此次培训的一个重点是使用一种基于行为的面试策略。 这种面试策略建立在一个前提之下:类似情况下,过去的行为将成为未来表现的最佳预测标准。 通过使用这种策略,您的招聘过程将变得更加客观,而不再一定需要聘请一位专业的面试官。

This workshop is a highly interactive course where you will learn skills to increase your confidence, professionalism and effectiveness during the interview process. 

During the course we explore a number of key interviewing skills, including how to plan for an interview, and how to effectively ask questions to achieve betters results in a shorter time frame.

A key component of the workshop is using behavioral based interviewing strategies. This structured interviewing approach is built on the premise that in similar situations, past behavior is the best predictor of future performance. By using this strategy, your hiring process becomes more objective, relying less on hiring an individual that is well liked or a good interviewer.

Who Should Attend?

This session is ideal for anyone who needs to interview and assess candidates. It is especially useful for non-HR managers who want to improve their interviewing skills in order to find the right candidate.
