A structured interview is, technically, one in which you’d ask the same set of questions, in the same order, and in the same interview process, for every candidate. This creates an even-playing field for all of your candidates, so you can fairly evaluate each of them on the same criteria. The problem with this approach is that each candidate is unique, and giving them all the same exact interview experience has the potential to hurt more than it helps. A real structured interview can feel robotic and cold—which probably isn’t the candidate experience you’re going for. Instead, aim for a more semi-structured interview.
