In this webinar, HR professionals, and managers can learn how to prepare, conduct, and evaluate behavioral interviews when hiring or promoting employees; to eliminate subjective hiring decisions and increase effectiveness and validity in the selection process while following legal guidelines.

Why Should You Attend:

Have you ever been completely blind-sided by a job candidate? In the interview he seemed perfect; once hired, he was a disaster.

In this program, Judi addresses both the art and science of effective behavior interviewing. You’ll learn how to prepare for an interview and ask behavior-based questions that enable you to determine the candidate’s abilities based on their past performance. We will discuss how to resist the allure of the flashy job candidate who looks and sounds good in the interview, but turns out to deliver much less on the job. You’ll learn how to avoid the mistake of dismissing quiet candidates just because they don’t may a great first impression. You’ll also learn how to work with a panel of raters to come up with an objective measurement tool that uses past behavior as the best predictor of future workplace performance.

  • Determine the interview format and select the interviewers.
