Panel Interview

This kind of interview is conducted by an interviewing panel (comprising more than one interviewer), which is made up of the senior executive and some members of the team. The interview panel can also consist of top level CEOs although this depends the kind of position you are applying for.

The panel interview is stressful and this is why organisations use it: to see the candidate's reaction to stress. You will be asked questions from all the panel members, sometimes the same question by different panel members. It is difficult to build the kind of connection with the interview panel as you can in a one on one interview.

You can buy time by asking questions. You should always remain calm and composed during a panel interview. Take a breath and even count to five (in your head), if you see the situation getting out of hand.
