Evidence Based Interviewing
Critically important to success is a hiring manager’s ability to hire the right people for the right role.
To do this, hiring managers must develop the skills interviewers need to engage candidates confidently, and use a proven system that gives reliable results.
It takes excellent interviewing skills and a proven system to understand a candidate’s knowledge and experience, and to assess their ability, attitude and potential to fit in with the role and the team.

This course will:
