This consists of two columns, with the obvious headings strengths and weaknesses. This will be used by the interviewer (s), to judge the candidates strong points and weak points. Any tests used during the interview The purpose of tests during the interview is so that Jaguar can find out additional knowledge about the applicant which they did not know before. It also gives Jaguar a indication on how fast the applicant can "think on their feet". As stated in the title, this is done during the interview Short listing Procedures The purpose of short listing is that Jaguar can identify those candidates who, on the basis of information available so far, best meet the relevant selection criteria for the post, and are therefore worthy of further consideration. Jaguar would do this, as soon as they receive the application form and judge candidates on that. Interview Questions The purpose of interview questions is to find out more information from the candidate which will help Jaguar decide whether or whether not the candidate is appropriate for the job. Some questions may be about the applicants responses on their application form and some questions are created before the interview. These questions will obviously asked by the interviewer(s) in the interview. Interview style The purpose of the interview style is to bring the best out of the candidate, this is done by creating a calm atmosphere, so that the candidate's confidence can rise, therefore not feeling nervous. This is done during the interview. Final Procedure Selection The purpose of the final procedure selection, is to ensure that the right person is chosen for the job, and make sure there are no doubts. This also gives Jaguar to change their mind if they feel it is necessary. This is done after the interviews are finished. ?? ?? ?? ?? Parag Mehta Unit 2 Task 5A 3118 ...read more.
