1- Filtration interview (Individual):

Which is the first step to the second interview, and we use it to determine who are qualified to go throw the behavioral or technical interview.Fourth: Types of interview (10):

2- Structured interview (Individual):

Here, every single detail of the interview is decided in advance, The questions to be asked, the order in which the questions will be asked, the time given to each candidate, the information to be collected from each candidate, etc. is all decided in advance, Structured interviews are preplanned.

3- Unstructured interview (Individual):

This interview is not planned in detail, The question to be asked, the information to be collected from the candidates, etc. are not decided in advance, These interviews are non-planned and therefore, more flexible. Candidates are more relaxed in such interviews.

4- A discussion meeting Interview:

Here, all the candidates or small groups of candidates are interviewed together, A group interview is similar to a group discussion. A topic is given to the group, and they are asked to discuss it. The interviewer carefully watches the candidates. He tries to find out which candidate influences others, who speaks effectively, etc. He tries to judge the behavior of each candidate in a group situation.

5- Exit interview (Individual):

When an employee leaves the company, he is interviewed either by the HR manager, This interview is called an exit interview, Exit interview is taken to find out why the employee is leaving the company, to create a favorable work environment, to create employee loyalty and to reduce employees turnover.

6- Informal interview (Individual or not):

Informal interview is an oral interview which can be arranged at any place, Different questions are asked to collect the required information from the candidate, It is a friendly interview.

7- Panel interview (one interviewed by a group):

Panel means a selection committee or interview committee that is appointed for interviewing the candidates. The panel may include three or five members. They ask questions to the candidates, They give marks to each candidate. The final decision will be taken by all members collectively by rating the candidates, Panel interview is always better than an interview by one interviewer because in a panel interview, collective judgement is used for selecting suitable candidates.

8- Group interview (A group interviewing a Group):

is interviewing a group of applicants by an interview committee, which is the hardest style of interviews, coz it doesnt make you judge each one of them as you should be.

9- Interviewing in a public place:

Employers sometimes schedule job interviews in a public place, like a coffee shop or restaurant, especially if you don't want your current employees to know that you're hiring.

10- Tag team interview:

Expecting to meet with Ms.Gehan, you might find yourself in a room with four other people: Ms. Gehan, two of her staff, and the Sales Director, Companies often want to gain the insights of various people when interviewing candidates.
