Interview guides are documents used to conduct behavioural interviews that include three sections:
- Introduction: we offer a default document you can use or create your own.
- Body: competencies, proficiency levels, interview questions, probes, space for notes, rating scale, summary of scores, and a rating/recommendation page.
- Conclusion: there's no default document, but you can create your own.
