As far as possible, questions asked should be open ended ones which encourage the interviewee to give a detailed reply. Also the interviewer should keep the interviewee’s other interests/hobbies in perspective and ask relevant question to arrive at a balanced decision. The body language of the applicant should be observed as they can be helpful in providing clues about the interviewee.

Lastly the interviewer should encourage the applicant to ask questions about the company, the work culture etc. All these points are a great help when it comes to choosing an appropriate applicant for the job.
