Your hands sweat. Your heart palpitates. Your mind is a confused jumble of fragmented advice and expected behaviour. No, it’s not your first date. It’s your first time interviewing candidates for an important job opening.
Although the ability to hire the right people is critical not only for your organisation, but for your own success and advancement, very few managers know how to tell the difference between a top performer and an ‘eloquent incompetent’. In fact, a recent survey showed that more than forty per-cent of hiring decisions are made on the basis of appearance factors alone.
Our one-day interviewing skills course is tailored for delegates who would like to gain better interviewing skills and learn how to conduct successful interviews for choosing the right employee(s). Our Interviewing course will show candidates how to; gain winning interview skills; give better interviews; be a better interviewer and learn how to interview effectively. As well as improving interviewing skills, delegates will also learn recruitment and employment law.
This course will cover the practical skills needed for successful interviewing and our reputation for effective recruitment training has been endorsed by many delegates. Those who have attended the course have described it as being productive, informative and focused. It allows delegates to understand the stages of carrying out interviews and shows them how to conduct an effective interview so that they are able to attract the best candidates and choose the best person for the job. We guarantee to deliver the best employment strategies, tips and techniques for better interviewing and recruiting skills.
