How to Use the Interview Scorecards


The interview process is not only one of the most important stages of the section process but also one of the most challenging. One of the things recruiters try to fight is subjectivity and unconscious bias during the process. Using structured interviews and scorecards is a good way of ensuring that every candidate is evaluated according to the same criteria, allowing for a fairer recruitment process and also enabling better hiring decisions.

Interview scorecards allow standardising the evaluation of candidates in the interview process. Interviewers ask the same questions to all candidates and score their answers more consistently. It also promotes collaborative hiring within recruitment teams. All the recruiters can fill a scorecard for each candidate during an interview and afterwards they can compare rankings to identify the best fit for a role and make more unbiased decisions. Today we bring you a tutorial to show how easy it is to use skeeled’s interview scorecards.
