Successfully recruiting incoming talent is a challenge for senior management, leaders, and human resource professionals during both difficult and thriving economic times. When unemployment is high, displaced workers compete for jobs alongside recent graduates and retirees returning to the workforce. When unemployment is low, finding the most highly qualified and best fit for vacant positions is equally difficult.
It’s one thing for a candidate to look good on paper. Qualifications, skills, and knowledge are definitely important; however, the ability to relate to others, establish rapport, and demonstrate a positive attitude can only be determined in an interview. And remember, the interview is a two-way street. How you come across as an interviewer reflects on your organization. Getting to the heart of the applicant’s abilities and developing a wider appreciation for the applicant’s interpersonal skills is the goal of the interview. In this module, you will learn interviewing skills that will help you avoid costly mistakes. You will first look at the interview format best suited to narrow the field for vacant positions. Then you will review best practices for conducting applicant interviews and develop interview questions designed to probe for both experience and behaviors.
At the completion of this module, participants will be able to:
• Determine the best interview format to use for talent selection • Apply effective interviewing tips and techniques • Develop interview questions that successfully identify
