Hiring Manager Interview Training
Q: Recruitment is easy – everyone can conduct an awesome interview, right?
A: In reality – no they can’t.
Finding quality candidates is hard, really hard – especially in competitive labour markets. You’ve successfully attracted the high calibre candidates to your door and now your interview is even more crucial to a successful hire. This interview is not simply about asking a candidate a bunch of questions about their CV to try catch them out – it is your only real opportunity to impress them and showcase why they want to work with you. This is your chance to highlight what challenges they will have and give them an idea of what their future career progression could look like through your support and encouragement. This is also the time to explain what your Employer Brand really means for them – as most candidates meet more than one person during the interview process it is vital that everyone involved truly understands what their role is and that the message delivered is clear and consistent.
Whether delivered via 1-2-1 training, brown bag lunch sessions or group workshops we will work with your Hiring Managers to get the best out of your interviews. Using a combination of our expertise and case studies plus their own prior experiences we will provide the knowledge and techniques to deal with the following:
- How to plan an effective interview
- Interview Objective Setting
- How to decide what questions to ask
- What questions am I allowed to ask?
- How to deal with challenging candidates
- Controlling Bias
- What is our Employer Brand?
