Interviewing Interviews are a critical part of the hiring process for both employers and candidates. As a candidate, you are able to obtain information about the job and the organization, determine whether the fit is good for you, and impress the employer. The interviewer can promote his or her organization, gather information about you, and assess your qualifications.
