    Re: Advantages and Disadvantages of Structured Interview and Unstructured Interview? What is the procedure and general norm to conduct structured interview and unstructured interview?

    Hello,

    It is one of the good question. i will give best solution to you. actually in all the interviews they will follow same style for any interview.it varies based on interviewer. In structured interview, interviewer will ask question orderly as per your academics or resume. in here first they will start with your self introduction. later they will know about your family background. they will come to your academic performance, if any up and downs then they will ask you reason behind that. next they will check if any certificates that you did already.

    later they will pose some of the technical question non stop. here they will check how accurately your answering.if you are don't know the question don't wait untill interviewer asks you, simply say sorry sir, i don't know.don't silently if you don't know the answer and don't give wrong answers.

    unstructured interview will be done without any order, it is purely based on interviewer mind set and first impression on you. in some situations they wont ask any technical questions, even though they will select you. it is the impression which comes in the minds of interviewer on your answers and your behavior.

    GOOD LUCK....

    Re: Advantages and Disadvantages of Structured Interview and Unstructured Interview? What is the procedure and general norm to conduct structured interview and unstructured interview?

    hello dear friends....

    A structured interview is sometimes called a pattern interview.
    There are two possible ways to carry out the structured interview:
    1. Asking a set of questions of each and every candidate in a one-on-one interview.
    2. Having each and every candidate fill out a questionnaire form.
    If you are a candidate, be cognizant of the fact that these questions are prepared in advance and will be asked, or have already been asked, of other candidates so that the answers may be compared.Advantages
    When it comes to evaluating the advantages of structured interviews as compared to unstructured ones, the main advantage is that all the applicants have an equal opportunity to prove that they have the required skills and experience for the job.
    Additionally, as an initial selection process, the structured interview questions are basically set up in a manner which allows the interviewer to obtain all the initial data as well as professional details that he or she would want to know about every applicant.

    Disadvantages
    The disadvantages of structured interviews are that the company has to interview a sufficient number of applicants in order to begin the comparison – it is time consuming and requires designing questions and intensive resources.Secondly, the structured interview is basically data-collection; as such it lacks the feasibility to assess the candidate’s communication skills.

    [h=3]Advantages of using an Unstructured Interview[/h]· If the respondent lacks reading skills to answer a questionnaire.

    · Are useful for untangling complex topics.
    · The Interviewer can probe deeper into a response given by an interviewee.
    · Interviews produce a higher response rate.

    [h=3]Disadvantages of using an Unstructured Interview[/h]· The interviewer can affect the data if he/she is not consistent.
    · It is very time consuming.
    · It is not used for a large number of people.
    · The Interviewer may be biased and ask closed questions.



    There are 8 key steps in developing a structured interview.

    1. Conduct a Job Analysis
    2. Determine the Competencies to be Assessed by the Interview
    3. Choose the Interview Format and Develop Questions
    4. Develop Rating Scales to Evaluate Candidates
    5. Create Interview Probes
    6. Pilot-Test the Interview Questions
    7. Create the Interviewer’s Guide
    8. Document the Development Process

    Advantages and Disadvantages of Structured Interview and Unstructured Interview:-



    Your background as to what your current qualification is, it is difficult to guide the best stream. Normally females have a problem in office hours of the companies. Most of the them need to have more of 9am -6pm job. It is difficult for them to stretch. So they tend to take up Human Resource. If you are from a commerce background then Finance is a good stream. You can join the banking stream, trading, insurance company etc. If you are from the IT stream then IT option is also there.
