Hiring the right people Step 5: How to Run the Perfect Live Interview
Play • 15 min

In this episode of SYS Hiring the Right People, Steve talks about how you can run the ultimate live interview. By this point you have had your candidates go through multiple checks and you are fairly certain they have the right skills, attitude and experience to work with you, but it’s still key that you do a live interview otherwise you risk wasting both time, effort and money on-boarding someone who might not be right.




  •  Giving half an hour of your time at this point might save you hours of wasted time further down the line if you get this wrong.
  • You will have your own set of questions you will want to ask but it’s worth thinking about asking the candidate where they would like to be in 5 years. This question reveals if they have ambition, what kind of commitment level they have to your business as well as giving you a broader idea of what their future goals are.




“Doing a live interview is something you miss at your peril”

“Live video is very telling”

“You’d be surprised of some of the answers that actually come out when you start asking people”

He switched to running his businesses remotely and after totally nailing this concept he decided to spend his time helping other small business owners do the same. Steve’s been investing in property since 2002, has a degree in Computing, and worked as a doctor in the NHS before quitting to focus full-time on sharing his systems and outsourcing Methodology with the world. He now lives in Sweden and runs his UK-based businesses remotely with the help of his team of Filipino and UK-based Virtual Assistants.
