Sample Job Interview Score Sheet
One of the good tips for conducting job interviews, regardless of the nature or type of job interview, is to use a score sheet that allows the interviewer to make a structured and formal assessment of the candidate’s skills and competencies during the interview process.

The sample job interview score sheet is self-explanatory. It's divided into three sections: general questions, specific questions, and compatibility questions.
General questions contain 12 of the most common generic questions that most interviewers ask, regardless of the type of interview.
Specific questions are technical questions and depend on the skills required for the post. The sample scoring sheet has provisions for ten such technical questions. Fill up the same depending on the nature of the job. For example, if the interview is for a marketing position, sample questions could be “What is a marketing mix" “Give one example of a marketing campaign that has attracted eyeballs in recent times," and the like.
Compatibility questions are questions related to pay, work timings, and other factors. All other factors being equal, such factors can make or mar a candidate’s chances. For instance, an excellent candidate might still not get the job if salary expectations remain way beyond the company’s ability to pay. The sample questionnaire lists three general compatibility questions. Add more, as required, depending on the nature of the job.
