This candidate could be the most suitable but may just be nervous so it is in the employer?s best interest to make sure all candidates are at ease . The employer must always give the candidate time to think and do not rush them , although if they start to digress the employer needs to bring the employee back to the relevant point . The employer needs to explain the next stage of recruitment process to make sure the candidate understands what is going on . The employer finally needs to ask them if they have any final questions and thank them for their time and interest in the role .
