InVista Interview Guides
The Questions—and Answers—You Need
Interview guides that get beneath the surface and beyond personality
Effective interviewing is a necessary component to optimize your talent strategy and get the most well-rounded picture of potential candidates.
The InVista Select: Personality talent assessment tool helps you narrow down your candidate pool. But assessment alone isn’t enough to make a hiring decision. You also need to conduct candidate interviews.
It can be easy for these interviews to fall into a pattern of generic questions followed, often, by rehearsed answers. And sometimes, hiring managers use stock questions they’re comfortable with but that may not really get at actionable information. Does a question like “Where do you see yourself in five years?” really tell you if a person is right for your role?
Role-Related Questions That Provide Information You Need
Break out of these types of questions and get the information you need from your candidates in a consistent, repeatable manner with InVista’s Interview Guides. These guides were developed to supplement and be used in conjunction with your InVista pre-employment assessment results. Each guide contains five to seven questions that coordinate with the InVista assessment tool (e.g., personality, role-specific, or leadership) being used.
They are designed to get to the information you need to make a confident hire by asking specific and role-related questions. Detailed benchmarks, a clear scoring matrix, and scoring worksheets help you gauge each response—and each candidate.
