Unstructured interviews can be more difficult as there can be a combination of planned and unplanned questions which can vary between candidates. This variation can create a lack of precision and dependability between different candidate’s responses as they could be asked different questions and therefore their answers may not be easily comparable.
In Unstructured Interviews the questions are used to gauge the candidate’s understanding and capabilities. Questions can also be altered depending on the candidate’s response.
While this style of interview allows the interviewer to get more clarity about the candidate and dig deeper into their responses, the candidate can feel more at ease as this style can lean more towards being more informal and the candidate can explain their responses in greater detail.
