Why Should You Attend:

Some of the key areas that will be addressed in this presentation include:

  • As interviewers, what can we do to get past applicant's canned answers?
  • Are applicants really answering our questions, or just telling us what we want to hear?
  • How do we manage first impressions and steer away from hiring based on a gut feeling?

This webinar will answer these questions and more by discussing a structured process used in behavior-based interviewing. This approach involves asking questions about the applicant’s past behaviour in situations similar to those that are faced in the job to be filled. Carefully worded follow-up questions can be used to clarify a candidate’s answers. Questions designed in this manner are more difficult for an applicant to anticipate, and are, consequently, more truthful answered as well. In short, interviewers are more likely to make better decisions by employing these techniques.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Why is interviewing important
  • Why new hires fail
  • Employment laws that affect interviewing
  • Developing questions that are open-ended, legal and behavior-based
  • Reference checking
  • Use of assessments in the hiring process

Who Will Benefit:

  • HR managers
  • Recruiters and staff involved in interviewing applicants
  • Business owners and managers
  • HR consultants who advise clients on interviewing strategies
