Panel Interviews

Panel Interviews

16 January 2019 by Justin Rush

Panel Interviews:

This style of interview is conducted by a group of interviewers. The panel will prepare a set of questions that will be asked to each candidate.

Usually, in panel interviews, the panel members will take it in turns in asking the questions. On occasion, the panel may also ask some on the spot questions depending on how the candidate responds.

Tips for panel-based interviews:

  • Try to engage with all the interviewers
  • Be prepared for fast-paced questions, cross-talk from interviewers, follow-up questions
  • Think of the process as more of a conversation rather than a Q&A

Key features

Due to there being more than one interviewer, there is more accuracy and clarity with this process. As most of the questions are the same, conducting this style of interview allows the interviewer to hear a range of different perspectives on the same topic. Due to this reason, it makes it easier to compare the candidates and finding the right candidate is faster.
