✔A peer interview is, as its name suggests, an interview between a candidate and their future peers.
👉Instead of only meeting with a recruiter and the hiring manager, applicants get to speak with one or more current employees too. The goal is to better gauge how a candidate would fit the role, the team, and the organization.
🤸♀️Peer interviews are particularly popular in small companies and team-based organizations where a good (cultural) fit of the new hire is even more important for the success of the business.
🔔That doesn’t mean, however, that large organizations can’t benefit from adding peer interviews to their hiring process. Companies like Facebook, Google, and Gitlab for example are all keen users of this interview method.
