Better Safe Than Sorry: Legal and Effective Behavioral Interviewing

Recorded Session
60 Minutes


    Have you ever been completely blind-sighted by a job candidate? In the interview he seemed perfect; once hired, he was a disaster. In this program, Deborah addresses both the art & science of effective behavioral interviewing. You'll learn how to prepare for an interview & ask behavior-based questions that enable you to determine the candidate's abilities based on their past performance. You'll learn how to resist 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 learn how to work individually or 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.
