Interviewing

Architectural practices, like any professional and business enterprise, have a constant need of interviewing skills. The interview is a common instrument of communication, and a very valuable management tool. Poorly used, the interview can be a waste of the parties' time; worse, it may have serious consequences in terms of staff relations or even lead to complaints under Equal Opportunity legislation.

A selection interview should be prepared for in advance, conducted thoroughly and fairly, and followed up afterwards.
