Structured Interview Toolkit


Selecting employees who possess the competencies required in your workplace is no easy task.  The Structured Interview Toolkit is a practical guide for conducting employee selection interviews.  It also includes interview questions for Direct Support Professionals and Program Coordinators.


Research has consistently shown that unstructured interviews have little value in predicting job performance.  The use of structured interviews significantly increases your chance of hiring competent employees, which in turn leads to a reduction of costs associated with re-hiring and re-training new staff.


The Structured Interview Toolkit presents practical information and tips regarding:

  • What a structured interview is and the reasons for using one;
  • The best time and setting for conducting a structured interview;
  • How to encourage realistic job expectations;
  • Who should be involved in conducting the structured interview;
  • What you need to know to conduct a legal interview;
  • What interviews bias is and how it can be minimized;
  • Opening and closing an interview;
  • The importance of conducting reference checks;
  • Volunteer placements for job candidates;
  • Decision making; and
  • The role of gut feelings.
