From May 14 to 15, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the next installment in our HR optimization series will cover Behavioral Event Interviewing, a hiring technique wherein the interviewee is asked to describe an experience from a previous job. The expectation is for a job candidate to talk about his or herself in a way that is unrehearsed and authentic. Our public seminar will help you analyze behaviors and responses in a way that provides insight into job fit, ideal work culture, skills, knowledge, behaviors and more.
The workshop will concentrate on pre-interview preparation, developing valuable questions, strategies and communication techniques. Participants will learn about costs incurred with wrong hiring decisions, develop a fair and consistent interviewing process, and prepare job advertisements for different markets. Attendees will also learn how to interview difficult applicants and effectively check references.
