The stages of the interviewing process
Stage 1: an interview with the recruiter
This stage also includes the so-called preparatory stage of the interview. The recruiter studies the candidate’s resume, makes the list of skills required for the position, and composes the TOP questions for the candidate while preparing the interview questions.
At this stage, the range of the questions is usually more or less the same, regardless of the candidate's potential role in the company.
The recruiter's goal at Stage 1 is to evaluate the candidate not as an IT specialist, but as an employee in general, as a team player.
