Use this checklist to help you prepare for the hiring and interview process for an open position in your organization.

  • Review federal, state and local laws related to employment and hiring practices.
  • Write the job description and decide on any other necessary details, such as salary range and
    hiring manager.
  • Decide who will conduct the screening interview and what basic qualifications must be met by
    candidates.
  • Choose what type of interview you will conduct (e.g., in the office, over the phone, at lunch).
  • Decide how structured your interview will be. Do you want to work through a list of questions, or
    are you comfortable with a more casual, conversational approach?
  • Write your interview questions. Decide if you will use one type (e.g., behavioral), or a mix of
    different types of questions.
  • Know what questions are illegal.
  • Establish a method of evaluation so you can fairly compare candidates.
