I have loads of questions about scheduling the MT recommendations on hiring. Can you offer wisdom to a first-time interviewer?
How do you schedule multiple candidates with multiple interviewers? Do the candidates interview with others on the same day as my 2nd interview (first face-to-face), or after my 3rd interview? How many candidates should I be sending to other interviewers? Do I set up an interview results-capture meeting with all of the interviewers for each candidate? Or just one capture meeting that discusses all the candidates?
I'm hiring for a reception and hospitality position that requires staff supervision and a strong ability to convey the institution's mission to tens of thousands of annual visitors (I work under an affiliate of Billy Graham, global Christian evangelist).
INCIDENTALLY: [This is my very first hiring decision. I find the hiring process through Human Resources to be foolish in many regards (one interview allowed, no direct communication from me to the candidate, no training or guidance on how to hire, etc.). However, it is difficult to not sound presumptuous when I suggest we follow MT advice. After all, what do I know? I have no experience. Even if Mark and Mike do. I am cautiously bracing myself for the hand slaps of going outside the fences of standard procedure.]
I've heard Mark allude to scheduling interviews as a forthcoming cast. Any help for me in the meantime?
