Widely adopted in organizations, panel interviews give the candidate a chance to interact with representatives from the top management heading different departments, and all at the same time. The interviewee needs to remember that he needs to address everyone in the panel and maintain eye-contact with everyone while answering anyone of the panel’s question, as they all are a team.
