Interview Tip #4: Get Cosy

All too many parents make the mistake of impulsively jumping straight into a long line of questions when they interview applicants. We recommend first taking a few minutes to relax, to boil a fresh pot of tea or coffee or to make idle chit chat with the potential candidate. This will assist both you and the candidate to relax and feel more comfortable, resulting in a smoother and often more open interview. Which in turn will give you more  of a sense of the candidates personality, and they may reveal more about themselves.
