Recruitment Interview Skills


"An employment interview usually lasts about an hour, but its consequences can last for many years. For those who lack the proper skills to interview effectively, an interview can be completely worthless!" Managers and team leaders are usually required to participate in the recruitment and selection process of new employees. However, in our busy world, we often wait to prepare ourselves until just before the candidate arrives. Regardless of whether you interview often or only occasionally, a review of the selection process and proper interview skills will help you avoid problems. The one-day training gives managers and team leaders the knowledge required to select and evaluate employment candidates so that the managers can become important contributors to the staff selection process within their organization. The two-day session includes additional exercises and practice interviews.
