Interviewing is broken

Common interviewing methods ("So tell me about yourself...") are worse than random at selecting top performers.

Traditional interviewing is worse than random at selecting top performers. One of the most consistent findings in the history of HR research is that structured interviews (i.e. using skill-based questions) are much more reliable and valid than unstructured interviews. Translation: you will consistently make better hires if you use structured interviews.

The key to structured interviewing is asking all candidates the same skills-based questions that are actually relevant to the role. Peoplism’s Interviewbot makes that super easy to do. In a few clicks you can:

  • Select the skills that actually matter for the specific job you’re hiring for.
  • Select interview questions that measure those skills.

Dr. Liz Kofman-Burns, Peoplism’s co-founder, sociologist, and interview question connoisseur has been collecting great interview questions the way other people collect fine wines: obsessively, over many years.

Interviewbot helps you select from over 300 questions for over 100 skills. But it’s not really about quantity when it comes to interview questions—it’s about quality. Every question we’ve included has been selected because we believe it’s effective, and one we would ask in our own rigorous hiring process.

Nope. Google-y brain-teasers (“How many tennis balls fit into the Empire State building?”) are useless, even according to Google.
