How to conduct a successful interview with your potential helper

Be prepared before conducting an interview and make sure you are well-prepared. Review the potential helper's bio-data/profile, and make a list of questions you want to ask. Think about the skills and qualities you are looking for in a helper, and consider what type of experience and qualifications you would like them to have.

  1. Create a comfortable environment: It is important to create a comfortable environment for your potential helper during the interview. Choose a quiet and private location to conduct the interview, and make sure there are no distractions.

  2. Ask Open-Ended Questions: Ask open-ended questions that allow the potential helper to speak freely about their experiences, skills, and qualifications. Avoid yes/no questions as they may not provide enough information. Examples of open-ended questions include:

  • Why do you want to work as a helper in Singapore?

  • What do you think are the most important qualities for a domestic helper?

  • How do you handle difficult situations or conflicts with your employers?

  1. Observe Their Non-Verbal Communication: Pay attention to the potential helper's non-verbal communication, such as their body language and tone of voice. These can provide valuable insights into their personality, communication style, and level of confidence.

  2. Discuss Expectations and Job Responsibilities Be clear about your expectations and job responsibilities, and discuss them with the potential helper during the interview. This includes discussing their work schedule, duties, and any other requirements you have. This will help ensure that there is a mutual understanding of what is expected of them.

  3. Check for Compatibility It is important to check for compatibility between you and the potential helper during the interview. Ask about their experience working with families with similar needs to yours, and their approach to communication and problem-solving. This will help you assess whether they are a good fit for your family.

Conducting a good interview with your potential helper is essential to finding the right person for your family's needs. By following these tips, you can help ensure that the interview process is successful and that you find a reliable and trustworthy helper.
