Hire an Interviewer

An interview is a conversation between two or more people where one party asks a pre-determined set of questions to the other party for a specific purpose. The person asking the questions is the interviewer and the person replying with the answers is the interviewee. Interviews are broadly classified into structured and unstructured interviews. A structured interview is where the questions are pre-determined. Each candidate is asked the same questions to gather relevant information about a given topic. Unstructured interviews consist of open-ended questions and the conversation is more casual and free-flowing.

What Interviewers Do?

When we hear the term interviewer, we immediately think about employment and job interviews. However, there are many types of interviews conducted for varied reasons by interviewers. In an employment interview, the interviewer is typically from the organization and follows the pattern of a structured interview. Interviewers who conduct qualitative market research use probing techniques to ask open-ended questions to elicit a response about a certain product/service or topic. Similarly, a journalist inviting a guest for a talk or a television show host interviewing a celebrity also classify as interviewers.

Interviewers research the topic that they need to conduct an interview on and note the important points. They conduct the interview in a composed manner and listen to what the interviewee has to say. They may cross-question the interviewee to ensure that there are no contradictions in the information given by them. After conducting the interview, an interviewer may evaluate the dialog and try to draw conclusions from it. They may also process all the information received from the interview and discuss the same with the management.

Interviewers are found across industries, working in their area of expertise. Other examples of interviewers include education counselors, therapists, television and news anchors, radio jockeys, survey researchers, etc.

Though employment interviewers are commonly seen attached to an organization, many other interviewers work on a project or ad hoc basis. There are a number of skilled interviewers available on Guru – the best place for online freelance services.

When looking to hire an interviewer, make sure your freelancer can:

  • Screen candidates that need to be interviewed
  • Record or take notes during the interview
  • Interpret and analyze responses
  • File the interview and related information into the company’s system

Qualifications of an Interviewer

It is ideal that your freelancer has the following skills:

  • Professional education or relevant experience in the given area
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
  • Familiarity with basic computer systems
  • Familiarity with analytical tools

When hiring a freelance interviewer, make sure the freelancer’s capabilities match your project’s requirements. It is also important for the interviewer to be able to maintain discretion at all times.

Benefits of a Freelance Interviewer

Hire an interviewer for your business and get your work done:

  • They are experts in their field and know how to steer the interview to get the desired information about the candidate.
  • Interviews do not take place regularly and are conducted at specific junctures only. Since a Freelance Interviewer works and gets compensated on an ad hoc basis, it can be more economical for any organization.
  • As they are external to the organization, their work is free from any bias or prejudice.
