IT Job Interview Types

If you have been to multiple job interviews, then you realize how companies’ environment varies from one another. This is pretty common because every company has its own culture. And more importantly, each company implements its own interviewing strategy.

You can never really tell what kind of interview you are going to walk into. Let's take a brief look at different interview types.

The Screening Interview

Oftentimes, when you apply for a job, the company will look at your resume and cover letter as a kind of filtering process to determine if you are generally qualified for the job. Sometimes a company performs a selection interview. In this interview a representative will ask questions to determine their interest in work and basic skills.

Structured Interview

Another interview type that is quite common is the structured interview. In this type of interview, the interviewer will ask specific, predetermined questions meant to explore your experience, skills and personality traits. The goal of this type of interview is to find the ideal candidate. Very often, this interview is the determining factor in whether you will be hired for a position or not.

Stress Interview

This type of interview is the least implemented. During this interview, the interviewer will try to intentionally upset you to see how you might react under pressure. You might be asked questions designed to make you feel uncomfortable. Or the interviewer may interrupt you while you're speaking.

Group Interview

The group interview is pretty much just what you think it is. It is a number of representatives from the company opting to interview you at the same time. Each member of the group is designated a style of questions to ask (ex. stress). However, there are times when the interviewers may be allowed to start a sort of "free for all" as long as they don't step on the toes of other interviewers.

Multiple Interviews

If you have been moving up the corporate ladder over the past few years then you may have noticed that you first started with structured interviews only. However, as you're moving higher up the chain, you may be participating in multiple interviews.

Multiple interviews are usually a combination of several types of interviews you're already familiar with. For instance, you may first undergo a screening interview so they can determine whether you're qualified to move on to the next step. Then you may attend a group interview where multiple representatives will have an opportunity to determine your qualifications. Finally, you might go to an informal interview - possibly at a lunch - where you meet with one or more interviewers to talk casually about the job.
