- The unfortunate reality is that a monkey, throwing darts at a list of candidates on the wall, would have a chance of finding the best performer on that list roughly equal to many of the selection methods commonly in use today. Chief among the culprits is the unstructured interview (for example: Tell me about yourself? What are your greatest weaknesses? Why did you pick your major? And so forth) which is among the most widely used forms of interviewing. While you have been interviewed in that way for all your jobs to date, you personally want to do better and conduct more useful interviews. So how should you go about increasing the effectiveness of your interviews? What are the major differences between unstructured and structured interviews? How should you frame your questions?
