Understanding the Interview Process: Types and Formats

July 8, 2014

Hiring is a high-risk activity for employers — they only have a resume, the interview and references to base their decision on. The interview is often the only chance an employer will have to get to know the candidate before making a hiring decision, so they want to learn as much as they can about what kind of a person the candidate is, how well they will perform on the job, how well they match the work environment, and what they can contribute. 

Take a look at this short mock interview to better understand the pace, tone and questions involved in an interview with a Canadian employer.
