The Dos and Don'ts of Today's Employment Interviewing
|If your interviewing skills don't use a modern approach, you're at risk for making a costly, embarrassing hiring mistake. Without question, the ability to make informed hiring decisions is the single most important management skill that every team leader, supervisor, manager, business owner and HR professional must possess. Qualified employees drive your organization's success … and unqualified employees can cost you thousands of dollars. You need to know that you can put an end to painful hiring blunders. Stop wasting time and money and be fully in control of every interview you conduct.
The way you may have been interviewed isn't the right approach any longer. Job candidates are prepared to be interviewed – they learned the techniques in outplacement counseling and from job coaches and applicant-oriented websites. When it comes to interviewing, you simply can't rely on "winging it" — it'll only land you in legal and business trouble.
- Create an interview plan to prepare for crucial conversations.
- Apply techniques to put applicant at ease to get better information.
- Construct questions that elicit the information you need.
- Assess the candidate's skills, attitude, and commitment.
- Implement strategies for candidates to demonstrate their skills rather than just describe them.
- Demonstrate ways of staying in control of the interview.
