I was going through some interviews for my company not to long ago and I came to an interesting realization: I'm a recruitment ninja. I'm interviewing candidates for various positions and sometimes you can have great interviews and you have to pick one to carry forward with the hiring process with. You interview five people and they are all rockstars and you really have to get down to the facts and pick the best candidate for the company; this is in an ideal world and we know it doesn't always work like this.
There are times when you know right away that this individual is not the person you're looking for to work in your company. In this situation, I turn the interview into something different. I could end the interview right away and save time and move onto the next interview; instead, I continue on with the interview and I ask them a lot of questions about the processes, procedures and programs that individual used in their previous employment.
I take the opportunity to learn something new from others experiences. I'm not suggesting that you're going to get something tangible from every interview; you are going to have some bad interviews. However, if you get into an interesting topic, learn from the candidate because they might have been using a program that you've never used before. I guess you could also refer to this technique as Recruitment Espionage.
Another thing you could do in an interview is promote your company to the candidate. They would turn into your billboard. Sure, they would get really down because you were up selling your company and turning it into something that the candidate desires in a work place and then not hire them, but people talk to other people and those other people may be a better fit for the company. Think about it... Recruitment ninja.
