  Following the Interview Process  
 
Although things will differ between companies, every company has its own interview process. Before you begin interviewing with a company, you should attempt to familiarize yourself with that process. Some companies allow their Human Resources Department to handle the entire hiring process but in most companies Human Resources does nothing more than the initial interview and presents what it considers qualified applicants to the supervisor and/or department manager who make the final decision. Never go into an interview thinking you will be hired on the spot—that was very common in the past but it is very rare today unless it is a small company in desperate need of help.

Before you are hired by a company, you will usually undergo at least two interviews—one at the Human Resources level and one by someone within the department where you will work if you are hired. In some cases, this may happen in the same day. If Human Resources feels you meet the qualifications the department needs, they may escort you to the department or call the department manager to meet with you while you are already there. For this reason, you want to allow plenty of time if you are scheduling more than one interview in one day. Do not assume that you will be finished with an interview in an hour or so because that is not necessarily true. You have to allow for additional time in case you do have the opportunity to interview with the department manager or supervisor.

Depending on the type of job for which you are applying, you may also have to undergo skills testing. For office positions, this may entail a general skills test, typing test and if the position involves accounting or bookkeeping, you may undergo testing for that as well. Most employers will tell you if testing will be part of the interview process but it never hurts to ask so that you can plan your time accordingly. The worst mistake you can make is to assume every interview is going to be an in and out process—always plan for at least two hours not including travel time, so it is best not to plan more than two interviews in one day unless you know with certainty that you will only spend an hour on each interview. Sometimes you will know this when you make the appointment, and you can sometimes tell if you are given specific times from which to choose how long it will take.
