Does your interviewing process consist of proven practices or just a hodgepodge of activities that get into gear when someone says, “I need more people” or “Sally has left, and we need someone to take her place NOW?”


The effectiveness of your interviewing process impacts the effectiveness of the organization.  A new hire that does not fit the position will be difficult to develop, will perform poorly and more likely leave resulting in the need to repeat the process. Only when interviewing is approached as a specific methodology with definable steps and measurable results can it be managed to ensure the hiring of quality people.


Smart hiring is more than posting requisitions, screening, and talking with the candidates, checking references, making an offer, etc. It is a series of specific interviewing principles and techniques that can bring in top talent rather than lead to poor hires. The topics to be covered are:

·       Fine-tune Your Shopping List

·       Focus on Behavioral Interviewing

·       Develop Questions to Assess KSA’s

·       Use a Rating Scale & Guide


The focus of this webinar is to help companies maximize their hiring efforts as well as helps managers and recruiters enhance their interviewing effectiveness.


Session Highlight:

·       Develop a position profile – A multi-functional job description tool for recruitment and smart interviewing.

·       Create behavioral interview questions that go beyond the resume to assess a candidate’s capabilities and experience.

·       Produce an interviewing guide with key questions and tips to ensure hiring the right person for the position.

·       Ask the right questions to get applicants to speak openly while avoiding inappropriate and illegal questions.

·       Avoid the 5 top interviewing mistakes that hiring managers and recruiters make – even experienced ones.

·       Develop selection criteria and rating system to ensure your organization will not hire round pegs to fit into square holes.

·       Learn to avoid early judgments. First impressions can make an impression, but it can be the wrong impression
