Some people believe that having interviews is the best way to find new employees for a company. Others say that there are better alternative ways to appoint employees. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.

While some
people
think that the best way to hire new
employees
for a
company
is an interview, others believe that there are some ways that are better. I will discuss both of these views and give my thoughts.
To begin
with, an interview has been used for many years when many companies want to find new
employees
. Some
people
think it is the best way possible.
Additionally
, it is
also
simple, does not take too much time, can be even less than an hour per candidate. Despite its simplicity, there are some drawbacks as well.
For instance
, many companies nowadays, especially in Thailand, just gather candidates’ information from their resumes. By
this
, some
people
can make up their profile to look good, so they can get hired by the
company
they want,
hence
a
company
may not get the best
employees
by only interviewing.
On the other hand
, some individuals argue that if employers want the best from their
employees
, there are better ways to do so and I agree. As far as I’m concerned, an interview might not be the best way to hire the right person for the job, some jobs may require more abilities than others,
such
as programming.
Instead
of interviewing, candidates should be given tasks to complete, which like what they have to do at the workplace, whoever can handle the task better will get the job.
This
might be one example, where the
company
should not rely only on traditional hiring methods. In conclusion, even though having interviews has been used to hire
employees
for decades and some
people
have been thinking that it is the most suitable for every job hiring process, there are other ways that might be better for some jobs as well. Executing a given task,
for example
, is one thing that can be done.
