I came across this website. They have some really good tips and guidelines for interviewing. Check it out: http://www.hrworld.com/features/interviewing-cheat-sheet-092507/
Preparation is the most important thing when interviewing. DON'T try to "wing it." You will look foolish. Plan what questions you are going to ask and ask all candidates the same questions. I recommend having your questions written/typed out. You will appear professional and prepared. This is true for both the interviewers and the interviewees.

In my opinion, interviewing takes on two major themes. First, there is obvious need to understand the candidate's experiences and qualifications to do the job. The second is conversational. Can the candidate communicate and talk thru the job responsibilities in a way that demonstrates and ability to handle the specific requirements of actual job related activity. Simply reviewing credentials is not enough, but discuss in the context of real job related issues.
