Case interview A case interview is an interview form used mostly by management consulting firms and investment banks in which the job applicant is given a question, situation, problem or challenge and asked to resolve the situation.
The case problem is often a business situation or a business case that the interviewer has worked on in real life.
In recent years, company in other sectors like Design, Architecture, Marketing, Advertising, Finance and Strategy have adopted a similar approach to interviewing candidates. Technology has transformed the Case-based and Technical interview process from a purely private in-person experience to an online exchange of job skills and endorsements.
Panel[ edit ] Another type of job interview found throughout the professional and academic ranks is the panel interview. In this type of interview the candidate is interviewed by a group of panelists representing the various stakeholders in the hiring process.
Within this format there are several approaches to conducting the interview. Example formats include; Presentation format — The candidate is given a generic topic and asked to make a presentation to the panel.
Often used in academic or sales-related interviews. Role format — Each panelist is tasked with asking questions related to a specific role of the position. For example, one panelist may ask technical questions, another may ask management questions, another may ask customer service related questions etc.
Skeet shoot format — The candidate is given questions from a series of panelists in rapid succession to test his or her ability to handle stress filled situations.
The benefits of the panel approach to interviewing include: This type of interview can be used for selection, promotion, or assessment of team skills. Interviewers may also use a group interview to assess an applicant's stress management skills or assertiveness because in such a group setting the applicant will be surrounded by other applicants who also want to get the job.
Group interviews can be less costly than one-on-one or panel interviews, especially when many applicants need to be interviewed in a short amount of time.
In addition, because fewer interviewers are needed, fewer interviewers need to be trained. In group interviews the interviewer has to multitask more than when interviewing one applicant at a time. Interviewers in one-on-one interviews are already busy doing many things.
These include attending to what applicants are saying and how they are acting, taking notes, rating applicant responses to questions, and managing what they say and how they act.
Interviewing more than one applicant at a time makes it more challenging for the interviewer. This can give applicants questioned later in the interview an advantage over the earlier-questioned applicants.
These problems can make it less likely for group interviews to accurately predict who will perform well on the job.
They also found that group interviews were not as effective as one-on-one interviews. Further research needs to be conducted to more extensively evaluate the group interview's usefulness for various purposes.
This research needs to be done across various domains outside of the education sector. Research also needs to clarify conflicting findings by determining in which situations study results can be applied. Stress[ edit ] Stress interviews are still in common use.
The ostensible purpose of this interview: Stress interviews might involve testing an applicant's behavior in a busy environment. Questions about handling work overload, dealing with multiple projects, and handling conflict are typical. For example, the interviewer may not make eye contact, may roll his eyes or sigh at the candidate's answers, interrupt, turn his back, take phone calls during the interview, or ask questions in a demeaning or challenging style.
The goal is to assess how the interviewee handles pressure or to purposely evoke emotional responses. This technique was also used in research protocols studying stress and type A coronary-prone behavior because it would evoke hostility and even changes in blood pressure and heart rate in study subjects.
The key to success for the candidate is to de-personalize the process. The interviewer is acting a role, deliberately and calculatedly trying to "rattle the cage". Once the candidate realizes that there is nothing personal behind the interviewer's approach, it is easier to handle the questions with aplomb.
Example stress interview questions: Start again — tell me what really makes you tick. One stress technique is to tell the applicant that they have 20 minutes to prepare a presentation, and then come back to room five minutes later and demand that the presentation be given immediately.
The "Platform Test" method involves having the candidate make a presentation to both the selection panel and other candidates for the same job. This is obviously highly stressful and is therefore useful as a predictor of how the candidate will perform under similar circumstances on the job.
Selection processes in academic, training, airline, legal and teaching circles frequently involve presentations of this sort.Week 1 DQ 1 The opening line of part 1 of the text reads, “Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the world”.
