Employment of experienced personnel (mid-career recruitment)

When hiring experienced people, work history and interviews are emphasized.Written exams are relatively rare (some companies do).This is because companies require experienced people to carry out their duties immediately after joining the company, and to actually carry out specific tasks within the deadline and contribute to the profits and profits of the company (for example).

Criticism of the interview test

Shinichi Ichikawa(Cognitive psychologyPerson,Educational psychologyWho)Hideki Wada(Psychiatrist)[2]Tokyo UniversityHe has made clear his belief that he is not in favor of introducing a science class III interview test.The reason is, "I don't think it's possible to spot people that much in a short interview," he said. "For interview preparation, the school gives you something like" knowledge of the interview "once or twice. I think it's enough to practice. "It has said.

In response, Hideki Wada called the statement "I want to take only the people I want to teach" at the time of the introduction of the interview test as "creepy confidence", and said, "I'm looking at such a person, so I'm going to have an extra interview. It makes me feel distrustful. "" From the perspective of us psychiatrists, when we see that we are so confident in character evaluation, the choice is ratherparanoiaSo I worry about it. "

In response to Wada's remark, Ichikawa said, "社会 心理学"Most people think that they have an eye to see people," he said, "a story related to the content of the story." For example, you can guess with high accuracy what kind of person you are and what kind of person you will be. " "The accuracy of the interview test is questioned.

As a summary of those dialogues, Wada said that "company entrance examination interviews, etc." would be the same, but "although it is currently collapsing,lifetime employmentIt's a pity that there are many people in Japan who are so sacrificed for incomplete interviews and have their chances cut off. He criticized the current interview-oriented recruitment examination.

Not only those who wish to have an interview should be careful about what they say and do, but companies must also be careful about what they say and do.Interviewers often behave rudely on the premise that they have already decided not to hire the interviewee (speaking about their appearance, unilaterally without talking about their profession). Tell the interviewee that you are not hiring, or ask the interviewee "What is your motive?" But do not show any attitude to listen.)Keep in mind that the person who wants to be interviewed is the "customer" if you haven't hired them yet.If you behave too rudely during the interview, the interviewee will feel uncomfortable and it will spread in a short period of time (even if you say that you behaved rudely at the time of the interview at first, you will gradually say, "The company over there. It becomes a simple word, "the correspondence is bad", and it leads to the deterioration of the reputation and trust of the company before you know it).

Yasuhiro HattoriAccording to the report, the selection by interview is not scientifically valid.[3].

Companies that abolish interviews

As mentioned above, there are some skeptical opinions about interviews. In recent years, more and more companies are discontinuing interviews because of reasons such as “inefficiency” and “overlooking the people they seek”.

Interview survey

Unlike the test, the interview survey does not decide whether or not to accept the test, but is conducted to collect various information through the individual.So-called "street questionnaires" and "citizen's voices" are familiar examples, but in interview surveys, there are cases where randomly selected persons and those who are selected in advance, but both vary through the interviewee. The purpose is to collect data on various events.

This data isstatisticsIn many cases, standard questions are set in advance so that it is easy to handle with a specific method, but for example, if a certain direction is indicated for a predetermined question, the next question is prepared in that direction. In some cases, a forked question is prepared.In addition, questions that require details may be encouraged to explain in more detail what the other person thinks through dialogue.However, depending on how the question is asked, the answer of the respondent may be guided to the questioner, so it is necessary to carefully consider the content of the question in advance.
