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 is for you if you want to develop great interviewing skills and learn a reliable system to make better hiring decisions.
This course will:
- Ensure interviewers are aware of the need to make their hiring decisions on the basis of evidence and data, not gut and emotion
- Build confidence and technique in evidence-based interviewing
- Learn important questioning techniques and a reliable system for selecting the right candidates for the right role
