Overview

Credit: 4 PDH

Length: 34 pages

For many people, making a successful hiring selection is a lot like describing their taste in art: "I'm not sure how to describe it but I'll know it when I see it!"

Think back to the last time you interviewed an applicant. If you are like many others without interview training, you may have found yourself doing more talking than listening rather than learning about his or her strengths and weaknesses. Perhaps the interview got off track and you found it difficult to get back into focus. In addition, if someone had asked for your opinion of the applicant at the end of it, would you have been able to refer to specific comments or just your overall impression?

And, as for the person you finally selected, you probably based your decision more on instinct than specific information. Also, if you were asked why you didn't select someone else, would you have been able to defend your choice objectively so as not to show discrimination?

If you're disappointed with the results of this kind of hit-or-miss approach to interviewing applicants, then it's time to approach it with a more systematic and objective method. This course will help you.
