What is a panel interview?

The panel interview is defined as a group of people which interviews one person at a time. The panel of people could also interview a panel or group of people at the same time.

Is it different from a “regular” interview?

Because the interview is conducted by a group of people at the same time, it is very different from a “regular” interview.

Often not only might a group interview YOU but it might also interview a GROUP of candidates at the same time.

By doing this, they can judge how you react to pressure or how you handle the same question when you are the first one asked as well as when you are the last one asked. They are also looking for consistency in your answers by asking the same question in different ways.

The key when you are being interviewed by multiple people is to make eye contact with each one as you speak. Take time to weigh your responses but not too much time. Pay attention to the other candidates so you can carefully respond.

The Most Troublesome Question: What can you tell us about yourself?

This is the most important question because it gives you the opportunity to “sell” yourself.

HINT: Remember this question relates to your business self more than your private self. Grab some paper and answer. (The first time just write whatever comes to mind-use as much space as you need.)

Read it OUT LOUD if and analyze the content. KEY: Your answer should not exceed 1 to 2.0 minutes

Second time rewrite take time to edit your original document including these key areas:

Length of time in current position

Education

Your strengths

Your goals

Avoid using the word weakness-use the words “Areas of opportunity” instead.

Once you have written your response there is one more step: MEMORIZE IT! It should roll off your tongue like candy! It should not sound memorized but you shouldn't need a piece of paper to tell about yourself.

The Most Troublesome Answer: The biggest worry is when one of the other candidates responds the same way YOU were going to. What to do?

You should acknowledge that the answer from the other person was very good and along the lines of how you would have answered. Then add something viable to your response:

“I think Nancy hit it on the head with her response as to what qualities make a good leader. I’d like to add to that the fact that leaders not only need to lead – but they also need to follow. In other words, leaders realize they don’t know everything and must be able to see other points of view.”

This shows that you're paying attention, that you also have something to add and that you don’t become easily flustered.

The success of any interview situation is preparation. It’s like a TV commercial for YOU. Make sure you are ready for Prime Time!
