Business Interviews Business interview is a formal scheduled meeting by an employer or an interviewer to assess an individual or an interviewee on the grounds to really know if they could both run a business together. This is what I considered the simplest definition and as it is, many of us are going through it almost on a daily basis. Interviews on business issues could be between buyer and seller, employer and employee, creditors and directors and even most times between managers and wholesalers in the market. It is always aimed at getting vital information that needs proper management for the healthy running of the business. There are several ways we see things but most times we missed them, for some people it’s a very big deal to do a manager to a ‘MERE’ seller interview as most people call it but the truth is that in many businesses only the manager or the director with his experience knows what he wants for the smooth movement of the business, there is nothing wrong with him doing a one on one interview with any lowly rated individual as long as that is where the answers to his questions lies. This modern day, many huge and multi national organizations buy the services of recruiting firms to usher in new productive and qualified workers into their business for them but this exercise still hasn’t solved the aging challenges of staff inefficiency and effectiveness. This is a clear indication to that fact that says ‘seeing is believing’. If you are one of the many employees who give all in the hands of recruiting firms, you might be leaving out the golden hands off your reputable organization as this will keep you spending-on till you finally employ the good hands for that job because advertising alone is an expense. For every one who could afford the services of a recruiting agent, you should be capable of getting one of your best hands to the interview venues for assessment at least for credibility sake. There is nothing wrong in hiring the recruiters but you have to keep your eyes on them, corruption is every where and it is just like checking the handiwork of your accountant and internal auditor by dragging an external or independent auditor into your accounting affairs. Stay alert always because you never know where weakness on your business could emanate from, you need to keep your business healthy. A marketing manager once told me that if not for his ‘leaving the office to the field (approach)’ to assess the performances of his subordinates, he wouldn’t have known that his worker are not doing enough on follow up and that they have been diverting the communication funds given by the company to always track customers to personal purse for their own benefits. He corrected this and even changed some personnel, this quickly reflected in their business health, he told me. Get it right, division of labor is very fantastic for proper running of task but proper supervision must not be absent in putting things in place. If you want the best for your business always get to the root of every issues that is impending or marring the growth and progress of your company, start conducting extra- ordinary meeting with those salient departments in your business, asking the departments head all that you need to know, stop believing they are professionals, we are all humans, they might not read every situations well, don’t forget that is the reason they are writing you reports, be practically minded on the job respect the paper works but build on the actions. Interview is all about assessment, don’t get it twisted do interview for your workers to know if you need to switch or swap them on different portfolios. It could only get better when your action as the inquisitor speaks better than voice or paper works, get going to the root to keep your business fit.
