When interviewing, be conscious of how you feel. Make sure you record how comfortable you feel with each candidate when you are interviewing several people with similar backgrounds. Take notes once you conclude an interview session. Why did you feel comfortable or uncomfortable with this candidate? Who do you think will best respond to your direction? Who will be the most productive? Which candidate exhibits the most enthusiasm and interest in you and your organization?
