIP: Direct your answers to the person posing the question, but maintain eye contact with others in the group as well.
Luncheon Interview: The purpose of this interview is to gauge how well you handle yourself in social situations. You may be dining with your potential boss and co-workers as well as representatives from the HR department.
TIP: Select light, healthy, easy-to-eat foods. Steer clear of messy foods that you can’t eat gracefully. Don’t order alcohol, even if others do.
Peer Group Interview: This interview will introduce you to your potential co-workers. Most likely, they will not have the final say about whether or not you will be hired, but they will be evaluating you and making recommendations on whether you will “fit in.”
TIP: Focus on being agreeable and approachable, not someone who has all the answers.
Second Interview: Although similar to the first interview, the second interview is usually longer, involves more people, and will be held at the company. It’s likely this interview will be a mix of one-on-one, panel, and peer group interviews. The focus is to ensure you have the necessary skills and will fit into the company structure. Second interviews are also common when there are multiple candidates for the same position, and the organization wants to give all candidates a more-thorough look.
TIP: Listen carefully to your interviewers for any underlying concerns so that you can address. Focus on selling yourself as the “overall package.” Prove you have researched the company, emphasize your interest to contribute to the organization, and ask for the job.
