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.

Click the menu icon on the top left of your screen. Click the expand icon beside Interview Guides in the main menu and choose Manage Guides.
Step 2. Click create

Step 4. Describe the guide
