I work for a company where there are regular job walk-ins or scheduled face-to-face interviews. A few relevant technical staff would be selected to be interviewers and they would be part of the panel. The vacancy need not be for their own project but could be for any team/project in the entire company.
In the next few days, a few of my sub-ordinates would be part of such panel. Most of them are pretty excited about being at the other end. Though the HR person has given a few basic instructions, I want to add a few more.
From my past experiences as an interviewee, I have made a few observations as to how an interviewer should not be, esp when it is merely a technical round. For e.g., not getting into personal details, not making fun of them if they cannot answer a basic or a tough question, not coming across as condescending etc. In short, if I were a part of the panel myself, I would do none of the above. I keep it point to point. I want to convey the same to my sub-ordinates. I do not want to make it a boring lecture, but want to keep it succinct.
While doing so, will I be doing something that my role doesn't ask for? Will this be taken as an unsolicited advice? Or should I let my subordinates go with their own flow? I am into a senior role managing the technical aspects of my project.
