Hiring for Success: Behavioural Interviewing Techniques (Short Course)
$35.00 Inc GST
Hiring for Success: Behavioral Interviewing Techniques will teach hiring managers to refine their interview skills and methods in order to ultimately choose the right candidate for the job.
Finding the right person for a company is an important factor in business growth, and it can be a very expensive undertaking. How do you separate the good from the great, when they have similar work experience and strengths to offer? This short, online course will help managers develop the necessary competencies to ask the appropriate questions, and thereby determine the fit of potential candidates.
Specific skill development includes: recognizing the costs incurred by an organization when a wrong hiring decision is made; developing a fair and consistent interviewing process for selecting employees; preparing better job advertisements and using a variety of markets; developing a job analysis and position profile; using traditional, behavioral, achievement oriented, holistic, and situational (critical incident) interview questions; effectively interviewing difficult applicants; and understanding basic employment and human rights laws that can affect the hiring process.
