Unstructured Job Interview


Definition: An unstructured interview is a job interview in which questions may be changed based on the interviewee's responses.

While the interviewer may have a few set questions prepared in advance, the direction of the interview is rather casual, and questions flow is based on the direction of the conversation.

Unstructured interviews are often seen as less intimidating than formal interviews. However, because each interviewee is asked different questions, this method is not always reliable.
