The interview process is the gateway to basically fill a position from a company. The function of an interview is to assess candidate’s skills to pertinent questions that are necessary to fill in the needs of an organization.

Both scales would be scaled from 1 to 5 in which 1 would be the lowest attainable score and 5 would be the highest. This then would make up a perfect score of 100 points as confidence would make up a total perfect score of 50 points for ten the questions and also the same with satisfaction. In the end of each question there would be a space provide to write any important notes on why or why not they are the best candidate for the position.
